Brown to black beer with brownish head but it disappeared quickly. Roasted malts, dark chocolate and some coffee on the nose. Full body, roasted almost burned malt flavors with dark chocolate. After taste is herb type of hop bitterness with roasted drying mouth feel. Not the best IS but overall good.

Tap @ SOPP Helsinki 2013. Pours black with a wooden tinge. Small, latte-colored head. Aroma is rather sweet, a lot of roast, dab of coffee, plenty of chocolate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown, cola black, thin khaki head. Roastiness and lingon berry on the nose. Very, very soft mouth feel. Silky smooth. I love the texture! Not a lot of bitterness. Actually quite nice to have an imperial stout without huge bitterness. Roasty, soft, liquorice, sweetness. Lovely!
