4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is definitely one of the more wild and interesting stouts I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy, thanks to fellow RateBeerian BrewGoblin. Pours black with a frothy brown head. Aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, chiles, and earth. Has the aromas you’d expect in a stout, only with some surprises along the way. This has a lighter body than i’d expect for such a strong stout and had a rather soft carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. There’s a delicious sweet malty vanilla flavor. Definitely some boozy flavor present, but just enough to be warming. Has a nice fruity espresso aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 Pitch black body with a thick, tan head. Very malty aroma with a hints of roasted taste. Surpirisingly neutral taste with very little of roasted malts typical to stouts in the background. For an almost 9%ABV stout it’s incredibly mild, I almost feel like your regular lager packs more punch than this. Mouthfeel is slick and smooth as you’d expect. Overall it’s not horrible but in its class it’s a bit disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Some salmiac on the nose, faint licorice, dark malts and distant chocolate notes. Licorice on the flavor, quite dominant actually, subtle orange notes too, a tad of caramel with cocoa on the finish. Decent sweet Foreign Stout.

Rated based on notes taken on 15 Apr 2012 -- This is a very nice Imperial Stout. Mouthfeel is light so it is dangerously easy to drink. Flavorful as well.

330ml bottle as from an off license in London. Pours back with nice tan head. Aroma is toffee. Taste is bitter liquorice, coffee, a little tobacco.. would’ve preferred a bit more sweetness really.
