4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle bought from Kris Wines a couple of years ago. Pours jet black with a tiny brown head that quickly disappears. Aroma is big coffee, cocoa, soy sauce, twiglets and malts. Lovely smooth texture. Well covered alcohol. Slightly sweet but also bitter coffee and cocoa. Very solid. So easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black color with tan head. Aroma is rather weak, some weird off fruitiness I don?t like, liquorice. Taste is intense, molasses, liquorice, coffee, fruits, quite boozy, some esters. Perfect fine-bubbled carbonation and some alcohol burn in the end. A non-typical Imperial Stout. Not sure if it?s one for me, too much liquorice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thick and deep black with a small mocha head. Lots of bitterness up front. Like unsweetened chocolate. The aftertaste has a slight sweet tinge to it. The alcohol is hidden well. OK but not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with some reflexes, ok head. Aroma: great dominating chocolate aroma, also a touch of caramel, coffee and some earthy hopps in the background. Maybe a little bit of esters as well, but not disturbing at all (I kept the beer for 1,5 years in the cellar) Taste: chocolate, coffee, followed by nice hoppy finish. A great solid Imperial Stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,355 l bottle bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. Pours out black and oily. Small beige fast fading head. Full complex nose with everything. Coffie, malt, hop, boozy. Taste has a lot of hop, grainy and roasted malty background, a lot of coffie and dark chocolate, some hay, but again, over all hop. Present alcoholic sharpness, and coffie bitterness, heavy stuff.
