2016 version. A brooding, heavyweight stout, crammed with intense, deep-roast specialty malts. A recipe 8 months in the making with multiple edits before we were happy to proceed, in the end it was a delight to brew.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2018 330ml bottle, B498, 2017 version, bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. The oily pour reveals a fading one-finger thick espresso head leaving crocheted lacing on the glass. Deep black body. Rich aroma of dark chocolate and molasses, nicely roasted. Solid roasted malt-driven dark chocolate taste profile, hints of dark fruits beneath. Bitter roasted coffee finish, mouth filling and smooth. Just the kind of slow sipper I like to enjoy on a dark Saturday eve. (Tromsø 17.02.2018).

Pours an intense black colour. Tadte is of deep roasted malts followed by intense hops. Thick and oily on the palate. Very good

Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, dried fruits, wood, leather and berries. Black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. Overall a nice Imperial Stout, with loads of bitterness from the roasted malts. Plesant warming alcohol in the back.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Merket 2017 men samme prosentstyrke som i 2016. (Bottled 16Nov17). Svart. Høyt brunt skum som daler veldig sakte og etterlater lett lacing. Direkte pent! Aroma av sjokolade & lakris. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken tørr sjokolade. Balansert. Blir veldig tørr & moreish etter hvert. Toppøl!

Bottle at Speciaalbier Café De Markies, Leeuwarden. Aroma is extremely roasty with coffee, syrupy notes, dark chocolate, roasted and burnt malt, soft vanilla, charcoal, notes of dark fruits, mild liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet and rather heavily roasted bitter. Body is full. Very nice, potent flavour and aroma, bold Stout.

Lukrecja, czekolada, trochę cytrusów i kwiecistości w aromacie. W smaku czekolada, lukrecja, cytrusy i kwiecistość od chmielu, paloność. Słodycz jest umiarkowana. Textura oleista, średnia goryczka, długi palony posmak. Kojarzy się z black IPA.

Shared at a drinking session with Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran in the summer of 2017. Thanks! Black with a brown head. Roasty, cocoa, nutty, liquorice, dried fruit. Dry, metallic from alcohol. Medium body, thick texture. Not as complex as expected.
