3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber courtesy of ACD, cheers man! Aroma is distinct breadiness and smoke, aroma is similarly smoky, hammy, really interesting, finishes moderately dry. Can’t decide what I think about this one, there some elements in the flavor profile that I can’t put my finger on, but are intriguing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle to taster. Not sure how this is a RIS at 7%, but phuck it. Looks solid; a translucent dark cola with ample fizzy beige head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and toast. Tastes like it smells both some odd bitterness alongside a bit of anise. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied. Underwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle courtesy of and shared with 77ships.
Brune foncée, col fin beige.
Arôme est malté, léger caramel, grillé et un peu brûlé. Fin caramel. Retrouve un bouquet assez anglais dont le côté houblonné est modéré.
Palais est malté, grillé, plaisant mais j’ai du mal à croire que l’on est ici devant un stout impérial. Amertume perce en fin de bouche avec un profil noble.
