4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid jet black pour. Amazing dark tan head. When cold the tartness comes out from the Belgian yeast. As the beer warms the complexity of character really comes out. The sweetness mellows and thealt really comes through. The mix of the yeast and malt delivers delicious notes of dark toffee, chocolate and anise in a mesium to thick mouthfeel. Finish is crisp and dried figs, prunes, raisins linger on the palate.

2014-11-06. Black body with a quick tan head. 3+ Aroma is lightly alcoholic dark malt, light roast. 3+ Flavour is similar, modest alcohol, dark malt, cocoa, light roast. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Medium bodied palate, soft to light carbonation. 3+ A bit simple, it shows promise but the alcohol is overly prominent. Bottle shared by Blankboy.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice aroma of roasted coffee and earthiness upon uncorking. Surprisingly well balanced for an Imperial Stout. Roasted coffee and hints of chocolate on palate. Smooth, crisp finish. Not at all hot comsidering the high ABV

A huge Belgian-style imperial stout. A funky nose leads to a Super duper sweet roast base. Almost too rich for my palate. Medium mouthfeel. Almost have up on this at the beginning, but in the end it rang true.

A huge roasty beer. Pours black with a dark tan head. Light carbonation. Loads of brown sugar, baker’s chocolate and malt. Finishes smoother than an imperial stout should be. A little bit of fruit too to the finish. Astounding.

Bottle. Pours an inky black with a big tan head that fades quickly. Big malty aroma, lots of wood, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar. Rich taste, of bitter coffee and chocolate, toasted malt, wood, dark fruits. Hides the alcohol well. Lingering coffee and malt. Very nice.
