draft. pours thick black with a tan head. nice blend of espresso, chocolate notes. smooth but with a solid bitter. an excellent well balanced imperial.
Bottle 330ml. Jet black, fluffy head with the colour of milk chocolate. Rich sweet aroma with toffee, caramel and also some fortified wine. Palate is thick and sticky, almost too sticky to be good. Taste is surprisingly dry with heavily roasted malts, coffee and chocolate (vanilla in the background?) Good one! omikr0n (948) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with nice dark brown head. Aroma is peat, wood, roasty, somewhat herbal. Taste is bitter and sweet with coffee, fresh milk, peat, some minty and herbal tones. Nice bitter aftertaste. ClearHead (43) - FINLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Bottle bought 09/2017, BB date 15.4.2018. Black, tan brown head that lasts forever. Tobacco, malt, coffee in aroma, very good. Tastes sweet and quite bitter at first. Dark taste with tobacco, licorice, malt and more. Bitterness turns into dryness. Full bodied. Excellent, if you like the style. Personally, I prefer something less bitter. Try it... zoucrew102 (2050) - - SEP 17, 2017
Can, 2017 vintage. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and toffee. Pours deep brown with a large mocha brown head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt, dark chocolate and some coffee flavors with a nice full body and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with caramel and toffee sweetness with a good amount of roasted malt lingering on the palate after each sip. Very nice imperial stout. beergearbox (61) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2017
To the three good C's: conscience, claret, and cash.
