4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Pitch black body with a pretty much non-existing head. Pours like engine oil. Roasted aromas, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, salty, vineous. Flavor is heavy with roasted notes, vanilla, liquorice, dark chocolate. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden but punches through at the finishing long, giving a long aftertaste.

Black color . Nice , beige head. Bourbon, roasted malt , vanilla and hint of coffee in aroma . Perfectly balanced taste which follows the aroma. Sweet, but not too sweet . Boozy but not too boozy . Gently bite of roasted bitterness at the end.

Donít pick up much of the bourbon in the aroma, but it really comes through in a balanced aesthetic way in the flavor. Everything works here. Not just a strong stout, but an imperial, and you know it. Yet, itís sooo smooth and almost easy drinking. Hope I can find more locally.

Bottle. The pour is black with a lighter head. The aroma has is a lot of booze, and more on the whiskey side than bourbon. The taste is big and boozy, a good beer to share.
