3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 A black color and a little white head. Aroma has roasty and chocolaty elements with light smokiness and licorice. Taste is sweet, malty and roasty. Licorice and chocolate are the prominent flavours, also some light fruity notes. The finish comes a bit too soon; stronger hoppiness would have added depth and balance to the taste. Full body, flat. This Imperial Stout had a nice malty character but lacked a little hoppiness, in my opinion.

Bottle, 2012 vintage. Pours an inky black beer with a small quickly disappearing tanned head. Aroma is very sweet, loads of port and Madeira, loads of roast and even some light pepper. Flavour is sweet and toasty, has some burnt characters, slightly vinous. Very soft carbonation and silky mouthfeel. Quite full bodied and very nice.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rough light brown foam. Lovely aromas of lightly roasted malt with some hints of coffee. The taste is lovely mellow with a little coffee, a good portion of roasted malt, a little fruit and dark bitter chocolate. It’s all nice rounded of with little hops. It’s a really delicious Imperial stout, requires great attention.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black color with beige foam. Sweet notes in the nose. Chocolate and sweet (cristal sugar sweetness) with very little coffee in the taste. Even some slight cassis fruit notes in there. Satisfying calm taste with a lot of diabetes potential in the aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black color with tan head. A bit yeasty, chocolaty (sweeter chocolate), vanilla, quite weird sweetness there. Not a classical ImpStout. More of a Porter?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at SinH4?s Goodbye Event. Roasty aroma, but not that well defined and not so sweet. Taste is very sweet though, almost like a glacing. Not much else though.
