3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber received in a trade from Drink4Satan, thanks! Pours very thick. A lot hoppier than I expected in both the nose and the taste. The hops have the edge over the malts in the taste profile, and I like that. Very unusual for a stout. Finish is very long - aftertaste lingers for quite some time. Unusual Imperial Stout, but good to see someone breaking the mold.

22 oz bottle. Bottled on Feb 2015. 12.5%. Thanks Timo Aaah!
Dark reddish brown color with a tiny tan head.
Dark hops, sweetness, mild coffee, roasted malt and ashy dryness in the aroma.
The flavor is hops, moderate bitterness, roasted malt, darkness and ashy dryness.
Balanced, softly carbonated, rich and flavorsome.
12.5% is not that evident. Big beer indeed.

75 cl bottle (12.5% abv) @ Timo A. Bottled on 02/2015
Pours black color with a small head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts, cocoa, faint vanilla, cola notes, licorice and maybe even some salmiac. Flavor is bitter malts with roast notes, licorice, coffee and faint syrup, mild hops too. Some alcohol burn at the end, not disturbing. Very nice and refined.
