5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Incredibly bold, thick, meaty and very complex example of the style.. Very sweet, fruity, and roasty with a super concentrated flavor that reminds me of an even more forward Even More Jesus. A real sipper on a cold day, this one will really warm you up, and leave your palate ultra satisfied.

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

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
En flaska som stått något år. Smak och doft av mörk, mörk choklad, kornmalt, bourbon, fat, chokladpudding med toner av vanilj, plommon, dadlar och fikon. Rund, len, mycket krämig, viss syrlighet med tydlig beska med smak av bitter mörkchoklad. Välbalanserad, fruktig och kraftfull. Omnipollo, cigarr och grädden på moset - färjan, kan det bli bättre en sommarnatt.

Glass at the Bier Abbey on 7/1/13. Pitch black pour with a huge light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, raisins, maple and caramel. Chocolate and caramel flavor with more chocolate and slight maple before a roasty and sweet mocha finish. Very impressive.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 65 cl bottle at systembolaget. Fantastic appearance really dark, "Total djävla mörker" as we say in Sweden. The aroma is nice and give hints of chocolate and coffe, it is however too subtle. The mouthfeel is really nice, really thick and good carbonation levels. Pretty much alcohol warmth. Really nice taste with lots of coffe, dark chocolate and some sweetness.
Conclusion: An almost perfect imperial stout. Its only downside is the aroma, which is nice but should be more powerful

Dark malts, raisins and plums, coffee, chocolates, and tar. Long aftertaste of dark malts, coffee, tar and vanilla. Good balance between dry and sweet.

Bomber: Thanks Theydon: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Brown head. Pitch black body. Couldn’t see the toes. Only an eye peeping out of the lamp... Is it a lamp?
Anyways, good aroma: maple syrup, bay leaf, molasses, roast, hops, light soy, light alcohol, flowers, light fruity, liquorice, light coffee, caramelised sugars... Very nice!
Flavour has also maple tones with bitters, roast, oatmeal, light chocolate, light soy and tar tints, some molasses, caramel, some coffee tints, etc etc.
Aftertaste is bitter, roasty, molasses, maple, coffee and caramelised sugars with a hoppy edge.
Low carbo, oily silky sticky mouthfeel (and texture), full bodied.
Great beer, rich, interesting, great bottle art! Darkened destiny...

Fasiken, det här var inga dumma grejer, smaken var kraftfull till tusen med toner av choklad, kaffe och jord. Kroppen var riktigt stabil och balansen var så fulländad som den kunde bli. Slutsats; riktigt bra öl!

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Dark chocolate and maple aromas. Thick with dark chocolate and licorice upfront. Turning to maple syrup in the lasting, hot finish.
