3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; 33cl; courtesy of the Essex legend - madmitch76!
Poured into my Budvar tankard. Aggressive pour. Head is gorgeous to start off with but immediately diminishes. Aroma is very woody and chocolaty as well as peaty and boozy. The flavour is chocolate; chocolate raisins; smoke; peat; oak; espresso; cream and leather. Some nice treacle and motor oil.
A very nice imperial stout but a little rough on the mouth-feel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaske, 33 cl. Sort, tæt og uigennemtrængelig, med et lige så tæt, beige, cremet skum. Chokolade, svesker, mild salt-lakrids, ristede malt-noter, rosiner i rom. Ekstrem fyldig, nærmest cremet i munden. Ristet malt med nogle nærmest sukrede undertoner og balancerende ristet bitterhed og en lille syrlig prikken. Top lækker impy, der har haft godt af et par år i kælderen.
