Too much grapefruit in this beer. Pull sourness down a bit and then we are talking.

Mukavan syvän tumma väri, sopivan paahteinen ja runsas vaahto. Maku hyvin voimakas, mutta turhan viipyilevä.

DIRKDENNEMANN (1) - Bad Bentheim (Gildehaus), GERMANY - JAN 31, 2015 does not count
Has heavy fruit smell, even before drinking. Has taste of chocolade and is a very drinkable beer, even for an imperial stout.Still balance of hops and malt is very good.

Beer4000 (4768) - 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 (10521) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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!
