4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ home. The pour’s deep brown with a medium tan head that takes its sweet time to develop. The nose is definite Belgian yeast, ribbon candy sweetness. Some notes of earthy toffee and medium roast coffee. Hints of vinous chocolate-dipped red berry. The taste is definitely interesting - the belgian yeast gives a bubble gum sweetness that blends well with rich berry flavors. Chocolate cake, rich roasted malts. Mildly nutty, creamy finish. Luxurious mouthfeel. Fruity, pleasant. Nice, soft body. Really well executed and flavorful stuff. Overall, wow, this was much better than I thought it would be. By far the best Bristol beer I’ve had.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (50cl): Thanks GlasgowTAD: Served at 15 degrees Celsius in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized creamy beige head on top of a black beer.
Aromas of roast, coffee, chocolate.
The flavour is a silky thick rich mix of typical flawless stout tones that makes this a perfect stout but also somewhat of an easy drinker. Damn tasty! Creamy! Smooth!
Aftertaste is roast, bitters, coffee, some chocolate, creamy. Delicious!
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel and medium to fuller bodied. Nice!
Another no nonesense stout. Good stuff!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Super strong toffee, demerara sugar aroma with some coffee. Jet Black appearance. Sweet malt taste and warm alcohol feeling. Full bodied and delicious. Maybe a bit aggressive for the newcomer, but if you love your strong stouts and imperial stouts, you will love this offering from BBF.
