4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark mahogany, clear, minimal brown head. Nice aroma of cigar-box and leather. Silky palate with stewed figs, raisins, cherry pipe-tobacco, and a nice leathery dryness in the finish. I agree with some other raters that this may not be full-bodied or roasted quite enough to fit into the imperial stout category, but as a porter it is exceptional. I enjoyed this tremendously.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep and dark amber almost black colour with a persistent frothy tan head. Roasty malts aroma, spices and some notes of dry fruits. Malted and roasted taste with light sweetness and light bitterness. Round flavour. Creamy, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. I had the tap and it was not so robust and it had a light to medium body. Meanwhile on the very nice designed bottle it tends to be more a full body stout. Very good, a must try.
