3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. How had I not ticked this? Sleeping on the job. Black in color with a small brown head. This malt-forward monster is bold – with notes of baker’s cocoa, molasses, and dark roasted coffee. Oops, that was their description, but it does apply. Molasses, dark chocolate, and sludge from the bottom of your coffee cup. Both aromatic and flavorful. Rather thick on the palate, par for the course. This is good but we’ve seen this jig played out before.

Bottle. Narwhal is fantastic. Nice black pour with thick creamy head. Not much on the nose, a little roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is roast, coffee, little chocolate, and a nice dry finish.

Pours black and has a medium tan creamy head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and wood. Taste was coffee and semi-sweet chocolate forward. I also got some wood with a sweet and smokiness on the tongue. Quite good and was also in the mix a 6 section so I won’t complain. Def full bodied and filling.

Flaska från SB. Svart med brun skumkrona. Smak av mörk choklad, kaffe, salmiak och lite portvin. Torr, syrlig och besk. Hade önskat lite mer sötma för en bättre balans.

Heavy cocoa and roasted coffee aroma. Heavy black body with a tan foamy thin head. The first taste tells you it means business with it’s intensity. Roasted cocoa and coffee blast with a warming sensation as it goes down your throat reminds you that this is an imperial strength stout. Leaves with a dry clean finish and if you pay attention you’ll pick up the sweetness of molasses. Definitely a winter warmer type of brew.
