3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid Imperial Stout with a purely dark viscous pour and a dark tan head filled with big and tighter bubbles. The nose is well roasted with notes of espresso and chocolate as well as vanilla and woody notes. A bit watery in the mouth with a lack of full bodied ness. Sweet and robust with espresso notes. Pretty good brew overall, but a bit thin and lacking.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours very dark opaque brown with tan head. Nose of coffee, chocolate, and unfortunately a lot of cherry cough syrup. Cherry cough syrup dominates the flavour with licorice in the background. Not sure if I got a bad bottle or it just isn’t to my taste, but yeah didn’t care for this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Rich dark opaque with light brown head. Nice retention, nice lacing. Aroma is sweet coffee, chocolate, figs. Mouthfeel is really nice with the moderate carbonation. Burnt malts interlace a slight astrigency with the hops to counterbalance the malty sweetness. CO2 provides a nice sharpness up front and finishes slightly dry. Overall a pretty nice Imperial Stout...especially for the price point.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours very dark, tan head. Smells really rich, VERY chocolate. Tastes very chocolate! Roasty, hoppy bitterness in the middle, chocolate finish. Bitter dark chocolate taste is played against the hop bitterness making it balance the sweet dark malts. Really interesting, really good!!

16th March 2013
Opaque black - brown beer, big pale tan head. Light dry palate. Dry and mellow dark malt.Touches of cream, toffee and roast. Just a very light trace of red wine. Bubblegum ester streak seems out of place. Finishes dry. A but dry and could have done with a stronger barrel presence.
