Imperial stout nera come la notte, con poca schiuma. Aroma di caffè e cacao amaro, gusto intenso e maltoso, tostato e cremoso. Rotonda e corposa, piuttosto classica e godibilissima.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a fading tan head. Aroma of prunes, dates, huts, caramel and a touch of coffee. Body is on the light side, almost no carbonation. Hot, coffee-laden finish with an aftertaste of charcoal.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of charcoal and concrete. Pitch black appearance with no foam. Overwhelming chocolate and fudge flavor with nothing else to it. Overall, extremely thick and full bodied. Chocolate is really overbearing for me. I’d give this a B- rating.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33l bottle from Sörspecialista, Budapest. Clear, reddish black color with small, light brown head. Alcohol, caramel and sweet odor. Delicious, alcohol, caramel and roasted malt aroma. Some spice and spruce hoppy flavours appears too. Medium bitter taste. Unbelivable creamy texture, full body and soft carbonation. Wooden cask flavours also appears, especially in the aftertaste. Is this beer aged with oak chips? Maybe... Malty and alcoholly finish. Delicious, alcoholly and extramely creamy beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Almost looked flat when I was pouring it, but eventually a 1 finger tan head emerged after the beer settled, slowly rising from the depths of hell. Which is exactly where I’m headed pretty soon. Apparently, this is oak aged, but not bourbon barrel aged which makes for a nice change of pace. Maybe. Lets see. Pretty thin looking pour, but a deep inhale reveals aromas of booze, raisins, maybe a little oak, dark fruit. First sip confirms that this beer is not very good. Way too much fruit going on here. Not enough tar and ash. Too sweet. Not enough cock. Meh. No wonder this is a bargain priced oak aged impy stout. Because its fucking garbage. Not sure if I can finish this one. Fuck. I feel betrayed.

Bottle. This is a nice sour impy which is a bit thin for my taste. Could use more ommph in the roasting dept as well.
