4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yields a slick viscous black color, with a unique, very bubbly mohagony head.
Smells big times of cocoa, fudge and coffee, wrapped up by syrup and toffeeish malts. Has a whiff of alcohol underneath, providing a caramel burn. The aromas exhibit an interesting interplay between milk chocolate and coffee, leaning even more on chocolate.
Has a fitting, lower carbonation, complimenting the beers medium body.
Tastes of bakers chocolate and smooth coffee, accompanied by bready malts, also revealing glazed caramel. Drinks throughout smooth, coffee comes along with lots of cream, adding a dry bitterness, which gets countered by alcoholic, biting molasses. Finishes with a well pronounced boiled coffee bitterness, while chocolate adds depth, including a subtle sourness.
The beers convinces by its smooth coffee mouthfeel, which gets a lot of depth, due to the luscious chocolate, commuting between sweet and dry. The beers finish is unusually long and complex, revealing crushed coffee beans, toffee, mousse au chocolate among a coffee milk sourness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was expecting one of the greatest imperial stouts, but the fact was that my expectations ware too high. Anyway for my point of view is mix of imperial stout and quadruple. Pitch black head. Aroma has loads of coffee, a llittle Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits among figs. Taste is rather sweet and turns roasty. with lots of dried fruits. Body is really soft. Finish is slight dry with coffee and dark. No presence of the ABV at all.

Right up there with Brooklyn chocolate stout as one of my favorites of this style. Mouth feel is creamy and full. Nothing bad to day about this brew. A must try for anyone who likes this style.
