COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a blending beer of Barrier’s Morticia Imperial Stout in a non barrel-aged version and Amager’s Hr. Frederiksen Imperial Stout, with an added twist of Kenyan coffee and smoked malt.

English: Throughout the 18th century The Alistair Smythe Burial and Cremation Company had a thriving business based in Hempstead, Long Island NY. Immigrants brought in illness and disease galore, and personal hygiene was still not really regarded as anything other than a waste of time. Let’s be honest, people died like flies and the Smythe morticians had their hands full taking care of the dead. But with the 19th century approaching things were starting to change. Everyone who met the new owner – Alistair’s oldest son Walter - described him as the perfect mortician, compassionate and caring. But only Walter knew the blood red reality of the company accounts. The Long Islanders had started using soap, the roads were getting paved and even the immigrants seemed healthier. People simply didn’t die at the rate they used to. Walter, being a practical man, realized he had to make his own customers. Soon he had formed a band of nighttime gravediggers who would raid fresh graves and dump the corpses from a row boat in the narrow channels south of Oceanside. For years, the local police wondered about the numerous dead bodies that washed ashore on Parsonage Island and The East Channel Islands. But since they were impossible to identify and apparently missed by no-one the police quietly closed the case. Walter Smythe died a rich man, famed for his abilities with a row boat. A model citizen, and a much respected mortician.

Heavy black oil body and firm beige foam on top. Heavy motor oil and coffee aroma with hints of baker's chocolate, licorice, Norwegian charcoal. Flavour is heavy and sweet syrup witj bitter molasses notes, yet alcohol is quiet in the background. A nice big sipper going on here.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av choklad, kaffe, mörkt bröd, mörka bär och torkad frukt med toner av lakrits och rostad malt. Fin fruktighet och sötma, viss syrlighet, rund och len med fint avslut.

Draught. Black in color with a tan head. Roasted malts, dark coffee and mild campfire in aroma. Bitter chocolate and some roasted coffee notes in taste. Some vanilla like spicyness too. Kinda soft and smooth too, nice drinkability as well. Roasted and bitter chocolatey finish.

Vignale (4454) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2018
Flaska från SB. Svart med fingerhögt brunbeiget skum med stora bubblor. Doft av kaffe, toffee, laktos. Smooth mellanstor kropp, något lättare för en IS. Lätt sötma i smaken med toner av brunt socker och kaffe. Sötman och beskan växer till sig något, men överlag ändå en torrare, välrostad IS.

On tap at Sori Taproom, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out medium roast, light vanilla and some cocoa. Flavour is quite smooth, with rich dark chocolate, some vanilla and subtle roast. Rich and velvety on the palate. Very nice impie.

anstei (3126) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 13, 2018
Bottle, courtesy of ttt. Aroma is strongly roasted coffee, a bit burnt and some ash, little liquorice. Body is heavy, really sweet, but mostly heavily roasted and a bit burnt coffee. A bit boozy, but also lots of candy and diabetes. Really good!
