3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Almost black with a fine deep tan head. Very chocolatey aroma with roasted malt and the orchard in flower. Just a hint of really old stout underneath luscious fresh stout. 8+ Silky texture, low carbonation. If the aroma suggested roast in the background and too much chocolate, a sip puts those thoughts to bed. The chocolate is reeled in by coffee, spices and firm bitterness. The roast is more pointed and verges on acrid. There’s a little orange and juicy tropical touch as well. Really quite bitter at what seems to be the end, then there’s a green oakiness that creeps in. I didn’t dislike the finish but it made the beer seem less welcoming.

Black with a very small head.
Hugely chocolaty on the nose with a bunch of roasty & almost espresso like with a bunch of dark fruit & some grapey alcohol.
Plenty of roasty bitterness, sweet.... but balanced enough with big bitterness that it works pretty well. Great chocolate & dark fruit... Nicely hoppy. Huge & delicious.

A black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of both sweet and roasted malts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, coffee, and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Pours pitch black with medium creamy light brown head and good lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, vanilla and wood. Taste starts with moderate sweet and heavy roasted malt and coffee, follows by chocolate, licorice, some sourness and earthiness, too, mouthfeel is warming with well hidden alcohol, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Heavenly good, no relation to hell noticed...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle, bottled 31 Dec 2014. Impenetrable black with decent sized mocha head that recedes to a soapy film. Lots of milk chocolate in the aroma, some soy, molasses, a little coffee, alcohol. The taste has very roasty malt character, burnt black coffee, a little sourness, some molasses, alcohol sweetness, licorice. Less full and creamy in body than expected. Solid imperial stout but the roastiness is a little too acrid.
