4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large beige head, which lasts very well, leaving excellent lacing. The aroma is a weighty and quite savoury mix of cured meats, espresso and some mild spice notes. Quite strong spice and pepper hops lead into a surprisingly smooth blend of smoke and charcuterie notes. The finish has a nice bitter cocoa flavour to it. This is an interesting imperial stout, both quite hoppy and unusually savoury. Nevertheless, it all works well together to create a hefty and very pleasant stout.

Piana drobna powoli opada dziobiąc szkło. Kolor czarny. Aromat, ciemne słody, palonośc, kawa, słodki likierowy z zapachem suszonych owoców. Smak, wysoka palonośc, kawa, gorzka czekolada, wyraźne suszone owoce i leśne chmielenie z zaznaczoną goryczką. Jest dość słodko likierowe, ale nie jest to ulepek, kontra z wysokiej paloności i nut kwaskowych od nich balansuje piwo. alkohol ułożony, szlachetnie wyczuwalny. Bardzo dobry RIS, nic nie urwało.

The Nose is a bit shy, but the flavour is fantastic.
Great Imperial stout. SebBrews (191) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - FEB 23, 2017
Pours jet black with a thin, quickly vanishing espresso head. Nose is dark malts, hops, roasted coffee and licorice. Taste is moderately bitter roasted malts with slightly burnt and ashy flavours towards the end. Notes of coffee, licorice, burnt toast and some dark fruits. Boozy kick. Medium to full body, moderately thick texture, low (too low, actually) carbonation, bitter aftertaste. Ok-ish, but not a beer to remember. kingstoni (2134) - FINLAND - DEC 17, 2016
