Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks tomer. Pours brown black with a big beige head. Smell of chocolate, cocoa beans, coffee, prunes. Sweet, chocolate, nuts, soy, caramel, a bit acidic flavors, alcoholic warmth down the throat. Medium-bodied, a bit too fizzy, sticky texture. Good sipper.

At a tasting, thanks Roei, small creamy head, opaque vert dark brown color, lots of aromatic coffee, with wood, shrubs, cinamon and dark bread in the back, roasted coffee flavor, some roasted malt and dark fruits, mellow sourness. Very nice to sip slowly, should continue to improve.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at tomer’s place. Thanks tomer. Black with a bit of tan foam. Aroma is burnt and boozy, with wine, dark fruits, chocolate, some soy sauce, charcoal, licorice. Sourish-bitterish roasty flavor, vinous, with dark fruits, soy sauce, some chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. Quite full-bodied. A bit too boozy, but mellows with some time in the glass.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Hawk. Deep and almost black, moderately high carbonation, something of a head. Very powerful beer, lots of roasty notes, deep dark fruit cake and a slightly licorice spicy flavour. Love the Goldings, Imperial Stout with lots of spicy British hops seems to fit together better than an aggressive citrus overload. Very pleasant, and in a big bottle too!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with a bubbly tan head, aroma is quite sweet with some chocolate, light malt a hint of coffee, taste has rich coffee, burnt toast malts, some plain chocolate bitterness, I’d expect a moor viscous mouthfeel of a stout of this ABV, but overall very pleasant and a bold move to put it in a 500ml.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pitch black, creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee (but not that intensive), chocolate and some liquorice. Taste follows aroma, all flavours nicely mixed, semi to low sweet with medium bitterness. In overall tastes good but I had feeling it was very clean, like lager (baltic porter). Alcohol well hidden. Full bodied beer but drinkability was great. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
rich ganache aroma, pitch black with tan lacing, big chocolate flavour with a bit of aniseed in the finish, a bit sickly and a real feeling of the alcohol.
