Tuoksu tumma, makea, täyteläinen. Vaahto katoava, mokka. Maku pehmyt, paahteinen, kevyen humalainen, paahteinen. Suutuntuma mielyttävä, sopivan paksu runko.

På pikkulintu med Isabel 21 nov 2015. Svartipa så det sjunger om det. Gillar inte stilen men förstår att den här är populär hos vissa. Beskan är hög. Humlegräsig och brända toner. Stilig och trevlig bartender.

Pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, herbs, hops, abit dark chocolate and coffee. Taste goes along with the aroma : multi-layered roasted malts with hops and fruits and coffee. Amazing stuff, well balanced. Overall this is a very refreshing and hoppy imperial stout, recommended!

Bottle thanks to Secret Santa! Pours opaque black, medium creamy brown head, dissipates leaving decent residual and lacing. Roasy aroma, anise, molasses, cocoa. Flavor is light sweet, medium plus bitter, roasty, burned notes, molasses, pine. Lingering bitter finish. Medium body.

Flaska på Närke Kulturbryggeri, kladdkakans dag. Ett källarfynd som plockades upp under firandet av kladdkakans dag. Svart vätska med fingertjockt brunt skum. Lakritskola, fudge, choklad, enbärsbuske och mörkrostade och syrliga toner i doften. Inleds med en del sötsura toner för att gå över i trevlig kaffebeska som växer till sig. Helt ok!

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Raisins, molasses and licorice sweetness are pierced by resinous hops and their bitterness in this nicely aromatic Imperial Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam surfs the blackness.
-Very interesting because it is flavorful, but also because it is a textbook recipe.
-Mouthfeel is very rich, but not overwhelming, which I appreciate.
-Shades of fruity vanilla also peek through.

Bottle, 2014 edition. Thx, Timo!

Pours dark brown with average creamy, mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate roasted maltiness with nuts, coffee and chocolate. Moderate to heavy hops, orange, grass and pine. Leather and earth tones in yeast. Notes of toffee, vanilla and soy sauce. Nicely balanced taste with moderate sweetness and surpisingly heavy bitter with dryish and long finish. Nice touch of salty accent. Moderate body yet creamy texture with lively carbonation. A hint of alcohol at the end.
