4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (500ml). Poured black with a good sized dense, tanned, frothy head which lasted very well. A complex aroma with notes of treacle, roasted malts, toast, smoke, coffee beans, Belgian truffles, raisins and fleshly ground black pepper. Flavor was of toasted malts with a good level of bitterness, lactic/sour milk notes, bitter black coffee, large notes of black pepper, homemade liquorice, molasses, dark rum & raisin chocolate, currents, pleasant earthy notes and a superb dry finish. Noticeable alcohol content. Very full bodied with soft carbonation, an oily texture, thick/ chewy mouthfeel and a long finish. A truly remarkable Imperial Stout.
