Big bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, faint notes of coffee and dark fruits, some light sweetness, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with the roast and chocolate dominating. Smooth texture. A good imperial stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not bad. Very bitter with a little lingering sweetness. Some medicinal qualities under the cocoa, black patent, hint of molasses. Little out of balance on the bitter side for me.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.
