Delt med Theis på Ølbaren. Kulsort farve lyst beige skum som var kæmpe stort.
Meget tyktflydende at hælde op. Choko, kaffe, tørrede frugter sødt maltet og god humle i duft og smag. "amerikaner duft" som jeg kalder det. Fylder godt og har en god humlet eftersmag.

A very intense and thrilling beer. When poured into a glass, the color is intimidating. The head stays for a very long time and resembles a root beer float. The chocolate flavor and heaviness of this beer will make even the fastest beer drinker slow down in appreciation. Definitely a repeat.

Wicked sweet beer. Looks like chocolate syrup in a big bottle, and it’s not far off. Split a bottle of this for good times.

Pours thick with a dark head. Smells of mainly caramel over chocolate and coffee. Very smooth feel, impossible to tell alcohol percentage. Roasted flavor with hints of taste matching the aroma with very hoppy finish.

Black coloured beer with fluffy brown head on top. Aroma is generous, slight sweet with caramel and fruit touches but also with tons of coffee and black chocolate. The taste is powerfull but not overpowering. It is rich, mild, elegant-fruity and has a tasteful and overwhelming caracter of burned malts and coffee. A rich, smooth and tastefull beer.

Gigantic head tan in color leaving nice lacing. The stout is opaque black. Sweet rich smell of malts and hops. Very straight forward roasty flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. Smooth on the tongue that turns to a nice bitter afterfinish. Nice!

Just a fantastic Imperial Stout. Great dark amber head, impenetrable brown color. the 9.5% alcohol deftly balanced. Nice kick of hops at the end. In my book only bested by the Oak Aged Yeti.

Thanks Secret Santa for this one--deep black pour with malty chocolate aroma and molasses balanced by rich piney hops, less burnt roastiness than I expected, this is pretty easy and pleasant to sip, and doesn’t taste like 9.5%.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle from Picadilly in Champaign, IL
Pours dark brown, almost black with a huge brown head. Soft carbonation and oily mouthfeel. Aroma of coffee grounds, black patent malt, dark chocolate, and at warmer temps...alcohol. Nicely blended flavors of coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and molasses. Semi dry, mildly hoppy, and chalky finish. This is a fine example of an Imperial Stout. Better than the OA Yeti.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured black with thick brown lasting head. Aroma of malt, with piney notes. Complex and well balanced flavour, notes of chocolate, coffee, malt and caramel. Hoppy finish without being too hoppy. A fine example of the imperial stout.
