Chocolatey with light burnt roast aroma. Pitch black, and viscous; starts with a brown head that fades to nothing. Thick chocolatey with a finish that lingers..maybe some vinilla tones in the after taste. A solid imperial stout, really enjoyable! Would love to try a barrel aged version.

Kolejny bardzo dobry klasyczny Imperial Stout ktory bez beczki i wyszukanych dodatków potrafi sie swietnie wybronic na tle konkurencji. Potezny kawowo-czekoladowy aromat i kandyzowane suszone owoce w polaczeniu z lekko rozgrzewajacym alkoholem robia robote. Taka lekko slodka kawa, duzo aksamitnego ciala i palona goryczka.

Semmi hab, fekete szín. Csokis, kávés, aszaltgyümölcsös illat. Csokis, kakaós, kávés, aszaltgyümölcsös ízvilág, csodás összhangban. Enyhén száraz, testes, közepesen szénsavas, erősen keserű. Nagyon finom sör.

Pours pitch black with a dark tan, lacing head that fades immediately. Aroma is heavy roasty, strong coffee, burnt and maybe slight vanilla beans. Lightly alcoholic/boozy note as well. Taste is nicely chocolaty with bittersweet espresso flavors. Fantastic balance between sweetness and toasty bitterness. The sweetness isn’t sticky or overpowering and the roastyness isn’t overpowering the sweetness either. A beer in equilibrium. Solid stuff! The 11% is absolutely unnoticable! Oily mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation.

W aromacie gorzka czekolada, lody czekoladowe i piernik, niezbyt intensywne. W smaku również góruje gorzka czekolada. Nie brakuje też popiołowości, alkohol wyczuwalny ale nie przeszkadza. Po delikatnym ogrzaniu wychodzi trochę słodyczy, ale generalnie jest trochę zbyt gorzkie, brakuje tu jakiejś fajnej kontry dla gorzkiej czekolady.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2017 Barwa czarna, piana ciemno beżowa mała. Aromat kawa, kakao, pumpernikiel, owoce suszone. Bajka. W smaku kawowa, gorzka czekolada, paloność, ziemistość, śliwka wędzona, pumpernikiel. Bardzo fajnie zbalansowane. Alko nie wyczuwalne. Genialne pifko.
