4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, I think approx two years old. Pours almost black, dark brown head. Nose is very rich and intense, chocolate, roast, liquorice, dried fruits, light cherry - fantastic aroma. Taste is oily and rich, liquorice, roast, chocolate, plenty of warming booze, dries fruits. Not as fantastic as nose but excellent brew. Straightforward in a good way, as many IS these days have loads of extra stuff, barrels etc. I wonder if the booziness would round with longer aging.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Quite simply one of the best beers Iíve ever had.
Lower carbonation. Huge chocolate, cherry, some prune notes. A nice bit of sweetness and a great creamy mouthfeel. Put simply, this is one of the best beers - let alone stouts - that youíll try. If you see it, donít baulk at the price...BUY IT!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2017 Bottle. Pours a dark brown, black with some, latte-colored head. Aroma is plenty of roast, some liquorice, light smoke, earthiness. Taste is very roasted, slight smoke, some liquorice, slightly of the salty kind, some tar/peat, slight coffee. A hint of salty liquorice/tar candy. Full with decent carbonation. While you can feel the strength in the beginning, you quickly forget how strong this actually is. Getting through half a liter on your own is superbly easy.
