On Tap at Hair of the Dog, during their Star Wars event so this was the Empire beer very fitting rep for the Imperials.
Pours black like tar with light and dark two toned head, taste of licorice and soy with some dark chocolate and vanilla, a master piece and will rule the galaxy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caffè latte, vanilla and chocolate aroma. Pours pitch black, oily with brown head, not very stable. Taste is bittersweet, nicely balanced between milk chocolate, vanilla shake at the beginning and roasty bitter finish. Body is full. Very good sipper.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Couleur d’un noir profond avec une mousse brune foncee assez resistante pour une a ce niveau d’alcool. Je ne sais pas cb de temps a cette bouteillr mais pour etre un fan de stout je suis assez decu de ses saveurs. L’alcool ressort enormement avec des saveur mi chocolater et mi grain griller-cendre de cigarette. Il va falloir que je la ressai surement qu’elle avait plusieurs annees...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours an impenetrable jet black color with an almost non-existent light brown head whose traces disappear quickly leaving the tiniest of lacings. Aroma is gorgeous, heavily malty and bold. Notes of plums, prunes, oak, roasted grains, whole-grain dark bread, caramel, molasses and brown sugar. Moderate alcoholic notes that add heaviness and some rhubarb to mix up and add complexity. Some earthy touches. Almost /Dubbel Quad like hybrid. The lack of head dampens a little bit the enticing nose. Amazing taste, very intense, sweet with some umami touches. Strong sugary roastiness provides caramel and molasses flavors with some traces of dark fruits. Some additional flavors include dark olives and soy sauce in fair amounts. Mild woody notes and some booze round up nicely this Imperial Stout. It’s like a roasty Quadrupel. Big body with a fine dense oily texture. Low carbonation, quite a lot of alcohol character. Definitely a massive brew to sip slowly. Seems like the Barrel Aged version mellows the sweetness a little bit and incorporates some extra hints of complexity. This regular version is still wonderful.
