Delt stor flaske . Svært kropp med lavt brunt skum. Deilig røstet rosin og noter av vanilje. Kaffi og søt lakris tilkommer i munnen. Kraftige smaker. Søtt, tykt, fyldig, røstet og deilig.

Pours a velvety black with light head in a nice toffee brown.
Lots of bourbon on the nose with expected oaty malt notes.
Bourbon again on the palate with low effervescence. Frankly I expected to get some more here, but this brew is more imperial than oatmeal stout.

Draft at the Giant Eagle cafe in Pittsburgh. This was an almost perfect combination of everything that is right about proper brewing. Ready for the next one...

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that left good lacing. The aroma was strong anise, chocolate, vanilla, toasty malts and almost coffee. The flavor was intense with a bitter presence, anise, chocolate, wood, roasty malts, port wine and quite a bit of booziness. Long finish of alcohol, anise, wood, roasty malts and chocolate. Full body. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 8-31-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a small light brown head with a short retention, black-dark brown opaque body, some carbonation is being observed on the sides of the glass, and there is spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee, cocoa, and dark fruits. The flavor dis lightly bitter, roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee, dark fruits, and licorice. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is a very quaffable beer with a very good flavor. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

another old ass lost review on my fone from Aug 2013. Apparently I reviewed it by licking the cap. " Dark fruits, oatmeal, faint pine, plenty of roast, touch earthy". A pro’s pro review for sure.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was dark malt. The sharp thick crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt sweet mild hops coffee brown malt dark malt and breads. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Pours very dark brown with a dense soapy deep tan head. The aroma has dates, figs, cream, smooth roast and a bit of licorice. It has a medium / full body that is pretty smooth and has pretty soft carbonation. The taste starts off with the dark fruits of the aroma, anise/licorice, bitter roast and coffee. The finish has apples, licorice, minerals, medicine and a weird creaminess. Not sure what I think of this one overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, kaki head. Lace. Aroma is dark malts,some herbal hops, dark fruit/berries, molasses, raison.. booze. Same taste with some citrus in finish, syrupy, bit of yeast funk, piney herbal bitter, chocolate rich malt, dryish but smooth and syrupy, pretty bitter finish. pretty boozy, with dry alcohol in finish. Rich sweet dark cherrie berry but balanced by big bitter herbal pine. Not real big on imperal stouts but ocassionally grab one, this one is pretty good. A bit syrupy- flat but silky mouthfeel , more sweet than I like. I probably would like this more if it wasn’t an imperial but can appreciate it for it being an imperial. Fruit oatmeal desert stout.

On tap @ Great Divide Barrel Bar. Black pour with a khaki head. Ashy and heavy on the dark fruits. Pretty roasty and some dark chocolate and espresso. Sort of a burnt flavor. Kind of briney and perhaps has some olive character to it. Very acidic, in fact. Not really very good.
