4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fad: Super duft af kaffe og chokolade ovenpå en sort olieret øl. En smule vanilie kan anes. Meget blød mundfylde giver en super baggrund på denne flydende dessert øl. Dejlig dejlig.

Aroma has lots of vanilla and some mocha coffee. Surprisingly thin palate. Flavour is somewhat sweet with really well roasted malt, mocha coffee and some vanilla. Becomes rather sweet after some sips. I really like the coffee here.

Pours a pitch black colour with a small white head. Intense aroma of espresso coffee, roasted malts and some brown sugar.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration
Pours pitch black with literally no head at all. Aroma is syrupy with some roasty malts, chocolate and sweet malts. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a lot of chocolatey and licorice notes. Finish is salty with a lot of licorice notes and some sweetness. Nice, quite well balanced salty imperial stout. Coffee notes are quite well hidden, though.
