3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 24th February 2017, and poured into a snifter glass. It poured a pitch black colour with a one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly but left some nice lacing. Aromas of roasty coffee, chocolate, crème brûlée, caramel, some dark fruits like plum and fig and a touch of smokiness. Tastes similar to the aroma except the dark fruits and char smokiness are more prominent whereas the roasty coffee and chocolate notes are more in the background. There is also some bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was an interesting Imperial Stout. Body was a lighter than I prefer and carbonation perhaps a tad too high. But still definitely worth a try.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Beer Cartel 061016. Hints of smoke and chocolate are the first things that you notice with this beer, apart from the deep space black colour. This is an awesome beer that sits in the mouth and leaves a long slightly burnt aftertaste in the mouth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6 oz. from a 12 oz. bottle; from Old Town. Aroma: Moderate fig jam; moderate coffee roast; light chocolate fudge; light molasses. Appearance: Dark garnet brown with very soft carbonation holding up a wispy tan head. Flavor: Strong fig and molasses initially; roast and chocolate thereafter but in a more dried-out way; the finish has a touch of smoke. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Quite good all around; I like that the sweetness/booze level were both kept well in check; the fruitiness here also reminds me a bit of foreign stouts, which I enjoy.
