3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown with off-white head that leaves a thin film and medium lacing. Stone fruits, berries, coffee, roasted malts, lots of spices and big citrusy hops, light vanilla too. Taste is slightly sweet at first, then goes into roasted bitter and finishes with a big hop bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly thin feeling and average carbonation. Complex stuff, it’s a lot of different things, but works quite nicely together.

Bottle at home, 8th November 13. Pours a thin, watery off black. Iodine on the nose some liquorice. Taste is not complex, too thin mouth feel, no sign of the whiskey. Not a very good imperial stout

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a dark reddish brown with a huge off white head (bit of a gusher to put it mildly). Aroma of the smokey malt with dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Full body, flavour as the aroma with a lingering dry aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown body, beige head. Aroma of red fruit, juniper berry, roasted malts, chocolate, fruit and wood. Bitter flavour, roasted malts and wood. Quite dry. Finish wood and berries.
Nice, though for me personally not the best one by Ramses. And where did the whisky go?
