My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.93
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.8

Intro: A 500ml waxed bottle (that while looks nice, was just a pain to open), with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown to black in colour with a half finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Milk chocolate, cream, vanilla and a light nuttiness.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, chocolate, vanilla and cream.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Lots of chocolate and vanilla and not too sweet. If body was just that little bit fuller, it would have been even better.

My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.65
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.5

Intro: A 500ml waxed bottle (looks nice but really annoying to open), with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown to black in colour with a one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Light roast, cinnamon, coffee, red bean and a hint of bourbon.
Taste: Cinnamon, bourbon sweetness, chocolate, coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Maybe too much going on here that the flavours are clashing? Cinnamon a little strong while I’m not getting any blueberry at all. Body is also lighter than I’d prefer.

Kings Night Cap

Brewery: Kings Brewing Company
Country: USA
ABV: 12.5%
Style: American Imperial Stout

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Imperial Nutella & Toasted Hazelnut Stout.

My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.42
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.3

Intro: A 500ml waxed bottle (such a pain to open), with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger tanned head that had pretty good retention and left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Nutella, nuttiness, light chocolate milk and a hint of banana bread.
Taste: Chocolate milk, Nutella, vanilla and banana cream pie like sweetness, with only hints of hazelnuts in the background.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, light bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Body was so light (too light) that the whole time it seemed like I was drinking a 6% Stout instead on an Imperial Stout. It also lacked roastiness to balance some of the sweet, and even though this is a Pastry Stout, it just lacked balance without any roast. Lastly, the hazelnut was unfortunately just hidden in the background and not really found in the flavours.

Intro: A 375ml bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Aroma: Tart, funky, cherry, oak with a hint of band aid.
Taste: Sour, tart, funky, oak, lemon juice, lemon rind, cherry.

Overall: Aroma was fine, but taste was a bit weird for me with too much funk which masked the cherries a bit.
