4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black with a ton of head to start, dissipated quikly. Aroma is chocolate, molasses, vanilla, booze, roasty malt, tobacco, and rather sweet. Flavor is slightly bitter, coffee, dark chocolate. Finishes extra dry. Alcohol is nicely hidden and doesn’t come across like it does in the nose. Carbonation is rather lively, and helps release the flavor and perhaps hide the alcohol. This is a very nice brew.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beer tasting@Svijet piva, Zagreb. 0.33 bottle shared with Niko. Pitch black, small brown-tan head, like tan spots on the surface, went away quickly. Strong caramel aroma, dark bread, chocolate and dried plums. Taste is licorice, bitter with toffee sweetness. Very complex. Incredibly full body, long lasting bitter finish. Some might find this lingering bitterness to much, but it’s just what I like about this imperial stout. Almost perfect!
