3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 330 ml into a snifter, ABV 8.8%
Totally black in colour, with one finger of brown head on top, with good density. Good retention too, leaves foam islands on the surface and light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, vanilla, sweet cocoa.
Taste begins sweet with somewhat milky chocolate, light alcohol notes, finishes with roasted malts and a light bitterness, while on the aftertaste chocolate comes forward again.
Medium thick body, good carbonation, maybe a notch too high, but in no case annoying.
Overall a more than good imperial stout

Pitch black color, almost green brown head color. Sweet cocoa nibs, roasted malts. Sweet, malt, but feel the mouth isnít so balanced and lacks interest.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Deanís stickiest floor tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a thin beige head on top. Aroma has light molasses and caramel. Flavor and mouthfeel are very thin for an Imperial stout. Could be far heavier. Medium sweet with a sharp, hoppy bite in the middle. Decent brew, but could use more intense flavors I guess.
