3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Black with a thick mocha head and a lot of lacing. Roasted barley aroma with sweet cocoa. The taste follows adding some black licorice. Smooth feel, light for the style. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 550mL bottle. Near black with tan head. Aroma of licorice, dark dried fruit, and mild chocolate. Taste of very mild licorice, chocolate, subtle roast malt finish. Good, but there’s better imperial stouts.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,355 l bottle. Pitch black with a big, foamy, stable, tan to light-brown head. Wonderful aroma of roasted malts, nuts, dark chocolate, plums and raisins. Taste starts with coffee and dark chocolate and ends with plums and raisins and hints of candy sugar. Light bitter and vinous finish. Slightly alcoholic. Full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Really pleasant beer. Couldn’t ask for much more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black with average, beige, dense head. Aroma is complex - roasted malts, plums, deep, some booze. Taste is complex - there are for sure some dark fruits along with chocolate and roasty malt character. Full bodied and oily texture. Too lively for stout. Finish is chocolate/coffee and litte sour.

Aroma is rich roasty maltz with slight smokiness. Black licorice, biscuit and oats prominent here. Taste is rich malts, caramel, toffee and slight earthiness on the tip. The famous mineral water adds excellent mouth feel and finish. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Full, rich and creamy stout with a nice mixture of caramel, toffee and faint roasted coffee beans. Wee tad of fruitiness does not improve score. No noticeable alcohol. Great brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle; pours nearly black with a mocha head; aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hints of dark fruits; taste is chocolate, roasted coffee and malt; light bitter finish; I was expecting a little bit more of an American style imperial stout but by no means was I let down with this beer. It is a very good beer.
