4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a black liquid with a beige head which almost immediately disappears. Aroma is strong and the taste backs this up. Huge malt flavours and dark fruits. Quite a kick of coffee with a healthy bitterness which goes some way to balance the huge flavours. A truly over the top beer which is exactly how I like them.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.355l bottle from Bierkoning. It’s almost like pouring motor oil in the glass. Really dark and black with a really good looking big lasting deep ash brown head that’s leaving some hefty lacings. Not to extreme on the nose initially, but it has a strong theme of vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Some slightly charred coffee beans and a little dark fudge sweetness. Gains more momentum after a while in the glass and it’s not bad at all. It has a really thick and almost cut-through feeling in the mouth. Quite gentle on the prickling carbonation. It’s roasted in the taste alright. Lots of burned coffee and really dark butter black Belgian sugarless chocolate. Cocoa nibs with hints of burned dry wood. There is a a faint coffee acidity all the way on the back. Soft warming tail and it’s lingering burned in the mouth. A nice really ink black flavored imp stout. 30.03.2014

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma sweet, milk chocolate, raisins, dark fruits, some warming alcohol. Inviting. Pitch black colour. Taste is mostly sweet, chocolate, intensely roasted, some alcohol. Decent hoppy bitter base, which reveals itself in the finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
deep roasty complex coffee/nutty blend with some chocolate notes attached. This is a serious imperial stout that doesn’t disappoint.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful black with a brown creamy head. Coffee and molasses nose. Very sweet and it hides the ABV well. Coffee and malt flavours dominate here. Palate is a little light for the style but not too bad, good carbonation.

Jag vågar knappt ta det här ölets namn i min mun. Så stor respekt har jag för det. Det här är Allah, Jah, Shiva och fan och hans moster på släktkalas. Prisad vare vem det än är. Glöm förresten namnet, det enda du behöver ta i din mun är ölet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10.2%. Creamed coffee aroma, hint of smoke. Black colour. Small dark brown head. The flavour starts off sweet with a fruity and sweet hop note. Turns salty and roasted with a late cream note. Late alcohol bitterness along with the bitterness of roast barley. Powerful, but fairly well-balanced. Gets rather boozy when nearing the end of the bottle.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Narwhal 2012. Aroma’s of roasted nuts, molasses, chocolate, caramel, as it warms alcohol. Huge aroma profile. Head has dissipated by the time I looked at it. leaves a medium lacing. mmMmmm. coffee aroma’s at first taste. This is how a stout should taste. So much malt. low sweetness, low to medium bitters. Full bodied, thick/oily texture. A long finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013 bottle. Opaque very dark brown, tan head. Nose is lots of dark fruit, prune, plum, raisin, chocolate, milky coffee, roasted malt, bit plasticky, cocoa dusky. Taste is dark dried fruits, prune, raisin, sultana, plums, but the cocoa chocolate is quite dominating. Malty with dark fruit. Decent but not my favourite imperial stout style. Bit to much cocoa and lactic plasticky.
