4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2010 Pitch black with a small and disappearing brown head. Quite an overwhelming aroma with coffee and chocolate, mint, wood, hops and licorice. Sweet and thick initially, but soon taken over by hops and roast grain. Awesome experience with lots of nuances.

Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5 l bottle. Black with dark tan head. Strong flowery, citrusy and mentholy hop aroma in the forefront. The aroma is also sweet and honyeish with roastiness in the background. The flavor is bittersweet, citrusy and vinous at first, then turning into dry, bitter, mentholy, roasty and ashy finish. Soft and viscous palate. Excellent imperial stout, although american hops mask a bit too much the roastiness.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled. Dark hazel color, dense and foamy head. Much creamy and of great persistence. Complex scent, much rich and pleasant one: notes of ash, bitter chocolate, torrefy cereals and filled with smoke wood. Soft, full of flavor and sturdy taste but not excessive alcoholic content. Round and light moved with great aromas of smoked green wood and roast cereals. Lightly dry finish.
Thanks to mabjork for this great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 This is the most European, by definition, imperial stout I’ve ever had the pleasure of consuming. Midnight black, pours out like used Mobil 1. Aroma dominated by blueberry, blackberry. very soft mouthfeel, thin but quenching. Roastiness present but not overwhelming. Licorice and chocolate on the back end. This brewery is underrated imho. I just wish the aroma was more intense. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 A wonderful beer. Black-black with brown head, quite thick for the voltage in this one. Wonderful modest but strong aroma, unfortunately my skills are not sufficient to describe the different parts of it. Extremely thick and silky.
