4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had at EBF 2008. In a festival of barrel aged this and that and lots of extreme beers, this clearly stood out as about the best. Dark brown color. Huge brownies, dark chocolate and dark cherries exude from the nose. Ridiculously rich and over the top. Thick, sweet mouth of liquid heaveness with calvados showing up more here with oranges, brownies, milk chocolate, oranges and maple syrup. Finishes big, sweet and rich with lingering chocolate and calvados notes. King of extreme should be its nickname.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Totally opaque liquid with a thick, dark brown and very creamy head. This is how an imperial stout is supposed to look. Aroma is a bit pungent and rather sweet with lots of oak, but most of all a lot of apples. Taste is incredibly rich with a lot of heavily roasted malt and apples, some sweetness, notes of oak, spices, vanilla and smoke. Low carbonation and a thick, rich mouthfeel. A completely wild and crazy beer. Really fantastic and an amazing experience.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big thanks to Papsoe for that bottle. Looks great, the beer in the glass also, deep black, a bit oily, almost no head. Starts very, very sweet, strong, modest alcoholic. Notes of sweets, liquorice and marzipan. Also some chocolate. Finish is intense malty, a bit woody, still very sweet. Goes down burning, warming aftertaste. Very drinkable for it’s strength. Very good beer!
