God på lukt ogsmak. Rik fylde. Dette er et godt øl å servere som desert etter mat i mindre mengder.

Has a deep dark color. Is silky smooth mouthfeel with a toasty malt . Good smooth creamy consistency with a nice backbone. With a hint of a sweet finish. Overall a pleasant stout.

Purchased a 6-pack of this a few years back (written limited bottling - winter 09-10). Pours a dark colour with a mocha creamy head, good retention and decent thick lacing. Aromas of roasted malts with loads of chocolate, hints of liquorice and coffee. Roasted malts in the taste with the chocolate being pretty mild, but good coffee lingering in the aftertaste. Alcohol is very well-hidden with no burning at all. Notes of nuts, here and there. A really nice Imperial Chocolate Stout. Just a little heavy to have more than one. Thankfully, the bottles are the right size for this one.

Almost black with medium head. Chocolate and raisins in the aroma. Also some tar and citrus in the taste. Full mouthfeel and bitterness.

Pours a solid black with a small and diminishing tan head. Aromas of stewed fruit, raisins, currants and black coffee. Thick bodied. Taste starts out with roasted malt, bitter chocolate, dark fruits, liquorice and a little smoke. While it’s quite intense in the mouth, it has a surprisingly clean finish with a light fruity/aniseed aftertaste. Pretty awesome.

35.5cl bottle. Pours black with a nice lasting light brown head. Aroma is not as chocolaty as expected, there’s some licorice and hints of vanilla as well (soft overall). The chocolate is more evident when tasting: definetely dark chocolate. Burned malts and coffee grains are also noticeable. Warm sensation in the back, could even pass as Barrel Aged. Some alcohol (not excessive though), little or no sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Very good and cheap.

My first chocolate stout and the beer that got me hooked on them. Smells sweet with mocha and coffee notes as well as a mild fruitiness that hints to the complexities to come. Pours dark, dark, almost sanguine black with a nice brown head. Surprising legs to this one, and the alcohol is very well hidden. Tastes somewhat bitter, almost more from bitter chocolate than from the presence of hops. Comes at you strong with notes of vanilla (which is a marvelous compliment) coffee, and malt, then ends with a puff of smoke. Even for a stout this one is creamy, and really only compliments certain occasions. When you are in the mood for a good stout however, this is as good as it gets. Coats your mouth in smooth bittersweet chocolatey goodness and depending on how many you’re willing to drink: knocks you on your can pretty fast. I usually put away stouts with ease, but with such a well hidden presence of alcohol, this one has snuck up on me before.

Good looking and smelling stout. Lovely flavours, but lacking that extra punch you need from a stout. Very quaffable though.

Birra in classico stile imperial stout, molto amara con schiuma nocciola poco persistente. Aroma e sapore di cioccolato e caffè. Un buona stout, ma non il mio stile preferito.
