As with all clown shoes brews, it's good but not mind blowing. I've had better and worse stouts. Worth trying but that's it.,

Bottle from systembolaget in Sweden. Nice long lastning yellow -brown head. Black color. Rich roasted malty with dark chrystal malt that lacks coffey that i think improves this stout. Full rich malt taste with chocolats and balanced caramell taste. Medium bitterness and full body. The only bad thing with this beer is the prise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar 21 months ago ($10.99). Pours black with some brown around the edges and an impressive 2.5 fingers of creamy light brown foam. AROMA of mildly roasted malts, roasted nuts, mild coffee, heavy toffee, and sweet fruit. FLAVOR of heavily dark roasted and ashy malts, sticky stewed dark fruits, bitter baker’s chocolate, and heavy dark coffee. I wonder if this is possibly lightly infected as the big fruitiness throws me off a little bit. The very high ABV is mostly concealed in the nose and mouth, but there is a noticeable burn as it goes down the ol’ gullet. Not a very nuanced impy stout and I do wonder if it’s lightly infected, but it goes down easily enough which is a surprise considering the huge ABV. (502, 927)
