4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Very black, brown head. Concentrated hoppy licorice aroma. Dryish dense and full bodied with soft mouthfeel. There’s tobacco and salty licorice, reminiscent of a well aged good baltic porter, such as very old Limfjords Porter. Lovely concentrated flavours that never gets aggressive. Great stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et meget lille skumhoved. Heldigvis er der lidt karbonering. Smagen kunne være helt i top, med en del røgmalt der kunne spille perfekt med brændtheden og chokoladen. Men desværre fungerer det ikke optimalt. Smagen og duften er en lille smule off. Desværre.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is as black as it gets with a thick very brown head that tends to fade but gets more and more creamy to the point when it settles an inch high. The nose is roasted with notes of burned malts, hazel nuts and a potpouri of bitter aromas. There are some notes of lacorice and leather and a hint of vanilla and wood. The mouthfeel is huge with a creamy palate. The taste starts of with quite some bitterness that tends to change caracter as the taste developes on its journey theough your mouth and down your throat. A mild bourning feeling on the lipps from the alcohol. There are some roasted coffee, english lacorice and some burned pieces of wood and finally a touch of alcohol. Its a good imperial stout with a great masculin attitude.
