3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Espresso, cocoa powder, vanilla, roasted malt and dark chocolate.
Appearance: Jet black body with the darkest brown head Iíve ever seen on a beer. Light lacing marks.
Taste: Incredibly drinkable for 10% ABV. Burnt toast, coffee and chocolate, but more fruity and tangy than the aroma suggests (brambles and prunes). Hint of brown sugar in the taste, but overall is quite bitter.
Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Rich, well balanced and insanely drinkable.

Bottle. Darkest Brown with a tan head. Burnt malt, smoke and tar on the nose. The chocolate is more apparent on the tongue and thereís a wack of coffee. Bitter and unyielding yet with a sweetness and a warming alcohol. A very rich and full bodied imperial stout which I enjoyed greatly.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours jet black with a medium, very dense sinister dark tan head. Nose is heavy dark cocoa. Reminds me of the extremely bitter cocoa powder my dad uses for hot chocolates (some crap thats supposed to be healthy for you or something). Taste is very smooth. Smooth dark chocolate with vanilla undertones and light spice which helps balance everything out. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Very good balance for a 10% beer. Drinks very easily. Creamy mouth feel with lingering bitter sweetness leaving light warmth on the finish. A damn good beer
