3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours motor oil thick with a small collar of brown head. Aroma has intense salmiac liquorice, caramel, melted dark chocolate, sweetness from the malts, coffee, roasted nuts, raisins, a hint of alcohol, muskat nød, charcoal and tar. Nice balance. Taste has roasted malts all over the place, tarry, coffee, the roast makes it almost peppery in intensity, dark chocolate and a bit of caramel sweetness, some alcohol which helps give the pepper. Heavy oily palate, not much carbonation. Not the best imperial stout to cross my palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with s small tan head. Aroma has intense roast notes, some dark chocolate, coffee, charcoal, burnt notes, dark fruit and liqourice. The flavor is again mostly on the intense roasty side with lots of burnt and charcoaly notes, I also get the coffee, dark fruit and liqourice. The body is full with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Imperial Stout, but not as good as its hyped up to be.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with a tiny light brown head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, a bit of licorice, and some vineous fruity notes. Sweetish dark flavour of chocolate, licorice and dried fruit, expertly balanced by roasted notes and an excellent hop bitterness. This thing is old school - an imperial stout that you could drink a full glass of, no cloying sugar bomb and no hype, just good beer.
