Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne, bottled 12/18/12 Theydon_Bois (20926) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Pitch black color with no head, just a thin brown collar. Strong aroma of roasted malt, some tar, light phenol, very light banana. Thick body, just a bit oily; very good roasted malt flavor, clean, with plenty of dark chocolate, a bit salty, with some liquorice and tar, and delicate fruitiness; strong bitterness.
Powerful, extreme, very pleasant. Less resiny than an Imperial Stout, but very similar.

On tap at CBC, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of loads of chocolate, a little roast and some hops. Flavour brings out loads of dark chocolate, a significant hoppiness, and roasted malt. Supremely complex and well-rounded. Quite hoppy for an impie stout. Delicious stuff.

Bottle, 22oz. It pours a pitch black body and a dark tan head that dissapates quite soon. Molasses, roasted malts, licorice, tar hints and coffee in the aroma. Alcohol notes too. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, a bit sweetish. Licorice, roasted malts, molasses, tar and coffee in the flavor. Some bitterness. Lasting warming finish with roasted malts and licorice. A pretty pleasant one, but a bit too alcoholic. 131228
