A surprisingly light weight imperial stout that caught me off guard with its nimbleness. It’s delicious in a low-key way, with nice hints of chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. Marginally dry and sweet on the finish. Enjoyed on tap.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 very strong alcohol aroma. Robust and equilibrated. Thick texture and long finish. Outstanding Imperial Stout overall.

Bottle. This is one of those beers that makes your eyes water; aromatic whiffs as strong as cascades of caramel and toffee, taste heavenly rich yet, and this is fantastic, dry. The taste lasts and lasts. And lasts. I will try this again when I have the chance!

Perfect beer. Chocolate and vanilla, and a very long finish. Perfectly balanced

Denne øl har et mørkt udseende med et svagt hvidt skum. Øllen smager af chokolade og lakrids, hvilket giver den en cremet fornemmelse og smag. Lav karbonering.

HKdIPA (567) - HONG KONG - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home, and had taste on tap too (which may have been better). Thick black pour with persistent thin tan head. Aroma is rich dark fruit stout - booze too. But with a hint of something different - some herbal hops. Taste follows, less nuanced in bottle than on tap mah e. Some dark fruit, big bitterness, maybe even sourness. Very solid. More interesting, and not as heavy or sweet as I might've thought. Also not cheesy "Christmas" spices, more herbal or vegetal in a good way.

CacheManyHose (499) - HONG KONG - DEC 18, 2015
Drank with Matt after the Vectr Xmas party. Pitch black, medium dark beige creamy head with significant bubbles, spotty legs. Smells of very roasty cereal dark malt, medium plum and stone fruit, medium herbal hop, booze, faint dark soy sauce. Like the creamy roastiness. Taste is quite bitter, moderate spice, very faint coffee and citrus, kind of boring compared to the nose. Body is spicy, bitter, medium to thick.

RCx240 (177) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
Deep black, foamy tan head. Moderate retention, spotty lacing. Aroma of licorice, nutmeg, gingerbread. Taste is sweet, gingerbread, molasses, nutmeg. Finishes with a bit of heat, not an abrupt finish but it doesn’t really longer. Was expecting a standard imperial stout, but was pleasantly surprised. Very good.

IPAgutten79 (842) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2015
Helt svart med lavt brunt skum. Aroma av kaffe, kakao, røstet malt og lakris. Smaken er et deilig sammensurium av kaffe og mørk sjokolade. Antydninger til vanilje i bakgrunnen. Søt, før den blir ganske så kaffebitter i ettersmaken. Tykk konsistens, lite/passe karbonert.
