roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, and loads of hops...especially at the end just too much for me...paracetamol bitterness...nice beginning but disturbing ending.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
50cl bottle from Joogipood deTolly (Thank You for a good recommendation). Dark roasted, full bodied, pleasantly carbonated, beautiful to look at, with a perfect ABV for the type. Hopped in moderation - it does not overpower all other aromas and taste palate. Once you open the bottle - it fills the room with beautiful stout aroma. Pours pitch black with creamy head. You can not drink it in big mouthfuls - it is just to thick and heavy. Perfect all around. Hard to compare to others well balanced stouts. It has a perfect smooth, velvety texture and same start and finish. Not overly roasted and burnt, not extremely heavy on ABV and not too dry. This brew does not kick you in your feels. I have to mention Põhjala Pime Öö, which is indeed a desert stout compared to this one. This is a huge brew. Best Imperial Stout so far for me. Served at approximately 12degC.
