3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
8th April 2014
Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Opaque dark brown beer, good mid tan head. Nose of honey and spicy ester. Dry palate and surprisingly light. Modest fine carbonation. Sweet dark malt with honey dripping off it! Light spice and bitter wood. Touch of something floral. Dry finish. Honey linger. Nice enough flavour but there was a dry earthiness about the mouthfeelnof this beer that was somewhat offputting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to MadMitch. Pours black-brown with a fine, creamy brown head. The nose has some rich dark malts, touches of soap, burnt wood. Big sweet flavor with prominent torched wood, burnt flowers, dark toast, bitter earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with lots of bitter, burnt wood, torched earth and grass, baking cocoa. Quite heavy handed. Fairly drinkable but a bit punchy.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Thanks Papsø: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Some brown bubbles and a small brown lacing, both disappear quick and leave a headles pitch black beer. No wonder with a pitchblack pour!
Aromas of roast, chocolate, liquorice, soya, yeast, tint of grapes and berries (tart ish tone), mocha, light coffee, light liquorice, light brown sugar sweets and light manure.
Flavours of roast, soya, chocolate, mocha, bitters, spices, brown sugars, light sticky, some sweets, light coffee tone, some very dark liquid liquorice tones, also a bit salty and dried leaves with a tar edge.
Aftertaste is a sticky mix of sweets like liquorice and brown sugars, some soya and roast, some coffee/espresso with milk and sugars, roast and bitter. Nice.
Low carbo, silky mouthfeel, full bodied and a oily sticky texture. Nice beer! Bit sweet but well balanced with a nice soya/soy sauce tone.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep black with small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice and chocolate; taste, salty licorice, sweet honey, muscovado sugar, vanilla leading to moderate bitterness. Very high ABV but I think the depth of flavor hides it well. Very nice imperial stout, very nice indeed!

Intressant öl. Inte mycket kolsyra tyvärr. Trevlig honungssötma och värme från alkohol.
