3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank on tap at the International bar Zurich. Strong licorice smell and taste. Good Stout, not sure about the milky bit. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beersínímore. Pours very dark drown with a soft brown foam. Aroma is burnt rubber, coffee, milk chocolate, lactose. Good harmony. Medium body, again quite burnt, strong bitterness, pushing over the lactose sweetness which is a bit shy but still there. Palate super roasted again, continuing the beer. Dry. Works well, but not the imp stout I would prefer.

Dark chocolate, cacao, lactose, dry, dark malts, some straw. Black, massive, creamy, beige head. More dry chocolate, pralines, dark, dry cacao, soft carbonation, full bodied, bitter finish. OK Imperial Stout, but lacks balance and complexity. Bottle from BeersíníMore, Zurich.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl. Purchased in Drinks of the World, ZŁrich. Hops which are high on alpha acids on the nose. Chocolatey. Medium to full bodied. Dry finish which is reminiscent of grapefruit. I didnít get much of the lactose - itís a pitty - because I am more than just lactose tolerant. I love those stouts which are very strong with those milk stout components.
