3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
W aromacie nic nie zwiastuje risa, mało tego, nic nie zwiastuje ciemnego piwa! wyczuwalne bardzo przyjemne brzoskwinie tudzież morele, nawet po ogrzaniu brak czekolady i kawy! Trochę mało. W smaku już wyczuwalna paloność, kwasek od słodów, finisz lekko przyprawowy z muśnięciem kawy, bardzo delikatny. Brakuje gęstości, brakuje czekolady, alkohol silnie wyczuwalny... Słabo! Choć piwo raczej smaczne.

On tap at Brewdog Cardiff, 1/3 pint. Black with a brown head. Aromas of espresso, dark chocolate, liquorice, raisins, slightly tart red berries. Taste is medium-strong bitter and light-medium sweet, spicy warm alcohol. Heavy body, slick warm mouthfeel. Delicious, strength apparent though, less balanced than the best impy stouts I?ve had. Still great.

"the vanilla and coffee are most apparent on the nose. chocolate as well, and a little alcohol. smooth brew, as was a couple of the barreled versions. honey a little more evident in the flavor which is quite sweet, but because of the roasted malt and char character isn’t too sweet. nice beer, but a bit steep to revisit much if at all."

Keg from Brewdog Glasgow. Whoo! Incredibly strong. Black. Intense. Smells like sherry. Bought it not realising it was 13%! Surprise! Although I struggled to drink a third of a pint, it's an interesting and complex beer, if not one to try again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black, small to medium sized brown head. First aroma directly from the bottle was alcohol and hops. Later, from a glass, there was big coffee aroma. Taste is coffee, some brown sugar, berries and hints of alcohol. Sweet coffee finish. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, creamy and oily texture. It gets more boozy at the end. Good Imperial stout, but I had better for cheaper price.

Pours as black as night, with a brown head. Chocolate and dark roasted malt dominate the aroma. Tastes just as it smells with dark chocolate and malts with a hint of coffee. There seems to be some dark fruit here too like a touch of port wine. Its well balanced. You can feel the alcohol. Still a very delicious, full-bodied imperial stout. Recommended.
