This imperial stout was very drinkable.Aromas revealed light vanilla and coffee with light grapes and chocolate. The taste was rich with roasted malts and fresh coffee, while undertones of prune, cherries and hops were delicate and balancing. Thanks to OmegaX for this much-enjoyed brew.

Snifter pour. Nose is slight roast, lighter fluid, molasses, charcoal, some light chocolate and some alcohol. Pour is dark brown with a khaki head. Overall, I got a lot of port wine qualities with some roasted coffee and chocolate qualities. Similar to a mocha brownie. Very rich and intense brew. Boozy too. Not bad at all. I’d like to age one of these babies.

Smells like a delicious imperial. Palate is the weak spot. Thin and boring. Taste is big...deep and dark roasted malts. Good imperial. Not spectacular. Sweden...check.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a small tan head that quickly recedes. Big aroma of roasted malts, rich coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is roastiness with loads of rich cocoa, along with a subtle milk chocolate note and a hint of dark fruit and a touch of smoke. Mouthfeel had prickley carbonation, full body, and a kind of a burnt dry slightly bitter finish.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating from note. Bottle. Almost no aroma, but a hint of caramel. Beautiful black beer, though, with a thick golden head which disappears after a short while. Taste is a bit surprise when the beer had no aroma (nuts and sweet caramel), but still nothing extraordinary. A little too bitter in the end.
