4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A really nice change up to a normal imperial stout. Huge beer but the wheat makes it amazingly smooth. Roasted malts and licorice in the nose. The same in the taste along with a nice bitter coffee finish. The best part is the oily smooth mouthfeel that you just can’t get enough of in a beer this big.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
kindly given by jaghana (7/14), thanks a lot; bb 2/2016 and brewed 2 years and 8 months ago; more weizendoppelbock than imp stout nose: dried, sweet pears, some honey, and, presumably due to age, a strong Red Martini centre on dense whafts of butterscotch. Age also seems to have somewhat disintegrated this Wheat Stout’s taste components. Result: the impression of drinking some heavier white wine like Muscadet after having eaten bitter chocolate and a bit of licorice. Weak coffee roast aftertaste; not bad, though. A lot of alcohol heat. Winelike. Worth a younger revisit.

Bottle. Pitch black in colour, small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and lots of cherries and plums. Softly carbonated, very smooth. Full bodied, rather sweet in the finish. Very good.

kran w jabeerwocky. ciemne z mierna piana, w aromatach raczej delikane ale bardzo fajnie slodkawe: owoce ciemne + jakas slodycz a la lukrecja czy cos w ten desen, ciezkie do zdefiniowania ale fajne. do tego w tle kakao, moze jakas kawa z mlekiem (??? skad tu kawa z mlekiem?). smaku delikatniejsze jeszcze niz w aromacie, ale analogiczne do aromatow. raczej w strone wodnista niz pelna. dobre. i nic ponad to.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nice and very perfect tan foam that rises to their Dark Force, which also bears the subtitle Double Extreme Imperial Wheat Stout. Clear notes of wheat malt rises from the glass and mixes deliciously with hints of coffee. Tastes deep and long coffee / mocha with English licorice. Wheat malt adds a comfortable sweetness and freshness which is in an almost too perfect relief to the aforementioned heavier tasting notes.

Imperial stout brewed with wheat. Makes for a very interesting combination. The wheat seems to have contributed in a good way to the texture of the beer. Overall, dark, roasty, tasty.
