Shared 355 ml bottle. Poured pitch black with a minimal tan head. Texture is slick and oily. Pleasant nose with coffee, caramel, chocolates and some liquorice. Taste is nicely balanced with sweet malts, molasses, coffee and chocolate.

12oz in Seattle. The old classic, I canít believe Iíve forgotten to rate it. Nice to revisit the base beer for so many nice variations. Motor oil pour with gorgeous, intriguing deep brown foam head. Deep milk chocolate aroma, some dry coffee and smooth milk chocolate body. Thick, creamy, but with a good sharpness, bitter and dry, at the end. Still great!

One of my first imperials and at the same time my introductory beer to craft brewing. A good one, but many other delicious yetiís as well.

A 4 year old and a fresh bottle tested side by side:
25.01.2014, 4 year old 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich and sweet, dark malts, rich velvety chocolate pudding, licorice, dark sugar, hints of coffee. Taste is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, slightly sour-ish coffee, licorice, dark sugar, cocoa, grass, burnt caramel, butterscotch. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Very nice.
25.01.2014, fresh 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich and slightly sweet, dark malts, rich espresso, licorice, dark sugar, hops, cocoa, grass. Taste is lots of burnt notes, dark malts, burnt coffee, ashtray, burnt caramel, dark sugar, licorice, chocolate. Longlasting bitterness, dry burnt mouthfeel. Very nice even as a fresh bottle, compared to many other imperial stouts that really needs some aging to come to itís best.

355ml bottle from some systembolaget in Stockholm brought by a friend. Very dark color with a thin brown lovely head. Very nice! Body is somewhat oily, low carbonation, lovely. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted, dried fruits. Beautifully balanced in every sense. Lovely.

Coffee, cocoa, and nuts in the aroma. Strong mocha flavor with some raisins and molasses. Lots of roast coffee bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Really nice big stout.

Awesome. Terrific 2-finger head, nice lacing indicative of the outstanding creaminess to come. Rich very dark color. Wonderful aroma of malt and caramel. Paired with spicy tuna sushi. Highly recommended.

Amazing beer. Very dark and heavily roasted body, but yet with a fresh touch of fruity hops. Great.
