3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a black beer with a very small, beige head on top that disappears completely within seconds after pouring. Aroma is light chocolate, licorice, molasses and slight hint of coffee in the back. Flavor is moderately sweet, some sugary notes alongside some bitter notes from the licorice. Rather thin flavored for an Imperial Stout. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, no carbonation present. Still good to drink on a cold day nonetheless.
