4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drucken på Nya Tröls. Mer en Imperial stout ön svart DIPA enligt mig. Och en riktigt bra sådan. Rund, mjuk fyllig och fullpumpad med smaker som hänger väl samman. Förvånande lite humle och beska. Snarare massor av rostad malt med kaffe och ckoklad och lite sötare chokladkola. Mycket gott.

Bottle at Sorbon. Opaque, black liquid with mahogany edges and medium tab head. Aroma of coffee, grapefruit, chocolate, citrus, roasted malt, pumpernickel and caramel. Hoppier than most imp stouts. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with notes of fresh ground coffee, ash, smoke and american hops. Really pleasant taste. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Maybe a bit thin. Really enjoyed this one.

Bottle from Bishops Arms in Örebro. It had a fruity smell with coffee, dark malts and chocolate. Light smokiness but besides that similar taste as smell. There was something weird with this one but I couldn’t put my finger on it, something with the fruitiness.

Bottle @ Kaisla. Black, opaque with beautiful, lasting brown head. Aroma: sweet roasted malts, citrus and floral notes. Flavor is multilayered with nice bitter notes. Is it a bit too sweet? Palate lasts and lasts...
A great one!

On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is toasty with some cocoa powder. The flavor is dry burnt toast and coffee. A lot like my standard breakfast. Some dark chocolate underneath as well. It has a strong roasted/bitter finish. Pretty nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Depp black body and big brown head on top. Very nice. Rich but not overdone aroma with chocolate, cake, hint of smoke, some ginger and a burned caramel base. No alcohol and the hops are only in a supporting role here. Smooth body, tat bit oily. Warming feel from the alcohol even though the pleasant bitter taste has no such thing in it. Roasted coffee beans here, with a coffee bitterness coming in at the end. Powerfull and well brewed. Works well for me as an imperial stout, having a great natural malty sweetness balanced by that coffee-like bitterness. Nice. (33cl bottle, bit expensive)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with less than a finger of tan head. Smell is a lot of roasty and caramel notes, bit of chocolate, very pleasing. Taste is a lot of the rich, robust, roasty character, but loses some of the other smells, it’s drowned out by boozieness. Still a bit of chocolate and caramel, but a bit overpowering. Silky smooth, but a sipper. Pretty good Impy Stout, but has some room for improvement.
