Bottle. Flat looking black beer. The aroma is milky and roasted, and the flavour is initially milky with a very malty and roasted bitter finish. Overall complex in parts but not that palatable.

Black color, with a creamy but not persistent head. The aroma of roasted malts is also mildly cheesy, very nice. It would have a better mouthfeel with less carbonation; the body is not too thick; excellent flavor of chocolate and dark malts, spicy, peppery, with a good share of sugars, and also high alcohol content, everything powerful but balancing each other. Very good.

Black at the glass. Head should maybe be some bigger but ok. Roasted malts, coffee hops, the sweetness is there but not to overwhelming. Misses a bit of body. Light earthy biterness...

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
25-NOV-2011, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken".
Black with brown head that dies quickly and only leaves a brown rim and a slightly coated glass.
Nose is tar, smoke like peaty, very roaste - burnt chocolate and espresso.
Taste is the same with a sweet dark fruit-like addition. Under the peat I sense some wood, dry wood.
Layers of burnt brown sugar fills the mouth.
Fine carbonation to sort of break the sweetness.
Extremely complex, and very very sweet. Nothing wrong with that:-)
I love this brew. My 99th Mikkeller rating and my rating #1200.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Blacker than Thatcher’s heart pour with a thick, creamy tan head. Raisins, bonfire toffee, plain chocolate and burnt sugar aromas. Most alluring indeed. Smoky-dry flavours of dark roast coffee and chocolate. Quite sticky. Dry as Jack Dee’s wit finish. I love me Impys and this is up there with the best of ’em!
