On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel and roasted coffee beans. Sweet, alty inset, replaced by intense roasty notes, ending sweet with discernible touches of honey and warming alcohol presence. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours pitch black color with a small, rapidly dissipating beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, mild red wine notes, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavor of dark berries, roasted malts, tar, honey, some dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some soy. Some mildly disturbing tangy notes here, hoped for smoother experience. Quite complex and tasty but a bit off. Somewhat disappointing.

37,5 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 11.12.2022
Aroma is a bit odd and light with rubber and honey. Flavour has stinging whiskey, vanilla, salty licorice, wood and peaty notes. Honey in the background. Heavy stuff, too strong on whiskey.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Thanks olio. Pours a black colour with a white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, honey, salt, soy sauce and hay. Flavour of roasted malts, alcohol, strong pungent honey, wood, salty licorice, salt, nuts and hay. Full bodied and a pungent, wooden, honey finish. Alcohol comes through a lot. Not quite ready yet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Synthetic cork; bb 11/12/22
Black color with medium sized brownish head. The aroma is powerful, balanced and complex; fine roasted malts, oak, dark chocolate, a touch of liquorice, followed by some dark fruits. Full bodied, but also with too high alcohol perception; the flavor is essential roasted malt, without richness, without dark chocolate, with some tobacco and liquorice, strong bitterness.
Boozy and uncomplicated, expensive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle from Bierkompass
Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, licorice, hints of smoke, ash, honey and stingy bourbon notes. Taste is roasted, carbonated and sugary with notes of syrup, hints of bourbon, wood and honey. Finish is syrupy, roasty and sweetish with notes of licorice, wood and hints of honey. Okay, quite good imperial stout.

Bought this 12.7 oz bottle at Cheese shop in Des Moines. Black pour with brown head. Sweet and oily aroma and can smell the booze. Crazy taste. Nut/chocolate/sweet and even slight fruit taste. Couldn't pick up the honey. Super good beer

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is household cleaner and ginger. Dark chocolate coffee notes, tint of honey. Nice consistency. Not too creamy, but thick enough to feel like you’re having a light milkshake. Some spice, toasty, hints of caramel and vanilla there. Not too sweet. Heavy in the belly like any fine stout. Yum.

375 ml bottle kindly shared by my beer pal, Ole Anders. Black body with a creamy light brown film. Roasted tones, honey, malts and raisins on the nose. Full bodied, roasted, boozy and bitter. Smooth to drink.
