Bottle at home. Thanks Karsten and Anne for the gift. It pours clear amber with a medium to small off white head. The aroma is green pepper, sweet malt, caramel and hops. The flavour is again green pepper, light smoke, sweet sticky caramel, hops and it has a warming overwhelming alcoholic feel.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The official Odense sunny Thursday evening in June monster tasting event. Amber with a small white head. Aroma of green pepper, green leaves, cold coffee, ashtray and bready malt. Sweet, alcoholic, and weird flavour, dominated by ashtray and green pepper. It’s a fucking brilliant idea. Too bad it didn’t work.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle, 6783 of 7902. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts well and leaves some lace. The aroma is strongly woody, with a touch of soy sauce, some very light berry notes and a slight smokiness. Peppery hops blend well with a woody flavour up front, with a cranberry flavour coming into the mix. Treacley malt gives it a touch of sweetness and some body, before a slightly charry woodiness heralds the finish. There is an odd but pleasant aftertaste of spicy plum sauce. This is a very odd beer. The official "blond imperial stout" goes some way towards describing it, but doesn’t quite get the picture across. It is unlike anything else I have tried, but nevertheless very pleasant, and certainly original!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden to amber with a beige head.
Aroma: malty, some chocolate, dried dark fruit.
Taste: not roasted, but otherwise some stouty flavours, toffee, milk chocolate, earthy, cocoa, dark fruits, maybe raisins and honey.
A pretty interesting experiment, to create a blonde imperial stout. Flavour-wise it gets pretty close in some areas.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small darker cream-coloured head over metallic amber beer, cold hazed, that seems hardly carbonated. Quite coffeeish nose, roasted coffee, caramel, parsley, with chocolate. Bitter, faint-coffeeish, as a cake or a tart made with coffee; green bitter vegetables, and again caramel. Some carbonation there, all the same; slightly burning MF, quite slick, filmy feel and medium carbonated, alcoholwarming. Not my taste, I’m afraid.
