4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mild coffee and roasted malt aroma and sweet smell as it warms. Looks great, dark black with a coffee colored head. Taste is roasty and coffee and cocoa, with a long cocoa aftertaste. Minimal bitterness in the finish. Fairly thick mouthfeel and fine carbonation. Alcohol comes through fairly strong as it warms, but it’s not unpleasant. Very well balanced stout, I like this one even though it’s not overly complex.

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.

Dark black ruby with light brown lacing lasting foam head. Nice strong bitter coffee aroma, therefor bit disappointing taste, little weak. Nice coffee aftertaste. Good beer. (Velp 201412)

Deep dark brown colour, huge creamy brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of vanilla, mild roasted coffee, chocolate, herbal liqueur notes and hints of alcohol; taste is the same - excellent stout; it is life saving after a lot of industrial lagers I have tasted in the last couple of days

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice smooth body, although its kind of light for a stout. Rich espresso/mocha flavors are really highlighted by a bottle-conditioned twang. Is there some vanilla in there? Remarkably drinkable for a stout with such a high alcohol content at 8.0%. Everytime I drink it, I’m impressed all over again. I’m going to say it: this is the best stout I’ve ever had.

Beautiful thick dark and syrupy, with a lively fizz for a stout.
It’s full and long on the tongue. With a medium sweetness and medium bitter taste.
Very tasty and would definitely buy again!

Bottle, picked up in an Indian food shop in Geneva. Pretty black, big beige head. Massive up front roastiness, with a delicious heavy sweet powerful roasty character. Fades to a more traditional coffee bitter drier finish. Full of flavour and very drinkable. Good label too.
