Bottle. Black with small brown head. Aroma of dates, malt sweetness, roasted malt and chocolate malt notes. Medium/Light body with some light coffee and toasted malt notes that is nicely balanced with malt sweetness. Maybe not quite Imperial but very drinkable.

Hopmaestro (358) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2014
Aroma is of course, roasted malts, caramels, bread and chocolates. The taste provides with a rather distinct attack from heavy roasted malts at first and slowly tips over towards dark fruits, liquorice and coffee. The finale is actually pretty light and thin which had me a bit confused, as I expected a true bitter and longlasting effect, but no. Still a pretty good Imperial Stout, even if it’s a bit low on the abv and the thin finale.

Cool_Bond (1845) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
Good roasted malt aroma. The taste is of dark malt, roasted malt also a little sweetness. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Really good beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Peter_L (1027) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2014
Tap@SÖSB. Blecksvart vätska med brunfärgat skum. Doft av säd, bröd, bränt bildäck och medicin. Smaken överraskar positivt. Choklad, mörkrostat kaffe. Fräsch och lätt munkänsla. Lite syrligt avslut.

Bottle shared by Alex. Thanks! Pours pitch black with a two finger tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso, with a touch of oxidation. Medium heavy mouthfeel. Taste follows the nose and has a ash and char note as well. This is a very tasty brew and one I’m glad I got to try. It is very good.
