3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015-07-24. Black body with a nice tan head. 3++ Aroma is strong with lots of roast malt and green hops. Flavour is quite bitter, similar roast and green hop character as in the aroma, quite flavourful. I wouldn’t necessarily call it balanced but the flavours work together well. Almost more Black IPA than stout at times. Age has perhaps taken a bit of the complexity but it’s fairly well rounded and rather nice. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Can shared by Tyler.

This poured a darker brown color with a tan head. Aroma was of.herbal bops and roasted malt. Flavor similar, hops help up a decent bit actually.

Held it back a couple of months. Very bitter IS. Hard to finish it. A sipper in drinkability. Black without a retained head.

Hoppy, baker's chocolate, bone dry, lots of carb (small bubbles), bit of oxy. Solid, but too hoppy for my liking.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My only gripe with this fantastic beer is that it's listed as an Imperial Stout. It more in line with a black IPA then a stout. Great beer otherwise!

500mL can, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma brings out lots of roasted malt and dark fruits - great balance for an impie. Flavour is the same, with loads of roasted malt, light dark fruits and some dry cocoa. Full-bodied, roasty and dry chocolatey. Everything is done right here. Excellent impie.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Herbacé, torréfié, chocolaté avec des accents profonds de chlorophylle . L’amertume est enlignée avec la brutalité de la buvabilité.

Yeah, this is a black IPA, but what the hell. Can thanks to theepeeist. Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, roast, citrus. Flavor is medium sweet, roasty, anise, coffee, pine, spruce, citrus, chocolate. Medium bitter and a bit burned. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, lingering bitterness.
