Turboninja (227) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle@Ohara’s, tampere, Finland. Medium smooth aroma of licorice and cream. Pitch black color with small creamy light beige head. Strong/medium taste with coffee, roasted malts and some bitter note in top of everything. Maybe spruce. Averagely balanced. Medium taste spectrum and long aftertaste with roasted malts. Strong, smooth body with medium carbonation. Overall high quality and soft, though bitterness doesn’t fit to it.

Bottle. Pours a luminous black with a sticky brown head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, honey and licorice. Flavors are dark chocolate, vanilla, licorice, coffee, cream and a hint of spruce. Creamy mouthfeel. Gorgeous beer; decadent flavors; rich, malty and delicious. Velvety. Wow.

From bottle. Incredibly dark and opaque with minimal head. Taste of espresso was way too much for my liking and lacked creamy smoothness you might like in a stout. I won’t have another from bottle

Doofgoblin (441) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2015
The storm of hops and malt is great! Aroma is dark and rich malt with his of dark fruit and a hand full of raisins. Taste is rich dark roasted malt with hints of chocolate and bitter espresso. The most interesting part is hop hoppy it is...and bitter! Finish is super bitter. Wow. what a storm...

Vestergaard (958) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle at Burspraks Blind Imperial Stout Tasting. Pours a pitch black, with a lovely brown head. Aroma is boozy with caramel, roasty malts, slight "skumbanan", licorice and "bolcheblanding". Taste is boozy, bitter roasty dry and with a candy sweetness. Something weird, but overall pretty good. Low carb and a sticky body.
