3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderful aroma of dark malt. The taste is of raisins, dark chocolate, dark coffee and soy sauce. Bitterness to the aftertaste is okay but not much more. Fills the mouth well and for a long while. I think it feels like something made in this beer only. Vintage 2013. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle of 2011 at home. Dark brown color with small beige head. Aroma is light malty, caramel, dried fruits, light chocolate scent and some alcohol. Taste begins light malty sweet it becomes salty and it finishes more bitter. Light to medium body, with oily feel and average carbonation. This doesnt remind me an Imperial Stout, it’s more like something between a brown ale, a light barley wine and a schwarzbier! It tasted more like an Imperial Stout the first time I had it on tap at 3 Sma Rum in 2012.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours a thick black with slight head. Gutsy aroma of roasted malts, dark toffee, coffee and morels. Palate is balanced with very light bitterness, quite deep, medium bodied and semi-sweet flavour. Rather short finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good, quite sweet and gentle imperial stout. Maybe not as good as I expected after all this hype around this beer, or maybe this 2013 version just wasn’t as good as the previous ones.
