Color black, was unable to pour a top. Taste of roast, tar, rubber, chocolate, all the black bits and the sweet side of the coffee soon takes hold. The skunky coffee-feel overpoweres toward the very last mouthfuls and the idea of its origin becomes clear. Still a pleasant experience and worth another bottle.

330 ml bottle with a new label, brewed at Lervig. Deep dark brown body with a small tan head. Smells like coffee and luxury. Very smooth and oily mouthfeel. Rich and decadent taste of coffee and deep roast. The alcohol is lost in this rich mixture of tastes, only its warmth remains. Great, splendid!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lervig version. Very oat-y aroma, some coffee and chocolate. Huge malt present. Maybe some tiny hints of maple? Black, brown head, looks beautiful as the style should. Full bodied, there is lots and lots of roast and bitterness in the finish. Extreme oats again. Very good imperial stout, maybe a tad young, could use a bit more sweetness to balance the bitter finish. Very good imperial stout by the coolest man alive.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black, very small tan head, looks like coffee. Huge coffee aroma, dark chocolate and cacao, some sweet malt notes, some cereal. Amazing flavour, again huge coffee notes, thick bodied and medium carbonated. Does not have a lot of malt presence, the coffee really covers everything else up, but its good.
