4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 330ml bottle on 27/7/2016. Pours the deepest brown with almost no head. The aroma is primarily chocolate and caramel, with some light roasted malt. Flavour wise, it’s big and bold, with lots of dark chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, some dark fruit and spices, finished off by some big hops. the palate is creamy and the carbonation soft. A really well balanced, cohesive and very tasty impy.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pitch black, oily pour, very fine tan head. Really modest yet wonderfully melded aroma, like rum and raisin chocolate, gentle booze, leather, rich and dark. Similar flavour, has a woody earthy malt beneath rich bitter chocolate, plenty of sweetness. Full-bodied, oily mouth-coating texture, long drawn out chocolate bitterness. Really lovely stuff.
