3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cL bottle. Pours deep dark brown with a dense and light brown head. Roasted malt aroma. Notes of chocolate, coffee and with a mild orange fruity note. Flavour starts roasted but also sweet. Mild fruity note intermixing with a soft chocolate flavour. Smooth mouthfeel as well. Goes into a really solid roasted and bitter finish and a mild warming alcohol note. Very nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(On tap) I believe 7,5% ABV in my version. Pitch black, perhaps with a wee tint of red. Light brown head that never collapses completely. Lovely notes of roasted - hard roasted - malts adding the typical notions of chocolate and coffee. Some vanilla in there too. Bitter, but not overly so. 040305

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled (thanks henrikb). Black colour, with yellowish brown, longlasting head. Lovely roasted malt, licorace and caramel in aroma, with weak hints of ash. Flavour is strong roasted malt, smoke from wet wood and ashes. Also some licorace and black coffee noteable. Especially the aftertaste gets wetwood smokeish. Very nice Imperial stout, which hides it’s 8.4% very well. Slightly watery palate, which is among the only weak details in the beer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen. Very black. Really roasty and smokey, almost rubbery. Full bodied. Salty and rich on licorice, very bitter finish. Flavourful and tasty, but not as balanced as some Wintercoat beers. Bigger is not always better.

Pitch black with bubbly white head. Fine roast & hoppy aroma. Filling body. Good roasted taste with apleasant amount of hops. Some leather notes (typical wintercoat) but I can overcome it in this one. Nice!

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 2008-01-28, cask at Cockney Pub, Århus, 8.5% ABV, 7-5-8-4-16=40
Black color; creamy head. It has a nice aroma, where some delicate roasted malt meets a light fruitness. The mouthfeel and body are very good, far from being too sticky; there is a good roasted malt flavor, some sweetness and caramel, at times a light fruitness, and a very light smoke touch. Balanced final, and behind the chocolate and roasted malt is possible to detect a good hop. Very good, extremely drinkable.
2005-02-12, draught, 8% ABV, 7-5-9-4-16=41
Black color. Very nice coffeish aroma, with a light smokyness and tar. Wonderful taste, full, with roasted malt, coffee, malt, caramel, light liquorice, very light phenol and a strong ending bitterness. Excellent!
