n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black, beige foam. Aroma is a bit sweet and fruity with some chocolate. Flavors are burnt coffee and some liquorice, very bitter. There is some sweetness at times. Slight alcohol flavor. The finish is long, but only a one-sided bitterness; not exactly what I prefer. Smooth on the palate, but does not feel thick. Overall: an enjoyable imperial stout, but the long, bitter aftertaste takes away points from it in my book.

Aroma has some brown sugar sweetness. Flavour is also quite sweet with warming alcohol. Overall the flavour seems slightly muted but a nice burnt malt bitterness comes through.

Bottle @ BBFí12
Black, small brown head. Very disappointing beer, without much aroma, taste or body. Some coffe and chocolate notes at best. But also something distastefull.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle at ABC Den Haag. Dark mahogany pour with a thin tan head. Malty aroma but this beer is all about the malty Sorachi Ace bitterness in the flavour. The Sorachi Ace hop suits a Russian Imperial Stout much more than an IPA. A really nice beer and worth tracking down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ The 5th Danish Summer Gathering 2012, Ulfborg. Pours cloudy amber with a small white head. Heavy roasted flavor. Bitter roast and sorachi ace hops. Smooth and full bodied. Rather extreme and unrefined.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 On tap at HaandFestival 2012. Itís a black one, looking really gorgeous with its dense, tan to dark beige, fingerthick head. Roasted malts, coffee, licorice and some alcohol notes in the aroma. The flavor is roasted and sweet, with licorice, a nice hoppy bitterness and some coffee-like bitterness. Full body, warming, soft and pleasantly carbonated on the palate. A tasteful, pleasant and really lovely beer. Rating: 7-5-8-4-16-4.0. 120504

Bottle. A dark brown beer with a small, dense, light tan head. Not much impact from the hops in the aroma, itís mostly roasted malts, coffee and cocoa. The same goes for the flavor, I canít really say I sense the hops, except for the bitterness chiming in towards the end, where itís also quite evident. Doesnít matter though, itís still a fine beer, well worthy of a revisit. 120817
