3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours jet black with a thinner head that is dark brown. Aroma is chocolate and coffee to a slightly lesser extant, along with some licorice and a bit of smokiness. There is a good amount of chocolate in the taste. The licorice really comes out more as a main flavor. This one is a bit sweet, but not to much. It helps mask the flavor of alcohol that is noticed in here as well. Full in body with a thick texture. Flat carbonation. This is a very good stout.

This imp Stout poured a very deep black colour with a dark brown head. Very creamy looking with minimal bubbles and little lacing. Literally looks like used motor oil. Scents include gummy bears, coffee cocoa and caramel. First swig was smooth and very creamy with flavours of molasses, brown sugar, caramel and coffee. Finish is sweet and smooth with excellent roasted caramel lingering.
