3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from fakta.
label redesigned, now says "Pingus", "Imperial Stout" and at the bottom of the label "ØKOLOGISK".
the two birds in the middle, and the ørbæk red banner are the same. Beer is still 7%
clear dark brown, smooth light borwn head, some lacing.
mild aroma of licorice, roasted stuff, caramel, toffee, chocolate.
flavor is english licorice, sweet caramel, sweet malts, roasted grains. towards the end it gets more roasted, and the far finish is with a little bit of charchoal. appears a bit thin for a 7% brew, but lots of flavor for an ørbæk. If i had never tasted stuff like mikkeller and yeti i’d think this was a fantastic beer ;-).

Cheeseman DELIVERS! Dark brown pour, tan head. Chocolate and fruit. Like an old style cadbury bar. Flavor? Much the same...caramel, toffee, molasses and some chocolate. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
TheCheeseMan come-th and he delivered. Thanks Dan! Pours dark brown with tan head. The aroma is bursting with rich dark fruitiness like boysenberries and dark grapes to go along with a touch of caramel and roast. The taste is much the same with rich dark fruitiness like ripe sugar coated cranberries, boysenberry jam and cherries mixing with a bit of molasses and roast. It yields a delicious combination of roasted malts and dark fruitiness seeming a bit like an old ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
thanks to the man himself, cheeseman!
overly underrated beer, not sure why.
pours dark brown, thin white head with nice golden lacing with some floating sediments.
aroma is grainy, chocolate with possible oat, roasted malts.
taste, bready notes, chocolate malts, dark fruits; possibly dry fig / dates, touch of grassy hops.
Definitely a European approach to Imp stout, and a very nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting brown head. Clear very dark brown body. Roasted barley malt aroma with chestnut notes as well as caramel and a bit of cocoa. Mild choccolate liquorice flavor rather than expected coffee, a bit of caramel and chestnut ads up. No hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a black colour with short lasting tan head. Aroma is dark caramel, syrup and roasted malt. Flavor is coffee, dark chocolate. Very disappointing for an Imperial Stout. This is more a plain stout if you ask me. Had it been labeled that way, I might have rated it otherwise.
