3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good strong stout. Lots of chocolate and coffee flavors. I think it would have done better with a little less alcohol as there is a bit too much of a booze flavor.
Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, black malt, dark chocolate. Black with tan head. Taste is moderate malt bitter, light sweet, bitter chocolate. Full body, oily feel and roasted malt, chocolate finish., dropi6 (707) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2017

[24.6.17 backlog z notatek] btl. 75cl. Trwała brązowa piana. W aromacie mleczna czekolada. Duże wysycenie. Ostry, intensywny smak. Czekolada z dużą ilością kakao. Alkohol piecze w przełyku. erikaraeb (325) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Pretty typical stout spectrum flavors - coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, though a little more bitter than usual. Thick bod, but could be creamier - the bitterness cuts whatever smoothness is present. ironcontra (494) - ATL, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Grape, soy sauce, dry chocolate, nuts, slightly bitter finish, it's a good stout but to me didn't seem that memorable, nothing particularly unique to it, but alco is very well hidden tho, and with a nice creamy head

I got this from South Bay D&L. Thanks Joey!
This one pours from 750ml caged and corked bottle just a notch up from pitch black and a big 3 finger billowy head of tannish foam...err..I hope it doesn't overflow. Nope. My mouth prevented that from happening. lol Very nice tasting foam.
The smell is lighter than I expected but I'm getting some dark fruit, milk chocolate, and some coffee.
The real first sip and the dark fruit is pretty darned amazing; plum & raisin are there and aren't shy at all. Next comes the chocolate and the coffee and they work very well with the fruit indeed. The alcohol is so well hidden it's scary. Just some warming long after the swallow. Even so, I'm definitely going to stretch this session out to the max. 1 because of the abv, 2 because it's so damn delicious!
Awesome head retention here and some nice sticky tan lacing all over my glass. It borders on a really full mouthfeel and the carbonation is light but right.The finish has a slight bitterness that I feel is both from notes of dark chocolate and a touch of citrus hops. Wow. This is a really smooth drinking, packed with flavour Imperial Stout and I'm so glad I sought it out. One of the very best that I've tried, for sure.
