A fine companion to end a meal or relax in front of the hearth with, this robust ale will cellar well for years. Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley this stout is extremely smooth, complex and rich in body. We recommend serving at cellar temperature. Sit back and enjoy its richness and complexity, you’re about to drink the ultimate winter warmer.

Pours a really thick black tar or activated sludge with mocca cream head, sticks nicely on the glass walls. So thick that it feels like a concentrate compared to normal water beers. Intense smell with smoky coffee. Has aromas of coffee, dark chocolate and smoke. A bit of sweetness and strong bitterness. Alcohol hiding somewhere in the back, making me feel good. Something reminds me of the wood heated sauna by the lake at my home place in Finland. Maybe similar birch smoke memories. Full bodied and complex experience, enjoyable and impressing. This really catches the essence of an well produced beer with no compromise. This isn’t my favourite compared to other imperial stouts I’ve tasted, maybe a bit too smoky to my taste. Anyway an awesome beer.

15/20 really thick syrupy, very powerful but coffee overwhelms it a little bit. It's good, I enjoyed it but it lacks some of the complexities of other imperial stouts. Far away from the quality of KBS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

delnoche (505) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - OCT 16, 2016
12fl oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Opaque with a small brown cap. Aroma is raisins and alcohol. Flavor is strong roasted malt, dark fruits, alcohol burn. This beer is thick enough to chew. Long lasting, deeply bitter finish. Leaves your mouth sticky. This is a slow drinker. Excellent dessert beer that would be perfect on a cold winter night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
