Pours black with a medium tan head. Aromas of rich dark fruits. Plum, raisin, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is much of the same with a little spice, nutmeg and coffee. Finish is sweet with a little touch of bitter chocolate. Good flavors, but feels a little off balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler thanks to Eugene. Clear dark ruby-highlighted brown, minimal head. Sweet, graham cracker with roasty, balanced finish. Lasting bitterness mixed with lingering sweetness. Not quite an iron fist / velvet glove combo, but maybe a ... brass knuckles / soft winter glove? Okay, nothing too exciting but not gross.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black as tar with a generous coffee coloured head. Aromas of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, vanilla, leather and licorice dominate. It actually smells like it’s been aged in bourbon barrels too, with tannic oak notes and the bourbon sweetness. The taste has a lot of licorice, treacle, dark chocolate and leather. Only a bit of espresso. Charred meat in the finish. I still can’t shake the impression that this is barrel aged although I know it’s not. Full bodied and, as the label promises, velvety smooth with a little bit of prickly carbonation as well. Fantastic imperial stout, provided it isn’t consumed too cold.

Bottle at Lake Youl with JK, James, Poet. Looks black enough, with a thick and foamy light brown head. The aroma has chocolate, roasted malt. The body is nice and full with an oily texture. The flavour has roasted malt and cocoa bitterness. Without being one of the best, it’s good.
