Hoozah, I love a good stout. Oil black. Thick tan lacing. Coffee. Slight nuttiness. Hot aftertaste (11 abv) but not overpowering.

13th April 2015
Mother Kelly’s. Keg. Almost opaque dark brown beer, decent tan head. Slightly milky malt nose. Palate is a little viscous but also fairly airy. Sweetish dark malts with contrasting bitter dark chocolate and a trace of Camp coffee that gets stronger. Mild dark fruits. A little spice before a semi dry finish. A bit chewy and some of the flavour jar against each other, but okay.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Cool Wine 170415. Cracker of a big bad ass beer this one. From the thick black colour and light brown foam to the roasted malt aromas and big thick mouthfeel this beer oozes goodness. The finish goes on and on and on. Big alcohol content means that you have to take your time and sip this beer slowly which gives plenty of time to savour and enjoy the rich bold flavour.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beer tasting@Svijet piva, Zagreb. 0.33 bottle shared with Niko. Tasted this after the great Xmas Eve in NYC Hotel Room so I was under some impression of the last one. Pitch black with tan brown head, went away quickly. This one is different - aroma of strawberry jam, red fruits, chocolate and some smoke. Sweet and alcoholic. Stronger than the other imperial porter, long lasting finish. Full chocolaty taste, thick body. Excellent, but I preferred the Xmas Eve better.

A very dak brown colour with a capuccino like head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, pepper, dark dried fruits, peanut, moderate intensity. Very sweet taste, with a not too intensive bittery aftertaste. Oily texture, slightly carbonation. A must one!
