Heavy nickel and cream and alcohol aroma. Black color with super thick tan head. Snap. That’s heavy feeling but really balanced taste.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep black with a luscious, consistent light brown head white slowly recedes to a foamy layer on top leaving a lacing on the glass whilst doing so. Aroma is red berries/currants, chocolate and a bit of roast. Taste is cocoa (comes with a cocoa-like coating on the tongue!), earthy, roasted coffee slightly bitter but balanced out by a pleasant oatmeal-ish sweetness. Im not sure this would go up a straw, it has the thickness of rice pudding. Full bodied and full of wonder.

Can from SB 150221.
Pitch black with a very firm mocca head. Very intense flavour with dark dark chocolate, brown sugar, hardroasted coffee, etc.
An excellent Imp Stout.
A bit expensive, though at 50 SEK for a can.

Oily black. Powerful and bitter. Reminds me of finding baker's chocolate in the cupboard as a kid and thinking I was in for a treat. You take a big bite of bitter. You think about spitting it out, but it is stuck to your teeth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured to a snifter from a can, very dark and black appearance with a small brown head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma, taste is not too sweet, but quite balanced. Finishes a bit bitter and with a touch of alcohol, actually thought that abv was a bit higher. Mouthfeel was very oily and thick with carbonation that smoothened a bit after a while. A very nice beer overall!

Really full nice body. Aggressive roastiness, with some earthy rye spice quality to it, dark roasted malts, well rounded with a espresso dark chocolate touch, and a nice bitter bite to it at the end. Feel like this barrel aged would be amazing.
