3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of black coffee, dark soy beans, and roasted barley. Pours black with some decent white lacing. Tastes very bitter with roast barley coming through and a hint of anis. Very dark and a little harsh but definitely a strong stout. I just wasn’t feeling this one.

Pours dark brown, almost black with light beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavour of roasted malt, burnt sugar, hoppy bitterness and coffee. This is why basics matter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Pours black in the glass with some reddish hints showing through the edges. The head is small and beige, receding to a small cap with some delicate lacing.
The aroma is dominated by roasted black malts, almost burnt notes, cocoa and a surprisingly noticeable hop presence. There is a bit more sweetness than the Hr Frederiksen.
The taste is more of the same with some sweet chocolate malts and toasted, smoky black malts combining to form the backbone of the taste with the citrus from the hops layered on top with some dark fruit sweetness as well.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied for the style, though it’s certainly on the lighter side if you’re expecting an impy stout.
This is almost a semi-imperial stout as it’s got much of the complexity and flavor of an impy stout but with a lighter body. It makes it seriously drinkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I stort sett helt svart öl med fluffigt härligt skum. En vacker öl. Doftar lätt rostat med en maltig sötma och mörk choklad. Det finns både rostade toner och humle i smaken men ingen av dessa tar över. Det är en elegant och harmonisk öl, men med mycket smak och en härligt tjock oljig munkänsla.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A powerful new world stout of the highest order. Pours with an amazingly fluffy ice cream sunday head. Really pretty. Deeply flavoured nose with sweet roast and clear cut dark chocolate. Good penetration here. Roast and chocolate takes a back seat in the palate as the hops come through. Not at all over powering but it does straighten / tighten the flavours. Soft, elegant finish.
