COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En "Imperial Stout" med potens. Svart som natten och stark som synden, framkallar den kraftiga känslor och värmer hjärtan. Kan med fördel användas för att bota kallt sinnelag. Öltypen har "testats kliniskt" i Ryssland sedan Katarina den storas tid.

Franzen (323) - SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
Very rosted and burnt aroma. Particulary burnt toast is present with notes of coffe and smokieness
Pitch black, beige head
Taste is full of good roastiness, burnt toast, creamy nuttiness, liquorice and coffee and some peaty smokieness
Full body, average carbonation pretty dry
Fantastic imperial stout with a focus on roastiness instead of malty sweetness. I had forgotten how good it was

hawthorne00 (2433) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle. Gloopy pour. Are there going to be snot-like chunks at the bottom of the glass? - unhappily yes, maybe kept too cold too long. Black with a small tan head that never quite disappears. Aroma of (good) dark chocolate, vanilla, some berries, other spices. Silky, low carbonation. Very sweet with chocolate, some molasses and coffee. Roasted flavours creep up through the sweetness into firm bitterness with some hard spices (anise) and a little warmth at the end.

Zer0 (1127) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Draught at Beertemple, Amsterdam. Pours dark brown with a lacy brown head. Aroma is big roast, soy sauce and some smoke. Taste is on the bitter side, moderate sweet. Full bodied, pretty good.

JulienHuxley (3071) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
On tap at BeerTemple. Black brown pour, tenacious tan foam. Aroma is quite smoky, something a bit soy sauce like, definitely umami. Taste is roasty, umami, almost meaty, a touch smoky. Palate is medium bodied, pretty dry, good carbonation. Nice original Is.

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Brownish-black pour with a medium khaki head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium to full body with a roasty character and flavors of espresso, malt and dark chocolate. The finish is sweet with a charred malt and mocha aftertaste. Good beer all around.

PotjeBier (1693) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2014
Tap @ Beer Temple. Very dark color, but not quite black & opaque. Beige head. Aroma’s: hard roasted malts, ground coffee, some mocha, also a bit of fruit retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, hard roasted malts, hints of fruity sourness. Medium bodied (expected fuller). Finishes burnt, light ashy, with a light bitterness.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika. Clear, cola coloured body, sediments to the last pour. Low, patchy surface, not much lace. Roasted malts and herbal hops on the nose. Bittersweet liquorice and dark malty flavours leading to a roasted ending. Oily palate. Near full bodied. Lovely, smooth sipper (hotel room, Oslo 13.02.2014)

7/II/14 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: VI/2013 (2014-181) Thanks to Nisse666 for the trade!

Black beer, big bubbled beige to brown irregular head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: quite some alcohol, bit peaty I’d swear, coffee, dark chocolate, bit dusty, caramel. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: pretty sweet, sugary, mocha, chocolate, caramel, some dried fruits, little sourish. Aftertaste: lots of dark chocolate, vanilla, suble notes of coffee, bitter hops, burnt toast. In the end I got some weird gelatine like chunks from the last part of the bottle, that melt away in my mouth. Dafuq is this? It’s yucky and gross, but I’m willing to oversee it, since the expiration date has been exceeded.

Habanero (2619) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2014
Tap. Pours deep brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, chocoklate. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes. Full bodied, oily text and soft CO2. A delicious impy.
