33 cL bottle thanks to thewolf/dunkpigen. Pitch black with no head. Aroma is roasted malty with a mild spice note and a mild smoke accent. Flavour is smoked and hardroasted malt with a distinct dark fruity note coming through. Mild yeasty touch into the finish. Smooth yet with a little bite.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2007
At Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. A black beer with a red shine under a lazing orange-brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of elderberries, roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hard roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate, the hard roasted malt giving it a slight acidity, leading to a dry bitter finish.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Draught. Black opaque colour, small brown head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, bready and chocolateish. Flavour is very smooth coffee and milk along with roasted malts, alcohol and caramel. Wellbalanced and totally kickass! One of my definitive favourites at the SBWF 2006.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2006
[Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival] Black, rich beige head. Strong chocolate aroma. Very soft and with light bodied for an imperial stout. The restrained sweetenss along with the slim body and soft mouthfeel leaves plenty of room for the chocolatey flavours. Like a bigger milk stout. Light notes of licorice and grassy hops show up towards the finish. The best new Swedish beer I sampled at the festival.

Bottle. Pours a black color with a small creamy tan head. Roasted malty dark fruit and chocolate aroma. Roasted malty chocolate and coffee flavor with some hints of dark fruit. Roasted sweetish chocolate and coffee finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Dark mahogany color. This one as well has a light aroma, with roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, very light tobacco leaves and vanilla. Good body strength, round body, with a quite sweet caramel flavor, with notes of chocolate and roasted malt; the alcohol warms the mouth more than expected. The final is well balanced with all the flavor mix, and rhubarb candies, but gets thinner than the front. Very good.
