3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Imperial scout dall’amaro potente, oserei dire preponderante, tanto da coprire, a mio avviso, anche altri sapori. Il rum, a differenza di quanto dice il nome, non l’ho sentito. Ho avvertito invece un deciso caffè, interessante certo ,ma che tende a monopolizzare tutta la bevuta. Sicuramente sopravvalutata.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
50 cl. bottle at home shared with girlfriend to accompany a Beeramisu (!) where the ladyfingers were soaked in this brew instead of a liquor. And it worked! Great dessert and this extremely rich brew once again showed its powers. Dark, intense, with notes of smoke, coffee, oak are dominant though in this particular batch, the rum was not too prevalent. Not very fizzy, but then the bottle had been opened for a while when we enjoyed it. As the bottle had a 2022 last sell by date, it was a pretty young example and they do get better with age. Won awards when it was introduced in 2008 and it still holds up. If you are a Porter/Stout enthusiast, you must try this mamouth!
