4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
26/1/12 bottle on this date - Black, oil looks. Delicious chocolate and coffee aromas are thick and fly out of the glass. There is an underlying roasty/smoky malt bitterness there too. Thick and sweet and smooth. No appearance of the alcohol at all. It’s delicious! Very mild, like an iced mocha of some description. Oh yeah, there’s a little heat in the throat after a few sips. I’d buy it again. For certain. Damn.

0.33 bottle from Hoppiness, Koper, Slovenia. Pours dark brown to black with almost no head. Coffee dominates, dark chocolate, tobacco. Coffee bitterness with chocolate sweetness. Oily, medium body, like ice coffee. Taste is full, but body not so much. Dry finish. Good, but not surprisingly.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours oily black, thin tight head.
Smells of coffee and chocolate with some Christmas fruit, spice and molasses. Like sniffing the bottom of a coffee grinder.
Silky sweetness gives way to bitter morning coffee, that dries further back the palate. Roasted malt. Much stronger on the coffee and far more chocolate.
Body is smooth with low carbonation. Carries the flavour and complexity incredibly well.
One of the better coffee stouts I've had. All the better for being imperial, since the lower ABV ones don't tend to do the coffee flavours any justice. Would love to try a barrel aged version!
