4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle picked up last year at a staggeringly reasonable £4. Bottled Sep 2012. Black beer with a small off-white head. Aroma - yeast, alcohol, milk chocolate, smoke, coffee. Body - medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - very smooth malts, chocolate, some red berry, light vanilla, whisky-and-coke, no alcohol. Just ultra-smooth. Much better than expected. It’s not often my girlfriend likes an imperial stout, but this is one of those rare occasions.
