3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bit rosty, coffee and star anis in the aroma, but not overwhelming. Apperarance typical for the style with fine and not to much foam. The taste is good but not intense and doesn’t last that long. Not to sweet. Lacks volume and creamy palate, but fine carbonation.
Conclusively a good beer, but not the best Imperial stout I have tasted.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mørk brun med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter salmiakk, kaffe, mørke frukter og svisker. Middels + i fylde. Ganske bitter til å være stout. Kaffe, alkohol og noe fruktig sødme.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely nougat colored foam. Estimates deep aroma of chocolate malt. This stoutehas a creamy texture and taste has clearly influenced by dark chocolate, a little fig and prune and a hoppy bitterness that brings together its nuances with long aftertaste. It is a beautiful and tasty stout, which finally may not be enjoyed cold. My expectations were probably not entirely met, but I buy it certainly like again because it has great enjoyment value and potientale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown nearly black body. Medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and dried fruits. Flavour is simpler, sweet and roasted malt. Chocolate and coffee notes. The bitterness is felth early and stays for the fairly long finish full of roasted malt. A good stout well balanced event if I would have like to taste more complex as the nose.
