JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2008
A very easy, drinkable imperial. Full of great cappucino, cafe au lait, oatmeal, and cedar. It is slightly over carbonated, but acceptable. Also, the ABV is well incorporated, could be higher though. The IBU’s are slightly weak, but lend to the easy drinkability.

Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a dark, chocolatey tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, and alcohol. Heavy body. Finish starts sweet and ends boozy and acidic; ABV is apparent. Still, it’s quite good.

Bottle purchased at the Hoppy pub in Thessaloniki-Greece, consumed almost 2 years later. Black pour, brownish foam. Nose: rich choccolate, coffee, some cream too. Mouth: nice! Roasted malts, hops, a bit more flat after almost 2 years aging but easier to drink. Nice!
