4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a gorgeous solid black with a caramel tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, some burnt espresso, and caramel notes. Flavour is intensely roasted yet also sweet in the right places, with hints of vanilla and plum. An exact collision of mcberko and my favourite aspects of a good Imp. Stout...he likes them intensely roasted, I like them a little sweeter. Wow. This is viscous, rich, creamy, smooth, beautifully balanced, perfect carbonation. Yum! Poured lightly chilled - I bet it is more flavourful a tad warmer - if I can make it last long enough! Rare :P

Perfumey smell, milk chocolate aroma. Also smells like a baked pie. Melted chocolate pour with nice brown edges. Great stout but misses depth, needs ageing or complexity from something else. Fantastic nonetheless.

Lovely creamy mouthfeel and the chocolate notes balance the large abv of this one. The only thing might be better is the barrel age or vanilla varants.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a very thin mocha head. Aroma is of chocolate and a lot of dark fruits: dates, prunes. Very sweet taste for an imperial stout with a slight bitterness to balance it out. Full bodied, lively carbonation, creamy on the palate. Overall a very good stout.

Black, smoooooth, and awesome! Strong without the astringency. Coffee, caramel, chocolate and malt with sweet finish that demands the next sip.
