1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Very black, beige head. Aroma of licorice, crude oil and resin. Sweet with full body and viscous, syrupy mouthfeel. Dominated by crude oil, molasses and resin. Disharmonious with distorting inky bitter sweetness. Mikkeller Black-light, but more just messed up.

Bomber into a tulip
Thanks to Baggio for the bottle
Big, black and bold look. Dark brown leather head. Lots of spotty lacing and huge amounts of residual oil left over. Looks like a beast in the glass.
Nose is huge. Lots of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, char, burnt tires and maple syrup. Really well balanced and the ABV is there but well hidden. Flavors stand out real well.
Taste is huge. Lots of roasted malt, chocolate, maple, char, roasted oak, and just amped up flavors. Really bold flavors.
Feel is thick, chewy, bold and dry. Low carbonation and just huge.
Highly suggested. Top notch imperial stout, not for the faint though

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Sugary and sticky. Heavy notes of burned malts. Quite bitter. Still. Bit too young. Tastes a lot like Hypno...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home.
Pours Heavy black and gets a nice Brown head when you swirl the glasl.
Taste of Heavy rosted, slightly burnt malt, soy sauce and some syrupy sweetness. Very similar to Hypnopompa, but less smooth and flattering.

Spuytin Duyvil, Brooklyn tap ($9): Pours black (my pour was to the tip top, so I didn’t see much head). Aroma is chocolate, syrup, roasted malts, a teenth of coffee. Flavor is somewhat sweet, but not cloying. Roasted malts and chocolate flavors mingle well together. High ABV is adequately covered. Easy to drink and quite flavorful.
