3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle. Pours opaque black, period. Beige head. Aroma is intensely concentrated. Dark chocolate, coffee, deeply roasted malt and stewed fruit. Surprisingly sweet for a RIS; balanced, but not as bitter as is typical for the style, less roasty than anticipated. Full on the palate with low carbonation. The beer that eats like a meal. Still damn delicious.

Drukket på Mikkeller Ølbar Nørrebro. Skummet forsvinner kjapt, men det er også det eneste å utsette. Prosentene skjules godt av noter av kaffe og humle, uten at det blir overdrevet.

Black brown pour medium brown head. Aroma of molasses chocolate dark dry fruits all play into a taste well accented by bitter hops that don’t take over. Grippy hop-dry and roasty palate washed over with generous rich malt.

500ml bottle from the LCBO. classic american imperial stout. good but not the best example. i wish an ontario brewer could make something like this locally. good depth, decently complex, well hopped, but so similar to so many good american impys
