Panimomestareidemme taidonnäyte ja samalla LWT Oy:n 15-vuotistaivalta kunnioittava juhlaolut. Suodattamaton pintahiivaolut, mitä on kypsytetty 15 kuukautta. Maultaan erittäin täyteläinen, voimakkaasti humaloitu, paahteisen maltainen, suklainen ja kahvimainen. EBC yli 300, EBU 82.

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle shared with Nimrod and Yael. Thanks Israel Falka! Very black, opaque, with a foamy tan head. Malt, plum raisins and faint smoke aroma. Tastes very bitter yet delicate, piney but definitely not hoppy. Full-bodied, dry, astringent finish.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized creamy light to medium brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, liquorice, some hops. Taste malts, hops, liquorice, a touch of sweet-bitter. Not your typical imperial stout, but very enjoyable!

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Jan, thanks! Black with a beige head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma has chocolate, dark rye bread, roasted malt. Taste match the aroma and also has some sweet note (vanilla?) as well as lots of bitter hops. Full body, soft carbonation, soft, velvety mouth feel. After taste is herbal bitter and long.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2014
330ml bottle. Black colour, small mostly vanishing frothy brown head, lacing. Heavily malty roasty aroma of coffee, dark bread and a hint of chocolate, heavy peppery and herbal hops. Taste is initially slightly sour and bitter, turning into heavily bitter finish with a moderately alcoholic feel. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite nice aroma but could have a more robust maltiness to cover the alcohol better.

mikkos (172) - FINLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Black beer with a smallish brown head. Aroma is coffee, roasted and bready malts, rye bread, a bit sweet. Some fruity hops too. Taste is dark roasty malts, hops, hint of alcohol. Rather bitter. Mouthfeel rather full and smooth, starts with a bit too high co2 though. Good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Strong, sweet and very good taste. Looks amazing in a bottle, dark as death.
