Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle 150 cl. Pours a thick and syrupy opaque black with no head. Intense aroma where dark dried fruit and molasses domimate over malty roastiness. And already here the alcohol tickles my nostrils. Rich body - not exactly huge or fat though. Close to flat carbonation wise. Licorice and syrup and molasses and dates and always this tickling alcohol. Quite some hops for a sort of balance making this one of the super huge Imperial Stouts that is drinkable. Still a sipper though! 100912

teorn88 (6459) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Backlog rating. Large bottle split at CBC Clerkenwell during Siren Maiden launch, London. It pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of dark chocolate, toffee, vanilla and light booze. Taste is big, bold and sweet with more dark chocolate, raisins, bread, vanilla and honey. Light roastiness to keep the finish a bit drier. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, really good impy

Staffan47 (906) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Provning av Stella-serien på Mikkeller HQ dagen före CBC-14. Får direkt en bourbon county-vibb. Bourbon i doften så det sjunger om det. Nästan jobbigt mycket bourbon. Spritstark och kraftika tanniner. Ek och vanilj. Som att tugga på ekfat. Viss krämighet men på det stora hela en spritig sträv soppa.
