3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jet black body, clear with ruby edges. Hard to make any foam, the effort gives beige shortlived.
Aroma; black roasted malts, strong prunes, dark fruity chocolate, dough notes.
Taste; black roasted malts, sour barley, liquorice, salty liquorice candies - leading to a finish of cocoa, coffee, dusty hops, black syrup or as black prune marmalade. Impy body, soft carbonation, somewhat dry but fruity too.
Ridiculously big bottle for an imp-stout. Should’ve been 25-33cl.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours satanic black with almost no head (ment to?) Aroma of licorice, oak and coffee. Taste is coffee, oak, molasses, licorice and some chocolate. Heavy but stil very smooth, some months cellaring and this will be a dream. Still think its very little carbonation in it thou, maybe it will come by time and was fresh in the shop
Aroma is chocolate, oak, licorice. Medium bodied, bitter roast finish. Taste is coffee, oak, burnt sugar, hints of licorice and chocolate. A touch harsh.
