3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Birra scura, bella impenetrabile, densa con una schiuma fine e persistente, color cappuccino. L’aroma non è imperdibile, con sentori di lievito, coca cola e caramello. Ma alla bocca, dopo l’iniziale amaro si dimostra quasi dolce, e poi nuovamente amarissima come una vera srout. Grandissima birra, dal sapore di prugna, uva sultanina e caramello.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared from MikeE. Pours dark, muddy, brown, with a thin tan head. The aroma is chocolate, lightly burnt toast, and toffee. Sweet and malty, with a smooth, pleasant bitterness to balance it out. Medium to heavy body, chalky, smooth, and a clean finish. Overall, this is a pretty nice stout. Nothing special going on, but a good, balanced flavor.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 A classic, one of those impies that revived the style in the previous century. Brownish beige, creamy, stable head and black colour with ruby hue, only under bright light. Dense and complex aroma of coffee, dry sherry, pear syrup, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, chocolate sauce and cocoa powder. Refined, rich taste with lots of chocolate and candied fruits, sweet but subtly evolving into a mouth-filling, creamy but not too sharp roasted bitterness (black coffee), nutty, caramelly and a bit woody, with a meaty finish with delicate aromatic hops. Not as ’agressive’, spicy or bold as many of the imperial stouts that followed in the Anglo-Saxon world, but well-rounded, very rewarding and very well-balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Dark chocolate, classy alcohol and roasted malts takes only small part in overall smell. Taste: Again chocolate, little sourness and very, very long great aftertaste. Average carbonation. More body will be better, but that beer is really good. Amazing finish. Price [Warsaw, Poland] 15,5PLN = 3,7 Euro
