Bottle. Pour is viscous black with a small light brown head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, roasted malt with hints of cocoa, junipr, coffee, and light pine hop. Flavor is coffee roasted malt up front with a light nuttiness along with an interesting thai-spice note. Also notes of roasted malt and a deep fruitiness. Not a boring beer. The Thai-like spice in the middle is strange and i cannot put my finger on it. Sometimes it’s there; other times it’s gone. Big beer.

I’m expecting this to be on tap in heaven. One of the most chewy full bodied stouts I have had. Dense and opaque black color with dark chocolate fudge, burnt sugar, rich caramel, and light roast characters. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Black in color and thick with a small fading tan head. The aroma is intense as hell, typical Euro imperial stout profile, dark chocolate, licorice, molasses, coffee, earth. The flavor is sweet and chocolatey with a bitter coffee ground finish. Again, very intense. Full bodied and slick. Hides the booze well. Praise Jesus! This is a good brewski.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very very dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma roasted malt, coffee. Full body, syrupy mouthfeel, some alcohol. Flavor is pretty sweet, toasty, mocha, some dark fruits, malt. Some interesting flavors and less alcohol presence than expected but I just could not get into this one, even though it’s not too sweet it’s overly dense and heavy and syrupy.

Intensiv malziger, angenehm süßer Antrunk. Weich herb, schokoladig, trocken, was in diesem Fall aber passt. Viskos, das nun steigend trockene Mundgefühl stört. Weich, unsüffig aber gut. 12/11/11/11//11
