Bottle. Black beer, small off-white head. Nose is chocolate, soy, roast, coffee. Flavor is coffee, roast, citric hops, bitterness, touch of soy. Wood and smoke notes in the finish, citric hops, licorice, roasty acidity. Lingering roast plus citurs from the hops. Oily mouthfeel. Big and heavy beer, heavyness is nicely offset by the hops.

Wow, big beer! Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma isn’t as strong as I thought it would be, but has coffee and malty notes. Love the taste, big bold malty and coffee flavour with nicely balanced bitterness. Wouldn’t think you’re drinking a 10%ish beer. Clean finish with low carbonation. Would happily have more!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from We Brought Beer. Superb stout. Very very smooth mouthfeel. Perfect rich roast meets hop balance, and a nice mellow boozy sweetness at the back. Absolutely top drawer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of tan foam that dissipates fairly quickly. Treacle aromas stand out with loads of bakers chocolate. Soy sauce on the palate, with more cacao and umami. Umami bomb, fairly one-dimensional impy. Just not good enough to be world class. Nice first try at an imperial stout though.
