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 carbonation. We listen to our friends=).

Drink now or age for many years.

Keg at The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey. Black with tan head. There is a winey, full, sweetness to this, vanilla ice cream notes, blackcurrants, quite flat in character. Big and full on the palate, quite oily, tarry, some bitterness. A big and unusual beer.

330 ml bottle. BB 20/07/2023. Courtesy of Euphemos. Black colour with no head. Coffee, roasted malt and mild vanilla sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is coffee, roasted malt, sugary sweetness and more coffee... Coffee, coffee and coffee... I'm out... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1938) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2015
A pitch black, a very weak and dark brown head. Aroma is intensive and great. Coffee, vanilla, some sweetness of raisins and fruits, quite sweet. Taste is also a very powerful, salt liquirice, liquirice, roastiness, black coffee, some sweetness of berries. Full bodied, soy sauce thickness, not sticky, no carbonation. Warming notes in the throat. Very powerful and intensive flavours but still balanced. The great beer for the slow enjoyment.

Alpha10 (394) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
2015/02/27 - Pours a jet black colour with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is amazing: chocolate, vanilla, smoke, marshmallow, mild tobacco and sweet booze. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow, wood, mild smoke and a boozy finish. Mouthfeel is oily with low carbonation and a drying and mildly warming finish. Very surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Would love to savor this by a campfire!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black as night with no head. The aroma is intense roast malt and chocolate. Some coffee and earth as well. The flavor is intense too. Lots of the aroma comes through along with a kick of alcohol. Sip it by a fire.
