3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you! Pours cloudy very dark brown with ruby shades and airy but rocky and stable off-white head. Dark, fruity aroma with notes of malt, caramel, and chocolate. Sweetish, fruity and slightly vinous flavour, with notes of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Roasty and slightly vinous finish. Good, although it tastes more like a Barley Wine than a Foreign Stout.

Pours a rich dark black. It has a sweet raisin and sugar aroma. It has an interesting combination of milk, raisins, and sugar. finishes a bit dry, and a touch bitter. It has a watery complexion. Overall it was ok, but I am not a big fan of raisins.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown appearance...thin looking in the pour. Very light carbonation. Toasted barley aroma, beef stew, carrots, onions, potatoes. Taste is caramel, and more of the beef/barley flavors from the aroma. Label says imperial stout, and while I can feel the alcohol in the "imperial", its too thin to be called a stout in my book. Maybe something was lost in translation.
