Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This inky black beer has ruby red highlights and pours with a thin tan head. It has rich dark chocolate, liquorice and oak flavours, chilli notes (without the heat), tart red fruit and Arabica coffee on the finish. Excellent!

Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma: licquor, sugar, raisins, coffee. Taste: very thick (which I love about imperial stouts), sweet, heavy, you can feel the alcohol warming your throat, followed by a coffee aftertaste. It is a bit too sweet to my taste but I still think this is one of the best imperial stouts I had so far.

Perfetta imperial stout! Colore nero con schiuma marrone. Al naso note di soia, caffè, cioccolato e torrefatto. In bocca corpo pieno con bilanciatura dolce-amara che nasconde il grado alcolico. Sapori liquorosi di cioccolato e caffè che ricordano il liquore "Borghetti". Finale persistente e caldo. Questa è una grande imperial stout d’autore!!!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an oily jet black with a high, creamy, tan head -- the head almost gushed over the top of a Duvel tulip. Lots of sticky lace is left behind as it recedes, unwillingly. Nose is coffee, roasted walnuts, brown sugar, browned pastry, and baking chocolate. Not as sweet as I expected on the tongue; there’s chocolate and coffee, yes, but also a strong, earthy element, running into the mushroom, pine, and savory spectrum. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich, and the finish is long, smoky, and bitter. Very well done.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Niesamowity RIS. Czarny, ze srednia brazowa pianka ale utrzymujaca sie do konca degustacji. Piwo jest ciezkie i mocne, palone i bardzo kawowe. Rozgrzewajace ale akohol ukryty. Wytrawne i gozkie na koncu. Na poczatku slodowe i jakby szarlotka w tle i powidla. Niesamowite w smaku bardzo dlugo utrzymujacy sie gozkawy i kawowy posmak w ustach.

Black pour with a thickish brown head.Roasty, burnt brown sugar, coffee, cocoa. Sweet up front, then a beefy, roasty kick, cocoa, raisin, coffee. Finishes dry, slight coffee bitterness. Awesome.

"Had this right after a Kopi Luwak stout, and the comparison ended up being "cheaper coffee (in this one) but better beer." Huge nose and flavor of raisinettes and coffee. Did I mention the coffee. Dark roast. Nicely, if a touch overly, done. This is defiinitely a big aggressive beer. Not a lot of subtlety, but done well. A must for coffee &/or stout lovers."
