3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (355ml). Aged roughly 9 months piror to tasting. Poured inky black with a medium sized dense, frothy (almost creamy) tanned head which lasted very well. A complex and rich aroma with strong notes of burnt sugar and sticky toffee, toasted malts, milk chocolate, caramelized dates, fruitcake dunked in brandy, smoke and honey roasted nuts. Flavor was a fantastic lactic/sour bitterness with notes of new leather, roasted malts, toast, bitter chocolate, black coffee, smoke, toasted nuts and a dry earthy finish. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation, an oily texture, very dry mouthfeel and a superb finish.

Aroma and matching flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco, dark fruit, and some slight coffee-esque notes. Tobacco notes turn me off here. Good body. Alcohol is noticeable which is a downer.

Strong coffee aroma with a hint of yeast, smooth with malt and chocolate flavours. Not the strongest or thickest imperial stout but still a great beer!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Exquisita imperial stout, con poquita espuma. El aroma es embriagador, enloquece y te hace desear la cerveza. El sabor es impresionante, con toques de caramelo, cafe y afrutado, con un minimo toque chispeante en la parte de arriba del paladar. Siempre que el dinero me lo permita (es bastante cara) me tomare todas las que pueda.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of sweet holiday bread comes through a thick tan head that sits on top of a pour that is as black as Walter Cronkite’s glasses. Taste is also very sweet. Chocolate, plum and alcohol tickle the taste-buds too. The palate is a little disappointing for an Imperial stout. Not as full bodied as I was expecting. Overall not a bad beer but it has too many imperfection to be world class.

God duft av kaffe og lakris. Dyp sort farge. Tykt dekkende skum. Fin fyldig smak av kaffe og lakris men en langt sittende ettersmak av lakris.

Bottiglia 355ml, ordinata su birraland e bevuta a casa.
Nera con schiuma poco persistente.
Molto amara, poco tostata.
Un pò anomala a dire il vero, gradevole.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is a beer dark brown beer, with a beige brown average head. In the nose there is light coffee, red fruits, strawberries and some bananas. It is a medium bodied beer, with a low carbonation. In the taste there is coffee, caramel malts, hop, yellow fruits and bananas. The aftertaste is bitter, hoppy and caramel malts. I very nice stout, but would'not call it an imperial stout.
