Kolsvart med rödkant. Skumkronan försvann snabbt. Doftar lite bränt, men smaken mkt bred sötmalt & alkohol. Eftersmaken ihållande bränd kola, mörk choklad med lakritstoner. Förhållandevis lite kolsyra. Lite väl "tung" för min smak.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter black as sin with little head.
Aroma was like sniffing a bag of chocolates.
Flavor is peaty bittersweet cocoa with molasses. Distinctly an imported American Imperial stout-oxymoron??
Thick nice mouthfeel. SerIously love this stout.!!!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into a snifter. Aroma was of powdered cocoa, very nice. Appearance was black brown allowing no light to pass through it. Had a small tan head that dissipated quickly. Taste compared with aroma was dissapointing. Flavor is dry dark chocolate. It has a strong dark chocolate bitterness to it. Palate was not as viscous as I was expecting and carbonation was weak. Overall it is ok and I’d pass on this in future. Many much better imperial stouts out there.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque dark brown with a good brown head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is woody bitter chocolate syrup that turns sweeter as it moves through the palate, then adds bitter again in a lingering warm finish. Thick and sticky, full bodied, best for sipping.
