4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Impressive, but classic, aspect, pitch black with a small deep brown head that immediately disappears. Aromas to coffee, liquor, roasted malts, raisins, plums, burnt sugar...the mouthfeel is basically sweet, not balanced, with the same notes that the aroma. As the beer developes, new flavors arise, such as molasses, brown sugar, rhum or Porto wine. Long development, low or null carbonation, full bodied and a oily, viscous texture for a tremendous, overwhelming, colossal imperial stout. Wow!!!!!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, 15,2 % ABV.
Ar: rich as sin, heavy roastiness, ABV very noticable, chocolate, fruity, coffee, ash, Brown sugar, molasses, vanilla.
Ap: black colour, medium, very creamy Brown head, lacing.
T: heavy cloying sweetness, very much like Tokyo* which I did not care for, the refined flavourprofile of horizon and the brute force from black are not coming through, heavy saltiness, medium bite, very boozy.
P: full bodied, soft carbonation, warming, salty and roasty finish.
O: undoubtedly powerful, but as sophisticated as a fist in your face.

wow, a new taste at every temperature. New flavours constantly bubbling up when the beer goes from cold to a warmer state. I’m not the biggest fan of stouts but this is an truly amazing stout!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deutlich malziger und etwas zu süßer Antrunk. Nur etwas zuckrig, erstaunlich süffig. Schokoladig, etwas hefig, leicht getreidig. Nett! 1212/9/11/11/11

Semplicemente una birra stellare, i tre birrifici artigianali piÃ¹ conosciuti in Europa che si uniscono per fare una birra e tra l’altro una delle piÃ¹ difficili da fare. Risultato: Imperial stout fantastica. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, pours almost black. On the palate, vanilla custard with syrup and molasses. There is also some summer pudding fruitiness to the beer.The carbonation stops the beer from becoming cloying. This is more a beer to be drunk with a desert than just quaffed.
