Imperial Stout – 10,2% vol. Twice the amount of dark roasted malts used, massive Imperial stout. This is a mad one. Black brown colour with a thick and creamy tan head that can be added to as you wish if you give the bottle a swirl. Give this beer time to breathe and blossom into something truly stunning. Chocolate and alcohol are right there at the front but do not at all overpower the gorgeousness that is underneath. Full of leather, vanilla, amazing wooden notes, beautifully floral character from the hops, thick Belgian chocolate, much character. The flavour of crazy wooden tartness. An extremely bitter finish seems to come out of nowhere and is what really makes this quite unique. Superb width in the mouth and coats the whole palate beautifully. Alcohol 12% in latere versies

Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a thick tan head. Lots if sticky lacing. Aroma of prunes, rich chocolate cake, wood and cocoa powder. Flavour of chocolate, raisins and a slightly peppery finish. Full body with a thick, syrupy mouthfeel. Light carbonation. Rich and flavoursome. Hides the 11.9% ABV well.

Pitch black color, thin brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, smoke. Taste is the same plus coffee and notes of hops. Medium sweet taste, light bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very nice, but also without any surprises to blow you away.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours jet black color with a medium sized beige head. Dark roasted malts on the nose, dark chocolate, faint wooden notes, distant vanilla and mild coffee. Very thick and creamy palate, lots of dry chocolate and moderately bitter and roasty malts, subtle vanilla notes and cocoa on the lingering bitter finish. Very complex yet enjoyable slow sipper. Excellent.
