3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 0.275 l bottle. It poured almost black, red hued body with a small brown head. Strong aroma of licorice, roasted malts like coffee and cocoa with some sweeter fruity notes. Flavor was lightly sweet, also a bit bitter, all from roasted malts where the coffee dominated. Cocoa, brown sugar, some licorice made it up as well. Medium complexity, I thought it would be higher. Medium body with longer, sourish coffee finish. Okay, a correct and enjoyable imperial stout, although quite an average or sub-par one. Also overpriced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Totalmente negra, turva, espuma marrom cremosa de média formação e boa persistência. No aroma mais chocolate, avelã, nozes, malte intenso. Torrado aparece mais no paladar mas de média intensidade, mantém o equilíbrio com o dulçor médio/intenso. Corpo licoroso, média carbonataçao para o estilo. Final de média/longa persistência mantém o equilíbrio do dulçor achocolatado,cacau, toffe em menor intensidade. Muito boa, mas não chega a ser uma referência no estilo.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from The Wine Emporium 101116. Little bottle that packs a big punch. Holds the alcohol really well and you wouldn’t know that that was a 10% ABV beer by just drinking it. Dark and deliscous with everything that is good about beer packaged into this one bottle.

Bottle. Pours deep brown to black with a small, fizzy, brown head. Aroma has heavy roasted malts, dark chocolate, lovely licorice notes. Light vinious. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good malty sweetness, chocolate, a touch of rubber, light milky, light coffee. Good, lingering warmth. Very elegant.
