4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl, bottled on 09/05/2012. Black colour with small/medium light brown head, looks good. Really nice coffee grains on the nose, dark chocolate and nuts. Lovely. There’s coffee in the flavour, but also lots of roasted malts. The hoppy touch is quite evident as well, with hints of dark chocolate and sugar. A bit thin for an Imperial Stout, decent in carbonation though. So pleasant overall, good job.
