COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

Small bottle from Julio’s. Pours out jet black with a lacy tan head. Aroma of sweet plum, roasty malt, smoke and earthy woody booze. Flavor is super complex and very tasty. Layers of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, spicy fruit, herbs and smoke. Thick and chewy body. Very impressive.

davidezdonz (633) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 19, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 24th February 2017, and poured into a snifter glass. It poured a pitch black colour with a one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly but left some nice lacing. Aromas of roasty coffee, chocolate, crème brûlée, caramel, some dark fruits like plum and fig and a touch of smokiness. Tastes similar to the aroma except the dark fruits and char smokiness are more prominent whereas the roasty coffee and chocolate notes are more in the background. There is also some bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was an interesting Imperial Stout. Body was a lighter than I prefer and carbonation perhaps a tad too high. But still definitely worth a try.

mkel07 (6549) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 061016. Hints of smoke and chocolate are the first things that you notice with this beer, apart from the deep space black colour. This is an awesome beer that sits in the mouth and leaves a long slightly burnt aftertaste in the mouth.
