markas101 (1788) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Sheffield, UK. PhD submission celebration. Dense black, liquorice, resin, spice, coffee. Very interesting flavour, sweet then a spice hit. Long, bittersweet syrupy ending. Probably better than the US imperial stout standards, mainly because of the ABV to smoothness ration.

Opaque black - brown beer, good tan head. Palate is softish and slightly viscous, semi dry with mild carbonation. Rich dark chocolate malt and a spot of coffee. Mild brandy alcohol tone. Just a whisper of chilli, thankfully! Touch of dark fruits. Finishes smooth and dry with a mild roast malt bitter linger. Pretty drinkable for such a big beer. AB:04 was better mind.
