12 oz bottle. The pour is jet black, used motor oil with a dark khaki head that falls down to a ring leaving some gold lace. The aroma is good. Heavy on roasted malt and licorice, but there is a delightful blackberry presence here. Maybe a little molasses on the back end. The flavor is definitely more based on the malts. There is a bitter licorice on the back end and then them a roasty sweetness. The mouth feel is oily, and doesn't hang around. There is a light carbonation and it's a little thin on the back end. The aftertaste is lingeringly dry and roasty. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Väldigt rostad, lite torr. Choklad, kaffe och mörka söta frukter som ger sötma. Riktigt bra imperial stout.

Ingevara (841) - SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
A stout without the usual smoothness. The usual stout flaors, but more hops and alcohol. Slightly oily. Not really my cup of ... beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a medium to full retentive tan head. Aromas of vanilla, blackberries, creamy coffee and a bit of alcohol. Flavors of dark chocolate, light coconut, heavily roasted malts, chicory, vanilla, and dry roasted malts. Smooth with dry finish. Excellent.
