33 cl bottle - big thanks to brewczar for the trade; jet black with foamy tan head; slight roast and very sweet; tons of cream and smoothness in the texture; no hotness whatsoever as this was a delight to drink; almost lemony flavor to it; sweet spice and dank fruit as well; doesn’t feel 13% at all; texture is very unique

My Rating # 2000. 33cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Pours black with a creamy brown lasting head. Nose & taste is filled with chocolate, roasted coffee & dark dried fruits - very balanced, vinous & pleasant. Plenty of hops to be noticed in the end. Palate is smooth & soft like velvet. Rather uncomplicated - just

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Traded with Beerbiker for a Casablanca pale lager, thanks for another great deal!
Black with an enourmous brown head inviting to be eaten with a spoon. Aroma is a mix between roasted dark chocolate and sweet milk chocolate along with cane suger and some subtly fruity notes. Flavor is plesant and wellbalanced. The suger sticks to your lips and goes well with the complex sweet and roasted bitter malty body. The yeast makes this imp stout very refined and unique so overall it was a great experience!

(Draught, Keg III Erasmus, at Pikkulintu on 2008-08-22. Thank you Markku!) Pitch black. Small brown head. Chocolate, vanilla, alcohol and roastedness in nose. Full-bodied palate with medium carbonation. Chocolate, vanilla, roastedness, little coffee and light bitterness. Vanilla flavours and aromas grow stronger when beer gets warmer. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Sparky27!! Thanks! Pours pitch black with a thick dark tan head. Has little aroma for the style. What I do smell is dark roasted malts. But its very subtle. Has a heavy mouthfeel. When I swallow this its so heavy I have to push it down. I get a sharp alcohol taste just after it goes down, then I taste bitter chocolate, dark malt, dark coffee, subtle caramel, and finishes with a bitter flavor that may come from the chocolate or possibly hops or both. This is a complex brew that I am grateful to have tried. Thanks Eric!!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours opaque and completely black. A giant, staying, creamy, cappucino-brown head. Great duration. Aroma is a bit underwhelming for a 13 % beer. Roasted tones, some soft plums and a touch of dark Guetamala coffee. Medium carbonation, but only a mild creaminess. But when aroma and mouthfeel was a bit of a let-down, the flavour is stunningly complex. Let tartness at first, some liquorice giving game. Lots of hard roasted malts and a truly wonderful, lingering aftertaste. Soft viniousity and dark, dry, chocolate. There is hops - a lot of hops - in here, but it never does anything but balance out the wonderful flavour. In a few years, the aroma might have settled, and this will be a world-class beer - now it is just behind the best.
