omhper (19638) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2008
Bottled at tasting with Greg Koch at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Near opaque black, brown head. Burnt choclatey nose. Dryish with medium-full body, lesser than what you’d expect from a 9.2% stout. The mouthfeel is clean and rounded. Dark chocolate dominates all the way. It’s intensely roasty with the slightest hint of prunes to add fruitiess. FInishes with mid-intensity salty bitterness. A good straightforward beer, much less complicated than the long name makes you think it is.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 2009-06-12, blind tasting at Papsø’s, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Black color; medium head. Light aroma of roasted malt and alcohol, very light wood. Good body strength and round mouthfeel, strong chocolate and roasted malt flavor, inky salty, with strong bitterness and nice alcohol warmth. Very solid, good.

2008-09-09, draught at the Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas, 6-3-7-3-14=33
Black color. Poor aroma, light roasted malt and chocolate. The mouthfeel is quite soft, with mild coffee flavor, chocolate; difficult to detect oatmeal characteristics. Side-to-side with a Drake’s Imperial Stout and Deschutes Imperial Porter, this is by far the least interesting.
