A bottle i picked up when i went to the Otley Bunch of Grapes a fortnight back.
An imperial stout, it is 10.0% abv in a 355 ml bottle. Classically appropriate design, it looks so inviting.
Pours black into the glass, a thick creamy tan head sitting majestically on top. It has a lovely expected aroma of coffee, sweet milk chocolate. Its smooth as hell, a creamy medium body is just right, with roasted malts coming through strong for me, bitter coffee, the bitterness carries on to the end also.
This was a great one to sip, shame it didn't last to long, as i loved the chocolate coming on more as it warmed, balanced by tangy dark fruit and alcohol warmth.
