3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 No head, thin tan foamy layer very persistent. Very dark brown, opaque, almost black colour. Aroma is black cocoa, burnt malt with prune and caramel notes. Taste is roasted, prune, burnt dried fruits and caramel with some acidity. Dry burnt aftertaste. Full body, average carbonation, very thick and creamy. A real imperial stout!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a thick black with barely half a finger of chocolate milk coloured head. Big and luscious aroma. Sweet milk chocolate, creamy mushroom soup, a hint of booziness as it warms up. Not much roasted malt scents at all. The palate is full bodied with a pleasant sweetness. Medium finish with moderate bitterness. This is just delicious. There are certainly bigger, more complex and more impressive imperial stouts out there, but for pure drinking pleasure this is hard to beat.
