3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE Jun 16, thanks SaintMatty, 20141212) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had liquorice, ash and burnt malts. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were liquorice, saltiness, chocolate, fruitiness, burnt malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, burnt and bitter. A well done balanced sweet strong stout. A little bit too sweet for me.

Well tasting imperial stout that is a bit thin. It would have gotten a higher rating if it was "more" to it.

0,33 flaske hos Einar, nov-14: etter Oppigårds Thurbo Double IPA, og dette var noe helt annet! Svart, med højt beige skum som varer. Lakris, kaffe og litt røykmalt i aroma. Mer av de samme i smaken, som i tillegg er tørr og god, lett syrlig med en dæsj bitter sjokolade i kanten. Lang ettersmak.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours jet black. Aroma is the standard imperial stout, hmm does it say imperial anywhere? Guess it doesn´t, but man i categorize this as one, a good one at that. Rich tones of coffee and chocolate on both the aroma and taste. The body on it could have been a bit larger though, does feel a bit "thin" for an RIS.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ home. Pours a black liquid with a beige to brown lasting head head. Dry and somewhat sweet aroma of leather, sweet licorice, dark fruits, coffee, vanilla, syrup, roasted barley, herbs and chocolate. Medium to big mouth feel with a smooth texture. Sweet flavor of chocolate, coffee, licorice, cocoa, dark fruits, vanilla, some hers, syrup, dark bread. Long lasting finish with a nice chocolate bitterness and some lingering dark syrup in balance. Nice complexity and balance.

Aroma is chocolate pudding, nuts and roasted malts. Taste is dark fruits, bitter chocolate and of course dark malts. It carries a pretty thin body and a dry, bitter finish. If it was "heavier", it would have been top notch

Draught @ Olut Expo Finland 2014
Aroma is thurboboosted with coffee. Also some dark chocolate and toffee. Flavour has salty licorice, which is quite dominant. Also some coffee and distant rubbery tones. Too salty for me.
