4.25/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a pitch-black coloration with a small, creamy, mocha-colored head. Smells of roasted, caramel malt and strong cinnamon and tonka notes, as well as lighter vanilla, milk chocolate and just a hint of licorice. Taste follows the nose, with an excellent balance of roasted, caramel malt, strong notes of cinnamon and tonka, lighter notes of vanilla and milk chocolate and just a hint of dark fruit, licorice and molasses. Finishes bittersweet, with a light bitterness and some roasted malt, cinnamon and tonka lingering in the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel with a rich body and light/medium carbonation.

While this may be just a tad too sweet and boozy for my personal taste, it's still a rather well-balanced, rich and complex Imperial Stout that brings out all the different additives nicely without them getting into each others way too much, except perhaps for the cinnamon, which isn't really too overpowering either though. The more roasty and bitter notes really help balancing out the sweeter aspects of this all in all, making for a rather enjoyable brew.

With a heavy presence of tonka beans backed up by vanilla and cinnamon, this imperial stout delivers a heavy boost to my evening. Nice mouthfeel and balanced roastiness. Not quite sweet for a dessert s
Imperial stout
That's a good one.

Bottle at The Situation, served in a trappist glass. Pours a black colour, tiny head with almost no retention, no lacing.
Aroma, well, label reads it has coffee beans, vanilla and cinnamon, but I smell mostly coconut. The rest comes later, alongside some chocolate and dried fruits.
Full body, sticky texture, no carbonation. Sweet finish.
Taste follows the aroma, first coconut and later all the rest.
