4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from 500ml bottle at Metro in Lahti Finland.
It was good but not great. A bit more bitter after taste than I would like in an Imperial Stout. It finishes like an IPA. which is great but not in this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery! Black with a white head. Lots of chocolate, some cherry and some vanilla in the nose, mild bitterness, mildly roasty and fully malty taste. A little alcoholic finish, no carbonation, full body.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark, creamy head. Hard roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, rye, dry, pecans. String bitterness, very full flavoured. Loads of roast over a body that is lighter than often in such heavy tasting imperial stouts, but certainly not watery. I like how it’s rich and still quite drinkable, also because of the high carbonation. Excellent brew, great quality. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a tasting, thanks, quite stable creamy bubbly brown head, opaque black color, aroma of dark bread, prunes, some smoke and light herbal notes in back, flavor of shrubs, dark chocolate and dark fruits, with some roasted coffee. Fair and drinkable but not really exciting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark oily colour, aroma of dark chocolate, with little sugar and some liqueur notes. Taste of coffee, a bit too watery like De Molens Mout&mocca. Maybe also despite the relatively low ABV, which is too low for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Near black in colour with a thin but lasting tan head, excellent lacing. Aroma is quite roasty, lots of coffee, dark fruits, some molasses. Flavour is roasty, creamy, some milk chocolate, coffee, light alcohol. Roasty mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, moderately bitter, roasty. Nice stuff. Well balanced and highly drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
£4 bottle from Valhalla's Goat, Glasgow.
Lovely aroma with slight peat. This beer can be divided into two. At first there's a fantastic deep delicate sweetness which - and this stops it getting a higher rating - crashes to a unpleasant lingering bitterness. The first part is so good though, it outweighs the second.
