Dark brown with a red tint and a beige, lasting, creamy, head. Smells of roasted malt, raisin, chocolate and caramel. Full thin frothy body with soft carbonaton. Tastes of roasted malt, alcohol, raisin, with a slightly boozy finish. Decent impy stout but needs more flavour overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with super large dirty brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with light sweet notes and a Belgian yeast finish. Taste is dominated by medium dry roasted malt notes with light sweet notes and with some black chocolate notes with a fruity Belgian yeast finish. Body is bit light for style with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not enough complexity for the style.
