alexsdad06 (7103) - Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2015
22 oz bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark fruits, cocoa, splashes of coffee with a nice balance between the sweet malts and light sherry character and bitterness from the dark chocolate and roasted malts. This was a decent option back in the day, but I have not revisited it for some time.

Deep murky black, medium mocha head. Rich roasty aroma - cocoa, mocha coffee, leather. The taste has dark chocolate, treacle, vanilla, raisins, coffee, charred meat. Nice thick body makes this a good winter sipper. Simple but really enjoyable imperial stout.

Tognetta (388) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 15, 2015
Completamente negra, espuma marrom, densa, irregular, duradoura. Assim como a Chelsea Porter, licorosa, adocicada, chocolate amargo, porém mais intensa, mesmo antes da experimentação, bastante alcoólica . Paladar com dulçor intenso, licorosa por seu teor alcoólico, amargor crescente, até nivel médio no aftertaste (sensação que se intensifica conforme a temperatura aumenta), menos café que a Chelsea. Apesar da intensidade, bem balanceada, corpo médio, carbonação flat, não cansa o paladar.
