Bottle, 650ml. A black beer with a red hue and a small brown head that fades away quickly. Aroma is of mint, citrics, peppermint and alcohol. Taste is bitter with a strong mint aftertaste. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and some astringency. Slighlty alcoholic finish with a double aftertaste of peppermint. An unusual Imperial Stout, with almost none of the typical flavors, yet very pleasant.

Bottle, 650ml. Almost opaque black with a frothy to minimal brown head. Very hoppy aroma, almost like a black IPA. Robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet malty character with a blunt fruity alcohol finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown almost black with a thin brown ring of foam. Texture is slightly oily and clings to the glass. Aroma is faint but noticeable. Sweet malt and dark fruit like figs or dates. Very smooth and creamy with a nice body. Flavor is mostly roasted malt and somewhat dry. Taste coats the walls of the mouth but is pretty one dimensional. Not nearly as complex as described on the bottle. Hides the high alcohol content well. Not bad but not as good as I expected. If the flavor had a little more variety I would have rated it higher. Pretty good but not great.

It’s certainly black, with some small tan top, but not much retention. Aromas are surprisingly subdued - roasted malt and coffee notes dominate. Flavor is slightly better, with cocoa entering the picture along with slight alcohol - impressive given the abv. Finishes a little dry for my tastes, and I like these big stouts to be a tad sweeter. Will try again for sure though.

From Brewcraft. Drank with Matt after Sandy's boat trip. Opaque black with dark tan fizzy head and streaky spotty legs. Smells of huge roasted malts, lots of coffee beans and herbal/grass jelly hop. Taste is burnt/roast malt, slight spice, lightly acidic/lemon, booze, grassy bitter hop, bitter almost medicinal finish. Body is slick, very bitter, grassy/herbal. Very big beer. Nice to have a stout that has enough bitterness to balance the heavy roast malt. Very good (but perhaps a touch too herbal for my taste).

Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Black thick pour with minimal tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee, nuts, dark fruit and chocolate. Taste is big bitterness at first - coffee and some bitter hops, followed by dark fruit, some savoriness, bitter boozy finish. Nice. Less hoppy flavor than the description suggested but deeply bitter. Good but not great.

D’un noir sans équivoque, la bière est surmontée d’une mousse brunâtre qui s’estompe rapidement. Une délicate odeur de café tente tant bien que mal de prendre sa place dans une marée olfactive majoritairement sucrée comprenant du chocolat, du nougat et de la pâte d’amandes. Étonnamment, c’est pas si sucré que ça en bouche. C’est plutôt rôti, très amer, avec une chaleur alcoolisée enveloppante. La texture liquoreuse de la bière fait en sorte que c’est la parfaite "bière de trop" en fin de soirée!
