Ink black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is burnt, dark roasty, dark chocolate, licorice, molasses. Hoppiness to keep balance. Flavor follows. Strong Bittersweet. Pleasant alcohol warmth. Medium to full body.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Cask at Cask Days in Toronto, served in a mason jar. Pours black with a large, rocky tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose has huge roasted malts and coffee, along with molasses, vanilla and chocolate. The flavour is medium sweet with chocolate and molasses combined iwth vanilla, toasted malts and herbal earthy hops. The finish is long and somewhat bitter with coffee, roasted malts and subtle hops. On the palate it is full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, wow, a great imperial stout with elegant malts. 2014-10-24

One of my favorites from SN. Look forward to the release each year. Great price point. Not as boozy as last years fresh release. Drinks well now or with a little age.

Cheers Joe. Jet black pour with a murky head and lace. Sweet, treacle liquorice aroma with hint of hop. Bitter roasted malt, toasty flavour with a warming finish.

Bottle vintage 2014. Black oily colour with two fingers of chocolate mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, anise, and coffee. Taste is anise, followed by roasted malts, and coffee, finish has some roast but is quite smooth, fu,l bodied mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Nice and roasty, this is a really solid impy.

Poured from bottle, deep dark black brown with light brown low head. Aroma is nicely complex with notes of coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, herbs and a trace of liquorice. Taste is very well balanced, sweetness, bitterness and body well held together. Notes of coffee, caramel, dark bread, dried fruit, some chocolate and a trace of butterscotch.

Olajosan foly, sűrű s fekete ital ez, ami likőrs, malta kekszes, illatos dohnyos, kakas, kesernys, medvecukros, fsan fanyarks s igen szraz. Remek itka!
