3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Dense black body with a khaki foam that recedes quickly to a collar. Smells like chocolate covered raspberries... Or blackberries, I guess. Lots of berry juicy, chocolate, roast, & burnt caramel. Flavor has a sharp berry skin note to it up front, as it lingers into a softer sweetness from the chocolate malt. Notes of molasses, burnt brown sugar, soy. Finishes like chocolate covered raspberry candy with a touch of roasted malt to offset & balance. Pretty warming & heavy. Good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle, served in Tulip. What an amazing brew, only the aroma seems "average" for a beer of this class. Blackberries are so well integrated, just a slight fruity touch enough to make it special. Wood, coffee, hops, long and pleasant dry aftertaste...and the rest is magic till the end.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick dark black with a small beige head that is gone quickly. Aroma and flavor bring such pleasant, sweet, and delicious fruity berry notes so perfectly blended with the imperial stout roasted malts. The berry is dominant, but exactly as it should be. This is as delicious and perfectly blended for a fruit stout as it gets!
