500ml bottle, thanks to Gunnar! Pours black with big tan head. Aroma is big and roasty. Taste is of course flavoursome, although perhaps not as thick as expected. Not a million miles away from their porter and exceptionally drinkable for the strength. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts all represented and beautifully balanced.

Dégustée chez Pierre Clermont. Bière noire à la surface huileuse et sans mousse réelle. Au nez je reçois beaucoup de mélasse, de fumée et de réglisse noire. Corps d’une superbe rondeur sans sucre résiduel agaçant. Amertume, réglisse, densité sirupeuse et longue en bouche. Aucun arrière-goût.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,5 l bottle. Pitch dark pour with good amounts of light brown foam. Intensive aroma of chocolate, caramel and some coffee. Taste is very smooth. It leaves a nice, balanced chocolatey feeling with some bitterness kicking in at the end. Also a little dry finish. You can sense the alcohol, but it doesn?t affect the overall experience at all. A very nice imperial stout.

On tap at Avenue Pub in NOLA. Jet black with minimal head. Served cold. Aroma - tons of chocolate, coffee underscores, sugary sweet, some dark ripe fruit. Starts moderately sweet and transitions to a dry finish. Dark ripe fruit is present throughout. Body is medium thin with soft carb. A little boozy warmth accompanies. Nice imp stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost black, opaque, weak head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee & malts, smoke, some earth. Full body. Creamy palate. The flavour is more on the sweet side & rich of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, port wine. Also some grassy hops present. Tasty. Objectively very good. Still it excites me just partly.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,5L From Vinmonopolet, Norway - Pours a thick inky black. Aromas of liquorice, dark roasted coffee, leather, dark fruits and chocolate. 70% chocolate. Mouthfeel is velvety with low amounts of carbonation. Flavor is quite sweet with prominent flavors of roasted coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Has a well balanced finish that is not too dry neither too sweet. A staple imperial stout in my book. Give it a try!
