3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - RBAG, from my RBAG Commemorative Glass. Pours clear black, with a 1-finger dark tan head, and spotty lacing. Nose is Saison yeast, big smoke and roast, lightly soapy. Flavours of smoke, soap, this beer is intensely soapy, bacon, ham, balack biscuit. Decently tight finish. Just a bizarre beer. I really don’t like the Saison/Impy Stout hybrid thing this has going, though it makes me want to try the original Black Metal.

Thx. to Dylan / Kraddel for sharing this one - reasonable amount of a 750 ml drank whilst ’At the Hearth of Winter’ by Immortal was playing which was for me always the only way I ever should drink this one - I am still convinced the guy on the label is Abboth - Farmhouse tag is not really all that visible on the label - it is like they are hiding it - looks beautiful - dark brown with a big lovely mocha head - smell is top as well with mocha, sweet coffee, chocolate, mellower sweeter dark malts and some ground coffee as well - lovely - taste carries some light weird off touches which sort of lessens the impact - it is the farmhouse yeast, not entirely working I presume - bitter roast, roasted grounds, lightly off-roast, even touch floral, light creamy coffee, lightly musty, cocoa, reasonable sweetness blended in - it is good but feels lightly off, which are the farmhouse ester I assume. still quite interesting - body-wise definetly and taste-wise I would say as well this is a fine stout but doesn’t feel like the usual impy one but first right in with the regular stout category where it shines a bit brighter

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Mr. Hopper for the 750mL bottle! Poured deep brown with a tall, dark brown head. The aroma picked up lightly-smoked black malts and rye biscuity notes with earth and fruity yeastage around (maple too, if you dig deep).. I like the original a bit more. The flavor found smoked black malts and licorice at the core, with fruity and earthy yeast plus oxidation (or something similar) throughout.. finished dry and very roasty, with too much of a yeast impression and some syrupy alcohol warmth. Heavier-bodied with a lot of carbonation on the palate.. not the best flow.. I didn’t quite get it.

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Motor oil black with a 1" tan head. This beer is not as thick and oily as most stouts, more carbonation than I’m used to in this style. Nose is FANTASTIC! chocolate, malts, roasty. This is the smoothest, most drinkable stout I’ve had! I loved it!
