3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
#3000 for me. Bottle I split with Kara and her friends. (They were not used to good beer) Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of coffee malts and roasted sweet malt with good amount of chocolate as well. Sweet with a long dry bitterness for the taste. Full body with softer carbonation and creamy on the palate. Slight alcohol burn. Fuller flavors as it warms. Overall a fine imperial stout.

Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is chocolate cake, chocolate muffins... maybe some chocolate / cherry liqueur. Taste is the same with some tart dark chocolate / cherry / espresso on the finish. Creamy, chocolately, malty. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Au nez, fusion intéressante entre le cacao et le café. Présence indéniable du rôti, vanille et beurre de noisettes. Au goût, chocolat et noisettes, café terreux et pointe d’alcool. Sensation globale qui manque ici de cohésion. En bouche, corps moyen-mince. Texture un peu étrange. Bulles qui moussent. En finale, des notes cendrées soutenues par la chaleur d’un alcool blanc.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As soon as the cap was ripped off the bottle I was assaulted by an aroma of marmite. This is a polarising character and usually a sign of being left on its lees for a bit long, bit is there any other style that could potentially get away with it any better?The flavour is a much easier ride with cocoa, engine oil, licorice. As it happens, it’s remarkably easy to drink, masking its alcohol well. I have a lovely feeling of warmth in my cheeks and a surprising tolerance for the rest of the world. I like that. There’s also a faintly soapy finish as well, which is oddly intriguing.
