3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep dark as night with such little head it only forms at the edges of the glass. Aromas of sweet milk chocolate. Tastes of creamy chocolate, little hop, faint soy on the backend and lots of alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel with a decent linger and evolving character. Overall a great beer and will work well with these vanilla cookies I just bought. Yummy!

On tap. Pours black with a nice brown head. Not much lacing though. Strong aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is very good - of hard roasted malt and coffee, but also chocolate, molasses and a hint of liquorice. Full-ish body and medium carbonation. Very good. Nothing super special but it's solid and precisely what I like. My first Swedish beer (I think) and so far it's very promising. :-)

Bottle @ dEnk, thanks! Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is roasty, creamy, spicy, cognac and Haagse hopjes. Flavor is bitter, brandy, roasted and somewhat boozy. Nice and full bodied.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Thick oily black pour with creamy off white head, aroma brought notes of slight ash, roast, nice dark fruits, hints of a nice acidic coffee bean, hints of anise as well, touch of cocoa. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, dark chocolate, and thick roasted malt into some ash, earth, slight anise, finishing bitter, dry.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
For a imperial stout the aroma is a bit too subtle. Nothing really stands out in this stout but it?s still a solid beer. At the price I would at The moment much rather have Evil Twins "Christmas eve in a New York..." - imperial stout that is on offer here in Sweden as a Christmas beer. Both cost around 4,5 $. The Evil Twin is much more luxurious and simply on another level.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Opaque black body. Thin oily beige head. Rather still, not much carbonation. Big coffee chocolate flavors. A touch watery, with some burnt black coffee charred tastes. A little heat. Pretty good, maybe not so well aged on my part.
