Pitch black with white foam. Chocolate and liquirice, roasty. Very very bitter aftertaste that lasts a lifetime. Excellent imperial stout, have chance to drink this all too rarely.

Beer4000 (4613) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2014
On tap @ Panimoravintola Bruuveri, Helsinki. Dark brown, almost black body with a small tan head. Nice aroma of roasted, dark malt, coffee and dry fruit, slightly vinous. Flavor has dark, nice roasted sweet malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dry fruit and fine bitterness. Fine balanced body with a solid aftertaste. Smooth and nice, so balanced that it feels less alcoholic and bitter than described.

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s Pad, thanks to the Leightonator, 04/11/14. Light black with a decent tan covering that dissipates retaining as spotting and edgework. Nose is rich dark fruits, light smoke, bitter roast, earthy, cocoa rub. Taste comprises light booze, spice, earthy cocoa, dark fruit rinds, liqourice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close. Decent enough impy but fell a little short of my expectations based on its score!

Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with some torched malts, baking cocoa, roast, earth, more dried dark fruits. Pretty decent.

The taste is toasty, rich roasty, cherry cola, earth, charred stuff, tar, wood, leaf, light pepper with a dry finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Alright. Salty liquorice.

nimbleprop (5196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2014
12oz bottle via Summer Secret Santa 2014. Pours a murky, opaque black with a ring of lacing, creamy, beige head. Nose has plenty of licorice and rubber, some black pepper, molasses, some roast mushroom, some pen ink, a little bit of liquid smoke. Flavor has some interesting caramelized onion and barbecue sauce notes, plenty of malt obviously, some molasses, a little smoke, some mild charcoal, some squid ink, some industrial notes, a little burnt plasitc. Full bodied, but not as sweet as I anticipated. A nice, big, roasty, filling stout.

330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy dark brown color. Small yellow head, disappears. Malty, dusty, hops, sweet notes in aroma. Roast, coffee, hops, pine, dry yeast in taste. Lovely spicy hops mixed with roast in taste. Mind blower. Fantastic beer! MORE!
