3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a really dark brown with a medium brown head that fades into a small film but at least leaves good lacing. Nose is of fusels or at least really hot alcohol, chocolate and coffee. "In your face" you might say. Some licorice also. Taste is of buttery caramel, milk chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. A lot of alcohol also, hot hot hot. No ash, good! Pretty bitter, not sure if from malt or hops but at least it isn’t acrid. It almost goes without saying that body is full. Carbonation is on the lower side reinforcing the smooth mouthfeel. Overall a good imperial stout but not a crazy good one. Way too intense and rough, I wouldn’t necessarily buy again.

STRONG!! Every taste that is characteristic to Imperial Stouts is amplified in this big 9.47% beer. The malt, the roast and the alcohol are just perfect! (for me...!)

Pours an inky brown/black with a tan head leaving a little lacing, little thin for an imperial stout. Roasted malt and chocolate nose with a scent of coffee. Chocolate and coffee flavor in the front, with nice malty backbone and a bit if current and even a little bit of hops. Excellent beer, drink it, enjoy it.

Flaska från systemet - Doftar lite champagne. Kolsvart med en lätt beige skumkrona som dessvärre försvinner fort. Tydliga brända toner men man kan även känna lakrits och lite kaffe. Den har faktiskt en tydlig beska som jag misstänker kommer från den mörka malten.
