3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with minimal beige head. Massive peat, burnt toast, tart berries, yoghurt, barnyard. Taste is sour, with a light sweetness and burnt bitter finish. Medium bodied. Complex and interesting stuff, but not too into the yoghurt notes. Seems a bit infected or something.

Pitch black, big and very dense head. Incredibly strong aroma of peated malt, licorice, smoked wood with chocolate background. Taste is very dry, full of peat, slighlty smoked and chocolate. Creamy, full body. Soft carbonation. Rich and tasty beer, rather for peated-beer lovers.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. Nice head still flowing from the bottle. Incredibly full flavour of peat, licorice and chocolate. One of the best imperial stouts I've tried so far. Long aftertaste, only the aroma is a bit timid.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Robe noire, plate, liquoreuse. Nez de raisin sec, alcool fort, whisky. En bouche : corps très lourd, liquoreuse, l’amertume se fait ressentir, puis une explosion de saveur : café, fruits à l’eau de vie, fumé, malts torréfié. La longueur en bouche est exceptionnelle. L’alcool est très présent. Sans doute très interessant à oublier des années dans la cave ...
