Opaque black beer with a short lived chocolate coloured head. Soft palate. Very light for the style. Frothy and creamy. Soft dark malt. Subtle undertone of red fruit, cherry and a little plum. Light coffee and toasted malt notes. Traces of banana and bubblegum in the finish. All very well joined up in to a light Imperial Stout.
750 ml bottle at Birreria Paradiso. Black hole black with a large dark maroon head. Aroma of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Full bodied, taste of seventy percent cacao with an extraordinarily long burnt espresso finish. Amazing brew. cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2008

Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Transparently black with dense pale brown head. Aroma of aniseed and ouzo. The surprsingly slender and vital body gives it extreme drinkability for a beer it’s size. The flavours are concentrated Salty chocoalte is first in line. It has also grainy malt, licorice and tar. Underneath there are vague fruity notes, raisin perhaps. So unassaulting that it takes a while to realize just how intense and complex it is. One of the best new imperial stouts I’ve had in a long while!
