500ml bottle from Brewdog AGM 2013. Jet black pour with a long-lating dark brown head. Looks lovely in the glass, liquid silk. Aromas of very dark chocolate, hint of roasted coffee, molasses and baked oranges. Taste had a bit of booze heat at first, but this mellowed, and brought about a lovely balanced big beer, with some liquorice coming through. Creamy mouthfeel, very rich, and very good.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick oily black pour, large mocha head. Lovely aroma of charred malts, bitter cocoa, and espresso, with hints of green, piney hops. The mouthfeel is thick and luscious, and a little creamy. The alcohol is a tad bit present in the finish with some light warming. The hops come out a bit more near the end, and the burnt malts really shine. Medium to high bitter finish. Great stout.

Pour was thick...nice cherry head on the beer. For a stout the smell was as expected but the flavour crushed it. Chocolate, coffee and malt on the tongue...with a pleasant bitter after taste. A really enjoyable beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Noir absolu, totalement opaque. Col brun très mince, très peu de pétillance. Assez sirupeux. Goût de pain grillé et de chocolat (fort) avec des fruits noirs et un arrière-goût de café de longue durée. Super Stout…

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cor preta com espuma cor de cafe com leite. Media firmação devedora com boa persistência. No aroma, predominância de chocolate amargo, um pouco de malte tostado. Um pouco também de frutas negras e passas. No sabor o tostado do malte à frente, com chocolate amargo logo na seqüência. Médio amargor e dulçor para uma imperial stout. Teor alcoólico bem equilibrado. Media permanência do tostado ao final. Excelente!

The beer is like a meal. I also tasted it with ice cream, it was good. I give it a lower score only because strong stouts usually are not my thing, I like beers best that I can drink a few of, this beer is good but only in small doses for me. 8 wire IPA however, I could drink that all day long, one of the best beers out there in my opinion!
