4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Bottle #39. Overwhelming aroma of dark roasted malts, liqour soaked fruits and lots of vanilla. Pours pitch black with very little carbonation, a tiny tan ring is barely spotted. Lots of coffee in the flavor, notes of chocolate, vanilla and brandy, reminds me a bit of some sort of vanilla/chocolate ice cream. Very intense, deliveres a small and pleasant alcohol burn to the throat. The vanilla becomes a bit cloying i think.

Mørk brun/svart i fargen. Lukter malt, kaffe og lakris. Preges av kaffe i smaken også. Smaken sitter i lenge. Dette er godt:-)

Kraftig stout med hel del kaffe, chocklad och kakao. Viss sötma men inte för övertagande.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Impressive looking, black and brilliant, with a generous but not excessive head, coffee au lait color. Deep, intense and lingering aromas to several versions of coffee -raw, roasted, espresso-, roasted and burnt malts, and an alcohol backbone. Overwhelming taste, underlining the nose notes and adding another ones to liquorice, liquor and black bitter chocolate. The overall is a huge beer, a perfect imperial Stout, perfectly ensembled, balanced and finished. Very difficult to improve.

Tap at Uiltje bar. Coffee, lots of roasted nuts, lots of red berries, some ash. Medium sweet with light tartness and coffee bitter finish. Nice hops throughout but the specific hop aromas get a bit lost. Medium to full bodied with slight thin feel. Nice.
