Bottle from Ølkonsortiet Aalborg enjoyed at home
Pours dark dark, black in glass, big brown head. Smells of peat, rasted malts and smoke. Taste is medium sweet, the peaty malts come nicely through here, also coffee, some smoke and alot of roasted malts. Medium to heavy bitter, alot of coffee. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. A super fantastic imperial stout made with peated malts. This malt character is just amazing, i would say world class
