12 oz bottle. Pours black with a little dark brown head. Dark roasted malt, coffee, liqourice and bourbon like aroma. Clear alcohol presence. Lovely blend of liqourice and chocolate in thick oily blend. Minor citric fruit note. Alcohol does shine through. Very strong bitterness. Very strong brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted whole coffee beans with this oily sensation you can find, but also with notes from the brewed coffee with a slight acidity. The flavor is sweet malty and again I find this oily sensation from well roasted coffee beans, combined with alcohol, leading to a dry roasted end. Nice one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours completely black and opaque with a creamy, light brown head. Fat, vinous and very rich aroma of dried fruit and some alcohol. Very full-bodied with plenty of roasted malt, roasted and not really burned. Fruity and quite alcoholic with a malty bitter dry finish. A big beer indeed, to be enjoyed in very small quantities. 030606

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Very black, dark brown head. Spicy licorice aroma. Tastes like cask strength whiskey with loads of licorice added. Sweet with somewhat raw and inky mouthfeel. Plenty of tar. Lingering finish with enormuos licorice character. Powerful, but nowhere near balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16th December 2009
Opaque black beer. Airy chocolate malt nose. Airy light palate. Rich soft dark malt with unsweet dark chocolate and a shot of espresso coffee bitterness. These flavours surrounded by the creamy smoothness and softness of the palate. There is a faint something fruity underneath, well buried. Finishes smooth and dry with minerals. Bitterish aftertaste. Good but falls short of the best.

Bottle courtesy of ryan - thank you sir! Nearly black, medium tan head, great lacing. Aroma of espresso that’s been left on the burner for too long, chocolate, prunes. Taste starts with sweet cocoa, progresses to bitter coffee, dates, raisins. Interesting and complex.

Bottle at ZBF 08, thanks to Miketd for this one. Thick toffee aroma. Along with everything else you would expect from an impy stout. It’s a lot of hops. A bit too sweet and thick. I am not really a fan of Bells and this doesn’t really change my mind. Still, pretty competent.
