I love this beer, and the style. I can not find anything wrong with it. Roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, piney hops, vanilla, oranges with a punch alcohol hidden while you drink, later warming your chest. Astounding.

Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is of chocolate malts, slight coffee, roasted barley with a distinct liquorice scent. Taste is rich and sweet with a bitter kick in the finish. Full bodied, creamy and smooth on the palate, and lively carbonation. Overall an excellent stout.

Appearance: opaque to very dark intense red. Beige head. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, some caramel, raisins. Flavor: Coffee! Raisin sweetness, caramel and roasted malts. Thinner body than expected. But still very nice!

Bottle BB Jun 2013, so one year past BB. Deep black pour, head doesn’t endure. Aroma - chocolate, marmite, spice, alcohol. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is semi-sweet, coffee, dark chocolate, spice, soft orangey and piney hop, touch of cherry, alcohol isn’t coming through at all, very drinkable. Dry finish. This is a beautifully balanced imperial stout and really in its prime at this age. Excellent.

Det här var en riktigt fin imperial stout med ljuvlig balans och en stabil kropp. Smaken bar toner av kaffe och choklad och upplevelsen i stort var riktigt trevlig.

2014-04-25.Black body, nice foamy tan head and light lace. 4+ Aroma is lightly roasty, nice chocolatey notes, dark malt an "imperial stout" character. 7++ Rich dark malt flavour, modest chocolate and mocha throughout, light roast lingers with some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Some greenery in the finish to the hops, lightly tangy undertones. Smooth full bodied palate has light carbonation. 4+ Pretty solid take on the style, relatively simple but also quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
viscous and black as the inside of a malayan tapir. cool creamy tan head with bubbles that sink. serious pipe tobacco and leather armchair sort of aroma (willamette in there) with a fair bit of hop presence. lovely rich and malty body with some fruity new world hop flavours and toasty charcoal. bitter and hoppy. intense and rich stuff, with care taken to layer the flavours - very nice. a bit too much grapefruit from the hops for my liking - not a fan of grapefruit in my stouts - i know im in a minority there.
