This was fun. Good bitterness and dry palate balanced with the sweetness you get from the style made this an extremely easily enjoyed imperial stout. Well, well made.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colour of black engine oil. Big and rocky beige head. Nice lacing. Intesive aroma of chocolate, licorice, smoky/woody note with some hoppy (resin/earthy) notes. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter and slightly dry with very long finish (mainly roasted malts). Soft carbonation. Full body. Rich and tasty stuff, despite of 11% ABV it’s quite drinkable. Reaaly good RIS.

Alrighty. Aroma is coffee grounds, dark roasted malts, slight vanilla, licorice. Taste brings quite a lot of coffee and a nutty bitterness. Roasted maly and with a lingering dark chocolate effect. There’s some wooden notes in here as well. Really good impy.
