3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black, quick tan head. Salty licorice, ashy malty, slight milky, nose. Intensive, and clean. Swirrling reveals herby green citric, almost peppery, hops. Full bodied. Soft smooth texture, no signs of the high abv, just fluffy creamy roast malty goodness. Finding some dry chocolate now, soft ash, roast malts. Doesn’t come by as very aggressive though, rather mellow, soft, easy. Freeze-dried coffee in the finish. A smooth, dangerously easy impy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle [9.8% abv]. Jet black colour with average, late awakening, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, ochre-ish chocolate head. Roasty dark malty, coffee aroma, notes of mocha, mocha ice cream, dark chocolate. Taste is chocolately dark malty, more than subtle sweetness, notes of cocoa, mocha, dark chocolate, caramelized coffee beans; perfectly hidden alcohol. Not light bodied in strictest sense, but flattering, dangerously easy drinkable. Focused, simple, clear and clean.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33cl. Near black with a beige head. Aromas are coffee and creamy oak barrel with vanilla. Medium to low body with little to no carbonation. Flavours are coffee and dark chocolate with funky berry notes. Caramel with lactose and vanilla milkshake. Aftertaste is milk chocolat and sweet, does not stay long. Not enough body for an imperial stout imo.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A black beer with an almost medium, dense and light brown head. Aroma is rich, coffee and roastiness, sweetness of chocolate, some vanilla. Taste has coffee, quite strong sweetness, some roastiness, hint of vanilla. Overally, the taste is quite simple but otherwise, balanced and enjoyable. Almost full bodied, smooht, pleasant in the mouth. Quite sweet. Very good beer but for my preferences the final touch is missing.
