Big, black, strong, and oily. This is a beautiful beer and there is no other way to say it. This is a whopper of a stout and there is not a bad thing I can say about it.

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. I love imperial stouts. This one has a deep chocolate flavour, molasses, and oysters. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length.

Tap at Mikkeller and Beer Festival 2010. Pours a deep deep black colour with brown head. Aroma is unbelievable, lots of coffee, roast, smoke, soy, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is even better, such a deep flavor, probably the best imperial stout I have ever had.

Palme (3385) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
My #200 rating! 0.25l bottle. Pours a beautiful thick jet-black body with a small tanned bubbly head. Nose is absofruitly beautiful. Lots of wood, vanilla, roast, dark chocolate, salty licorice, cherries and strong espresso. Full-bodied and low carbonation. Tastes even better. Tingles down the throat in a deep, dark roasted sensation, thick as cream with flavors from heaven. Really longlasting bitter chocolate sticking to the tongue. My god this is good! Hint of raspberries, dried fruits, dark wood and cigar. Amazing, and for me this is almost overwhelmingly nice!

Oh this is just my favorite beer. Very big and strong. Lots of roasted malt. Pours black. Almost no foam. Tasty. You can feel the abv but you think its less than it actually is and just notice when you are ordering the next one and see two bartenders. I dont know if it being a 250 cc bottle is a good or bad thing.

Inbreak (2137) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 20.01.2013, tap @ Mikkeller Bar:
Big brown creamy loooonglasting head. Aroma is rich and slightly sweet, dark malts, sweet licorice, roasted coffee, cocoa, caramel, grass, dark sugar, chili, dark fruits, hints of vanilla. Taste is very rich, dark roasted malts, raw licorice, slightly sour-ish coffee, cocoa, dark sugar, burnt caramel, oak, grass, hops, hints of chili. Longlasting bitterness, thick syrupu mouthfeel. Incredibly mild and balanced for the ABV. This is just pure pleasure, it can’t get much better than this unless it’s bourbon aged!

So Mikkeller, so good. This pours so thick and black out of the bottle with a slight and quick vanishing head. Smells like wine, port, oak. Almost feels a bit oily on the tongue. The first taste is of a intense chocolate then coffee roast, raisins. Smooth and tasty all the way down. Hardly any bitter taste.

Black beer, as so many stouts are. Head was really dark brown, and if I did not see wrong it had little bit red as colour. Too bad that the head disappeared so quickly, it would have like to examine longer this quite extraordinary foam. There is not lot of smell other than malts and sweetness, but I cannot say same about taste. What an aroma bomb. Liquid is gooey. There’s coffee, caramel, toast, roast, hay, cocoa and even drops. I really, really like this.
