330 ml bottle. Dark as midnight, tan head. Aroma is a bit sweet and chocolatey. Taste is creamy and full, chocolate and coffee is dominating.

Black with a two finger high foam. Milk chocolate, dark bread, vanilla, licorice, coffe, nuts, dried fruit and rosted malt. Round and creamy mouthfeel. Nice!

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Det här var bra, riktigt bra. Svart som natten med en lite tam och intetsägande doft, smaken är desto bättre med mycket rostade toner och ett försiktigt tilltag av vanilj. Slutsats; komplex och riktigt bra öl.

NordicV (1090) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Svrt öl med ett livligt ljusbrunt skum. Doft av rostad malt och mörk ckoklad. Samma kommer igen i smaken. Lätt gräddig munkänsla. Balanserad, men lite lätt för att vara en Imperial Stout.

Ktwse (1836) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2013
Pours black with a surprisingly big tan head (the ABV, I suppose). Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, leather, hints of soy, german sausage and dark chocolate. Taste is mild and balanced, initially slightly sweet but with a touch of bitterness coming through at the end. Body is medium and light creamy with fairly low carbonation. A nicely balanced imperial stout, although I prefer mine a bit more extreme.

Black with a thin tan head. Fruity apple aroma. Smooth bit winey and sweet. Bit of roast bitter on the finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imaena (1791) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle. This is a tart impy with a thin body and relatively flat flavor profile. While I would take it over a pale lager any day its not worth the $ given other products on the market.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Almost a finger of tan head. Pitch black body. Smell is roasted malt, charred wood and molasses. Nice and bold. The taste is roasted malt with a touch of sweetness and a dry bitter finish. Pretty good. The body was a little light and fizzy for an imperial stout. A well built ale.

rougeau13 (1945) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Black. Very slight tan head. Molasses, roast, and licorice aroma. Sweet and roasty taste. Medium body. Good, but not great.

11.2 oz. bottle- Pours almost pitch black with a tan head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is chocolate malt, alcohol, molasses. The taste is very European, it has a mineral quality to it, roasted chocolate malt, that well water is intense, imparting a very unique taste. Body is medium, which is thinner than usual for the style, carbonation is medium high, which is also unusual. Overall I can see why people have rated this lower than other impy stouts, I just disagree with them! This is interesting, different, not thick as molasses, but smooth, drinkable, and very good. If it isn’t oak aged in some type of bourbon or wine or something, and amped up to 12%, some raters think it doesn’t deserve a good rating, they are idiots!
