Backlog. Bottle @ Green Lion Inn 2011, aged for about 12 months in average conditions. Their dark beers always excite me, and this is truly fabulous.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Tosa Wine and Spirits. Pours an opaque black with a tan head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has heavy roast, chocolate and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, lactose, heavy espresso and bakers chocolate. Bitter and strong, with a bit of a chocolate chip cookies factor. Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Quite strong and rough. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet, with some alcohol presence. And rough. Very tasty and very full bodied - and very extreme espresso.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Una tenebra cremosa e impenetrabile avvolge il bicchiere. Il gusto è intenso di caffé mocha, penetrante e profumato, e poi di malti tostati intrecciati a una delicata dolcezza complessiva che rende estremamente piacevole la bevuta. Grado alcolico inafferrabile.

From memory. Had this before my RB days. Apparently thy don’t make it anymore. Similar profile to the other black water series. This one had a lot of coffe and was probably the best I the bunch. Unfortunately this and the mocha which are the two best were the ones discontinued.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very good imperial stout but it is way too sweet for my liking. Very sugary and heavily coffee flavored. Smells sweet and like coffee
