Black. Coffee aromas, toasted malt, chocolate. Sweet taste with dark dark malt, coffee and chocolate. Some hops adding bitterness to the finish. Pretty dull.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. BB 01/09/13. Mange tak Timo A!
Black color, small tan head.
Roasted malt, alcohol, sweetness and burned white fish in the aroma.
The flavor is roasted malt, sweetness, spices, alcohol and sugar. Nothing really wrong with this but a bit boring for an Imperial Stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a massive cloudy caramel-hued beige head. Nose is dark berries, coffee, grains, caramel and hints of licorice and leather. Taste is bitter herbs, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and hints of grains and dark berries. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but the high carb levels and bitter herbal hoppy notes makes it a bit harsh around the edges. Decent enough, but certainly no winner in this weight class.,

Taste is sour-ish roasted, weeds, sour coffee, burnt grain, grass, minerals, burnt toast, bark, licorice, pine needles, paper. Medium to longlasting bitterness, sour-ish harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500 ml) at home. Best before 06-06-2017. Pitch black with a frothy large persistent brown head leaving good lacing. Aroma is of fudge, vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, raisins and mild spiciness. Taste is sligthly sweet, mildly acidic and quite fruity with raisins, roasted malts, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Medium body, but a bit thin for the style. Medium carbonation. Fruity finish. Short aftertaste. Decent flavorful RIS but thin on the mouthfeel and a bit too acidic for my liking.
