COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A black, top-fermented beer with a firm brown head and a pleasant bitterness from roasted barley and chocolate malt, and from centennial, fuggles, East Kent golding and cascade hops. The bitterness is around 60 IBU. The malt bill is pale malt, cara munich, cara crystal, chocolate and a little roasted barley. The malt leaves a residual sweetness that matches the bitterness. To complete the flavour profile, the beer is aged on roasted oak chips.

Wow, this one is complex indeed. The aroma is bad, like sour milk - definitely doesn’t make you want to taste it. Nevertheless, as you get through it, you’ll find that it’s an excellent imperial stout. It’s definitely bitter and really hard to decribe, if you get the chance, pick this up, it’s not for everyone, but the complexity alone, is enough reason to try it.

JanLaursen (3064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle at Hotel Svendborg. Clear redbrownish with a small but stable beige head. Massive aroma of hard roasted malts, licorice, choco, vanilla and oak. Bittersweet, roasted flavor with a mild oaky touch, grapefruity notes and some licorice. A lactic hint in the finish. Solid body, soft carbonation.

laiti (5636) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2012
50 cl bottle. BBE 01.11.12, rated on 04.09.2012
Aroma has chocolate, licorice and coffee. Flavour is somewhat tart with berries, slightly salty licorice and lots of coffee in the aftertaste. Quite thin for an Imperial Stout.

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a dark brown colour with a beigeish head. Aroma of roasted malts, syrup, nuts and chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, chocolate, salty licorice, some vanilla, nuts, harsh bitterness and some berries. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a rough, malty, bitter finish. Good.

50 cl bottle @ TimoA.
Pours dark ruby red color with small off-white head. Aroma of smoke, malts, caramel, dark berries, dry chocolate and liquorice. Flavor of liquorice, dark toasted malts, dark berries, caramel and sugar. Mild bitter palate with a dry chocolate finish. Good but a bit too strong on the berry notes.

Countbeer (4397) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle: Thanks to Fonefan: Vast medium creamy light tan head, disappears slow, on top of a deep dark brown colored beer. Smell is a delicious soft smell of vanilla, coffee, light sweet balanced dark fruit, cocos, hint of alcohol. Really good smell! Taste is very well balanced, you taste the oak and vanilla of the chips, soft and smooth: hint of coffee, light roasted malts, roasted herbs, some darker fruits, light bitter, smooth. Aftertaste of roasted herbs, light coffee and a hint of vanilla. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. Delicious beer, soft, smooth, lovely smell and well balanced.

JorisPPattyn (7889) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2011
Small yellow-beige, shortlived head over near-black beer. Warm, sweet-smelling roasted notes, faintly smoked, roasted nuts in sugarsyrup, and a hint at whisky. And quite some coffee, smelt from a distance. Burnt, roasted, but with a very sweet streak; liquorice, treacle syrup and again ending on sweet alcohol, Bourbon- or whisky-like. Not very thick, certainly not for the style. Slight oilyness, and alcoholwarming. Nice stout - txs J. & C. ! ; but I’m very surprised to learn it hasn’t beer whiskyvat-lagered - it tastes and smells like.
