Bottle. Dark liquid like strong black coffee, tan head. Full body, light carbonation. Medium bitterness, bitter aftertaste. Thick, looks like liquor. Aroma of dark sugar and molases, coffee and strong taste of bitter dark chocolate. Very good one. Taste like strong concentrated chocolate cake with coffee.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle served in a Duchesse de Bourgogne glass. Pours black with a dark beige head which almost immediately dissipates into a thin foam over the top of the beer. Aroma is powerful with dark chocolate and dried fruits preserved in alcohol. Taste is less chocolatey than the aroma with coffee notes taking over (just a hint of mocha) and tobacco. Not as complex as some (Black Damnation series) or as powerful (Bourbon County) as some imperial stouts but excellent all the same. A swirl in the glass at the end creates a swiss roll style swirl in the residue foam. Slightly disappointed that around the edges it is dark red whereas as some Imperial Stouts remain the darkest of blacks no matter what. Most similar to Sierra Nevada Narwhal.

Excelente imperial Stout. Muito café, chocolate. Menor torrefação que as Petroleum. Perfeita para um dia frio.

Inte så himla illa faktiskt. Smakar rätt bra och den är ju ganska billig. Bra för att vara en Brooklyn
