Pours a two finger khaki head that vanishes leaving no lace. Black color no highlights. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Licorice nose and flavor is smoky malt and licorice. High ABV is hidden. Seriously expensive at $16.95 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA

Und dann sind diese ganzen Imperialen doch gleich. Röstung, Malz, etwas Kaffee, ein bisschen Nuss und neben ordentlich Perlung auch eine ausgeprägte Bitterkeit. Eigentlich mag ich so was null. Aber dennoch ist das hier ein feines Piwo.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home, bought from RealAle twickenham, drank 17th April 15. Poured wierdly, glutinous and lumpy, however seemed to settle down in the glass. Aroma is ash, smoke, tar, slight rubber, synthetic leather. Taste is full on malts, burnt wood, ash, tobacco, hops in the background, leaving a bitter finish. Dryer than many imperial stouts and well balanced. Mouth feel is very thick for the low ABV. Excellent

Bottle. Pours in deep black body with medium creamy brown head. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate, toffee, home made caramel, really nice. Taste has light alcoholic touch upfront but goes to heavy caramel sweetness, the bitterness is almost none to moderate, mostly with chocolate character. Really nice desert beer.
