Simply the most intense beer I have ever tasted. The complexity of the flavours are so huge it's hard to break them out. It's thick treacle, huge boozy fruits, sherry, maybe port and a hundred other things all distilled into this little bottle and then marinaded in melted oak. A must try! Harvey's Imperial Extra Double Stout won Europe's Best Imperial Stout at the World Beer Awards 2015.

  1. Up to expectations! Review by Pud
    Rating

    Read various reviews and tasting notes, they were spot on. A taste sensation that you want to gulp but need to sip to explore the multifaceted experience that is a truly wonderful stout. (Posted on 10/04/2017)

    Beautiful stout. Smooth as silk with lovely aroma and a very satisfying aftertaste. (Posted on 07/03/2017)

  3. Glorious gloop Review by Bumblebee

    As thick and smooth as a milkshake. Chocolate, molasses and sour cherries.
    A masterpiece. (Posted on 04/02/2017)

  4. Sweet 'n 'sour sensory overload. Review by David H
    Rating

    Stunning. Top beer from one of England's oldest and most revered breweries. Sweet (molasses, cherries, treacle), and, er, sour? Brettanomyces yeast in there? It sets your mouth tingling, and is so thick that there's a brown sticky layer adhering to the bottom of your beer glass when you come to wash it up the next morning, even though you thought you'd drained every last drop. I need a longer tongue... Can I give it ten out of 5? (Posted on 11/01/2017)

  5. Great Review by Jo

    Lovely dark colour, pours like treacle, strong port and sherry aroma, sweet liquorice taste, quite fruity. Thick mouthfeel, a must try! (Posted on 28/12/2016)

  9. My new favourite beer Review by Good Head
    Rating

    This beer is amazing. It is dark with a diminishing head. It is really thick and delicious with a great smell of port and fruits. It smells like fruit cake loaded with booze and tastes like win. (Posted on 05/12/2016)

    If you like stouts, this imperial will be for you.dont let the 9% abv put you off. The flavours hit the nose before you taste it, excellent. (Posted on 27/11/2016)

    I have had this from Beer hawk on several occasions now. A consistently good beer, with flavour and satisfaction written all over it (Posted on 13/11/2016)

  13. Heavy Review by Paul

    Complex, bags of flavours.. It's thick, intense and boozy. Powerhouse of a beer. Must try (Posted on 07/10/2016)

  14. Normal service is resumed Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    After the (slight) disappointment of my second try I returned with a fresh palate, and am happy to confirm that this beer is delicious. Hurrah. (Posted on 16/09/2016)

  15. Not so good second time round Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    Having been amazed by this back in March, I thought I'd give it another go. Sadly this time wasn't quite as good. I'd had a hoppy weissbeer earlier so maybe my tastebuds were a bit off, but it seemed more muted and less complex than before.
    Still, a very enjoyable - and different - beer nonetheless and I've 3 more to confirm my opinion! (Posted on 19/08/2016)

  16. Great little dangerous potion! Review by Mik
    Rating

    Very complex imperial stout. Notes of caramel, coffee and fruit. It is worth to try it. (Posted on 18/08/2016)

  17. Mental Review by change from a 10
    Rating

    OMG, This beer is intense. Nearly blew me head off.

    Was looking forward to trying my fist Russian Imperial stout as I thought It might be the only thing that can match the trappists.

    However this was too much. More like drinking port with an overbearing licorice aroma and taste. It poured like diesel with no head.

    I found it hard to get through but it was an interesting experience! (Posted on 31/07/2016)

  18. Different...but really good! Review by Ben
    Rating

    I have never had a stout quite like this; the fruit flavors are huge, which I was definitely not expecting; a pretty excellent brew (Posted on 29/07/2016)

    Always a winner for me!
    This stout has everything I look for in flavour, looks and aftertaste. Cannot praise it enough. (Posted on 14/05/2016)

  20. Heavy Duty Review by Kaz
    Rating

    This is a big, bad (in a good way) heavy duty beer! As a few reviewers mention it's a complex beer, and its intensity won't be too everyone's taste. But if you like your stout heavy and full of a myriad of flavours with quite a punch to back it up then this is the beer for you. (Posted on 02/05/2016)

  21. So many flavours Review by Jo
    Rating

    Lovely dark colour, pours like treacle, strong port and sherry aroma, sweet liquorice taste, quite fruity. Thick mouthfeel, a must try! (Posted on 25/04/2016)

  22. A knockout beer Review by BJ 53
    Rating

    Not for the fainthearted. An extremely complex, powerful beer, with lots of malt to the fore and a balancing bitterness. Probably the nearest modern interpretation of a Russian Imperial Stout - well done Harveys! (Posted on 22/03/2016)

  23. Absolutely fabulous Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    Small bottle, HUGE beer.
    Pours like treacle, and that's only the start of a bewildering journey. The taste is hard to pin down and impossible to describe properly. Molasses, dark fruit, liquorice, soured cream, coffee, chocolate, alcohol... there's so much going on it's hard to make sense of it all.
    A strange and wonderful thing to take your time over. (Posted on 20/03/2016)

  24. Liquid Toffee Review by Ninja Terrier
    Rating

    This is a very heavy beer in constancy flavour and alcohol content, all of which compliment each other. This is the first Harveys brew that I have liked. Well worth a try. (Posted on 02/02/2016)

  25. Off Bottle? Review by Ay Pee Horne
    Rating

    Surely I had an off bottle, as what I poured out was utterly grim. Sour, spoiled milk with an astringent taste. I\'d give it another go as it\'s clearly not Beer Hawk\'s fault, but my experience was not a good one. (Posted on 20/01/2016)

  26. Lovely. Review by Johnny

  28. Silky smooth Review by LoneR
    Rating

    I have had this several times, and always found it silky, with a sweet aroma and it seemed to change with each sip in taste. Obviously not as silky as say an Oyster stout,this sits on my sunday dinner table as often as I can! (Posted on 16/01/2016)

    This is complex and rewarding. Love the liquorice undertones one of my favourite night caps. (Posted on 29/12/2015)

  32. Top of the class... Review by Ady Gray
    Rating

    Winner of medals this year, this is one cracking, complex, dark, and heavy beauty of a stout. At 9% it is not to be taken lightly... (Posted on 17/12/2015)

  33. Bit too much for me Review by Harry
    Rating

    Gave this a punt, was a bit too bitter and heavy for me. I tend to prefer smoother stouts like milk stouts. Im probably not the best judge for stout like this one. (Posted on 08/12/2015)

  34. Intriguing, complex and at times baffling. Review by TheBeerBooth
    Rating

    Heavy, almost syrup-like, this beer is full of complex and competing layers of aroma and flavour with aniseed and spice, molasses and herbs. Every sip was different and luxurious. Difficult to assess as it is inconsistent (but all good). (Posted on 24/10/2015)

  35. A bit to wee heavy... Review by Cresp
    Rating

    On the nose you can smell dark fruits and hint of liquorice and alcohol. it tastes incredibly sweet, treacle like and perhaps a bit of dark brown sugar. I would recommend drinking this after a light meal because of the heaviness and sweetness of this Stout or at the end of a drinking session. (Posted on 09/10/2015)

  36. Strong, guttsie and a must for stouters Review by Adie
    Rating

    This stout certainly has it all. Taste in abundance with a kick like Stuart Pearse (for those who remember him) If you like your bottled stout, will then you just have to try this...recommended. (Posted on 18/02/2014)
