(Bottle). Nice soft scent of chocolate, tart fruit, roasted malt and smoke, but also some vague not so nice aroma of barn. The taste is silky smooth with slightly tart fruity tones (the maple syrup?) and rich flavors of chocolate and roasted malt. The aftertaste has a nice dry bitterness and warming alcohol. Recommended!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong Imperial Stout aroma with a little sweetness. The taste is heavy and a little dryness. No carbonic acid. The aftertaste is left for a long while. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013, 10/08/13.
Light black with a thin tan head.
Nose is big old roasty malts, oaky booze, earthy, a little harsh on the alcohol notes, minerals.
The taste is a little more refined than the aroma, earthy, gritty, cocoa, dark fruits, dark toffee, light hoppy backnotes.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, lightly cloying in the finish with a touch of warming booze.
Decent enough but no show stopper for the premier style!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black with a small mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, espresso coffee, muscovado sugar, vanilla, some hazelnut. Taste is lovely, a great balance of chocolate, coffee, honey, vanilla, dark red berries. Mouthfeel is creamy as hell with a very nice texture. Great stuff and Omnipollo’s best so far hands down!

Fylligheten fullbordar varvet i smakhjulet och beskan slår kvart i tolv. Klockan klämtar med andra ord för en smaksensation av Guds nåde. Man kan bocka av hela kartoteket med smaker och dofter om man så vill - pumpernickel, soja, katrinplommon, lakrits, kaffe, kakao, lönnsirap - men som med all stor konst är summan större än delarna. Tinar upp det mest förhärdade av hjärtan.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a small espresso coloured head.
Aroma is soft, nothing takes overhand. Roasted malt, smooth coffee, vanilla, sweet notes.
Taste is sweet with coffee, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, dark chocolate and then some more coffee as well as slight syrup, dates and a slight heat at the end.
Full bodied, low carbonation, a bit to low for my taste. Smooth mouth feel and a dry roasted bitter after taste.
Reminded me quite a lot of Black Hole, but with more roast.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apperance: Black with a very dark, brown, head.
Aroma: Chocolate, Licorice, Coffee.
Taste: Chocolate, Coffee, Licorice, Smoke and salty soysauce.
Palate: Thick and overpowering. Light carbonation.
Where is the maple-syrup in this? I think this stout would have been alot better if it was aged on maply-syrup-barrels than just adding it at the brewing. My first disappointing brew from Omnipollo.
