LoFi (1551) - Göteborg, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Black with a dark brown tinge, and a dark brown head that disappears instantly. Aroma: roasted, licorice, dark chocolate, creamy, sticky toffee. Taste: chocolate liqueur, licorice, boozy, syrup, coffee, toffee, something else I can’t exactly pinpoint but recognize from some other high ABV stouts like Dark Horizon 3 and Tokyo* (I described it as red onions in DH3, and maybe it’s something like that). Full bodied. This is too sweet really, but still pretty nice.

Bottle @ bready, thanks vaiz! Aroma is huge liquorice, coffee, roast, burned molasses. Flavour is very roasty liquorice molasses coffee madness, hugely bitter and roasty yet sweet at the same time. Quite some alcohol in the finish. Long lingering roasty liquorice. Hefty but very nice.

Imperial stout d’autore! Colore nero soia ed schiuma inesistente. Al naso molto complessa con note di soia, caffè, cioccolato, liquore, radici e spezie. In bocca equilibrata tra dolcezza, amarezza ed alcolicità. Nel palato una splosione di sapori concentrati in un corpo denso e grasso che finisce in una lunga e persistente aromaticità retronasale. Si tratta di una birra magnifica ma dificile da bere. Comunque un capolaboro!

37,5cl bottle at Gainsbar in Kortrijk - Belgium. Pours dark dark. Fantastic aroma! Shouldn’t characterize this beer with denominations, it’s one of a kind! Reminds me of some very old matured beers I tasted years back. Hell yeh!

Smells like a light engine oil which is a hint of what is to come. A dark mixture of bitter chocolate & coffee with a sweet taste that is well balanced with some bitter hops. The long woody finish is extremely pleasant. Given this is a blend of three beers this a perfectly balanced beer. Rated by BrewTom

aleksander9 (369) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 -15,2%. Tasted in the city of gold, Johannesburg- pours pitch black with little reddish head. Huge aroma of dark fruits, roasted, burnt, coffee, port wine, vanilla, chocolate and some alcohol. Very fruity, vinous and burning palate. Aftertaste is port wine, cherry, dark fruit, burnt, vanilla, oak and some alcohol. Lingering dry chocolate and fruity alcohol finish. Nice alcohol burn in the stomach. Overall: wow. What a nice beer. The aroma could be a little more in your face, but this small problem compensates by a wonderful mix of dark fruity port notes and roasted malt. After a long time without a nice imperial stout, it poured directly into my hearth.
