4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Appearance is black with a thin head of light khaki colored foam. Aroma is chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon, and maybe just a touch of black coffee. Upon first sip, I really get a cinnamon taste, although I don’t think there is any cinnamon in this beer. The chocolate and bitterness work well with one another on the tongue to bring all the complexities of this beer together. Big, chewy mouthfeel, little carbonation, long, bitter chocolate finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a tarry black with some carbonation but not a lot. Smells like soy and anise. Rather full bodied and fairly smooth. Has a smoky flavor with a detectable degree of alcohol. Nice beer to share. Couldn’t put the whole thing down myself.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours pitch-black with a small, fizzy, brown head that soon disappears. Aroma has dark chocolate, light rubber, hazelnuts. Light soy sauce. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has dark chocolate, nuts, coffee, roasted. Oatmeal aplenty, sweet, but maintains a fine degree of roasted and piney hops bitterness. Not as magnificent as the original BORIS, but still a wonderful Imperial Stout.
