3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Black coloured hue with a beige and firm mid-sized foamy head. Earthy and leathery roast-malty aroma with notes of dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla and a tinge of dark fruits. Roasty bitter flavour with a mildly alcoholic sweetness, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Solid leathery and a bit tarry roasted malt-character with hints of dark chocolate, liquorice and a subtle sour-fruity touch; roasty and chocolatey malty finish with alcoholic and mildly vinous notes. Very good. 03.III.13

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.

Eigentlich recht gut. Schokolade, dunkle Früchte und etwas Alk in der Nase. Fast ein wenig zu dünn und spitzig im Mund, alkig. Sonst solid. Nicht mein liebstes Imp Stout.

BB; 06.2019. Aroma of ash, coffee and booze. Pours pitch black with coke-like foam. Taste is much too boozy, which is really disturbing and covers the rest of flavors. Maybe too young but I don’t think that aging this will help a lot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Opaque dark black, with a few varied-sized dark tan bubbles. Musty, malty, roasted aroma with a hint of cigar smoke. Very strong flavor of roasted coffee, malt, and cigar ash, a bit astringent on the end. Lively, but with a bit too much carbonation for my taste.

Pours black, only a little tan head, which quickly dissipates. Aroma is mainly earthy, with hints of malt and alcohol. Not much sweetness in the aroma. Medium body, warm long finish, which changes to burnt notes.

Black color with nice beige head. Nice aroma of chocolate, ashes, liquorice, dark fruits, and booze. Taste is rich, lots of roasted burnt malt, chocolate, and a little booze kick. A fine classic Imperial Stout. The carbonation is a little bit too much for this type of beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromat bardzo likierowy, słodki, dominuje czekolada i karmel, alkohol wychodzi juz w aromacie. W smaku słodki, dominuje czekolada i likier, czerwone i leśne owoce, lekkie rodzynki, przypalony karmel i czarny chleb. Ris po słodkiej stronie mocy, chyba nieco zbyt świeży.

Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark fruits and booze. The taste is rich and complex with relatively mild burnt flavours along with dark fruits, liquorice, fruit liqueurs and cigar ash. Hints of wood and bonfire. Very pleasant, but quite strong. Plenty of bitterness in the finish. A very satisfying beer.
