4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fresh can dated 10/18/12 served in a snifter. Pours a motor oil black with a finger of dark tan head and very nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, whiskey, dark fruit, leather, and pepper. Taste is chocolate, both milk and semi-sweet. There is coffee, roasted malts and barley, dark cherries, smoke, and cream. Mouthfeel is pretty chewy and also velvety. Alcohol is surprisingly well hidden considering it is there in the nose. Superb stout.

Can from BrewDog Camden. Number 1700! Pours pitch black with a two finger, thick and dense creamy tan head. Lacing left is exquisite. Nose shows heavy roast and molasses with light cocoa and vanilla. Taste is very milk chocolatey with heavy cream and vanilla without being too sweet. Light roast and liquorice come through as it warms. Wow. ABV doesnít come through at all. Creamy mouth feel with balanced sweetness and light bitterness on the finish. Fantastic beer with an unbelievable mouth feel

Black with whitish head. Aroma is sweet malts and soy sauce. Taste comes together best as it warms - sweetness and roast combine to bring an oily quality. Overall, a good approachable imp stout, though not super big and thick.

Can, thanks Mike. Black with tidy tan head. Nice roasty aroma woth licorice, coffee, vanilla, ovaltine and chocolate. Similar taste, nicely balanced flavours. Thick and creamy texture with a bitter finish. This beer doesnt slap you in the face. Itís perfectly balanced in every way and the palate is spot on. A faultless beer which I guess is itís strong point. Enjoying it more and more as I drink it.Score started at 4.0, finished glass at 4.6

Kick ass imperial stout. The can is so unassuming, but the second you pour it into a glass... Chocolate, coffee, booze... all the flavors you want in an imperial stout. Excellent.

Draught. This is a great beast of a beer. Thick and roasty with a big hop flavor to counter balance. Great impy. Worth the $ for a special celebration.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- thick pour with a healthy deep tan head one finger thick. Decent lacing. S- toasted malts, molasses, dry earth, chalk, tangy cacao, toffee, licorice, marshmallows, Nutella, leather, grainy dog food, raisins and pungent prunes. M- healthy heavy body and palate, with a good carbonation as well. Syrupy and sticky. T- taste is very pleasant, starting with raw cacao, chocolate, earthiness, toffee and roasted malts. Strong symphony of licorice, marshmallows, more chocolate, vanilla, and rich dark fruits. Ending is a casual decline of chocolate, toffee, and burnt sugar. Relatively standard aromas and tastes, but a very well handled beer.
