Pours almost night black in color with a bigger, stable and froth mohagony colored head.

Smells of burned rock sugar, cinnamon and gingerbread among milk chocolate and boozy praliné.

Has a fuller, sweet and creamy mouthfeel to it with a fitting, lower carbonation, which offers a late, refreshing peak.

Tastes of booze infused fudge, topped by glazed caramel and lots of cinnamon sticks, dipped into bitter chocolate. Offers a short lasting, intense sweet peak, revealing rock sugar and rum like booze warmth, soon covered by milk chocolate, cream and slighty spicy licorice. Finishes soft, calmer than its middle part, focussing on the whipped cream, mellow chocolate and complimenting, wooden and sweet cinnamon.

This just feels a little over the top to me, but it does so in a playful manner. The beer is sweet, well balanced, spicy and sweet again with a well integrated warmth, pointing out the higher abv in this. If you like sweet, high abv stouts, this one is for you.

Pours black, with a full head of brown foam. Big smell of chocolate, some roastyness. Smooth and fairly thick mouthfeel, some sharp carbonation. Pretty boozy. Taste is still quite sharp, but after that comes a bittersweet mix of chocolate and tree. Nice.

Really dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has sweet chocolate, cocoa nibs and some coconut. Taste has dark chocolate, cocoa shake and roasty bitterness on the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Really drinkable and well balanced.

This sweet imperial stout pours a pitch black motor oil body with a little head.
The aroma and flavour are quite complex with spices, cocoa and coffee notes. The sweetness is well balanced with bitterness
The mouthfeel is thick and silky
