Cask at Real Ale.
A: Brown that borders on black with a crimson tinge at the bottom.
S: Bold coffee presence with nuts and earth. Cocoa accompanies a tame roasted presence. Very nice nose.
T: Roasted grains and a firm coffee presence that's earthy and nutty. The roasted profile is smooth and not at all acrid or harsh. Lots of dark chocolate and a mild bitterness. Alcohol is faint.
M: Full body with a silky, sticky, chewy mouthfeel.
Overall: A very nice coffee imperial stout. Highly drinkable. I think I'll pick up a bomber of this. This was very good on cask.
Serving type: cask

A: Pours a nice black with a head that stays lingering thin around the edges.
S: The huge nose on this is a majority of coffee and chocolate with a struggle of roast on the side
T: A deep grainy wheat bread characteristic that is quite thin up front and mid tongue, and tries to amp up the flavor as it rolls down the tongue revealing a very subtle coco characteristic with low level if heat. Nothing really jumping out at you
M: Pretty thin for an imperial stout. Little too dry IMO for the style.
O: It's a decent I Stout, not mind blowing like i had hoped it would be. But still a decent offering
