4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a 1 finger brown head.
Aroma has roasted malt, ground coffee beans, honey/syrup, citrus and some alcohol.
Taste is pretty sweet as first, winegum like, then roasted malt followed by a dry after taste with lots of citrus hops. Kind of like a black IPA in the taste but muscled up.
Smooth mouth feel, medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours jet black and a chocolate head. Mostly dark chocolate on the nose. Taste wasn’t as rich as I was Expecting, Coffee and dark chocolate and a hint of bitterness to round out each sip. A good stout however hoped for a little more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Henrik the Great. Who else. Batch 582. Poured a veeeery dark brown/black body, opaque with a small tan/brown head. The aroma was a clear mark of the style, sticky, sweet, dark malts and caramel, with some light aromatic hop notes... and something strange, unfamiliar and wrong. The taste... humm. Ok, like this, the backbone/body is a respectable heavy, sticky, slightly roasty maltiness, slightly oily. Zeus, another hop that I have yet to build my opinion on, though I’ve tried several examples, gives an agrumey, lemony maybe note that... well, honestly, just doesn’t fit. Amager usually does a brilliant job with this type of beer, this time, less so. It’s a good beer, but from this brewery (one of my top 3 in the world) I expected more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tiny beige head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Cappuccino and boiled sweet aromas mix with a strong cured ham aroma, with some faint leafy hops wafting through. Herbal hops up front lead into a sweet, syrupy body, with mint humbug and honey flavours coming through. A touch of black coffee leads into jamon iberico ham in the finish, with a slight smoky aftertaste. There are some quite unusual flavours in this beer, making for an imperial stout that is a little out of the ordinary, but still quite enjoyable.
