2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft sample. Dirty dish rag / mold aroma covering whatever roast, dark malt and hop character thatís in there. Prickly acids and dirty solvent to go with your roast, cocoa, coffee core. Watery, thin finish. Should have scrolled past.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black colour with a beige head. Moderate sweet aroma with coffee and roasted malt. Mild moderate sweet chocolate, coffee and raosted malt flavour. If this was a normal stout. I would have said. Well done. Misses some power to be called an Imperial Stout. Anyway an ok beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At brewpub: Pours a black with beige head. Aroma is slightly roasty. It has a velvety mouthfeel. There be some small roasted malts. Some sugar be there aussi. It has no hops. I thought this was 4-5% alcohol (Judging by taste), so I was surprised to find out I was drinking an Imperial Stout when I checked the tap from whence it came. There is nothing bad here, but alas, there is not enough good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Nice dark amber with puffy head. Nose is roasty malts and chocolate. Taste is also lots of malts, toffee, chocolate. Really nice strong and solid. Was more like a souped-up Vienna but enjoyed it definitely.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri, Oslo. Black body with a medium creamy light caramel head. Nose is mild coffee and licorice tones. Taste is roasty coffee tones, licorice and hints of dark chocolate. Watery mouthfeel, seems thinner and less potent than the alleged 7 % ABV should indicate; I really donít think this qualifies as anything but a "regular" stout; itís kind of like a slightly beefy Guinness, without ever being convincing. At least thereís no butter in sight; after having 4 consecutive diacetyl-ridden brews I was starting to feel like I was in a dairy or something. Oslo Mikrobryggeri, never again. At least not until I hear some optimistic progress reports.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri. This is a deep deep red-brown beer with a nice and really creamy khaki, lacing and lasting head. The aroma is mildly roasted with nice tones of both fruit, coffee and chocolate. Soft carbonation and it has a gentle creamy and quite nice mouthfeel. Flavors are like a mild and kind stout should be. Light roasted with references to both chocolate and coffee. This also has a light but distinct fruity hint in the finish and aftertaste. Yeah, I quite liked this one, but itís no imperial stout this!
