4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 Deep brown body, lght brown head small (but not so much for an Imperial Stout ) head. Chocolate milk! Also dades, cream, coffee - yes - and earth. Quite rich but not surprising. Taste is the opposite - surprisingly dry and bitter while are enough malts to give a full body. Some vanilla and wood here as well. Bit sticky in the mouth but not so much in the glass. Aftertaste brings in a salty new dimension. An interesting beer indeed. Good job by the brewer! (3,50 EUR, 33cl bottle)

from ølbutikken. Thanks for digging up this gem.
black, smooth brown head.
coffee, roasted grains, faint fruity note. dry slightly citrussy note i think from hops. Aroma is very elegant , complex and quite powerfull.
flavor is coffee, espresso, roasted malts, dryness perhaps from hops. a little licorice sweetness, complex, in this one the coffee works real well. wood notes. Great balance, great brew. Even though the ABV is "up there" it is far from getting too sweet, rather it’s pretty dry. Among the best imp. stouts i’ve had.

The Dan Journal #428. Tasted 3/7/11. 12oz bottle. Opaque with a dark brown hue. A thin khaki head. Aromas of anise and cocoa. Fudge and mild coffee. Full bodied and rather bitter. Big coffee note with both the dark roast and the acidic bitterness. Lot of dark chocolate notes and mild black licorice. Subtle peppery notes Mild maple sweetness mixed with the bitterness. Not too shabby.

Lots of roasted malts, some dark bittersweet chocolate, fresh espresso beans, but not overly coffee, just nice balance throughout. Pours black, thin head. Nice and roasty, dark bittersweet chocolate, espresso, light notes of dark fruit. Big beer, smooth, full bodied, drinkable. Nice stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille @ ACBF 2011.
Brune foncée, mousse moka.
Arôme d’espresso, malt léger avec fine couche de houblon.
En bouche, malté café/espresso un peu faible et font place à des fruits noirs. Malt me rappelle un peu du cara laissant avec le houblon une couche d’amertume au fini.
Un peu surpris par cette bière que j’attendais être un peu plus centrée sur l’espresso qui en final est pour moi un peu absent.
