3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Randall’s. Pours an opaque dark brown with a big, rocky, khaki head that laces the glass. Aroma of earthy hops, chocolate, graham crackers, grass, peat, and rye. Flavor of dark chocolate, grass, earth, brownies, and light smoke. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mellow, smooth, sweet, roasty, and eventually bitter mouthfeel. Good imperial stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a store in Copenhagen. It poured a pitch black liquid with a small brown head. Smell and taste of chocolate, milk chocolate to be exact and coffee. Fairly high residual sweetness. A very nice Imp stout, easy to drink despite the strong flavour.

500ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Opaque black, decent tan frothy lasting head. Resin deep roast aroma, quite bitter, a bit boozy. Taste follows, smoky, hint of soya sauce. I like it, not sure what it is. Bitter and malty.
