Black brown with a slight reddish tint. Almost no head. Strong notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, earthy. Quite sweet, some bitterness. Upfront alcohol, pretty heavy body, some acidity, almost no carbonation. Long dry finish. Good.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straightforward full bodied Imperial Stout with malts the focus. No over the top bitterness, bourbon, or quirky ’West Coast’ additions. Old World indeed.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours deep black with thin foamy tan head. Aroma is medicinal molasses. Taste is much of the same with additional liquorice and, as such, is not really my kinda stout. Smooth mouthfeel and does grow on me after a while, but essentially not my cup of tea.

Black oily pour. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is chocolate, caramel and malts. Velvety and smooth. Well built stout. Very enjoyable. Not overwhelming with alcohol which made it easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] Inky black pour with a lasting cap of deep brown head. Almost a nitro look to the foam. Heavy roasted and charred malts in the aroma. Coffee and bitter chocolate come through strongly. Flavors of ashy malts, burnt toast, coffee grounds, bakers chocolate and some anise. Earthy hops and some alcohol are evident in the finish. Dry overall.
