(Tap) Intense. It is good although with a bit of bitterness. I would say it’s almost too strong for me!

Toasty, chocolate and doughy stout. This is the best stout that I have tasted. Beautifully balanced. Lingers lusciously on the tongue.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, April 21 2015) Pours black with a huge pillowy mocha head and lots of lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, soy, smoky charred malts, an earthy peppery note. On the palate, a fair amount of sweet chocolate offset by ashy roasted malt, slightly oxidized soy and liqourice, molasses, a noticable acidic note, earthy. Finish pretty dry with lots of burnt malt bitterness, some chocolate, soy, earthy and smoky with maybe a touch of pepper. Fairly full body with smooth creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation, hints of alcohol. The very heavy roast definitely dominates this beer but sets it apart from most stouts. Still drinks smoothly even if it’s more acidic than sweet and unctuous. Good sipper.

Incredibly smooth, completely masking the elevated ABV. Chocolate comes to mind first, lots of roast grains. Abrupt finish.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This bottle aged a year, enabling the vanilla to become more pronounced among the flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. The beer pours thick, like oil, forming a deep tan head. Taste has the chocolate and malts being balanced by vanilla and the alcohol. Aging yields a much smoother feel to an already smooth beer. The finish comes back to a sweet chocolate. Overall, a wonderfully delicious and contemplative brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottle is 5 years old. Pours stout black with a medium sized cocoa head that shrinks to a foamy top. Solid lacing. Complex without barrel aging. Bright, sweet nose of vanilla, pepper, smoke, berry, and roasted malt. Surprisingly vibrant after several years in the cellar. Medium sweet, medium roasty bitter attack. Full body, decent carbonation, sticky texture and a long roasted, light bitter, earthy finish. Excellent Imperial Stout. Like a fine Cabernet, only one-third the price. Wish I was sitting on a case.
