Not a lot on the nose however, very burnt flavor extremely bitter. Solid imperial stout. Recommend it for sure!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle@home, from WineSpot, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong slightly bitter but smooth aroma of coffee and licorice. Pitch black color with minimal beige head. Strong bit bitter taste of coffee, licorice and slightly roasted malts. A hint of raisin. Medium balanced. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with roasted malts and licorice. Strong/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall not as smooth as the aroma promised, also the body could be stronger. Other vice nice high quality though ordinary IS.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a half finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is rich chocolate, caramel and milk.
The taste is bitter chocolate and coffee to start, mildly sweet middle and finishes bitter with the alcohol heat lingering. An aggressive profile.
The texture is thick.
It smells great, and the big flavors make this a sipper.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Svart. Høyt pent mokkafarget skum som daler salte. Litt lacing. Herlig aroma av lakris og sherry. Oljeaktig munnfølelse. Smaken sjokolade - men blir for syrlig & tørr. Ettersmak av kaffe.

Black with tan head. Roast, spice, floral, banana bread and red berries. Sweet, dry and chocolate milkshake finish. Overall: The title is poetic, and so is the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is licorice, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, sweet malt. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured thick. Taste is roasted malt, licorice, finishes a touch sour for some reason, then coffee and chocolate, smoke. Mouthfeel is medium body, medium carbonation which isn?t that great. Overall, a little disappointing, considering their other stout selection.

Det är nog sympati snarare än besvikelse som känns när något så välgjort och vågat faller på obalanserade smaker. Jag hoppas nånstans att det är mina smaklökar det är fel på den här gången.

Dark black color with medium brown chocolate milk colored head and little oily lacing. Aroma is sharp with deep fruits, rum, raisins, and fudge. Flavor has rich dark chocolate, creamy smooth, cocoa, roasted malts, and a slightly bitter bite. Mouthfeel is a bit oily, with tingling alcohol presence. Very good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours black, brown head, good lacing. Aroma is cereal, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, some coffee, licorice, slight booziness. Finish is quite bitter, body is full, slightly creamy and smokey. This one might benefit from sitting in a temperature controlled hotel room in New York City until Christmas Eve to mellow out/come together. Still good, though.
