At a tasting, many thanks DSG, zvikar and Ariel, very dark brown colour, small creamy head, aroma of dark bread, some charred wood and mushrooms, flavour of dark fruits, dark sour bread, some woodiness and coffee, quite strong sourness. Good and highly enjoyable.

Vestergaard (257) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2014
Thanks to klimaet. Bottle. Pours black with a big, brown head. Aroma is very roasted, and got much of the oatmeal stout characters. Slight bitter berries and a little bit of smoke. Taste is very bitter and burned. Lots of almost salmiak-like licorice. Cranberries offer a little fruityness, but it’s still a pretty one sided beer. Still quite delicious!

Klimaet (72) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle shared with Vestergaard. Ma homeboy. Pours pitch black with a brownish head. Aromas of roasted liqorice, coffee and some sweet fruits. Dark chocolate. Bittersweet flavour, very roasted and slight fruitiness. Could have been stronger for my taste. Bitter and roasted finish. Very nice.

merzbeer (8) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2014 does not count
Take away from The Evening Star in Brighton - this beer is very complex. The flavor is all licorice, chocolate, cranberry, and molasses; however, it tastes quite light and hoppy. It somehow maintains a smooth, velvety mouthfeel despite the lightness. When poured from the jug, it looked amazing. Great thick head, looking like chocolate milk.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Tap at Max’s 4/27/14. Wow. This is phenomenal. The licorice and cranberry balance each other out perfectly. Sandy sugary chocolate. Wow. This is the best Imperial Stout I’ve had in a long time. Has a coffee touch. Excellent fluffy body, nice UK feel. Black licorice comes out the more you sip at it.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2014 330ml bottle shared with jeevan. This is a dark fella for sure. Black, black, black. Aromas of liquorice and coffee. Taste has lots of big roasty notes, light fruit. Finishes dark and long. Great.
