On tap at Chmielarnia in Warsaw. Beige strong head. Chocolate, cacao, milk coffee also some alcohol in nose. Very sweet, creamy, oily, medium bitterness recognizable only in higher temp. Too sweet one and a little bit exaggerated for me.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 250ml bottle on 24/5/2014 (batch number 857/858). Pours close to black with a tiny deep tan head. The aroma is fruity and boozy with subtle chocolate notes. Flavour wise this is a powerhouse - sweet dark fruit (prunes, dates cherries), milk and dark chocolate, roasty espresso, nuts, vanilla, a touch of soy and some warming alcohol. Damn this is complex in the mouth - very sweet and dessert like, but with lots of good counterbalancing dry, roasty hop bitterness. Chocolate is the dominating feature but there’s a whole lot more going on as well. Has a thick, rich, velvety palate and modest carbonation. You know you’re not drinking a light beer but it drinks surprising easily for 16%. This is a fantastic sweet impy.

Black with no head. Aroma is dark, dried fruit, dark malt and booze. Taste is coffee, dark dried fruit, a little chocolate and again, booze. The taste is quite intense and explodes on your tongue, but the ABV is a bit too obvious for my tastes. Still, an excellent stout.
