33cl. Bottle @ Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Pours pitch black with a very small settling creamy brown head and lacings. Nose is at first very dominated by coffee beans and chocolate. Then some vanilla, dark dried fruit and chocolate sneaks in making the nose very complex. Very vinous. Flavor has roasted coffee, fruit and a touch of vanilla and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Low carbonation. Lasting end. Delicious!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep black with medium dark brown head. Aroma is nuts, dark chocolate, phenols, licorice, a little coffee. Taste is more phenols, bitter, and not much else. A little one dimensional. Finish is more of the same stuff. Too phenolic. But not totally bad either.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of tar and coffee - my drinking mate, a ballerina, really wasn’t digging this style but she tried it anyways and agreed - no coordination can be expected after a glass of this. Flavour is nice heavy barley, with coffee and charcoal notes. It’s a bash over the head with heavy flavours and hop oils. A great imperial stout.
