Nästan svart öl med stort brunt skum. Doftar kaffe, choklad och lakrits med viss sötma. Havren är inte framträdande i vare sig doft eller smak, men kan anas. Samma komponenter som finns i doften återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en trevlig humlebeska.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black color with brownish head. Not all pronounced aroma, the dark features are lurking behind. Darker fruits and licorice dominates. Flavour and mouthfeel is all I want in an Imperial Stout - rich yet not too heavy. Salty licorice, dark fruits, bit burnt and sourish. Bit of oatmeal in there too. Mouthfeel is big of course with a pretty solid residual sweetness that’s not too disturbing. Bitterness is herbal and on a medium level.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours pitch black with tab head - recedes very quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark fruits, coffee, deep roasted malt, liquorice. Taste is geared towards the deep roasted malt notes, luxurious dark chocolate, slight smokey flavours, some fig/prune notes, bit of coffee too; mouthfeel is full, silky, and smooth - the oatmeal playing its part evidently. Tasty hop bitterness to finish. A great Imperial Stout - thoroughly enjoyed it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brända malt-toner, mörk choklad, starkt kaffe och en del lakrits. En bra och prisvärd stout som nog blir bra med några år på vinden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle). Lovely aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet coffee, licorice, some smoke and fresh hops. In the taste is the element of oats evident, something that makes the flavor wonderfully soft. Other prominent flavors in the flavor is chocolate and licorice. In the aftertaste there is a soft, dry bitterness. The alcohol is noticeable only as a warming element. A fabulous beers with a more than great price, similar beers normally costs at least twice as much as this. A bargain! And a tasty beer!
