COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Double" (imperial) wheat stout.
This imperial really strikes back. From a strange country far, far away, comes the only Imperial Wheat Stout in the known universe. Once again, the ’Hand’ brewery - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - boldly goes where no brewery has gone before.

Bottle 50cl, Batch 103. Thick brown head. Aroma has roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice. Taste is bitter and heavy sweet. Full body with oily texture and long finish with dark chocolate. Very nice!

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
Svart öl med ljusbrunt skum. Rostade toner av kaffe och mörk choklad. Samma i smaken tillsammans med lakrits. Hittar som många nadra inte veten. Kanske bidrar den till torrheten och avsaknaden av maltighet? Hur som helst en god öl.

A beer with lots of taste, strong and heavy. Great dark chocolate flovours, you can barely feel alcohol.

dreamflower (566) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Black with caramel coloured head. Deep smokey aroma and almost like a chocolate chipotle kind of flavour.

A tasty double imperial stout! A heavy beer with enough force and balance, but I’d like to know: where is the fucking wheat? Unrecognizable for me! In any case, another highly recommended brew of that awesome Norway brewery command: Good save HaandBryggeriet! ;)

jaghana (3725) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle 50cl, kindly shared by Dominique (Bièrerie). A dark beer with copper head, nose is very nice on grain, dark chocolate and coffee. Aroma is on dark coffee, less creamy than expected by the nose, relatively dry, light licorice, dark chocolate, some bitterness, smoked notes. Good imperial stout but I did not get the wheat dimension. Some astringency at the finish, quite alcoholic.

NikkTwist (1529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Pitch black pour. Head disappeared very quickly. Not much aroma. Liquid smoke. Coffee grounds. Charcoal. A deep dark roast. Slight sour funk. Smooth finish despite the intense burnt flavors. Minimal fruit. Some coffee/chocolate but mostly just ashy goodness. Wonderful stuff.
