4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of chocolate, malts, dark fruit, combined with a wonderful hint of funk. An opaque dark brown pour with a rocky, mostly lasting, tan head and tons of lacing. The taste reveals chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malts, hints of roasted coffee, along with some grain in the finish. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth medium-full mouthfeel and subdued carbonation. Overall, a winner! An excellent Imperial Stout. Will drink again.

23rd April 2016
Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Odd dark malts, rich and with a trace of cream but also carrying a distinctly tea like tang. Light floralness and a touch of dark fruits. Finishes dry and spicy. Mmm. Okay.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
3/29/16. Bomber bought 11/2014. Min head and carbonation. Light lacing. Very subtle nose. Aging has played down the fruit and amped the dark roasty notes. Not as nice a mouthfeel as I would have expected for 10%. A bit one dimensional
