3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oct 2012 Bottle is about 6 times more expensive than your average beer. Smells very interesting. Taste - Really sweet, coffee liqueur. Very strong and full bodied, so a sipping beer. Not really what Iíd call a beer, but itís interesting to try and pleasant enough.

This is intense. Maybe a little too sweet for what I was feeling. Huge taste of cranberries and sweet plums. Just about a carbonated port. Alcohol not as noticeable for being 18.2.

Wow. Viscous brown/black, small head. Smell like oak barrel, roasty bits, coffee, chocolate and danger. Tastes more oak, honey, sweet malts, coffee. The cranberry and alcohol both give a sweet port character to the taste too.. Really, really enjoyed this @ Clancyís city beach

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown with a thin laced head. Smells of coffee, roasted malts, alot of oak and booze. An interesting cognac assosiation even when i know itís only oak chips in it. Taste is heavy sweet, super malty, coffee and roast. Super silky smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation, super full body. Heavy bitter finish, a nice break from the sweet body. This beer is really nice. For me though itís too boozy and heavy on the alcohol. The alcohol is warming and stings in my nose. An extreme beer for sure

Ótima imperial stout escocesa com corpo denso, aroma citrico, com notas de carvalho. Breja com potencial alcoólico elevadíssimo. Licorosa, baixa carbonatação. Excelente breja!
