Black with dark brown thick head. Picked up notes of espresso, dark chocoloate and burned malt in the nose. Flavor was very intense with a thick mouthfeel. Oily and burned. Packed with burned malt, espresso, dark chocolate. All grain and boy does that work. Not a dextrose bomb like so many other high ABV stouts. Intense though balanced. Simply lovely - masterpiece!
From Boxbeers. 2017 edition. In Teku glass. Watching Broken mirror 3x05-06. With cured pork loin. Very dark, thick, sticky and sweet, with lots of chocolate and comforting warmth from the abv that doesnt translate to an alcoholic taste Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2017
Batch 2016 #1251 BB 02/2021 from Bucket Boys, Sydney
Seriously proper like black hole black body - solid opaque dense - holds a orange-tan cream.
Bit of a combination of rich dark malt & hop on the nose - cocoa, espresso, dark toffee & toast, citrus, woody spice.
Big body, slick, holds on a tremendous amount of time, warm but not hot, rich but not cloying, acrid but not astringent.
Very thick - chewy dark chocolate, bitter orange, sump oil (apparently I know what that tastes like?), leafy hop, wood hop, sappy, yeah there's quite a bit of hop here lending a big bitterness and extra texture. Burnt sugars linger on the finish, lots of other stuff, maybe some dark fruits too, yeah, booze too.
Pretty bloody huge - sort of love to put this away for a number of years! kdb88 (9) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2017 does not count
A full bodied Imp Stout. Tasted it fresh and tasted it aged for a 1 year, and alot of the taste notes are the same. Thick, almost chewy imperial stout, that is perfectly balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Alot of licorice in the finish, with some light smokiness at the end. Lovely stout!
