A - Served a jet black color with a finger of frothy tan-brown head atop. The head hangs around for a while before leaving behind lots of lacing. S - Rich deep roasted caramel and chocolate malts. There is also a touch of sweet milk and roasted coffee as well. T - Starts off with lots of deep roasted caramel flavor and some coffee. Though the middle some more roasted flavors and a bit of milk sweetness and some chocolate flavor comes thorough. The finish is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee with a touch of booze that lingers. M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels smooth and a touch creamy. he finish is sweet with some roasted and chocolate flavors and a bit of warming from the alcohol. D - Very drinkable. Very nice balance of roasted, sweet, and chocolate flavors throughout. The beer is also really rich and complex.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 7, 2011
Pours motor oil thick with a small collar of brown head. Aroma has intense salmiac liquorice, caramel, melted dark chocolate, sweetness from the malts, coffee, roasted nuts, raisins, a hint of alcohol, muskat nød, charcoal and tar. Nice balance. Taste has roasted malts all over the place, tarry, coffee, the roast makes it almost peppery in intensity, dark chocolate and a bit of caramel sweetness, some alcohol which helps give the pepper. Heavy oily palate, not much carbonation. Not the best imperial stout to cross my palate.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with s small tan head. Aroma has intense roast notes, some dark chocolate, coffee, charcoal, burnt notes, dark fruit and liqourice. The flavor is again mostly on the intense roasty side with lots of burnt and charcoaly notes, I also get the coffee, dark fruit and liqourice. The body is full with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Imperial Stout, but not as good as its hyped up to be.
