4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rating #500, bottle from HogTownHarry. 355ml brown bottle. Deep brown black colour, oily, small trace of fine mocha coloured bubbles appeared on the surface, but soon vanished. Very rich aroma, coffee came through at first, then hops, then chocolatey malts. Full, thick, viscous body coats the mouth. Very gentle carbonation. Huge flavours - it is at first sweet, then coffee/roast malts and chocolate appear, lingering bitter hops in the finish with some warming alcohol. Flavourful, bold, but still manages to be balanced and very drinkable.

Svart och fin. En väldigt tydlig, ren och balanserad Stout. Smakerna sitter där de ska, mycket god.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dang! Thatís tasty. Itís like opening a bar of dark chocolate mixed with rich toasted (almost burnt) grain. Taste is strong, bold and deliciously chocolate, malt, toffee, raisins. Pours like spent motor oil--nice work. Finish is not too sticky and has a nice bitter punch. Age this for when the zombie come...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of licorice, leather, chocolate, burned sugar, raisins plum. Taste is very complex, plum, licorice, chocolate, with a solid roasted coffee chocolate and herbaceous bitterness. To me one of the very best "clean" Imperial Stouts with Ten Fidy.
