4.23/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a sludgy, thick black with the smallest of dark tan heads.

Smells of sweet, plummy dark malts, some chocolate also comes though.

Taste is roasted, biscuit up front that goes into a more plum/grapefruit mixed with roasted malt middle before ending on sweet, complex finish with chocolate and coffee notes.

Heavy body and low carbonation. Alcohol is present, could do well to mellow some.

Damned fine Imp Stout that reminds me of a more viscous Yeti. I thought BORIS was missing something...don't feel the same way about this one.

4.56/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Look: Syrupy pour with small, very thick, creamy and dark, chocolaty head. Has relatively fast, but smooth retention, leaves a very thick, thin layer that mostly diminishes over time - very little lacing (but good, fine when the layer was still present) as a consequence. Haven't seen many as dark as this one, pitch black with brown hue.

Smell: Wonderful, the first thing I've noticed is the freshness from fruity/herbal hops and light dark wood berries sourness. Amounts of hops detected are surprising. The berries are accompanied by black currant, dry raisins and figs. All this makes a very fresh feeling. Then there is the deep roast, chocolate is dominant (mix of milk and dark) and mocha. A strong sweet backbone. Smell is full and fat but not stuffy - good counterbalance is made with fresh hops and berry esters. Also some faint alcohol crawls out when the beer warms up.

Taste: Pleasant medium sweetness with strong milk chocolate and mocha notes, that goes into even stronger dark roasted dynamics that end up in the medium-high bitterness. The bitter part starts with roast, chocolate notes and at the end goes dark roasted coffee, burned toast with light to medium hops to keep the harmony going - these make up a pleasant after-taste. In between there are still present light dark berry and currant sour notes with some dry fruits lingering on your lips. Strong hops come back every time you burp. Hint of alcohol present towards the end.

Mouthfeel: Full medium-heavy body, creamy enough, but not the fattest stout out there. Low-medium carbonation, suiting. Very light warming from the alcohol.

Overall: A massive one, good counterbalance with hops to the big dark malt character full of deep roast. Can't wait to get my hands on the barrel-aged one.
