scurissima con schiuma marrone/beige a grana media/grossolana che non dura molto..aroma squisito: frutta sotto spirito,alcool,caffè,esattamente quello che mi aspetto da una imperial stout,forse un pò troppo dominato dall’alcool..gusto complesso,ma forse non bilanciatissimo..sicuramente nella parte iniziale fa da padrone il dolce,sia in bocca che in gola..si attraversa una fase alcolica e si finisce con un amaro da tostatura molto intenso e duraturo..il corpo è elevato e la birra ha una consistenza molto oleosa..una splendida imperial stout,ma forse un pò sbilanciata..bottiglia bevuta dopo 1 anno e mezzo di invecchiamento

*from old note* Trevlig IS med framförallt mycket rostat kaffe, välbalanserad och inte sötma som är over the top. Riktigt trevlig!

Bottle. Pour is black with a small caramel frothy head, aroma is toffee, coffee, sweet, alcohol. Taste is toffee, chocolate, sweet, malty, syrup, warming alcohol notes and a pleasantly bitter burnt coffee finish. Outrageous

33 cl systembolaget. En öl som smakar mycket men även mycket alkohol. Detta drar ner betyget något.

Black with a thick brown head, aromas of cocoa and roasted malts. Thick, oily and warm in the mouth, tastes of coffee, cocoa, malts, molasses, with a slight hoppy aftertaste and a nice bitterness running through. Masks the ABV well, but still has the lovely alcohol warmth on the finish. Not sickly or overly sweet like some imperial stouts can be. Really superb. One to savour over a couple of hours.
