3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle big thanks to Josh. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is pretty sweet, juicy, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut and some tang. The taste is roasted malt, earth, toast, cocoa, vanilla, good bitterness, mild acidity and a bit of spice. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Rather nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark and thick, faint aroma of dark chocolate. Strong chocolate and coffee flavours, a drink to be sipped slowly. Love it

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours black with smallest bit of ruby red around the edges and a attractive tan head. Aroma is big on a type of powdered chocolate, some vanilla and a sugary sweetness slight Belgian yeast aroma too. Taste is malty chocolate up front with some brown sugar and sultanas and other dark fruits that linger. Very solid imperial stout.

Been aging for close to a year. Top class Imperial Stout this one. Pours jet black, with a chocolate head without a massive nose but hints of chocolate, coffee and some vanilla on the side. Taste includes lots of dark chocolate. Good!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Nera ed impenetrabile con un velo di solida schiuma marroncina. Tostata, caffettosa, cioccolatosa, al naso e al palato, con note di liquirizia, biscotto e luppolo, un buon equilibrio dolce-amaro con quel tocco belga che si riconosce al volo. Corpo medio, struttura oleosa, gusto pieno; meritevole!
