4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a deep, dark brown. Nearly opaque, with a creamy tan head. Aroma was a strong roasted malt. Delicious. Flavor was similar, very roasted malt. Other imperial stouts have a strong alcohol flavor but this was perfect, only a slight, warming alcohol flavor. There were some chocolate notes as well, which played well against the biterness. I’ve had much more bitter stouts. This was actually fairly sweet in comparison. Palate was thick but not syrupy. Overall a well-balanced imperial stout.

Black with light tan froth. Aroma has chocolate, coffee and wood. Roasted malt flavour with lots of dark chocolate and coffee. Everything held together nicely by a strong, lasting, very hoppy and rough bitternes. Good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oha, ein Mega Stout! Süß, kräftig, malzig UND hopfig, eine Seltenheit!
Sehr dunkel, kaum Schaum. Im Geruch ein wenig Asche, extrem viel Holz. Dann der erste Schluck: überwältigend! So viel Aroma dass man kaum etwas identifizieren kann. Schöne Menge an Kohlensäure im Bier macht es gut trinkbar. Zwischen 12-18 Grad ein Traum.
Im Abgang dann herrlich herb/süß und viel Frucht und Öl. Hält ewig lange. Einfach ein Traum.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep dark brown almost black with just a thin tan ring. Thin to medium slightly oily body that clings to the glass. Pleasant aroma of roasted nutty malt with a hint of dark fruit or dark chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts with some bitterness. A little dry with a slightly harsh finish. The flavor fills the cheeks and tongue and lingers awhile. Not as smooth or thick as I had hoped for. Not bad but I’ve had better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is licorice, deep roasted malt, a touch light. Appearance is dark brown, with a light brown head, poured thin. Taste is deep and rich roasted malt, licorice, coffee, but a touch thin. Mouthfeel is thin, good carbonation and lots of flavor hanging around. Overall, it has a pretty intense flavor but misses on thickness.
