3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from Angst as a bonus :) Black with a nice a mocha head that gradually fades to a thin layer. Some roasted and sweet malts, bakers chocolate, some expresso, some smoke. Full body, mild carbonation, bit of alcohol, slightly charred malt, sweet at first then a nice roasty bitterness that becomes quite dry. Really like this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from hop hideout, Sheffield. Poured dark brown with strange gelatinous lumps, bit off putting. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, liquorice and treacle. Taste is sweet and sour and a bit bitter. Very oily and full bodied, mild carbonation. I nearly chucked it after I saw it pouring, but had a tentative sip and it tasted ok, hopefully won’t regret it tomorrow!

(Dugges Idjit!) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9.5%
Black coloured body, with a full finger of thick and creamy, beige head on top. Very good retention.
Aroma is full of coffee, light cocoa, something else that I can’t put my finger on right now, hops? fruits? Familiaar though.
Taste has also plenty of coffee, roasted malts on the finish, liqeur, light moccha, lots of chocolate, hints of the alcohol on the finish.
Medium body, good carbonation.

Pours dark, mahogany brown. Aroma has some strong boozy roast. Taste is first strong and boozy also. Alcohol comes through, is warming and combined with hop kick and roasty bitterness. I am getting also more vanilla and hazelnut in the end. Fully enjoyable imperial stout.
