UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 (Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 25 Jan 2013) Black colour with brief, brown head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee and liquorice. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, cacao, espresso, vanilla and a full-flavoured finish with a certain sweetness and a generous roasted bitterness. Full body, with some sweetness. Quite well balanced and very tasty. Very nice. Rerate: (Bottle, 30 June 2013) Black colour with huge, frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, strong sweet espresso, liquorice, soy sauce, molasses and caramel. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, liquorice, soy sauce, hints of bourbon, burnt sugar (or molasses) and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. A certain alcohol glow coming through. Full body, quite sweet. Quite powerful and very nice. Same figures as in original rating.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24-12-2014, schenkt als stroperig olie, zwart met minimale bruine kraag. Aroma is volmoutig, zoet, chocolade en alcohol en erg lekker. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, matig gefruit, mooie volle chocolade op redelijke gebrande en geroosterde mouten koffie, body is redelijk, maar textuur is eigenlijk wat aan de te dunne kant voor zo’n bier. is de basis is dit gewoon een prima stout, echter die 10% is wel gevaarlijk want valt eigenlijk niet op in dit bier. Lekker !

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Black. Deep chocolate aroma with hints of vanilla pods. A little salty, soft bitterness, rich taste. Full body, syrupy texture, long, lingering cocoa finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma of molasses, leather, soil, booze, roast, some coffee and dark chocolate. Smells great. Looks great too; pitch black with a tiny head of light brown foam that clings on to the glass. Taste is soy sauce, sharp hops, heavy roast, dark coffee and smoke. Warming booze heat and a slight red wine flavor in the aftertaste. Very heavy handed flavor; I’m looking forward to the bottle I am aging. Palate is smooth but a little light for the style. Overall good; ET knows how to make an Imperial Stout.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Black with a bit of brown foam. Nice big dark chocolate aroma with some cocoa and coffee. Sweet flavor with dark chocolate, roast and a bit of dark fruits. Pretty full-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pure black body sits beneath a slowly fading, creamy smooth, one inch, medium khaki head which eventually falls to a thin ring and a couple dots of lace
A festival of berries, pine needles, and grapefruit rind with dark roast coffee and smokey accents bridging into rich dark complexities of vanilla, treacle, dark caramel, and dark chocolate with a touch of alcohol spice and beef jerky on a heavy, mildly carbonated body offering a burst of spice as the residual opens, melting back to reveal balanced, extended waves of the previously mentioned components, another great imperial stout from Jeppe

Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted dark fruits, licorice. Dark with ruby reflexes and no head, only a ring. Some interesting sweetness in taste, mixed with roasty feeling, coffee and nice bitter finish. Medium body - expected a bit more. Oily texture, very soft carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Black color with small head. Looking good! Dark fruits, I think it’s like dry apricots rather than raisins or plums. Sweetness, roasted malts, and bitter chocolate. Super liquorice and well-balanced. Better than Port Brewing’s Santa’s Little Helper which I had just before. A very good one.
