3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black with a huge, creamy, frothy espresso coloured head. Retention is pretty good.
Aroma is not that powerful, dark chocolate, vinous notes, roasted malt.
Taste has dark chocolate, cocoa powder, quite a lot of roasted malt, licorice, slight vinous notes.
Medium verging on full body, soft carbonation, round, smooth mouth feel.
Long lingering dark chocolate aftertaste.
Solid, no fuzz, Imperial Stout. Could benefit from a slightly bigger body but for the price, who am I to complain?
