Excellent line-up there, the Imperial and strong stouts in particular. Tenfidy's Imperial Stout is as good as Courage's Russian Imperial Stout was, maybe better. The London cognoscenti are in for a treat.

In many ways, most of those beers are returning to England tastes and ABV levels not seen for generations there.

I think the craft/real ale fans in London will be hugely impressed by these beers.
