Bottle. Thick black pour with thin mocha head. Aroma is raisin, char, licorice, fudge and marshmallow. Taste is similar and adds some toffee. Rich sticky mouthfeel but leaves a slightly buttery feeling on the lips. Great.

Deep brown color beer with a brown forever-lasting frothy head. Aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate and liquorice. Flavor is sweet with a slight sour final note. Body is oily and carbonation is low. Very long end with bitter notes; sticky.

Bottle from Party Source at home. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, dark fruits, cherry, raisins, light roasted malts, caramel, and hints of coffee, smooth lower carbonation, I find many European Imperial stouts to be less roasty and not as enjoyable overall.

Lele (249) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
ASPETTO: marrone scurissimo, praticamente impenetrabile. Schiuma marroncina, abbastanza abbondante e persistente. AROMA: caffè, cacao e liquoroso dono predominanti. Aroma molto buono e avvolgente. GUSTO: Pieno e avvolgente. All’inizio si presentano soprattutto caffè e cacao (sia dolce che amaro), nonché della buona vaniglia. Il tutto è accompagnato da un buon liquoroso. Il finale è leggermente amaro, di un amaro tostato. Corpo strutturato, carbonizzazione bassa. CONCLUSIONE: veramente gran bella birra. La trovo un po’ meno complessa della sua versione bourbon, ma ugualmente molto saporita.
