4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Indeed, a "JURAssian imperial stout", not just ’an’ imperial stout... Pours dark brown almost black with thin beige head; smell of fresh red fruits, biscuits, tastes lightly sour, perfect body (thick enough but not heavy which is surprising for a 10% abv), mellow in the mouth, has something of a chocolate cake with cherry jam, notes of dark chocolate, dark berries, long bitter aftertaste, bitter cocoa, light notes of roasted coffee. Frighteningly easy to drink for such a strong brew. An UNBELIEVABLE beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an extremely dark brown with a good head of tan foam. Lacing is okay.
I get notes of spicy pepper and what seems like a fruity tartness.
Peppery for sure. Some roasted malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla. overall tastes, I can only describe as rough.
Full bodied with great carbonation.
Strange taster of the style. Doesn’t exactly hit my palate right.
