33cl bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a complex flavor that includes chocolate, anise and coffee. A very intense tasty brew that finishes dry and bitter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle beer (drink Shop, Tallinn)
Sweetish roast, not as expressive as the sip I had a few nights ago, which was chocolatier. Sweet roasty body, but some massive alcohol hit. Every sip is more alcoholic than the last, which is not a good thing. Sugary, and quite pleasant if it wasn’t for the booze. Brewed too strong, a design flaw, fail.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark body, medium to small tan head. Aroma has roasted pecan nuts, dark chocolate, whiskey barrel. So good. Silky mouthfeel with smooth alcohol warmth. Taste has roasted nuts, well roasted coffee, dark chocolate and some peaty whiskey. Smooth warming finish, the high level of alcohol is well covered and not distracting at all. One of the best Imperial Stouts that I’ve had.
