COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

Buena imperial stout, en está ocasión nos encontramos ante una de las cervezas con un gusto a café más marcado que he probado, alternándolo con unos tonos dulces. Cambia de sabor al final produciendo una agradable sensación. Al principio puede llegar a tener un extraño sabor, pero luego se deja querer en boca. No es de mis imperial stouts preferidas, pero repetiría.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Thick roast malt nose, smoke, fish flakes, dark fruit, and alc. fumes. Dark brown. Heavy roast malt, licorice, tobacco, vanilla, and a small coffee note in late mid and final. Heavy, full-bodied stuff. Wow! Has a lot going on. Smooth and boozy, but doesn’t really feel like 10%

Impressive licorice aroma with a sour twist in an inky black pour. Taste is the same - with hints of chocolate and coffee and a tasty sustained finish.

karpik (240) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Great aroma of bonfire smokeness with chocolate and coffee. Pours pitch black with small but stable tan head. Taste is medium dry. Beer is very smooth and incredibly balanced between smoke and chocolate. Finish is medium, herbal bitter. Overall fantastic!

likeatrainwreck (155) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Massive peaty malty aromas... the flavour follows suit, big roasty, boozy, whisky, coffee... warming. Quite a thin body and not too sweet, which makes it alarmingly drinkable. Stunning stuff.

Bottle from Saveur Bière (2014/11). Low, creamy, beige/brown head. Black body. Smells of roasted hops, coffee, nuts, leather, oil. Tastes strong of salt, licorice, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted hops, very spicy. Sweet, salt and bitter. Clear finish (thankfully). A surprisingly different touch to this beer which I appreciate, even though it’s not particurlarly a beer I enjoy that much it’s a good brew none the less.
