25-30 cl Draft. Amazing Aroma and flavour. A beer that gets you into trouble because you can just keep drinking it and at 12.5% that’s probably not a good idea.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Boutip. Pours dark brown with a thin tan ring. Smells of ash, roasted malt, spice, pepper, layered malt. Tastes of chocolate, rich, sweet malt, residual sugar. Good, but the imperial stout is much more balanced.

Botella, thanks a bunch for sharing this treat Pinball. Pitch black colour with a nice dark brown creamish head leaving a good lacing. Lovely roasty maltiness with chocolate and alcohol in the aroma along with dark fruits and coffee. Great mouthfeel. Lovely roasty malty, dark fruity, vinious flavour with dark bitter chocolate, coffee, liquorice and bitter hops. Long lasting roasty malty chocolate dark fruity dry finish. Great brew indeed!

black, small brown thick smooth head.
aroma is roasted stuff, brown sugar, spicy hops, wooden notes, licorice, faint chocolate. very well balanced. very good aroma.
flavor is sweet, licorice, blend of brown sugar, alc, faint chocolate, faint coffee, faint hops, malt sweetness. Niiiiice.
i think it sort of tastes like a blend of 1/3rds real fucking grean barley wine with lots of hops, and 2/3rds of real fucking great imp stout.. enjoy. nice!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep pitch-black color stout with a huge medium brown foamy head with great retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet barley malt with light bitter roasted ending with some light green hops also noticeable. Taste is also a nice mix between some sugary malt with some roasted malt bitterness and some well balanced green hops with nice floral notes. Somewhat hard to describe but very interesting and well balanced overall. Body is full with great carbonation and no appearance of alcohol was noted.

Bottle. I thought this one was a definitel step up from the oak-aged imerial stout I tried a few days before. Pours black with a huge brown head. Nose of roasted malt, coffee and liquorice. Flavour of malt, coffee, liquorice and oak. A bit too much alcohol coming through on this one.
