3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Coffee and dark cholkad in taste but also fills out the taste with hints of soy. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Have got a tip that this beer will be really good but I’m not impressed by this beer though. OK, but not more. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Pitch black, brown creamy head. Mocha, milk chocolate, leather, vanilla, ripe fruits, alcoholic warmth, a little smoky. Bitter, roasted, fruity and sweet: complex stout! Not too dry aftertaste, that keeps lingering on sweet chocolate and coffee. As it warms the chocolate and coffee tones get more bitter and astringent. Medium carbonation, big body, creamy soft (!) mouthfeel. One of the best beers I’ve tasted.

330ml bottle. Very dark pour with a thin tan head. Malty nose, sweet malty taste but with enough fruity sharpness to balance it out. Excellent

I think that I picked this up from Beers of Europe, consumed onboard DFDS Ferry Ijmuiden - Newcastle, Monday 29th September 2014. Pours black, pitch black, shark eye black with a tan head. Very smooth in mouth, creamy, soft roastiness, really drinkable for the abv. Some sweet liquorice and coffee. Good. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov16 3.6

"first impression at a mass tasting was not so good, but since we had it at the tail end, i didn’t score it til now, after a 2nd solo bottle, which was really quite enjoyable. pours near black and pretty thick. smells and tastes of char, dark fruit, heavy roast. quite sweet with a slight bitter smoke aftertaste. lots going on. while not one of my favorite impy’s, it was quite good."

Bottle@nkbar. Black, thick oily pour. Intesive dark dry chocolate, woody coffee. Full flavoured, bit ashy roasty charred. Sweetness, good bitters. Really intensive, surprisingly drinkable. Isn’t fluffy soft, more of a hard focused one. The ashy roasty gets a bit too much towards the end.

Snifter tap at Caliente in Pittsburgh. Big, bold, heavy in every category. Nothing fails in this perfect concoction of goodness. To be taken in small doses.

Smell is dark chocolate, faint vanilla, raisin, plus a mild mineral smell. Taste is the same plus mild alcohol and a bit of creamed coffee. Light to medium carbonation with medium body.
