4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Bottle. Pours dark black. Little carbonation but poured from a slight height produces a lovely tan head and lovely lacing.
Aroma is coffee, milky chocolate, toffee, dark fruit, plum, liquorice, dark caramel, hint of ash, with some pine hops in the background. Flavour is medium bitter, quite sweet, oily, with a surprisingly lovely smooth finish despite its ABV, with the booze coming through at the end.
Impressive, but not quite the best Imperial Stout Iíve had to date.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, plums in chocolate, some very pleasant alcohol notes.
Black with red reflections, tan head was not very high, but long-lasting.
Heavy sweetness countered by medium bitterness.
Pretty thick and oily, while low-carbonated, which made it very drinkable
One of the best beers Iíve drunk
