Dark brown with fine tan head. First whiff of the aroma was red wine, but it quickly almost disappears and the aroma becomes malty sweet, chocolate. Taste is sweet, soft, caramel, butter, a little liquorice. Nice brew, but a little to sweet for my liking. Would categorize it as an imperial stout.

fles 33cl kleur: donkerbruin/zwart, creme schuimkraag, schuimt uit de fles, maar in het glas is het zo verdwenen. geur: koffie, chocolade, fruit smaak: koffie, chocolade, rood fruit, heel licht zoet, en bitter. Goede balans

A pretty decent, though very basic imperial stout. Chocolate and licorice dominate. Some astringency tempered by the nice sweet finish.

olio (6273) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a medium sized off-white head. Some cocoa and malts coming through on the nose, faint chocolate and caramel, fair amount of hops too, maybe a bit of soy somewhere on the background. Very creamy and fluffy palate, lots of caramel and some marshmallow, slightly syrupy and sugary, dark malts and faint cocoa. A tad too sweet but alcohol is very well hidden, then again the strong carbonation kind of waters up the beer a bit too.

330 mml bottle tasted on 13/08/2014. Almost deep black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of cola, coffee and liquorice. On the mouth a lot of coffee, chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits and caramel. Aftertaste is nice. Carbonation and body are medium. ¿Imperial Stout? I don´t know...Next one please!

Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a beige head. Roasted malt and liquorice in the nose. Very intense aroma. Nice intense taste. Hints of tar, rich and at the same time not overwhelming. Balanced bitter finish with a nice length. Great beer.
