4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 Rating #420! Pours a jet black with a HUGE tan head that takes forever to dissipate. After opening and smelling the booziness of this beer I am maybe regretting trying to finish this 750ml myself. Definitely coffee and alcohol in the nose. The taste is amazing. I was expecting your typical harsh imperial stout taste but there is none of that. Just smooth coffee and malt flavor. Oh my this is smooth and dangerous. The mouth feel isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as thick as I would have expected but it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter. The beer rolls around in your mouth like butter. Wow this is great! I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to taste my other bottles in a few months.

Drank this while at RAF Fairford -- This beer was hella good. Great stout, would love to have more of this. Dark mysterious and comforting.

Pours dark almost Black. Head is Brown, thick and almost never vanishing. Nose is dark Dryed fruits raisin and liqurice. Rosted malt very dominant. Taste is rich some metal and very sweet. Creamy mouthfeel warming finish. Silght taste of alcohol and long residual stickyness in the mouth. Awesome but holy god 12% alc. That bottle is gonna kill me...

Smells like booze, chocolate, and soy sauce. Very low carbonation. Mouthfeel is semi-creamy and semi-foamy. Taste is alcohol, coffee with cream, some caramel, and dark chocolate. In that order. Aftertaste is long length. Starts off with alcohol taste and warmth. The alcohol taste goes away before the warmth does. After about ten seconds, the taste transitions from alcohol to coffee and dark chocolate.

Strong....very very strong. It's 12%. It's chocolatey and continues on into a soft, dark caramel finish.

Poured from a year and a half old bottle. Looks great in a glass. Nice tanned head.
Smell - not that strong smelling. I am picking up a little bit of alcohol, some dark fruit, subtle coffee, not much to be honest.
Taste - it’s a huge stout. The coffee has faded a bit, I’m actually a bit dissapointed in this. The alcohol does come through a lot. Not the smoothest to drink, and honestly not one of my favourite stouts.

Pretty good. Tastes good and chocolatey. Slightly aromatic. About the same class as KBS I’d say

Jet black pour with an espresso colored, single finger head. Aroma is sweet and chocolate like. Aroma is unfortunately pretty faint. Creamy mouth. Lots of chocolate. Slight alcohol burn. Lots of bitter coffee on the finish. For 12% this is highly drinkable. Pretty unassuming, but this is a very tasty stout. Lace present.
