Buonissima Imperial Stout. Aspetto come solito. All’aroma e al gusto si percepiscono soprattutto tre sapori: caffè, cacao amaro (ma non troppo) e di qualche spezia "rinfrescante" (come liquirizia o eucalipto). Se lasciata riscaldare si avvertono anche leggerissime note liquorose. Corpo decisamente strutturato, buona "scivolosità" sulla lingua. Birra soddisfacente, ma -devo dire- che è proprio ad un punto dall’esplodere.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Opaque brown/black color, heavy rocky brown head, thick curtain of lace. Almost too viscous. Taste is toasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee that moves with incredible smoothness through the palate to a mildly bittered finish, which is quite enough to balance. A brew with big flavor that has the ability to deliver the goods without becoming overpowering. Highly recommended.

Nothing special about this one. Malt, vanilla, light body, moderate carbonation. Would not buy again

Aroma- Has a strong malt aroma with a chocolate backdrop.
Appearance- A black colored beer with a tan head
Taste- Has a strong malt flavor that I found mildly satisfying.
Palate- This is a full bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- Not a favorite of mine, but not a horrible beer

Very dark opaque pour with a small brown head. A bit thick in body and lightly carbonated. Flavor is coffee, caramel and a bit of prune. A nice hop bite finishes this one nicely. Oh so dark and oh so good.

Typical black stout pour with half a finger of khaki head. Dark fruit and carmel on the nose. Prunes, raisins on the front of the tongue followed by slight carmel and finishing with a dry expresso.

Dark and delicious. Good aroma. Oaky with a good aftertaste. 8% but doesn't taste like a higher percentage beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at home. Pours black with rich brown head. Strong, sweet aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Flavor opens smooth and nutty, developing into mild hoppiness balanced with rich malt. Coffee and fruit notes in finish, resolving into sharp, but not quite overpowering, bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. Overall, tasty and smooth, fitting for style, not crazy about the finish.
