3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From tap. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, melasse, raisins, soy sauce, light coffee and licorice. Taste is very heavy on the roasted malts, licorice, soy sauce, no rum character at all. Thin body - especially for an 11% beer. Not my kind of imp. stout.

Pitch black colour on the body, one full finger of dark brown head on top,thick and a bit creamy too, with great retention.

Taste also of roasted malts, smoke, meat, light rum but it’s there, alcohol notes every now and then, chocolate, vanilla, some fruity touches too.
Thcik body, carbonation just right. Sticky palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear, black, nice head. Aroma is good chocolate and a little bit alcohol. Better chocolate in taste, good goffee too, which lasts long in aftertaste. For me a little bit to high carbonated.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s a great imperial stout, but it’s not perfect in any aspect. Really nice roasty, toasty, malty, chocolate and coffee aroma, full of rum notes as well, but it’s not punching you right in the nose as I was hoping it will. The same is with mouth feel - rich and almost full, but it’s not pours around your mouth with this huge density and thickness. Taste is great though. So rich, so multidimensional.
