Black body with a dark tan head. Noticeable liquorice though not overdone, coffee and chocolate in both aroma and taste. Full in body , alcohol warmth, a little syrupy but a delight to drink.

Seriously pitch black with a thick, dark brown head. Aromas of tar, burnt caramel, prunes/dates/raisins, as well as a fair wiff of alcohol. Incredibly thick, luxurious mouthfeel. Flavours of freshly roasted coffee, tar, bitter chocolate and rich fruits. Finishes with intense roast bitterness which dries out any malt sweetness. Length is incredibly. A truly magical beer.

Nose is unbeliably good - soy sauce, vanilla, chocolate and rum. Doesn’t quite pull that off in the mouth. A tad thin but quite smooth. Chocolate and soy in the mouth. Very good but I’ll stick with the black hole which is unbelievable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Jet black hue with a really rich dark tan head. Coffee and lactose sweetness in the aroma at first, some light booze, and bittersweet chocolate, light roast. Dark roasted malts shine in the flavor, chocolate, hint of licorice in the finish as well as some smoke. Thicker body that poured like oil. Really damn good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out pitch black. A nice medium sized dark brown head that holds pretty good, and sticks to the glass. Roasted smell of coffee, caramel and chocolate. Pretty decent smell, real imperial stout-smell. Some sourness from fruits comes lightly trough. Bitter taste of roastiness, chocolate and coffee, also at the tasting the somehow weird sourness comes up. Bitter hops. Decent brew, not the best, but very tastefull.

imperial stout piuttosto estrema.. nera e densa tipo petrolio con una schiuma marrone veramente scura! al naso e al palato è molto aggressiva, estremamente torrefatta e cioccolatosa, veramente molto densa, luppolatura piuttosto forte che da un finale amaro deciso.. nonostante gli 11% viene coperto abbastanza bene l’alcool.. pure essendo così estrema risulta nel complesso gradevole..
