3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the "Lets celebrate the fact that Dean is already the Mayor of M&S Den Haag even though it’s only been open for 24 hours tasting!". Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is creamy caramel smooth toffee liqourice. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich oily liqourice alcoholic bitter palate with a long bitter finish. A super beer and I’d love to drink more but the ABV is a killer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black colour with a beige/brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, oak, peat, whiskey. Flavour is peaty sweetness, warming alcohol (but suprisingly subtle for a 15% beer), touch of vanilla. The BA Imperial Stout is one of my favourite styles, and this one’s a great example.
