aroma: dark chocolate, coffee, burned roasts, plums. Taste is moderatly sweet with a bitter ending. Chocolate, dark fruits, citrus, caramel, smoke, coffee roast. Pretty intense, gives you a glowing alcohol warm feeling. Christmassy beer, bit weird drinking this during a summer heathwave.

A great imperial stout. Pours an incredibly deep black with a thick brown head. Smells of vanilla and toffee. Taste changes drastically from start to finish. Starts very smooth, with some vanilla. Finishes smoky, with a slight tartness to it. Very good. Had in the bottle.

It poured black, dark and rich. There was an aroma of roasted sweet liquorice, with hints of yeast, not much sweetness. The flavour started with some sweet vanilla, paused briefly and carried into a long after-taste of bitter coffee. Wonderful combination of flavours and transition.
