2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
perfume and caramel aroma this dark brown brew has some slight alcohol burn with a tangy finish. don’t like the dense body that seems flavorless with the hint of hops that could just as well be my imagination. foamy brown head and flavor turns to bourbon.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from jsprime. black, with a tan head. nice nose typical of the style, chocolate coffee and dark fruit. the flavour is solid as well, great malt progression, and this is very well hopped. everything isin balance and its quite easy to sip away at this stout. not a world beater but would make a great "every day" imperial stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tomlinson’s, Inverness 
Black, medium tan head than dissipates, some lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, some dark fruits, quite boozy nose
Taste of smooth rich dark malts, liquorice, some dark bitterish cocoa, dab of dark fruit
Palate - Soft carb, full body. Palate is fairly sweet rich dark malts with alcohol. Finish is mainly of warming alcohol with dark liquorice malts, a long lingering bit metallic alcohol burn in the tail
Overall - This didn’t hide its abv - tbh it seemed the abv was even higher...good flavour in there but rather too boozy

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a dark, dark brown body, looking clear, and topped by a dense, small, light beige head. Sweetish, bready, caramel maltyness in the aroma, with licorice hints. Some molasses and alcohol. It’s full-bodied and warming, with soft carbonation. Lasting flavor with roasted notes, molasses, bread hints and caramel. Some roasted bitterness. Hints of coffee. After a good while, the hoppy bitterness chimes in, lasting for a long time. A complex and tasteful beer well worth a revisit. 130216
