3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich, dark stout with a thick, chocolate coloured head. Almost black, but with a red tinge. Aroma full of coffee, licorice, tobacco, dark chocolate. Tastes of all those things, but with some surprises- an almost milky chocolate creaminess, and some berries in there too. A definite hoppiness cuts through the cream, but more balanced than in some similar imperial stouts - I would say this is a much better hop/malt blend than Buxton’s Tsar for example, which has a similar load of flavours.

Tap at Brewdog Brum. Black. Nice head fluff. Smells live a greased palm, or a box of Terry’s All Gold. Drinks with a stern finish: graphite, leather, vinyl. Easy to swig, with a bitter tang that lasts and also lasts.
