3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain), with notes of raw wood, whisky, vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Rather plain and non-Imperial...just kind of a strong-ish dry stout. Nothing wrong with it, just boring. Awesome appearance though...opaque and very nicely lasting head.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, thanks to Jens for sharing. Near black with a lasting tan head. Big and vineous fruity and malty aroma with whisky and oak, and a faint touch of smoke. Sweet and slightly roasted flavour with fruity notes. Initially quite intense, then a pretty flat middle, and finally a hoppy and long lasting bitter finish
