beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle. Erupted out of the bottle like the volcano Eyjafjallajökull on Island. It poured a black color with a frothy tan head. Aroma is very vinous with alot of dark fruit, some old dusty notes, roasted malt and a burnt ashy taste. Flavor is of dark fruit and sweet malts, again its very vinous. You also get the roasted malt and some coffee in the finish. The body is full with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Overall a pretty good but quite sweet Imperial Stout.
