Our Imperial Stout is an impressive, ebony black beer with gorgeous ruby hued highlights. Brewed with several kinds of rich caramel and roasted malts, this robust, full-bodied stout is packed with sensuous chocolate and coffee flavors. The complex roastiness of this brew is interwoven with rich toffee, subtle dark fruit and a hint of anise to round off the malt experience. The intense maltiness is balanced with a floral hop flavor and the aroma from Cascade and Golding hops. With an immense original gravity of 23 Plato, this opulent beer finishes at 10% alcohol by volume. Imperial Stout is a lavish blend of sumptuous flavors, it is silky smooth and deceptively strong.

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2013
Flaske: Kulsort olieret øl med et flot mokkafarvet skumhoved. Duft af lakrids og let ristet malt. Smagen er sød med masser og lakrids. Lidt for engelsk i sit udtryk.

Bottle in Minneapolis picked up in KC. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a thin brown head. Big roasty chocolate malty, anise, a touch smoky aroma. Somewhat bitter. Earthy, light coffee, very roasty, dark chocolate flavor. Not bad.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2013
12oz bottle. The pour was a muddy ebony black with a slight ruby hue and a medium cocoa brown head that bordered between average and large, which did recede down to a nice thick film creating some fair runny lacing. The aroma was of roasted dark bread malts, light floral hops and a meaty leathery yeast with notes of toffee, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit (raisons and prunes) and just a hint of licorice. The taste was a roasty bitter sweet with hints of chocolate and toffee early on, progressing with a mild hoppy bitterness, a touch of fruit, a bold coffee presence, a bit of licorice and a noticeable alcohol tinge right at the end. The flavor lasted a very long time following the swallow with a bitter roasty alcohol taste left lingering for quite a while longer. Mouthfeel was full in body and dry in texture with a good strong carbonation, which is kind of unusual in a stout. Overall this was a unique Imperial Stout with a bitter sweet fruitiness and a bold roastiness, which worked very well together along with the smooth alcohol flavor making this an enjoyable brew to sip on.... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

No decipherable bottling information.
Appearance: Pitch black body with a thin brown head, the head has average retention and settles into a frothy ring with a thin covering.
Aroma: Sweet cocoa is the first thing that comes to mind, milk chocolate actually. Roasted coffee and raisins are mild, but add nicely to this.
Taste: Bittersweet chocolate with raisins with a backing of roasted malts is the best way to describe this. The roasted malts linger as if I sipped black coffee, along with dark fruits.
Palate: Medium to thick bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a surprisingly well done imperial stout. This is available at a great price and is on par with many other good imperial stouts I’ve had. Certainly give this one a try.
