Draft at Zeno’s. Pours black, rimming, lacing brown head. Chocolate and licorice nose, with the same for taste, though cloyingly sweet. Hops brighten it at the end, but bitter, sticky, thick and chunky.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours jet black with a small brown head and some lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate, citrus, raisin, something odd - burned caramel? caramelized pine cones? Not sure. Same with the taste - light sweet and medium bitter, but definitely a strange note in there. Interesting, not bad, just strange. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting experience.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured pitch black with a lasting medium brown head. Very hoppy aroma, even for an imperial stout. Good chocolate and roasty qualities but the hops really shine. Nice creamy body, long bitter finish, and well hidden alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of allesmetkaas, @ Rampkrot tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a small layer of beige head on top. Aroma of wood, oak, molasses, dark burnt caramel, light boozy. Flavour is sweet, alcholic and slightly unbalanced. Thick, sugary mouthfeel and a medium long, sweet finish. Not too complex, yet quite good.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to allesmetkaas @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 65 cl. Bottle sampled. Black with little mocha head. Sweet with a reasonable amount of roast, coffee, light liquorish, chocolate, touch dark fruits and dash of booze. Slightly viscous, touch less carb. Certainly enjoyable.
