3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glass at La Fine Mousse restaurant, Paris, France. Pitch black colour, with off white head which clings nicely to the glass leaving beautiful lacing. Aromas of chocolate, dark fruits with a hint of coffee. Definitely on the dry side, as the palate confirms. Coffee dominates the taste reminiscent of the astringent touch. Dangerously drinkable. An original take on imperial stouts, which I really like!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer, under a dense, medium, darker cream-coloured head. Roasted/burnt nose; with coffee, coffee drabs, parsley. Roasted/burnt coffee, and maltsweetness. Warming up, more depth, even when the sweetness increases - creating Belgian chocolates hints. Well-bodied, light alcoholwarming, slick. Decent, if once more, quite conventional Imperial stout.
