3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
100ml sample at Hanshin Dept Store.
L: jet black, no head, like syrup. A few tiny bubbles.
S: Rich roasted chocolate malt. So much dark chocolate.
T: boozy, like bourbon, but with dense malt and chocolate. More
bitter than sweetness.
F: slight carbonation, coats the throat and lips, full-bodied.
O: decent sipper, I like my stouts a bit lighter and more complex. The supposed chili didn’t really come through like how it works in Prairie Bomb.

Bottle. Aroma of roastwd malts, coffee, chocolate, licorice, dried fruits and vanilla. In taste sweet, syrupy, dull bodied, oily. Smooth and silky on the palate with solid bitterness and warming from alcohol in the finish. I do not detect chilli in beer. Great beer.

The beer poured black. Its head was small and brown. Aroma had pepper, chillies, roasted malts and coffee. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, chocolate, pepper, sweetness, chilli, hops, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was peppery, roasty and bitter. A very tasty combination of chilli peppers and imperial stout with coffee in the background.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Batch 142, bottled on 17. 6. 2013: Black opaque colour with brown head which dissapeared in a minute. Without visual carbonation. Aroma: discrete presence of alcohol, namely presence of maltines aroma prevails: chocolate, coffee, vanilla, little dried fruit (plums), roasted, but without notes of hops.
taste is similar: firstly you notice alcohol, but than immidiately prevails notes of malts in Naga Chilli. On the second hand you detect notes of hop (flovers, herbs, little spicy).
Hop bitterness is low, malt sweetness is medium. Body is full and adhesiv, bitterness is low, also in finish. Complex beer - a piece of Masteripece!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,33l bottle. Dog C. Batch 194, bottled on 20.6.2014. Lovely aroma of chocolate, coffee and licorice. Pitch black with brown head. Fizzy head. Oak and coffee aroma when poured. Strong hit of licorice when tasting. Lovely hidden ABV, smooth, silky mouth feel, mild and not too astringent. Leaves a coating on my teeth. This is just deep, dark and beautiful. Shame about the steep price. Low carbonation.

PunkAGM2015 rate catchup from notes. 6/6/15. At Brewdog Aberdeen. This what I should’ve followed the Mikkeller Black 2014 with! Smooth and lovely imperial stout, faint heat from the chillis otherwise coffee and chocolate. Delicious.
