Love it. Rich and thick and bitter and coffee. A little sweet in the first finish, then dry husked malt. So intense. Quite one-dimensional, but when that dimension is this good, I don’t care.

Not as intense as BA bro, thou very expressive as well. Moderate to heavy roasted maltiness, huge choco presence mixed with quite rough coffee, pleasant caramel, decent hops, vanilla, licorice.
Actually this is quite interesting. BA has some positive effects, thou it takes away quite a lot as well.. Sweet with quite intense roasted bitterness. Nice brew. .Would like to sample side by side with BA bro

Bomber. Pours inky black with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of umami and green hops. The taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, green coffee, mild hints of vanilla and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight alcohol warmth. Straightforward, solid imperial stout.

Unimpressed compared to the ratings. Not a very strong aroma and compared to many imperial stouts.
