4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pitch black beer, the head is very big and brown. The aroma is great, intensive, lots of coffee, salt liquirice, pine, sourness, some chocolate, berries and roastiness. Taste has coffee, salt liquirice, some sourness, after the beginning a quite strong sweetness, some berries, no alcohol. Full bodied that is lightening by strong carbonation. Surprisingly, light despite of strenght. The great beer, unique sourness and also otherwise not typical, quite sweet.

Strong imperial stout with alchool hidden and a medium body. Very complex aroma and bittersweet taste, it just needs more foam persistent, but it’s a bomb!
