Dark chocolate is dominant in the aroma, but there are some vineous alcoholic notes as well as some faint burnt wood and tobaco tones. Almost pitch black with beige head. A bit sweet but not much, mostly is pretty well balances between sweetness and bitterness. None of them stick out. The chocolate is the main player in the taste as well but burnt wood and coffe is pretty apperant.. Finish is a bit dark chocolate bitter. Full body, creamy, average carbonation. A very good and well balanced imperial stout.

Backlog. While it doesn’t quite live up to it’s bigger brother (Pride) this is still a good beer well worth the try.
