4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vintage 2008. 250mL bottle, pours a motor oil black with a tiny head. Nose brings out lots of soy sauce, oxidation, dark fruits and liqueur. Flavour is actually pretty good for being so old, with soy sauce, some dark cocoa, dark fruits and a touch of roast. Very well-balanced and complex. Surprisingly nice for such age and oxidation.

26th October 2009
Opaque black stout. Low carbonation. Sweetish stout part of the sweetness is lacto. Rich rich malt but not hard roasted at all. Some licorice and subtle Port Wine notes as well. Shows it’s strength just a little at the finish. A pretty decent stong stout this and in a sensibly sized 25cl bottle.

(Draught) Pours black. The aroma is heavily roasted and medium to heavily hoppy with tones of oily espresso, dark chocolate, dark berries and fruits alongside grapefruity, “green”, vegetal and resinous hops. The flavour is heavily roasted and medium hoppy with notes of coffee/espresso, green/resinous hops and dark sugar. Light sweet and fruity finish. The mouthfeel is fat, round, oily and light sticky. Aftertaste of hops and coffee. Full bodied.

Tap @ Fairbar. Pours black with no head. Aroma of hard roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dried dark fruit, light notes of smoke. Taste is very smooth with roasted malt, coffee, plums, raisins, chocolate, port. Full smoth body, low carbonation ( was aged 2 - 3 years at this point ) no signs of booze. Exellent stout, full flavored, smooth and easy drinking. Shame this was the ever last keg of it. 141010

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sehr schwerer Antrunk, in das Malz selbstverständliche das deutlichste Aroma ist. Der Alkohol ist nicht störend, wir aber erkennbar. Das Malz wird noch intensiver und wird tief-intensiv, bitterschokoladig, holz-hopfig. Sehr schokoladig und stimmig, wobei das gehäufte Malz auf Dauer auch als monoton ausgelegt werden kann. 7/12/9/12/8/12

In short: A sweet syrupy black sipper with plenty of black liquorice. Good.
How: Bottle 250ml. Consumed when about 2 year of age. More than 7 years before expiration date!!!
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose of straightforward dark malts with fruity undertones. In mouth the beer feels rather sweet, plenty of black Twizzlers™ (black liquorice candy), figs, some graham cookies, some green resinous hops. Alcohol was a bit apparent. Hops initially balance out the sweet malts but the bitterness is short lived and each sip leaves a long sweet syrupy after-taste. I thought it was very weird that the Raasted Oak Aged Imperial Stout felt more roasted, more hoppy, dryer and less boozy than their Double Imperial Stout. Isn’t it usually exactly the other way around? Anyway, this is a good beer but I much preferred the Oak Aged Imperial Stout. Funny thing about this bottle is the expiration date of 2018!!!. And my bottle was already a few years old. How do they know this beer will still be good in 2018? A psychic once predicted that no one will ever be able to make an accurate prediction about the future.
