Black body with big ochre head. Aroma of oat, roasted nuts, burnt marshmallow and coffee. Velvety body gives gives way to the roasted malts, molasses, toast, and dark chocolate complex. Well done, as this is an excellent imperial.

From pilsnerPeter’s RBSG 2010. The aroma is roasty, actually ashy and burnt. The appearance is the usual black, tan head. The flavor is also burnt, ashy, roasted malts. The finish is also roasty. Medium in body, thin for this style. Not great.

A jet black pour with fluffy tan head. It is black by the way. Stars do not escape its blackness. Scent is sweet malts, coffee, hints of chocolate. Taste is, well amazing! Coffee is up front with a very nice bitter finish but it is balanced. Super!
