3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours jetblack with a small frothy brown head. All I get from the aroma are the roasted malts and a bit of chocolate. Taste is of lightly roasted malts, sweet dark fruits, chocolate, molasses and licorice. Has the taste of malts, licorice and...smoke in the aftertaste. Body is above medium but not full. Very sweet imperial stout and has no bite. Not bad, but nothing special either. A bit boring really.

500 ml bottle. Close to black body with a small beige head. Strong and pleasant in aroma, dark malt, coffee, chocolate and dark fruit.
