4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 (Draught) Pours dark brown to black. Creamy chocolate and vanilla up front in the aroma with lesser tones of plums, roasted grain, salt liquorice, asphalt and a touch of coffee. Fat and creamy nose. Dark creamy chocolate and vanilla ice cream in flavour with light notes of prunes but also some more subtle fruits in the backgrund. Also some hints of coffee, mint and maybe some sal ammoniac. Chocolate lingers with some hop bitterness and some roasted grain bitterness. Fantastic velvety and creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. No other chocolate stout comes close to this fantastic brew. Now make this Imperial…

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black, very small brownish head. Cocoa powder aroma with hints of vanilla. Cocoa powder and coffee beans in the flavor. A bit too much dark chocolate in the aftertaste for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. What a great surprise to find this beer in Stockholm. A murky brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, alcohol, over ripe fruits, prunes, and honey. The flavor is sweet with notes of cocoa, wood, prunes, and coffee, leading to a dry bitter fruity and cocoa finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 21 Sep 2007) Black colour with brief pale brown head. Roasted nose with notes of chocolate, cocoa, vanilla and slightly oaky hints. Roasted taste with chocolate, cocoa, vanilla and a distinct cocoa bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body. Great balance, loads of different tastes, but in perfect harmony. Lovely stuff!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Medium creamy offwhite head. Seemingly opaque dark red body. Smoky cocoa and vanilla aroma, very mild and balanced. Deep yet mild dry cocoa and vanilla taste, fantastically well balanced. Sweetish. Dryish cocoa and hop aftertaste. Beautiful! Incredible that they managed to balance it so well. (0.275l draft.)
