3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours jetblack with a small frothy brown head. All I get from the aroma are the roasted malts and a bit of chocolate. Taste is of lightly roasted malts, sweet dark fruits, chocolate, molasses and licorice. Has the taste of malts, licorice and...smoke in the aftertaste. Body is above medium but not full. Very sweet imperial stout and has no bite. Not bad, but nothing special either. A bit boring really.

Milk chocolate aroma. Opaque, yellowish head, good lace. Milk chocolate, light bitter, spices, sweet, hint of soy sauce. Flavourful, bit too sweet for me.
