From notes:

A: This pours like any other imperial stout I had, pitch black with a light mocha like head that decent duration. Good lacing.

S: Well, well, well, what do we have over here. This is something else. I've had REALLY good beers in my life, but this feels like a special moment. Although the smell is light, the main ingredients are there: cocoa, cinammon, vanilla, coconut, peppers, coffee, milk chocolate. And it all seems so damn COHERENT.

T: It's just like the smell, all that is supposed to be there, is there, and strong. You get a strong cocoa/coffee attack, with a wave of sweetness that comes with milk chocolate notes and vanilla, finishes with a light smoke and nice spicyness from the cinammon and peppers. This beer SHOULDN'T WORK. But it does, and it is all very coherent. A tiny bit of alcohol that helps with the aftertaste, amazing.

M: Tight heavy and luscious feel, very creamy and never sticky it seem.

D: Superbly drinkable for the style and the ABV.

This is my favourite beer of all time. Although it isn't perfect, it is the one that gave me the strongest and fondest memory I have of a beer. Amazing stuff that NEEDS to be more available.

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by Richard - thanks. 2014 Vintage.

A: Pours blacker than a moonless night with a half-inch thick mocha head which sits like a king and leaves streaks of lace.

N: Luscious dark chocolate, roasty malts, vanilla, peppery spices, cinnamon, faint coffee.

T: Follows nose with big roast, chocolate mole, vanilla, cinnamon. Very well balanced.

M: Full body and medium carbonation. Rich, full, decadent complex mix, finishes with peppery spice, vanilla, and roasted chocolate.

O: Whoa, a fresh bottle reminds me how good this is. Always a treat.
