4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Handbottle 50 cl. Courtesy of TheCheeseMan. Pours pitch black with a brownish head. The nose is rich in hard roast, but also vanilla and and unusual coffee note AND a manure touch! Solid body, hard roast, coffee yes but not overly ashy, a little sweet vanilla accents and a slight tartness as can sometimes be found in very hard roasted beers. Some malt astringency. A lovely and unusual Imperial Stout - thanks Dan! 150311

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Draught at GABF) black as hell, dark tan bubbles, and coats the glass like motor oil. Nose of sweet coffee, so rich, caramel, cinnamon and fudge. Wow this is one of the best smelling beers ever. Taste of fudge, espresso, cigar tobacco, vanilla, so roasty, fresh, and lots of ground coffee beans. The body is thick. This is just one AWESOME beer and the line at GABF proves everyone else thought so too.
