hmmm did i get a dud? i get some slight kinda cookie dough aromas .. with some hay maybe some balsamic..? pours dull- black but big bubble that fade quickly. almost flat actually. the taste is roasty, charred, savoury, cooking chocolate. the texture is nice. very smooth and oily but yeh, maybe i got a bad bottle...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours jet black with steady carbonation and a white foamy head. A bit of chocolate & coffee in the aroma with plenty of dried berries & citrus hops. Well balanced with a bitter finish. For 9.2% abv, very easy to sup, quite thin palate for the abv. Enjoyed this

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Jet black pour with little to no head. Nose doesn’t have an awful lot to it...dry roasted malt and licorice. Taste is very smooth. Not a massive stout to what I was expecting. Sweet taste but lacks that strong bitterness and roastyness. Easy drinking stout and cool bottle

09/02/2013 Ma che siete venuti a dà (thanks Manuele!). Nera, impenetrabile, schiuma beige leggere, non molto persistente. Al naso malti tostati, vaniglia, cioccolato, frutta matura. In bocca è dolciastra, malti tostati, più cioccolato che caffè, leggera liquirizia, finale appena amarognolo. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione leggera. Non è malvagia, ma manca di complessità e non lascia il segno. Mi aspettavo di meglio.

Mid black with a thin tan head.

Full bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish.
Drinkable RIS but lacking a little complexity to make it a great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Black pour with little to no head. Light cream ring left around the glass. Nose is a little one dimensional and boring. Dry roast, liquorice, slightest hint of smoke. Taste shows loads of liquorice, bitter sweet chocolate, vanilla, cream and warming alcohol. Solid. Quite balanced. Little thin. Good go but not as heavy as I was expecting. Best looking 330ml bottle set though!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Imperial stout molto caratterizzata dal caffè, tabacco e liquirizia ha anche una leggera acidità. Particolare, molto buona.
