3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep black with huge and compact brown head, very nice appearance. Nose is roasty and milky. Aromas are roasted malts, caramel, dry fruits, dark fruits (sour cherry), coffee, dark chocolate, alcohol. Low carbonation, full body. Long roasty and alcoholic finish. A bit unbalanced, because of the strong alcoholic taste, but a very nice brew anyway!

I bought this bottle at the "cave à bulles" Paris. I drank it with one friend at Petit-Lancy. This beer is a well balanced imperial stout dark body, brown foam rather low carbonation but it is normal fir the style. The taste is with roasted malt, hop, vanilla, bitter chocolate, licor, powerful in the mouth.

Bottle 0,33l, aged for 2 years, shared with CanCrusher. Pours almost black color with thin creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, nuts, chocolate and cognac. Tastes of dark chocolate, relatively sweet with rich roasted maltiness, nuttiness and warming mouthfeel. Alcohol is present, although well hidden, while finish is quite bitter, but still very balanced beer. Full body, thick creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Tzar...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg @ Palais de la Biere, Lyon. Deep brown with a tight tan head. Nose of charred grain, a bit of soy sauce. Chocolate syrup. Flavor is sweet and very assertive. Chocolate syrup. Hot booziness. Roasted coffee. Earthy char. Oily and substantial. Rich. OK effort, but lacks the control and cohesion that seperate the best in the style.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2016 330mL bottle, pours an oily black with a small brown head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, light sweetness, and a little cocoa. Flavour is fairly robust, with roasted malt, dry cocoa and light-medium sweetness. Well-rounded, fairly robust and quite drinkable. Solid stuff.
