Intense aroma with lots of dark syrup, caramel roastiness and dark fruits. Even more roadtiness in taste, burnt toast coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is long lasting with coffee bitterness and bit of liquorice. Texture is creamy and body is full. A perfect imperial stout

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. EXP: December 2014. Pours pitch black with a typical imperial stoutish head (creamy, dissapears fast). Aroma: a lot of coffee, roasted malt, raisins, some pleasant alcohol aroma, with a touch of vanilla. Taste: coffee, roasted malt with pleasant bitterness at the end and a warming alcohol feeling in the throat. Slight sourness on the tongue. Fantastic beer, however, I wish I had left it in the cellar for at least 6 more months. It would have definitely got more complex.

Pours a deep black color (engine oil) topped with a dark cream colored head. A plesant roasty aroma, some coffee and some notes of chocolate. The body is creamy, starts with nice little bitterness, followed by a strong roasty feel and lots of coffee notes. Would be very nice, if I liked the coffee notes.
