3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost a finger of tan head. Pitch black body.
Smell is roasted malt, charred wood and molasses. Nice and bold.
The taste is roasted malt with a touch of sweetness and a dry bitter finish. Pretty good.
The body was a little light and fizzy for an imperial stout.
A well built ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is of course, roasted malts, caramels, bread and chocolates. The taste provides with a rather distinct attack from heavy roasted malts at first and slowly tips over towards dark fruits, liquorice and coffee. The finale is actually pretty light and thin which had me a bit confused, as I expected a true bitter and longlasting effect, but no. Still a pretty good Imperial Stout, even if it’s a bit low on the abv and the thin finale.
