3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Thanks MadMitch: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Deep dark brown to black pour. Medium sized, slowly changing, dark beige to brown colored foamy head on top of a black colored beer.
Aromas of roasted barley malts, leaves, liquorice wood, hints of raisin, coffee, floral roast and hay roast.
Flavours of roasted malts, nuts, yeast, some chocolate, some coffee, bitters, roast, some hay toast, light spicy, some toasted leaves and (autumnal) herbs and something light floral...
Aftertaste is a mix of hay roast, malt roast, bitters, nutty, light coffee and light spicy.
Low carbo, creamy oily mouthfeel, full body and a oily sticky texture.
It’s not as black and dark in flavours and aromas as some of the top beers in this style are, but it has an easy touch to it, while it is good roasted and such, but also lighter in alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 bottled(delirium snifter) I swirled this glass of purple/brown beer for one minute and mostly received chocolate pudding like qualities in the aroma . From this its not really suggesting this will rock my ass-its kinda shy . . To sip on this imperial, I find roasty malt of course .bitter dark chocolate. burnt toast . raisins . sweet toffee too to complement these textures ...Although this beer flirts at you ,it never really delivers . It is for me lacking the complexity that ’makes’ this style fun to drink !

Bottle. Black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is gently roasted, and the flavour is deeply bitter with a fortified and roasted flavour. Overall a nice strong stout.
