330 ml bottle from my EU Secret Summer Santa _angst_, many thanks!
Dark brown body, with a small, creamy, coffee colored head.
Aroma of espresso, tiramisu, cocoa, toffee, some liquorice, some dark fruits, slight ash.
Tastes of espresso, liquorice, cocoa beans, bitter chocolate, tiramisu, dark fruits.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty, quite bitter, but smooth, dry, with coffee, cocoa, liquorice.
Really tasty. Straight and quite comfortable to drink, with lovely espresso notes. Maybe not the most complex beer of tbis style, but very well balanced and round. Great example of a pure Imperial Stout without any gimmicks.

Bottle thanks to my summer secret Santa. Aroma is loads of char and ash, a little coffee and cocoa too. Tastes like burnt wood, bitter coffee, and a touch of chocolate, raisin, and pine. Ashy finish. Love the combo of flavors here since I generally like burnt tasting stouts.
