Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2009
Aroma of milky coffee and smoke. Starts off with more milky coffee leading off into sweet, dark chocolate, smoke and alcohol. One of the sweeter and milder imperial stouts I recollect having, neither of which (the latter in particular) is something I seek out in a beer of that style. Not really my thing, thus, but impressive that an Icelandic brewery did this. Not going for a more aggressive beer is probably a good decision when it comes to sales in the home market. Hopefully this paves the way for wilder stuff.

esp0r (2165) - NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle @ Ölrepubliken shared with Daje. Black, no head. Some lacings on glass, so it’s not ugly :) Smells of bacon, smoke, burned wood and some foot sweat. Taste is egg and bacon. Some sweetness. Too much smoke i’m afraid. Oily feel. Finish is not very hoppy.
