3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle BB Jan 2017. Thick black pour into a snifter, small brown head. Aroma - sharp alcohol, some chocolatey coffee, orange and piney hops. Body is medium, a bit foamy in the mouth, touch of carbonation. Taste - initially very hoppy lime and mixed citrus, mint, coffee. Finishes ashy, burnt toast, slightly dry and astringent. I’ve had numerous IPAs that are less hoppy than this. There’s a lot to like about this one (particularly the finish) but I think it would have been better without bucket-loads of American hops.

Totally balck beer, with a tall dark brown hed, thick, with good retention, leaving medium kacing around the glass.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black pour with thin tan head and some lacing. Aroma is lots of coffee, roasty, hops, slight dark fruit. Coffee flavors, roast, then hoppy bitterness. Lingering boozy bitter coffee finish. Delicious stout with none of the soy/raisiny flavors characteristic of similar imperial stouts.

Pours an opaque inky black with a small tan head and long watery legs. Smells of strong coffee and hop. Tastes of coffee, slightly acidic but balanced by bitter hop. Very delicious stout that has a lot of coffee and hop flavour.
