Pours black, with high brown head, featuring some lacing. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, sweetness, some spices. Taste is roasted malt, sugar, rhum, some bitterness. Sitcky mouthfeel. Well balanced, though maybe unorthodox.

Bottle 500 ml . Appearance: Beautiful beer. Pours pitch black with a medium brown head. Aroma: Coffee, roasted malt, sweet, rhum. Taste: Sweet, roasted malt, rhum with a bitter finish. Sticky mouthfell. Overall: Not bad. One of the most beautiful beer i’ve seen (appearance). A bit too sweet for an imperial stout. Don’t like the taste of rhum in a beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating from note. Bottle. Aroma of sweet caramel and roasty malt. Dark beer, but with no real head. Taste of sweet caramel and maybe rasins as well. Maybe a bit to sweet, but great balance between sweetness and bitterness.

Bottle at a tasting at James’ place. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige to tan head. Cocoa and rum on the nose, chocolate. A touch almost metallic, but not metal flavors, just an odd thinness to in the body. Softly sweet, more cocoa powder and chocolate on the finish. Easy drinking.

Bortle @ Monk’s. Dark brown/black colour with some head. Burned chocolate alcohol aroma. At least like to think that there is some rum flavour among the stronger chocolate and alcohol ones.

(Draught) Pours black. The aroma is deep with tones of dark chocolate roast, alcohol, raisins, rum and wood. Coffee lurking in the background. The flavour is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Big time chocolate malty with rum and wood to back it up. The mouthfeel is round and full. Lingering aftertaste. Medium to full bodied.
