3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 1 pt 6 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a dense chocolate brown head diminishing to a nce lacework. Aroma is mild roasted, chocolate and light hoppy. Flavour Light roasted malt, chocolate (dominantly) and light liqourice note before a solid hops flavour appears and nicely breaking the dense dark flavours. Sweet flavoured with a distinct caramel to light sugarish note. Smooth mouthfeel and the 11.7% are amazingly well hidden. Nice and balanced brew yet doesn’t have the subtle complexities of the top 50 imp stouts.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Vintage 2003 - sampled 2005] An almost opaque brown beer with a dense brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of coffe and chocolate, but also some caramel. The flavor is very powerful with strong notes of alcohol and Cascade hops to begin with, but then coffee and chocolate on a very sweet background and with the alcohol lingering in the background, and the end is quite dry with a combination of roasted malt and bitterness, but still with the alcohol making its presence know. Nice.

30th April 2015
Bigger tasting at Ronny’s flat, Copenhagen. Almost clear very dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy and light and has fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts and mild dark chocolate. Alcohol spicy finish. Amazed I’ve never had this but then it was a bit (just a bit) of a let down.
