2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg, on August 30, 2009
Black color, no head. Alcohol, roasted and chocolate scent. Salty, licorice, sweet taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Guess it wouldn’t hurt to let this one rest a couple of years to get the sharp alcohol edge to wear off a bit.

Alcholwarmth and roast dominates the end. Extreme.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, big thanks to Alexander for this one. Pours a pitch black color with a small, almost non-existing head, which soon becomes a small ring of foam around the glass edge. Aroma is really powerful and nice; riesen (dark chocolate toffee), nuts, coffee, spices and liquorice. What a wonderful aroma ... Flavour is as powerful as the aroma with much riesen, dark chocolate, nuts, spices, coffee and liquorice. Fullbodied, thick on the palate, very smooth, almost oily/creamy mouthfeel, no carbonation. Warming, but the alcohol is extremely well hidden for 16%. A fantastic beer, all categories, and it feels balanced for a super strong imperial stout/porter. I love it!
