4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 500ml bottle on 12/11/2012 (batch no. 413, BB 02/2017). Pours close to black with a lovely medium light tan head. Has a lovely chocolatey aroma with some woody and unusual floral notes. The flavour is sublime, with an explosion of milk chocolate, along with some caramel fudge, a with a dash of espresso, a touch of vanilla, and a hint of dark fruit. Countering is a massive roasty bitterness and big hop presence. The palate is velvety and the carbonation perhaps a shade higher than a typical for the style. Incredibly moreish and easy to drink for something that’s 10.5%. An astoundingly complex, exceptional imperial stout.

absolutely amazing Imperial Stout. Those Danish guys have good science brains that gives them extra powers to make beer, even if they don’t put Danishes in it!

Bottle. Very dark body with a steady tan head. Aroma has deep rich roast and some leather. Taste has bitter tarry roast and strong espresso. Really straightforward and uncomplex. Finish has hoppy tar and mild coffee. This tar greatly reduces drinkability. I expected this beer to actually have a character but it’s just another big bold juvenile in-your-face imperial stout that simply relies on overkill.

Typical roast concrete nose at start leading to a more Meaty furry almost bloody quality. Super easy rocky foamy Medium magnolia head. Black with gloss but some crystal like red sparkles in the high tumbler glass. Nose grows in depth in time. Full bodied but not extreme. Really coats the tongue and finishes with a very long and very dry bitterness.

Spina @ fob.
Nera con schiuma fine e persistente.
Bella corposa, mi aspettavo di più, l'ho trovata molto amara e poco incisiva.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark or black beer with a large dark beige head. Some flakes of yeast flowing in the beer. Sweetness and coffee on the nose. Medium to full body. A lovely, slightly oily texture with just right amount of crispiness from a little carbonation. Some syrup like sweetness. Medium roastiness. Some kind of red berry notes. Lots of bitterness in the after taste: grape fruit, some grass. Very balanced and beautiful beer. This has a lot of character and I really recommend trying this one.

Dark chocolate raisins, quite sweet. Dominant chocolate character and dark fruits. Long lasting bitterness, no trace of alcohol. Good mouthfeel with light carbonation.

Bottle. Aroma: Coffee, roasty, rum. Look: Thick black liquid. Medium head and medium carbonation. Taste: Lots of chocolate and a touch of coffee. Roasty! A bit scratchy the first few seconds, but turns into a sweet vanilla chocolate flavor. You can sense a bit of rum there aswell.
