Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head, oily. Starts strong, intense malty, quite roasty. Fine notes of coffee and bitter chocolate. Finish warming, modest alcoholic. Good Imperial Stout.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2011
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 8 Oct 2011) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, espresso, vanilla and oak wood. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong black coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, hints of Islay whisky and lots of wood character. Full body, fairly sweet with a generous coffee bitterness in a long, lingering finish with hints of whisky. Slightly oily texture, excellently balanced. Lovely beer!

Bottle. Pours black. Tan head. Nose of chocolate, oak, peat and roasted dark malts. Taste is a big step down - way too much whiskey barrel. Tastes mostly like whiskey with charred oak, chocolate and ash. Medium body.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, raisins and woody sweet bourbon aroma. Medium sweet roasted malt flavor with a medium sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a complex good beer.
