Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki
Great imperial stout without the typical roastness. A bit sweet taste has hints of vanilla and coffee. Well balanced, but palate isn’t that good.

Bottled. The aroma has roast, chocolate, moccha and vanilla. Black coloured beer with a lasting, nice beige head. The taste is bitter, bit sweet and has moccha, chocolate, roast, little coffee and some hint of dried fruits in the end. Yeah. Nice.

50cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Pitch black colour with a medium big head. Wonderful aroma with notes of malts, vanillla and coffee. Flavour is a tad bitter, but not much. Roasted malts and vanilla are the most prominant flavours. More coffee and dark chocolate.

Dark brown look with lots of bubbles and a huge brown head. Great coffee, chocolate, vanilla and bourbon aroma with lots of roasted malt. Carbonated palate, abit too much, but the flavor is great. Medium roasted bitterness and a nice balanced soft sweetness and alchohol.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Sweet aroma. Notes of vanilla and chocolate. Very sweet taste! Notes of chocolate, sweet coffee, vanilla. Small espresso like bitterness in the end. Also some mint from the clash of the sweet malts and the crisp hops. Very smooth. Its kind of sweet/watery for a 10% imperial stout.
