Pours deep black with a deep dark brown creamy head. Aroma is chocolate, roast and coffee. Taste is bittersweet with the roast and chocolate melding together very nicely. Mouth feel is thinner then it looks, but it is very smooth and easy to drink. Some warming on the finish.

[keg at BrewDog Edinburgh] Black pour, with a monstrous pillowy tan head - took three attempts to get me a decent third of a pint, it was foaming out of the font. Ashy chocolate nose, burnt wood and toast. Chocolate on the flavour from the beginning, roasted malt and alcohol leading into the dry, tobacco coffee finish. Very nice indeed - good balance between all of those strong flavours

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost black with a surprisingly large tan head. Smells intensely of roasted malt and licorice. There’s a bit of char and ash to it as well as some interesting dark fruit notes, giving it sweetness. The flavor is quite heavy on the roasted malts with lots of licorice, molasses, and bitterness. There is a touch of smoke flavor in there, too, maybe some coffee grounds and soap. Medium to full in body with medium carbonation.

Keg at Craft Beer Co. It pours jet black with a thick, dense tan head. The nose is wood, roasted malt, ash, smoke and a touch of chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, smoke, earth, ash, dirt, metal and brown sugar, with a bitter-dry finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and well-hidden alcohol. Not bad.

Tap at brewdog. Pours black with short lasting head. Aroma is mostly dark chocolate. Taste is mostly dominated with dark chocolate, has some smokiness as well. Lacks the depth I would want from a big imperial stout. Good and nothing offensive going on
