3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Craft Brixton. Opaque black almost no head. This looks oily and has a fairly high viscosity. Nose is very alcoholic, lots of dark ripe fruit, plums and prunes and its very sweet and sugary. Taste is very sweet. Getting lots of prune, ripe dark fruit, lots of sugar. I’m finding it a bit too cloying. Oily and syrupy in the mouth.

Coco aroma. Very thick and chewy palate. Hoppy when cold in the initial sips. Middle has cereal flavors. Crazy thick is.what I’ll remember.

65cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pitch black with a majestuous light brown creamy crown on top. Exellent appearence. The aroma is roasted malts, caramel, hints of licorice and grape. Nice contrast regarding taste: coffee, chocolate, and some hops show up. The oat touch is subtle, but helps on giving a peculiar character. Slightly sweeter palate than expected, even though one still gets bitterness (coffee-like). Creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Very good brew.

Draft. Jet black with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, largely oat and chocolate. Taste follows suit but is amplified. Sweet but not too sweet. Almost reminiscent of a hearty alcoholic chocolate milk. Rich silky palate. Not sure why it took me so long to try this one. It's great.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottiglia 65cl, ordinata da domus birrae e bevuta a casa.
Nera con schiuma piuttosto persistente.
Profumo di tostatura e di caffè.
In bocca grande corpo, vellutata, alcol mitigato dal sapore di caffè, cioccolata e da un buon amaro nel finale.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber poured into imperial stout goblet. Pours a thick black with a dark tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and caramel. Hints of the oats come through, and there is slight note of alcohol, which at 11% it's hard to think it won't be there. The taste is incredible. A lot of caramel and roasted malt with a light feeling of alcohol in it. The mouth feel lingers perfectly for an imperial stout. Overall, a solid, solid beer

Aroma is sweet malt, slight booze, oatmeal and vanilla. Appearance is thick black, medium-brown head. Taste is also sweet, almost as it smells. Sweet malt, vanilla, milk chocolate, slight booze mostly hidden by flavor. Mouthfeel is perfect, soft carbonation and velvety smooth. Overall, solid, as the blackwater series have all been thus far.
