4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black, with a huge dense dark mocha head. Aroma of huge coffee, chocolate, roast, and sweet dark caramel orgy. Not kidding. It smells like all these great flavors are having sex in there... Taste, well, rather like it smells (orgy and all) more roast than in nose, warm alcohol down the throat. Just what an Imperial stout should be.

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Black pour with a tan head. Nose of burnt malts, chocolate and booze. Flavour had plenty transpiring and was comprised of dark fruits, coffee, roasted malt, grains, and more chocolate in tandem with some subtle hoppage. ABV pretty well smothered. Smooth, full and very drinkable. Quality stuff.

Pitch black. Creamy espresso head. Roast bomb with ashy charcoal and chocolate. Taste is even better. Great profile that would taste great in a barrel. Roast chocolates, coffee, creamy vanilla and spice of rye and pepper. Easy to drink with just a minor hint of booze
