4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An absolute beast of a beer! Perfect imperial stout thickness, with dark chocolate heavy on the palate initially, and the raspberry kicking in quickly, dominating the taste with deep and dark sourness. If you’re after a challenging strong beer, this is the beer for you. It may not be the smoothest beer at 10%, but this is part of its charm. The use of fruit with Imperial Stout here is a match made in beer Heaven, the only question is when can I get hold of another bottle of this?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of raspberries, liquorice, dark chocolate and black coffee. Malty, fruity, slightly tart taste with liquorice, raspberries, dark chocolate, black rye bread, black coffee and a finish with a balanced roasty bitterness and a slight raspberry sourness. Full body, smooth and rounded mouthfeel. A slight sweetness lurking in the sourness. Very interesting and well made beer, with a generous raspberry character. Great balance, with alcohol well hidden. Very nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear dark muddy brown, dark beige head. Rotten raspberries and tinned tomato paste. The taste is very low on sweetness, again, the rotten raspberries, and a weird roasty character, which i can only describe as „a coffee brewed out of roasted beans”. Might be a bad bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50cl, a dark beer with medium copper head. Nose is on redberries. Aroma is on roasted malt, ashes, redberries, dark chocolate, the beer is becoming creamy when heated, grassy hops.
Not a good balanced on my point of view, bit harsh on roasted / burnt notes on one side and acif fruit on the other side, alcohol is a bit heavy too.
