4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black as sin with nice well formed frothy mocha head. Very roasty and sweet aroma, with charcoal, cocoa, dark chocolate, treacle, dark fruits and a little alcohol. Strangely, but not at all horribly, most of the flavour seems to be in the lengthy finish and aftertaste. Dominated by dark chocolate, with hints of vanilla and licorice. Alcohol is almost imperceptible. Velvety smooth is an understatement. This is an outstanding understated and elegant imperial stout.

0,5l bottle as a gift. Pours pitch-black with barely any head. Roasty nose, liquorice. The liquorice is also very dominant in the taste. Dark chocolate, bitter. Not my beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home (batch nr 1244, brewed 13.08.14, bb 13.08.18). Pours black with a very small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, some hops, almost a bit cheesy. Taste is sweet with roasted bitterness, creamy, coffee, dark chocolate, bit of soy, licorice, long roasted bitter aftertaste. Very nice, but a bit weak in the aroma, maybe at bit too young still..
