0,5 l bottle, courtesy of Ogreface, thanks!
Poured deep black with a lot of sediment, fine creamy beige head that melts down to a small lacing white head. Aroma of burnt wood, ash and dead fallen leaves, eart and tobacco, liquerice. Oily density, liquerice with molasses, roasted grains and earth, ash and tobacco, some plum, burnt wood. Nice, more on the dry side.

Bottle. Pours Black with a tan head. Aroma of bitter black chocolate. Loads of roast malt character with chocolate the governing flavour. Definite liquorice as well. Slight level of reinforced madierised alcohol burn. Candy plums. A really well made imperial. Thick and decadent.

Flaske: Sort olieret øl med et lille skumhoved. Duft af korn som i meget korn. Smagen er imperial stout på korn. Ingen chokolade eller kaffe. Tydelig amerikansk, lidt sær men dejlig øl anyhoo.
