4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have to admit I have resisted trying this beer for almost a year in protest that Southern Tier is no longer exporting to our shores, but stocks are almost exhausted so have to pony up and try it. Lovely beer, that is rich and full bodied and the plums fill in the gaps. Damn you Southern Tier for reminding me how good your beers can be, and the fact you no longer sell to NZ. A Creme Brulee sob story.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 Hick tur vi var ett gäng som bjöds på denna imperial Stout. Mycket choklad doft.. Smakar rent å choklad . Bra Stout utan kvalmighet som ibland infinnes i dessa mättade öl.När tempen steg framträder faktiskt plimmondoft å smak konstigt? Eller?? riktigt bra kan drickas även av mindre nogräknade öl gubbar som PQ. Ja såna som dricker allt inte finsmakare som Patrik..

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich dark brown coloured body with a decent sized two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of prunes, raisins, roasted malt, coffee, alcohol and a nice bit of figs - very nice and pungent throughout. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavour at first with a good prune, plum and raisin flavour coupled with a light coffee and chocolate note. Aftertaste shows some good depth with the sweetness then the cherry flavours very noticeable along with a lot of roasty bitterness. Overall, a nice beer and pretty much what I was expecting - and better than what most others thought of it. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 12-July-2013 for US$9.50 sampled at home in Washington on 05-April-2014.
