Tap at Taphouse. Pours a pitch black with a tan head. Classic imp. Aroma, a lot of roasted malt, coffee, a bit of chocolate and hops. Taste is almost unpleasantly bitter, that really lingers. Tastes like some of mikkellers early imperial stouts. Too bitter for my taste, at that says a lot. Rask0lnikov (1471) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 25, 2017

Nice roasty aroma, plenty of fruitiness, raisins. Black, small tight brown head. Toasty taste, fairly burnt, but no astringency. Full palate, decent carbonation, keeps it pretty drinkable, additionally the alcohol is reasonably well covered, which helps. Finish is crazily bitter, but in the context of this beer, that works very well. Very good one.
