Szinte már fekete sör, jó kis barna habbal, ami hosszan bírja a tetején. Csokis-kávés, kicsit gyümölcsös, citrusos íz és illat tökéletes harmóniája jellemzi, egy élmény a fogyasztása! Bárhol, bármikor!

Been looking forward to this one for quite some time, and chose to enjoy it as the first beer that evening to feel and taste its full potential. Appearance is a definate 5, poored the pitch black liquid into a relativly big glass resulting in an absolutly enormous head. As the head diminished (something that happened extremly slow) it left a hilly landscape on top of the black beer. Intense aroma that i find it hard to describe well enough to justify. Tons of different roasted malty notes, along with american hobs making this one a true sniffer. The first zip almost hurt my chin mussels, chocking the tastebuds. Very intense bitterness brough by both hobs and roasted malt, salty and sticky. Glad i bought a few of these so i’ll be able to taste again. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2008
Totally black with dark beige firm head.
Leafy aroma with notes of coffee, oil, spices and chocolate.
Really bitter flavour with notes of cream, cofee, milkchocolate, hops and coconut. Fruity with alcoholic notes. Medicinal bitter ending. A truly magnificent imp.stout. Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Hoppy nose, Cenennial they say, citrusy but not sweet at all. Loads of chocolate perfume. Dark cacoa powder, shaved 70% dark chocolate, a touch of coffee and then a raspberry truffle. Very complex. Rich mouthfeel is by no means from the crankcase and oily viscousity is not dominating. Suprisingly finesseful for such a big beer and abv. Almost a year old, it could go for another year or so I say. However, this beer is open, layered and very generous. Raspberry and Blackberry continues to whisper as roasted nuts and lava cake twirl around an espresso with a lemon twist. The texture is just sinful, velvety and somehow refreshing just when the palate needs relief. Seamless construction, with roasted malts and hop bitternes elevated and drying at the same time. Excellent, as good as they come. MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Hints of raisins and dates in the aroma. Hints of alcohol and sweet malt are present as well. Pours dark brown/black with dark tan head. The head is dense like a meringue. Very nice dark malt flavor mixed with alcohol. Very smooth and easy drinking. This sets the bar for Imperial Stouts.

Bottle. Drank this immediately after the Fru. Even thicker. Rich, rich licorice aroma. Amazingly delicious, a true imperial version of the Fru, with the one of the most robust, solid dark roast characters I ever encountered. Masterpiece.

Bottle. Roasted, licoroce, dark chocolate and some vanilla. This is just an amazing beer. Where is the limit for a topscore? I dont know, but this is very close to it. If i am impressed as this next time I will re rate to 5. pfr (121) - København, DENMARK - APR 15, 2007

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 On tap at Ølbaren. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head. Roasted and malty with notes of coffee, chocolate, dark and dried fruits, cocoa and hops. Very well balanced.
Had this at a blindtasting where I rated it somewhat higher - so I’m gonna change my ratings from:

Draft @ Ølbaren. Pitch black with a great, enourmous beautiful brown head! Aroma is coffee, liqourice, smoke, US hops, dark chocolate and black currant. Great flavour where the bitterness sets in immediately. Beside that there’s roasted malts, chocolate, espresso, liqourice and long bitter and dry finish. World class!
