Hele donker bruine kleur. Ruikt naar donkere chocolade. Stevig biertje. Goede body. Ondanks de iets bittere smaak, toch vrij zoete smaak. Heerlijk biertje voor een koude winteravond. Voor de zomer prefereer ik een iets frisser biertje.

Beżowa piana była wysoka, jednak szybko opadła. Piwo ma nieprzejrzyście czarną barwę. Aromat nie jest już tak skory to ataku, raczej trzeba się doszukiwać nut typowych dla stout-ów. Pojawiło się kakao z cukrem i karmel, tak na pierwszy niuch zapach skojarzył mi się ze schwarzbier-em. Gdzieś tam w tle delikatnie pojawiła się czekolada w płynie i lekki powiew rozpuszczalnikowy. W smaku piwo jest podobnie płaskie, wyczuć możemy głównie kakao i lekko słodką, mleczną czekoladę w płynie. W tle delikatny przypalony karmel. Finisz to niska goryczka, wydaje się być alkoholowego pochodzenia, Po każdym łyku w gardle pozostaje posmak kakao z cukrem.

Dark beer with some mahogany hues and a foamy beige head. Nose of light toast and and some caramel corn. Toffee sweetness with some puffed wheat, sweetened coffee, lightly burnt toast and chocolate in th finish. Decent imperial stout if a bit light for the style.

Maistiainen Maljassa 3/2015. A bit too sweet and fruity for me, still not bad beer of course. Not as solid as imperial stout could be.

Bottle; pours very dark brown with a beige head; aroma of chocolate, roast malt, and coffee with hints of dark fruits; taste is mostly bitter but has a little bit of sweetness with coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate; has a bitter finish; not bad but could be better

thanatosti (1081) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl. Clear dark brown with a minimal beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and more in general roasted malts. Taste is sweet-bitter with the typical bitter aftertaste. A nice imperial stout, lighter and more accessible than most IRS powerhouses.
