4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Totally black with a decent brown head. Aroma is powerful cognac, fruity (plummy, raisins) chocolate, vanilla. Flavour is very sweet with bountiful cognac, slightly woody, chocolate, honey. Sweet to the point of being a little cloying, can detect only a hint of roast malt in this. Pretty boozy. Body is medium, quite high carbonation. Very nice.

Jumping the shark’s absolute dominance shows where rate beer can often fail. This is by far one of the best on earth. 96 is far too low. To Ol Goliat having a rating of 99. I know what I prefer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 375ml bottle on 10/5/2014. Pours not far off black with a small dark tan head. Has a very pleasant aroma of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, cognac, dough and a dash of coffee. The Flavours are huge with sweet milk chocolate and caramel most prominent. This is joined by quite a bit of soy, some vanilla, wood, prunes, cognac and a touch of honey. There’s some roasty bitterness at the back but the sweetness prevails here - it’s a real dessert job. Whilst there’s certainly some cognac and booze present, it’s actually super easy drinking for something that’s over 15%. The palate approaches sticky and the carbonation is quite lively for an impy. Damn this is one impressive and enjoyable brew - definitely the best Moon Dog I’ve had to date. And it’s an ode to the Fonz, who appears on the label. I give it the big thumbs up and an ’ayyyy’.

Pours silky smooth and looks amazing. Thick head that dissipates into a black coffee looking head. Super rich stout with a woody caramel thing going on I'm guessing is the cognac/ truffle.

Pretty good for an imperial stout. It definitely packs a punch and has quite a smooth coffee flavour. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a sinister looking dark tan head which quickly disappears to a swirl. Nose is sweet vanilla and cookie dough. Fairly sweet but don’t get any truffle. Taste is very boozy with plenty of dry roast and bitter chocolate. A little one dimensional. The booze is taking over. Just ok

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Armoa, clean and dark with notes of roastynss and honey. Pours black-brown with beautiful dark head. Taste, grapes, sultannas, chocolate, molasses, some licorice, touch of coffee. Palate, smooth with mild structure around the roof. Seriously underrated beer IMO.
