4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours darker than dark matter with a quick diminishing sugary brown head. Beautiful Stout aroma of dark fruits, chocolate, nuts and coffee. Something quite autumn-like as well. Can’t describe it, but it makes the nose absolutely stunning. Taste is sweet with nice tones of coffee, sugar, dark chocolate and even liquorice. Somewhat roasty in the middle and a nice, warmish coffee and pepper end which is moderately bitter with a nice nutty undertone. Absolutely rich in flavor, beautifully balanced and somewhat complex too. Tasty tenner! Nice oily texture as well. Beautiful round mouthfeel and a well carbonated as well. Wonderful brew in every aspect, deserves a far better rating than a 3,7 average.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je výrazně znát po praženém sladu s nádechem kávy a čokolády. Pěna je mohutná, zlato hnědá, jemná a držící. barva samotného piva je temná. Chuť je hořce čokoládová, zakulacená s výrazným palčivým nádechem alkoholu, finiš je též alkoholový a středně kávově hořký. V ústech pivo působí robustně, má střední říz a je poměrné dobře pitelné. Jedná se o dobrý imperial stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small bottle pours dark brown black with a half finger head. Nose is earthy dark fruit, grape, blackberry, dirt, ash, light dusty cocoa. Taste is on the side of dark fruits with ashy licorice, grape, dark berry, soil, some round bitter dark chocolate, mild heat and spice. Finish is round, fruity, grape, almost has a belgian-stout like character? Not much roastiness. Not a lot of pepper heat or spice in the finish. Good but wasn’t as cohesive or as I hoped, a bit soft around the edges. Still enjoyed it.
