Fad: Aftenens helt store overraskelse, på den fantastiske måde. Sort øl med et fint mokkafarvet skumhoved. Duften er helt fantastisk. Kaffe, chokolade og vanilie blander sig i en indbydende cocktail der bare for en til at blive ved med at dufte. Smagen er næsten deroppe af. Igen masser af kakao men lidt mindre vanilie. Super øl.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ S&B, thanks to Jan or Svend, I dunno. Dead black with a small brown head. Aroma is fresh grounded coffee beans, earthy and mineral coffee at that, Kaluha notes which means a lot of liquory sweetness. Nice dark chocolate, and vanilla notes, a good loot og roated malts. The taste pretty much sums up what the aroma is about, lots of coffee, it adds lots of liquorice and burnt malt notes, almost like chewing black malts. Some chocolate cake and caramel sweetness along with vanilla. Finishes with a clear hop presence and lingering bitterness, both alpha acid and black malt bitterness. Very good coffee imperial stout.
