4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,25l bottle as gift from Denmark. Opaque, black color with medium, creamy, dark brown head, which disappears quickly. Sweet, alcoholly odor followed by roasty, smoked malt flavours. The aroma is incredibly smoky and roasty. At the beginning itís sweet and caramelly, but after the firs impressions itís dry and tastes like a roast pork. Itís definitelly made with a lot of smoked malt, which causes this meet flavour. It must had a lot of chocolate malt too which makes the color so black, but it doesnít make the beer sour and bitter. Alcohol and honey flavours also appears. Dry, intensive and complex taste, nothing can dominate, but all the three basic flavours (sweet, sour, bitter) appears. Full bodied with oily texture and light carbonation. Roast pork finish. Itís an interesting beer. Surprisingly complex, incredibly oily and full bodied. This beer is dominated by the malty flavours, and from this view itís the opposite of the Mikkeller Black Hole, which is a "hoppy imperial stout". Itís a concentrated beer, 25cl is totally enough. The alcohol content isnít too high, and it canít be felt as dominant in the aroma. The texture, the body, and the malty flavours make this beer this rich and concentrated.

Dark black. Used motor oil. Oil sits on top. Chewy. Lots of thick sediment. Charred. Burnt toast. Itís in your face, exactly like the description says. Quite hoppy for an Impy Stout. Extremely dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours jet black. Aroma is very dark and lots of roasted malts, some salmiak tones.
Taste is sweet and filled with dark roasted malts and coffee tones, some liquorice. No hints of the massive abv at all.
To me it really feels like a great stout suited for additions of both cold brewed coffee and some barrel ageing on bourbon kegs! Got to try the bourbon barrel aged one!
Bottle from SB.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolutely opaque black and heavy bodied beer. Aroma of dark roasted malts and some bitter chocolate. Taste starts intense with some sharp, acidic cacao and a bit of soy sauce. Aftertaste is intensely bitter and roasty. Body is extremely viscous and chewy. Alcohol is present but overall the beer is pretty easy to drink at its high ABV.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into my favorite Delirium tremens snifter the thickest most milky dark brown I have ever seen in a stout. Reminds me of muddy water but in a good way.
Aroma is roasted cocoa.
Flavor is oily like motor oil. Heavy dark chocolate bitter. Mild prunes.
To the palate bittersweet. Caramel. Incredible smoothness almost no carbonation. Delicious

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Appearance is of a thick dark brown dirty motor oil. Taste is a bitter dark chocolate with coffee notes. Palate is incredibly viscous. The thickest beer I have ever had. Actually milk shake like. Would go great with a raspberry or marshmallow dish. Overall an excellent brew definitely worth seeking out. Cheers!
