COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On my way to this iconic brewery with a suitcase full of marshmallows I admittedly questioned my good judgement. However, sipping on a glass of this beer I am utterly happy that the purist in me stayed at home.

Omnipollo Hypnopompa is an imperial stout brewed with almost 100 kgs of marshmallows and Tahitian vanilla beans (the size of cigars). Virtually no carbonation and boiled a bit extra for good measure this is a beer strictly for the stout inclined.

Batch #1 intentionally has no carbonation. Batch #2 has low carbonationd and cold extracted Hafursa coffee.

Drink now or age for many years.

Bottle from Beers’n’more, BB 2024, so I’ll assume batch #2. Intense aroma of coffee and vanilla indeed. Not particularly sweet though, neither on the tongue or on the palate. Pretty dry for such a beer. Powerful, fat, full-bodied. Little bit of carbonation, but only when it’s not too cold. Just a tad boozy, but it fits. A good sipper.

Bottle 330ml. Pours an oily pitch black with a thin creme tan head. Aromas of marshmallows, chocolate, roasted espresso beans and vanilla. Full bodied with no to little carbonation. Taste: marshmallow, dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso coffee, molasses, dark fruit, toffee and licorice. It has a thick and chewy mouthfeel, an absolute monster of an imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciocanelu (1002) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 5, 2016
Black color with mocha head. Aroma has vanilla and coffee, sweet and slightly smokey. Taste follows with a bit of smoked malt, wood, coffee, chocolate and some bitterness on the finish. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Quite good but I don’t really get the marshmallows.

Thick, black, low carb... Plenty of roast, loads of coffee... not much marshmallow or vanilla... but delicious all the same.

Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana, noin sormen paksuisella hyvin tummanruskealla vaahdolla. Tuoksusta vahvimpana iskee kahvisuus: sekä kahvipapuja että ns. valmista kahvia löytyy. Alta ei meinaa oikein aromeja löytyä, mutta vaahtokarkkien makeus tulee kuitenkin läpi, sekä ihan hieman vanilijaa sekä lievää sokerisuutta (voi olla osa vaahtokarkkisuttakin). Suuri pettymys tässä vaiheessa. Maussa kahvi ei ole yhä dominoiva, vaikka onkin hyvin vahvaa etenkin jälkimaussa jääden suuhun. Vanilijaa ja pähkinää on alussa enemmän, vaahtokarkki ei nyt nouse yhtään esiin. Lievää salmiakkisuuttakin on, joka sekoittuu sellaiseen marjalikööriseen tuntumaan. Mutta maun puolivälissä kahvi ottaa kokonaisuuden hallintaansa ja kahvipavut tuntuvat kaikkein vahvimpana, mikä on aika jännä maku. Suutuntuma on hyvin täyteläinen, intensiivinen ja hieman makea, alkoholikin lämmittää hieman. Todella kahvinen IS, josta en itse oikein välitä ja muut aromit jäävät liiaksi sen jalkoihin.

Eschewed on tap at the brewery because it looked too sweet, but acquired this 2013 bottle as a gift/trade. Not sure if it’s super sweet fresh but the aged version was not. Did get a bit of sweetness from the marshmallows but mostly this is an oil-thick imperial stout that is clearly strong but still enjoyable.

freretoc (1536) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 30, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl chez Anthony à Paris, couleur noire pas de mousse et petite effervescence. Nez sur le café et surtout le chocolat. En bouche attaque sur le café, le marc et le cappuccinnonL Le fait d’ajouter du café à froid fait complètement annihiler le goût du marshmallow et de la vanille, limité j’étais déçu en lisant la description...

Bottle at home. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, alcohol. Taste is moderate bitter and sweet, coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, sugary candy sweetness, warming alcohol. Dry ending, bitter roasted malts and coffee aftertaste. Nice, but not really picking up the vanilla or real marshmallows.
