4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Pitch black, brown film of a head. Toast, malts, caramel, nuts in the aroma, big aroma profile. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Big palate. Surprisingly huge considering it´s pretty young. Obvious yeast notes. Thick and oily, avarage carbonation, fantastic balance. Very long finish. Another winner from Borg!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at 73, Reykjavik, vintage 2013, bb 2025
Black color with small brown head. Mild aroma of roasted malt. Similar to the Nr. 23, it has a nice flavor of dark chocolate shavings, but it’s rather dry for the style; some roasted nuts; correct bitterness, but it’s a bit stale in the final.

World Cup Beer. Black with a small off-white head. Roasted aroma of licorice and chocolate, with soy sauce and a touch of leather. Sweet malty flavour with alcohol, soy sauce and licorice and a hard roasted, ashy finish. Not really my kind of imperial stout
