4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml brown bottle. Best before 2015. Black, opaque, dense looking body, the head is thick and creamy, it is light brown. big rings of lace are left behind. Nose has thick cocoa and roasty malt. Taste has big roast, liquid dark chocolate, subtle bitterness. Finishes dry, lingering roast. Silky in the mouth, but full bodied, carbonation is light. Big, and very drinkable. An excellent beer for it’s price.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black. Rich roasted malty aroma with notes of chocolate, soy and alcohol. Big malty flavour with caramel, roasted barley and hoppy spice. Sweet taste with a bitter charcoal finish that leaves some alcohol on the tongue. Full body, with a soft texture. Overall, a great imperial stout. Rich and tasty, and it does not become cloying despite the sweetness.

Donkerzwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die wegebt tot fijn laagje. Dik stroperig van structuur als je het bier uitgiet. Heerlijk aroma en smaken van koffie, roast, (pure) chocolade, tabak. Lekkere donker - bittere afdronk. TOPstout.
