3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black color with beige foam. Sweet notes in the nose. Chocolate and sweet (cristal sugar sweetness) with very little coffee in the taste. Even some slight cassis fruit notes in there. Satisfying calm taste with a lot of diabetes potential in the aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black color with tan head. A bit yeasty, chocolaty (sweeter chocolate), vanilla, quite weird sweetness there. Not a classical ImpStout. More of a Porter?

Bottle at SinH4?s Goodbye Event. Roasty aroma, but not that well defined and not so sweet. Taste is very sweet though, almost like a glacing. Not much else though.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee, anise, some Belgian yeast notes into a bit of vanilla, slight earthy notes as well. Taste was big anise and ashy, smoke into a bit of caramel, roast, some dark chocolate, finishing fairly roasted, slightly sweet.

2014 edition, 330ml bottle. Dark brown body with a huge tan head. Took ages to pour. Aromas of liquorice, soy, roasted malt and coffee. Flavor consists of roasted malt, nuts, coffee and some earthy notes. Feels a bit too young.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown, light for an imperial. My bottle was undercarbonated as well, almost flat. Not a flattering beer to hold up to the light with the dirty brown and almost no carbonation.
Aroma is dark fruits and some chocolate, actually sort of an ESB smell to it with richer dark malts, not surprised to see that it was brewed with british hops.
Taste once again seems like a juiced up ESB with chocolate. Can not say i hate it but it´s middle of the road at best.
Bottle from SB.

Clear, very dark brown. Tiny offwhite head. Aroma has licorice, malt and alcohol. Malty flavour with licorice, raisins and warming alcohol. Long lasting, controlled bitterness and sligthly boozy finish.

Flaska. Lite källarkänsla fina fina doftaromer. Smaken mycket med olika nyanser. Känns väldigt lätt o frisk för att vara en Imperial stout. Eftersmaken är mycket bra o ligger som god matta i munnen om nu mattor kan ligga i munnen. Smuttaröl.
