Strong aroma of chocolate and coffee, very, very smooth. Nut flavours linger on the palate. A great example of an imperial stout. Get it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Inky and opaque with nice big creamy mocha head. Big chocolate and mocha coffee in the aroma, with hints of cheesy vegemite and vanilla. Heaps of roastiness and charcoal in the taste, with underlying treacle sweetness, dark chocolate, bitter coffee and cream. A little thinner than I expect in an imperial stout. Good effort overall.

Tap at déjàvu. Pours a pitch black with a solid tanned head. Superb lacing left around the glass. Aromas is big on the sweet bitter cocoa, coffee, roast malts and vanilla. Taste has the bitter coffee and malts up front with the chocolate vanilla backbone coating the palate. Vanilla really smooths it out. Palate left dry and wanting more. 10% abv hidden well too. Pretty pleased
