3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle purchased at Learyís Fine Wines. Neck stamp shows bottled on 09/29/2014. Opaque with thick lasting tan head around the snifter. Aroma is charred malts, chocolate, mild burnt coffee and light pine.
Flavor is deep roasted notes with chocolate upfront. Stern rye malt thought out the sip, mild roasted coffee bean and displaying a moderate pine hop in the finish. Lingering roast and pine after then sip. Big hop profile to balance the roast and sweetness. Texture does give a creamy feel with the ABV showing mild warmth after the swallow. This brew is by far the best I have sampled from this brewery.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours quite dark, black in glass, big dense tanned head. Smell of chocolate, hints of roast, some coffee, dark malts. Medium sweet, spicy rye, chocolate, mocca, dark malts, roast, medium bitter finish, resins and coffee. I liked the mocca flavors, and the spicy rye, but itís not all that different from the other imperial stouts out there.
