.75 bottle. Black. But not totally impenetrable. Soft roasty chocolate. Surprisingly light tho. Easy to down. But I’m missing some of the intensity IS usually have. Dangerous drink.

SperkeleForce (531) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle 75 CL. Pours black with huge foaming brown white head. Notes of milk chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts. Very light for an imperial stout. Interesting, could be more of complex and stronger taste. Hides the alcohol very well, abv almost non existent in taste.

Unde (344) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Clear reddish brown stout with big head on top. Aroma has dark chocolate, cocoa and some fresh fruits. Soft chocolate and some vanilla in the taste, with surprising amount of fruits for a imperial stout. Nice amount of roasted malts, quite sweet syrup feel. Light body for a imperial stout but low carbonation makes this enjoyable beer. Fresh stout.
