3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid beer but i have had other imperials that i have enjoyed more than this. Appearance is very appetizing and the heavy slick full body is satisfying. Asia is fairly average fire me, nothing special. The flavor is solid with some sweet roasted malts with a mildly bitter after taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle, 2014 release. Gift from my girlfriend, thank you so much! :-)
Pitch black body, with a small, creamy, coffee brown head.
Aroma of anis, coffee, dark chocolate, dark berries, dried fruits, booze.
Tastes of anis, dry coffee, cocoa powder, melting dark chocolate, dark fruits, some booze.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, roasty-bitter, with strong anis again, dry coffee, bitter cocoa, wood.
Very good, although I was expecting a bit more. The harsh anis notes are too dominant for my liking, but thatís just a matter of taste. Otherwise very satisfying, with the typical, intense coffee and dark chocolate notes. Overall a big beer with a lot of character, but not among my favourite Imperial Stouts.

660 ml bottle
Dark brown opaque beer with little brown head. Aroma has licorice, dark chocolate, liqueur and roasted malts. Flavor has licorice, coffee and roasted malts. Palate is full and soft. Finish has mild bitterness with alcohol. Aftertaste is roasted with dark chocolate. Too much booze, too straight-forward.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle@Maja/Talo, Tampere, Finland. 2014 patch. Strong aroma with licorice, raisin and sweet roasted malts. A hint of alcohol. Pitch black color with minimal beige head. Strong taste with bit roasted raisin, dark chocolate and licorice in perfect balance. Smoothly roasted bit sweet malts. Some alcohol nicely tickles gums. Ultra-wide taste spectrum. Long aftertaste with licorice and malts. Strong/medium body with medium/low carbonation. Overall a perfection with classy twist. Only lacks some body and bit stronger head.

One of my all-time favorite imp stouts, really hits the spot each and every time, how about doing a honey coffee bba aged version?

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Black pour, medium brown head with nice lacing. Upfront aroma of some spice and some dark fruit. Taste was rather sweet with just a hint of cocoa. It needs some bitterness. I thought this was a nice medium bodied beer, very creamy but a little bubbly.
I sampled this with a friend who had an American Imperial Stout from the Great Divide.
That being said, this was a terrific brew that I really enjoyed, but I think the American Double/Imperial takes the prize.

2015 bottle served fresh
Smells mostly of dark cocoa and esspresso, some roasted maltiness, vanilla, dark fruits, and a certain grape like characteristic. Itís fresh so itís still got that bite to it, but thereís a sweetness that comes through and in addition to the coffee and chocolate thereís some currant or raisins present and a certain wine or grape juice like flavor that I canít quite put my finger on
Overall itís a great representation of the style, definitely one of the best out there and only gets better with age. Have a handful of bottles cellared
