Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Pours jet black with a brown head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, some vanilla. Taste is heavy sweet, roast and toast, coffee, hints of chili, just that little nice sting there. Almost heavy bitter finish, some hops. A very nice imperial stout. A thick sticky malty soup with some chili. A wonderful beer; maybe a bit heavy on the alcohol but this is a real treat! More of this please

kajser27 (157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 22, 2015
Opaque black with a non lasting weakish dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee seeds and chilli. Taste starts sweet malt and chocolate, pepper comes into play, bit of licorice, cocoa powder, bitter dry coffee active in the finish along with some alcohol. Full bodied and thick. Alcohol heat and chilli pepper leave a very warm bite in the back of the throat for a long aftertaste.

pkomar (218) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Very strong and complex aroma. Coffee and chocolate (smells like it was just made, really fresh). A bit of spicy aroma (maybe chillies) and some vanilla. Pours jet black with small head. Taste is incredible. Sweet, moderate bitterness, Really strong chocolate, long and noble aftertaste. Some liquor notes in there as well. Gets better as it gets warmer. Outstanding beer, best one I’ve tried so far. To sum it up: excellent ris.
