3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours a beautiful deep black color with a huge beige head that dissipates quite quickly leaving a lot of lacings
S: Great smell of roasted malts is simply fantastic here! Really. The high ABV gives it a special liquorous smell. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, wood, Guinness hops
T: Follows the nose. Strong on roasted malts. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla. Sweet upfront and a good stingy roasted earthy hoppy bitter end :)
M: Full body. Creamy. Molasses. Medium carbonation and delightly bitter aftertaste
O: Absolutely drinkable despite the high ABV. Excelent Stout. No mistake here

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a large and lasting tan head. Aroma is unimpressive: liquorice, burnt malt. Flavour is sweet liquorice, metallic molasses, with a strong burnt and bitter finish, long-lasting. Strong carbonation. Some good qualities.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark with a lot if aggressive head, that slowly diminiahes. Smell is strong and slightly sour, gentle coffe notes. Taste is roasted, with a gentle coffee aftertaste, that turna in to a smooth sensation. A good balanced beer, slightly too strong on the first sip.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Versione quasi "imperiale" della classica stout, sembra coca cola alla vista, con una bella schiuma meno persistente rispetto alla normale stout in lattina. Aroma normale, malto tostato, orzo torrefatto. Al sapore lo stesso, a volte líorzo non trova alcun contrasto. Il corpo Ť buono, carbonatazione medio bassa, ma líeccessivo amaro non ha alcun sapore specifico. Birra normale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black, medium sized tan head. Milk chocolate aroma, some vanilla and sugar. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Creamy, medium body, lively carbonation. The more I drink it, the less chocolate i feel, and sugar is more dominant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours dark brown and cloudy with a minimal tan head (less prominent than with an average Guinness). Aroma of yeast, barley, chocolate and roasted coffee. Medium carbonation but fizzy on the tongue. Tastes medium sweet with bitter tones towards the finish. Alcohol is noticeable. Stout with character.
