Blind tasting at sk8vikings porter / stout tasting, beer no 5. Pours dark black with finer thick creamy brown head. Liqourice and chocolate aroma. Thick mouthfeel. Thick roasted malt, chocolate and liqourice flavour, quite alcohol heavy. Chocolate finish, slight coffee. Very nice, but lacks a bit of refinement. 7-4-8-4-15 3.8
There is a lot of alcohol in the aroma of this beer, but also coffee and prunes. The color is pitch black and it has a fine disappearing head. The flavor is lovely; coffee bitterness and hops on a sour background. It ends on a very dry hoppy note. Really a good beer. joergen (28772) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006

Bottled. Thick black colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is sweet malts, coffee, chocolate, licirice, alcohol and some sour smoked wood. Also a bit vanilla as it warms up. Flavour is very much the same kicking you in the face while drinking. A very nicely balanced big ABV Imperial stout, which still manages to be both powerful yet so smooth and nice.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2015 Bottle at Toms Ultimate Glasgow Tasting ... Deep deep black ... little thin compaired to others ... Little rougher ... lot and lots of coffee lots of roast malts. I suspect that on its own it might have scored higher but since there is sucha glut of Imp Stouts it just doesnt cut the mustard for me. 3.4

Extremely black, intransparent, rich creamy brown head. Big aroma of licorice and coffee. Full bodied is a vast understatement. Sweet, roasty and really salty, thick mouthfeel, some molasses.
Finishes bitter and salty. Probably would gain from spending some time in the cellar, but who can wait? Thanks Gusler! madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011

Rich smoothy creamy stout. Offset by a distinct bitter coffee finish. Initially hard work but it grows and grows as it warms up. Pleasantly bitter finish.
