Jet black with a light tan head. Has a strong malty aroma. Flavor is filled with roasted malts as well as some coffee and chocolate. Rich and flavorful.
Pitch black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark fruits and some astringent roasted malt notes. Taste has milk chocolate, caramel, toasted malt, some coffee bitterness on the finish, really well balanced overall. Medium to full bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Really well made, easy drinking imperial stout. sam_uk93 (34) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Pours completely black with a dark tan, caramel head. Aroma is light spice, cinnamon, alcohol, vanilla. Taste is sweet upfront, vanilla, leading to notes of chocolate, dark roast, finishing with a nice bitterness in the end that lingers for a little. Medium carbonation, full bodied. Very nice.

Jet black pour with thin espresso head. Nice lacing. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa beans, residues of black pepper and some vanilla. Taste is upfront bittery and ashy in equal ratios, with the ash prevailing towards the end. Notes of coffee grounds, dark chocolate and cocoa. Where is the booze? Smooth and oily in texture, low carbonation. Extremely well rounded IS. danjs5 (270) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2017 Big rasin currant rum toasty roasty tar aroma with big frothy tar head and inky appearance. Looks perfect, tastes great too. Nice lacing. Silky smooth. Full tar, rum and raisin, coca and coffee mocha flavours. Somewhat smokey with imagery of back room bar. Great bitterness thoughout and also right to the end. Full flavour. Outstanding.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 Pours a deep black. Soft caramel head. Disipates quickly. The aroma has deeply roasted routes, roasted coffee beans and malt. First taste is almost salty like Marmite, helped along by the prominent alcohol volume. Later the palete adjusts to pick up smooth bitter chocolate notes that linger well after the bottle is finished. A wonderful stout, just make sure you have a good amount of time set aside to work through this monster of a drink.

Keg at Rake, Borough. Low key creamy choc. Initially sweet before more bitter coffee and berries comeThick. Creamy. Flat carb. Slightly astringent. Good! margus7 (23) - ESTONIA - AUG 25, 2017
Almost perfect black and creamy liquid with nice aroma and taste. Worth to import from so far! ANZUShophunter (511) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2017
From 2016 bottle in porter glass. Pours black with thin tan head and mocha/choc aroma. Rich and quite tasty with chocolate malt again at the fore. Smoother finish than many other i-stouts mariuspoenari (2954) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2017
Pitch black pour, tar-like, with a tall tan head that is slow to rise to the surface - looks promising! Notes of roasted malts, ash, smoke, dark roasted coffee beans, cocoa nibs, dark chocolate, dark, bitter cherries, soft caramel. Smooth texture, full, oily body, roasty and bitter finish. An amazing imperial stout, really nicely crafted. AleRider78 (1413) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours a freakin’ huge frothy, milky like head and leaves pretty thick lacing. Has a dark brown appearance, almost pitch black. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and nutty malts. Flavours are quite rich and varied with dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and some notes of toast and nutty malts. Fairly smooth and creamy mouthfeel. For a 10%abv beer, it’s really very well hidden, quite deceiving. Goes down way too easy. This one is pretty amazing and well balanced. Love it!
