VsXsV (2144) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle. Opaque, deep black liquid with minimal, thick mocca head. Really small head, had to pour really slow to build it up at all. Aroma is quite roasted with notes of coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, smoke/ash, some yeasty esters, caramel and very light grassy hops. Taste is also roasted with a light sweetness and medium bitterness. Lots of ash and very dark roasted coffee. Too much black patent malt? The mouthfeel is way too light for an imperial stout. Light bodied and quite watery with low carbonation. OK imperial stout but it really lets down on some critical points: Not enough sweetness to balance the roasted notes, too light body and too low carbonation. Nice aroma though.

As it warmed up the roastedness became less aggressive and the body a bit thicker, so I upped the score a bit.
