3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at systembolaget in Uppsala sometime in the middle of June, 2011. Overall, this is a very flavorful stout and one that I will certainly buy again.
Pours with a deep, dark brown color and a medium-sized beige head. The lacing is decent, but Iíve seen far better.
The aroma is powerful: vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt malts and a hint of alcohol. It smells like a desert in a bottle.
The mouth feel is creamy, although less so than expected. The is taste is bitter sweet: vanilla galore, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans and booze. Wonderful with desert.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Soft dookie indeed. Appearance is a fluffy, thick, tan head that slowly settles to a brown cover, lots of lace, and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is roast, vanilla, black patent malt, cocoa, coffee, old tree bark. Flavorís like nose, has carbonic tang against the bittersweet and vanilla up front and slowly tapers to the bittersweet flavors and some alcohol warmth at the end. Soft round body with just enough carbonation to balance. A masterpiece. Gimme some dookie!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big aroma of vanilla, cocoa, brown sugar, some booze and a strange metallic scent. Great looking thick black beer with a brown head of foam that leaves tons of lacing. Tastes more roasty than I would have imagined, the sweetness balances this out. Hints of brown sugar with a booze burn. Palate is average, judging by its looks I thought it would have been thicker. Pretty good, I will be aging a few bottles of this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Labeled as "Soft DK". Super thick & viscous black pour. Oily, black, & topped with a velvety, deep-tan head. Aroma of moderate chocolate, cookie dough, faint roast, mild milky sweetness, vanilla, perhaps some brown sugar. Flavor has lots of brown sugar, bakerís chocolate, roasted malt, & even a bit of coffee. Lighter undertones of vanilla, anise, & a very moderate fudge element. Mouth feel is a bit thinner than the thick looking pour would indicate. Overall, a pretty nice imperial stout.

4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours nice with a tight beige head that sticks for a very long time. Nose is of coca cola and something vegetal, a bit odd.
Mouthfeel is very thick. In contrast to the head it is very low carbonated.
What lacks on the nose delivers on the palate.
Lots of dark fruits, obvious salmiak. Very balanced. Very enjoyable.
