COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate truffles, cocoa, espresso coffee, burnt currants, the sweetness of a sherry - all come to mind when enjoying an Imperial Stout. A rich porter of English origin brewed to withstand the long voyage from London to Czarist Russia. The classic "Winter Warmer". Big, Strong, Malty Stout.

Bottle. Pours a dark brownish black color. No head to speak of our lacing. Strong aroma of alcohol, malts, caramel, coffee and maybe a touch of apples. Wow what a mouthful. Very silky smooth and rich. Malts, coffee, chocolate and maybe a touch of soy flavoring as well. Very nicely hidden alcohol. Clean and smooth on the finish. I held this brew for about 3 months. Wish I would have drank it sooner.

Good flavor. Nice balance. A bit lighter mouthfeel versus the bigger IS. This stupid app is requiring that I use 75 or more characters so I'm going to give it a crappy rating in the App Store ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic imperial stout. Big coffee and chocolate. Nice Balance of dry, sweet and bitter. Rich and full flavoured. Beers like this one is the reason I really enjoy imperial stouts probably more than any other beer style. Nice slow sipper that you take time and enjoy.

Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
Mandag i annen på Cardinal okt-14, og vi er på oppløpssiden! Siste innspurt består av Kinn Tomasmesse og Mikkeller Black Gran Marnier Ed., så nå er det bare å stå distansen fullt ut. Moylans er en lekkerbisken som registrer på Richters skala. Brunsvart, og med flott lysebrunt skum. Aroma i lange baner: sjokolade, kaffe, varme rosiner. I den myke smaken sniker også noen sherrytoner seg inn. Dette er kraftkost for viltre krabater.
