Coffee, chocolate, licorice, nuts and a hint of soy sauce in the aroma. Almost black with a red tint, tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really nice Imperial Stout, really rich in flavour, full, creamy body and well hidden alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 05.03.2015
Aroma has well roasted malt, cocoa and some toffee typical to English ales. Flavour has ash, salty licorice, cocoa, some hoppy tones, hints of coffee and vanilla. Too hoppy and ashy, a bit disappointing. Gets a bit better after some sips though as the licorice notes grow stronger and ash steps aside.
