I appreciate this experiment, but this is just too much. The alcohol burns in your mouth and stomach and makes it hard to detect the other tastes.

(draught, rating #3500) pours deep black in colour with a frothy deep brown head. aroma of roasted malts, hazelnuts, cherries and espresso, a touch alcoholic, with a light hint of sugar icing. flavour is heavily alcoholic and slightly perfumed, with a medium sweetness and additional notes of roasted malts, earth, hazelnuts, yeast and plum cake. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Zythos Beer Festival. Deep black with a medium fully lasting beige head and little lacing. Aroma is stunning! So rich and complex with tons of chocolate, caramel, smoke, roasted malt, bourbon, red fruits, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is sweet, but not nearly as much as some of the big RIS from USA. Again, this is so rich and there’s a ton of chocolate, caramel, well-integrated bourbon, smoke, fruity notes, vanilla and a heart warming finish. Full (!) body. Moderate/medium carbonation (very impressive for a 26% abv beer). Super thick mouthfeel. Wow! One of the best - if not the best - Imperial Stout I had yet, Amazingly rich and complex. The alcohol is never burning, just pleasantly warming. It’s not even nearly as boozy as Black Tuesday and some other high abv beer. It’s even "drinkable" considering the high abv. Great balance. I’m blown away by this one.
