2012, 750ml bottle, BBE September 18, at home, split with The Beast, 13th January 18. Fiercely black in colour, unusually some carbonation, and a little gush on the open. Aroma is liquorice, cocoa, coffee, some sourness and barrel. Taste is super smooth, coffee, slight sourness, like green coffee beans, barrel, liquorice, dark chocolate. Could not get any rum, but a very smooth drinking imperial stout, that drinks way lower than the 13% ABV L_Lovecraft (744) - - OCT 16, 2017
