Aroma is rather nice with whiskey, smoke, some licorice, hints of ash, vanilla and cocoa. Flavour is rather woody with licorice, some smoke, licorice, tobacco, hints of ash and vanilla. Dry finish. A bit too woody but nice anyway.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Thanks to Sfhodense.
Yes, a completely motoroil black as night pour with a good pretty vast (darker) brown head. Looks good.
Smell is a big bomb of liquorice, coffee, burnt malts, spices, coal, earth, espresso, yeast
Taste coffee, earth, wood/oak, liquorice, earth, good firm bitter, hint of sticky burnt sweets, hint of alcohol, dark fruit: raisin. A good full bodied, but slightly strange balanced, still good, bodied tasting beer.
Spicy bitter burnt wood coffee aftertaste. The roasted sweets, coffee, light earth and firm bitterness stays in the aftertaste for a long time. (Thats good!)
Low carbo, full body, soft creamy/oily mouthfeel and a (creamy) oily sticky texture.
Talking about a big impy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle found in special outside beer box, bought at the European beer festival in Copenhagen quite some time back. Heavy alc, smoked honey, resin nose. Pitch oily black with no head nor lace but solid legs. Thick syrup, fine carb’d paltte. A lot more balanced than than thought, even though well split. Heavy sugary start with a very bitter herbal medi aftertaste an ginger in the middle. Odd but lovable!
