2014/12/10 - Pours a jet black colour with a creamy tan head that lingers. Aroma is cocoa, toasted malt, black berries and herbal hops. Taste is bitter cocoa, lactose, dark berries, toasted malt, ash, umami and herbal hop notes. Mouthfeel is slick with biting carbonation and a semi sweet, herbal and mildly boozy finish. Very nice. Really developes with warmth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 2014 release, labelled as 9% ABV. Black pour with a medium foamy mocha head. Aroma is somewhat sweet, some dark chocolate and coffee with just a hint of soy sauce. Flavour starts sweet, chocolate and coffee with some subtle cinnamon and nutmeg, finishes with some nice bitterness and roasty flavours, and a touch of hops as it warms. Very thick, oily and creamy with low carbonation, and a touch boozy. A very nice imperial stout!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Received in a trade with dresden -- 500mL bottle poured into a tulip, opaque black with almost no head, with tan/brown bubbles. Aroma is roasty, tobacco, and coffee. Tastes very similar as the aroma although a little muted and much more melded. Mouthfeel is s little thin, but I don’t think it detracts.
