3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, big brown head. Smells of yeast, roast, malts, hints of smoke and earthy hops. Taste is moderate sweet, yeast flavors, coffee, very dry mouthfeel, moderate bitter finish with coffee and soil. Quite ok beer, but far away from what i call an imperial stout. More of a stout...or a porter...

It’s a pitch black impy with a dense creamy head. The aroma has notes of smoke, licorice, burnt caramel, dark chocolate and probably juniper. The flavor is fairly dry with notes of licorice, juniper, dark chocolate, light smoke, fruits, roasted malt and the finish is fairly dry with licorice and a touch of juniper. It’s very well balanced, pleasant and nice.
