3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a small light beige head. Nose is roasted bread, dark chocolate, black berries and hints of salty licorice and tar. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, ashes, tar and hints of herbal licorice and burnt toast. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. A nice imperial stout on the "burnt side of things", but I prefer the 1/2 Idjit, actually.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2013 Not to much aroma, but some coffee and leather. Sexy black appearance with nice brown foam. The taste hits me in middle/back of the mouth with coffee, some vanilla, chocolate and some mild carbonation. Moves backwards in mouth with mild hop bitterness before opening like you have swallowed something big.Nice full bodied, almost oily palate. Overall a nice balanced beer, but nothing i will remember.UPDATE: Tastes way better near room temperature

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 02.06.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral and roasted, dark malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, nuts, a hint of unripe banana. Taste is balanced, roasted dark malts, burnt caramel, hay, cocoa, toast, dark sugar, grass, coffee, a hint of unripe banana. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, but nothing really special about it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
17/04 Anther ogivlado’s 0.33 l bottle, great thanks for sharing! It poured typical pitch black body with medium sized head. Wonderful roasted malt aroma, straightforward with coffee, some fine cocoa, real chocolate, touched with burnt sugar. Sweetish flavor, of course the same - roasted malt, coffee and cocoa being dominating and going towards bitter at first then again blended with the secondary sweetness that is prolonged well into its long finish. Marko and I picked some tobacco as well there. Full bodied, creamy on palate. Almost chewable, really tasty imperial stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget enjoyed at home
Pours dark, black in glass, big tanned head. Smells of coffee, roasted malts, toast and grain. Medium sweet, alot of cocoa and coffee notes, roast and toast. Insanely smooth mouthfeel, it really feels like an excuisite beer. Medium bitter finish with earthy hops. The beer starts off OK, but the flavor and mouthfeel takes up several levels. A very nice IS from Dugges

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Inch-thick beige sticky head, good retention, leaves some permanent lacing. Black colour. Impressive aroma of roasted malt, wood, smoked meat, cortado. Velvety-smooth mouthfeel, full body, soft carbonation. Very well-balanced taste where a solid sweetness matches a woody bitterness perfectly. Lingering malty-bitter aftertaste. A remarkable stout.
