4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A wicked good beah! This beer has the best appearance of any beer I have tried; pitch black with a dark nicely formed head. It smells like brownies and tastes like dark chocolate-covered espresso beans. There is a slight undertone that iI cant put my finger on; slightly metalic tasting, perhaps from the can? Either way I enjoy the fact that someone has finally canned a truely great beer. Id love to try it from a whiskey barrel.

Beautiful dark black out of can. Frothy tan head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, black coffee. Taste is all that and more. Sweet malt, bitter coffee, chocolate bitter finish. Lively carbonation slick, creamy mouthfeel. Really good stout.

33 cl systembolaget. Svart färg. Doftar en del bröd men det är först vid smaken denna öl sticker ut. Massor av choklad och kaffe. Även en del alcohol. Väldigt god!

33 cl from Systembolaget. Black beer with beautiful creamy, frothy brown head. Very malty aroma is roasty and hoppy with chocolate and coffee. The same goes for the tasty flavour. Soft and oily mouthfeel. Astonishing stuff.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

One of the best pouring imp stouts I’ve ever seen! Pitch black dark with an awesome mocha head. Smells super anise which is a little off putting to me but don’t mind it much in the flavor. Not my typical style of stout which is usually heavy roast, coffee or bourbon. This is anise, dark fruit and spices but for some reason I love it because it is packed with flavor. Also extra points for being canned and accessible, although expensive.

can. Pours thick black with big deep brown head. Burned malt, with quite a bit of chocolate. Bitter and a bit astringent. Substantial booze. I’m clearly in the minority, but I think this is probably one of the worst stouts I’ve ever had. Way too many off flavors, inculding a metallic fishiness. WTF?

Poured from 355mL can. Dark black pour with very quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma has a bit of soy sauce with some chocolate and roasted malts. Taste of sweet mild-chocolately malts, with some roast and alcohol. Medium body, oily texture.
