3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is growing. Yes literally. Extremely much scent. Heavy flavor that tastes much barrel. The aftertaste is too heavy and would never end. May be the heaviest I have been drinking.

Grande abbinamento di gusti tra la imperial russian stout e il gusto del laphroaig, dove emerge chiaramente la nota torbata che la rende intrigante. Da meditazione.
