4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark color with a moderate chocolaty head, light lacing, slightly thin. Rich aroma of roasted malts with tones of chocolate and hints of liquorice, fig and coffee. Flavor is sweet with lots of chocolate malts and figginess. Coffee tones, especially in the finish. A noticeable but not abrasive alcohol presence. Doesnt have a ton of complexity, beyond fig I cant find any dark fruit, but its not overpoweringly large like a lot of Imperial Stouts. Quite good though it doesnt have the extreme nature of a lot of the highest rated stouts, I would guess this would be rated a full half a point higher if there was a label of a microbrewery on the bottle.

Bottle camping in France. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, soy sauce, molasses and some bready yeast. Flavor is very bitter, dry, burnt malts and quite black. Not a hint of sweetness in this one. Decent body and a smooth texture.

Bottle @ home. Opaque black color, average to medium sized brown head that lasts for quite a while and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, lightly roast, some chocolate. Taste malts, again a touch of roast and quite some chocolate, subtly bitter. Oily texture, medium body, medium carbonation. Nice one!

Pitch black beer with a yellowish head.
Smell is sweet dark fruits mixed with lots of liquorice, chocolate and coffee. Yoghurt, roasted nuts, almost leaning towards a black ipa. Taste is bitter sour, oily and fizzy, creamy, and very sweet. Bitter hoppiness. Raisins, alcoholic twang.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice, dark chocolate, dark fruity notes, coffee, creamy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate roasty bitter finish. Smooth and creamy, fairly enjoyable, but I’ve had far better Imperial Stouts.
