4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught @ CBC 2014, Copenhagen. Pours a pitch black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is very rich with tart wooden notes, rich green apples, biscuit and rum. Extremely rich flavour of roastiness, chocolate, biscuit, massive amount of green apples, wood, some nutmeg, cinnamon and earth. Mild chili burn, which is quite elegant. Full bodied and an extremely dry, wooden, warming finish. This beer has everything. It’s hard to make an imperial stout better than this.

Poured a dark black color from the bottle with aromas of bakers fudge, light spicy peppers, some earth, vanilla and some booze. Flavors were spicy fudge dipped in rum and brandy. This is some pretty good stuff that is thick and delicious.

This one poured an oily black color with a tan head. Aroma was of lots of cinnamon, apple brandy, fudge, and light chile notes. Flavor was similar, everything melded together perfectly, moderate heat, cinnamon fudgy richness and barrel. Grat stuff.

At jacob’s with group. Pour is black with faint lacing. Aroma is sweet complex bourbon/brandy, big delicious roasted malt, cream brule. Taste is phenomenal, complex malt, some cinnamon spice. It is hard to describe, it reminds me of rare, has a beautiful unique sweet booze note in there, so savory and so good.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Wow this is unbelievable. The aromas are pouring apple pie, port, vanilla, coconut and some booze. The taste has so many flavors. Cinnamon, apples, chocolate, nutmeg and there are some really tight tannins in this. Finish long with more cinnamon and nutmeg. Exceptional.
