2014-12-19. Very dark brown body with a tiny brown head fades. 3+ Aroma is moderately alcoholic, sweet dark malt, hints at molasses. 7+ Flavour is similar, with a sweet malty core, dryish roast in the finish grows into the aftertaste. Light molasses touches. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, very soft carbonation. Pretty solid. Enjoyable. Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow.

Fashawn (583) - ITALY - DEC 21, 2014
Bella imperial stout. Nero impenetrabile, schiuma beigenon troppo abbondante ma persistente,anche se saponosa. Aroma di caffè torrefatto note tostate EF affumicate,un po’ di cacao e sul finale prugne e castagne. Imbocco liquoroso tanto caffè che si alterna con il cacao. Il caffè è predominante ma anche l’orzo tostato emerge. Finale amaro e lungo,emergono a tratti vaniglia e castagne. Bella birra,corpo poderoso e tessitura oleosa.
