4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Oily pitch black with no head to speak of. Aroma of dark coffee, chocolate, burnt malt. Minimal carbonation, slightly creamy mouth feel with significant long-lasting bitter aftertaste and alcohol warmth. Sweet on the tip of the tongue, with strong coffee and dark chocolate complimented by a definite hoppiness, more hops than your average stout. A very intense beer, to be savoured, and at 10% not to be taken lightly!

Dark oily brown colour with almost no head. Aroma of roasted barley malts, tobacco, little coffee notes. Flavours are the same, with sweet malty notes, alcoholic-coffe finish. Very good, but maybe I expected a little more.

Bottle thanks to Andrew (and Andrew’s dad). Near black pour, thin ring of khaki bubbles. Aroma: roast, chocolate, nutty. Reasonably smooth, well-balanced chocolate and coffee that is sweet (but not too) with light bitter finish. Light caramel sweetness with a good balance. Quite nice.

Look: pours a dark black. Dark brown head. Can't see through it easily.
Smell: huge chocolate. Nice barrel aromas. Vanilla.
Taste: heavy roasted malt. Very smokey. Chocolate powder.
Feel: slightly dry from hops but still sweet from the malt.
Overall: good beer. Aroma and taste diner match up in the beginning but blend nicely after palate adjusts.

Colore bellissimo, nero intenso con schiuma color beige scuro bella persistente. Aroma di malto intenso e dolce cioccolato. In bocca invade la bocca con un sapore di cioccolato amaro iniziale e un bel tostato intenso finale. Stout di grande spessore. Da riprovare.

Fabulous imperial stout. Coffee, chocolate, liquorice all the way through. Looks nice, tastes nice - and at 10% is very alcoholic.
