Bottle. Pours pitch black with a finger thick creamy and brown head. Aroma is sweet with chocolate and lactose, as well as some burned malts. Very balanced, and never too sweet. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with chocolate and molasses, as well as tar, leather, dark fruits and wood. Nice sweet finish.

’Motor oil pour, then the darkest tan head I have ever seen. O’boy milk chocolate aroma, vanilla. On the other hand, the flavour and aroma is all additives. Pleasant, but I admire brewing more than blending.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a majestic pitch black body crowned with a large, light caramel-colored creamy and long-lasting head. Nose is cocoa, dark chocolate, lactic creamy notes, coffee and hints of black currants and alcohol. Taste is cocoa and dark chocolate in the front, then milky licorice, dark berries, vanilla and hints of wood and leather come later. Loads of complexity. Lingering cocoa finish. Full, thick body with a lovely creamy mouthfeel - now this is what puts the "imperial" in "stout"! Very impressive from Fanø, and by far the best beer I’ve had from them so far.

Taste is rich and sweet, dark malts, licorice, dark sugar, coffee, dark fruits, chocolate, caramel, grass, alcohol, tar. Longlasting bitterness, sirupy sticky mouthfeel. Surprisingly little chocolate in this one when I expected SO much, but instead lots of licorice. Still, this is lovely stuff, will definately put a bottle or two in my cellar for aging.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours jet black with a dense brown head that builds up, it just looks exquisite. Smells of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, earthy hops. Heavy sweet, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts again, fantastic full bodied, coffee and chocolate flavors are very nice. Medium bitter finish, slick oily texture, fantastic mouthfeel. What a fantastic brew, i didn’t expect it to be that good. Exquisite
