Nose: Deep velvet’ish candynight… even the smell is to die for. Insane! Choco-coffee. Barrel aged amazeballs! The best that can be imagined, silky smooth, adult beer. This is everything.
The taste: Nutty, sweet, vanilla, marsmallowy
Chocolate mousse… perfect texture. Perfect balance. Not overly sweet as one expected. Absolutely mindblowing, with a nice tingeling spice sting to it in the beginning. Then, thick oily body that entangles in layers of heat, chocolaty sweetness. The marshmallows are clear as day here, providing the longest sweet aftertaste imaginable. Strange. Not exaggerated at all either, just incredible. Hands down. I hereby leave all hold-back and declare the best imperial stout (if not beer) in the world. Bottle 2553/3070. This is it.
