W aromacie sporo kawy, palonych słodów, lukrecji. W smaku kawa dominuje, mocno palone i coś dziwnego, może ta lukrecja właśnie.

Bomber, 2017 vintage. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, molasses and licorice. Pours deep brown with a thin light brown head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors with molasses notes as well as a full body and rich mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with chocolate and licorice flavors as well as roasted malt flavors that linger on the palate after each sip. Very nice stout.

Huge thanks Raoul for this bottle that we share together at the Pibar in Lausanne, yesterday. In my point of view, it is the perfect nectar before to sleep, to caress the night dragons and to dream for a couple of hours or close to your fireplace making crazy alexandrins. The body is a solid black and heavy color, thin and white/brown head staying few moment. The carbonation is regular for the style. The taste and aromas are magic, a beer that you drink step by step like your thinkings of philosophy: roasted malt, dry for the style, hop and solid notes of licorice, the taste is becoming more powerful while you drink it, some dark chocolate and vanilla notes, alcool not so high for the style, a good experience.

imperial_suchy (284) - Rybnik, POLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Piwo czarne, z beżową obfitą pianą. W aromacie czekolada, sos sojowy, praliny, kakao. W smaku kawa, gorzka czekolada, pralinki, rodzynki. Alkohol bardzo, ale to bardzo delikatnie wyczuwalny, likierowy. Klasycznie smakujący imperialny stout bez fajerwerków- jak dla mnie git.
