Poured from bottle into a snifter. Aroma was of powdered cocoa, very nice. Appearance was black brown allowing no light to pass through it. Had a small tan head that dissipated quickly. Taste compared with aroma was dissapointing. Flavor is dry dark chocolate. It has a strong dark chocolate bitterness to it. Palate was not as viscous as I was expecting and carbonation was weak. Overall it is ok and I’d pass on this in future. Many much better imperial stouts out there.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque dark brown with a good brown head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is woody bitter chocolate syrup that turns sweeter as it moves through the palate, then adds bitter again in a lingering warm finish. Thick and sticky, full bodied, best for sipping.

Kraftig i smagen, en del skum. Behagelig men også kraftig eftersmag.
Let røg og kaffe smag.

Julie says it is nice a little bitter hoppy but not a full hop exotic. Julie gives a 3.2

Coffee, chocolate, licorice, nuts and a hint of soy sauce in the aroma. Almost black with a red tint, tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really nice Imperial Stout, really rich in flavour, full, creamy body and well hidden alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a tasting, thanks DSG, smallish head, dark brown colour, aroma of toasted nuts and peanuts and roasted coffee,flavour of coffee, dark chocolate and some muddy and liquor hints.
Quite easy but a bit too one dimensional.
