3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2010 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a massive brown head over a near black hued completely opaque body. Aromas show a lot of roast, chocolate, malty notes, coffee, molasses, light smoke and marshmallow. Very enticing aromas. Flavors are nutty and a bit smokey. Roasty with a bit more of an ashy presence than I like. Good malt character, low esters and low alcohol. Medium bodied, with slightly fuller carbonation.

Opaque black beer. Small tan head. Minerally dark malt nose. Fairly light palate, a little dry. Smooth dark malt that is not roasty or bitter. A licorice streak with subtle esters of banana and spicy bubblegum. Finishes with the malt getting sweeter but with a trace of coffee and more minerals.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a beige head. Coffee and chocolate nose. Espresso, moderate sweet and chocolate flavour. I was a bit suprised. All the other ones where sour/wild ale. So I thought this was it too. Not! But unusual easy drinkable for an Imperial Stout.
