3.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, this one is complex indeed. The aroma is bad, like sour milk - definitely doesn’t make you want to taste it. Nevertheless, as you get through it, you’ll find that it’s an excellent imperial stout. It’s definitely bitter and really hard to decribe, if you get the chance, pick this up, it’s not for everyone, but the complexity alone, is enough reason to try it.

50 cl bottle. BBE 01.11.12, rated on 04.09.2012
Aroma has chocolate, licorice and coffee. Flavour is somewhat tart with berries, slightly salty licorice and lots of coffee in the aftertaste. Quite thin for an Imperial Stout.

Bottle: Thanks to Fonefan:
Vast medium creamy light tan head, disappears slow, on top of a deep dark brown colored beer.
Smell is a delicious soft smell of vanilla, coffee, light sweet balanced dark fruit, cocos, hint of alcohol. Really good smell!
Taste is very well balanced, you taste the oak and vanilla of the chips, soft and smooth: hint of coffee, light roasted malts, roasted herbs, some darker fruits, light bitter, smooth.
Aftertaste of roasted herbs, light coffee and a hint of vanilla.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.
Delicious beer, soft, smooth, lovely smell and well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small yellow-beige, shortlived head over near-black beer. Warm, sweet-smelling roasted notes, faintly smoked, roasted nuts in sugarsyrup, and a hint at whisky. And quite some coffee, smelt from a distance. Burnt, roasted, but with a very sweet streak; liquorice, treacle syrup and again ending on sweet alcohol, Bourbon- or whisky-like. Not very thick, certainly not for the style. Slight oilyness, and alcoholwarming. Nice stout - txs J. & C. ! ; but I’m very surprised to learn it hasn’t beer whiskyvat-lagered - it tastes and smells like.
