hirigalzkar (3203) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. A quite agressive imperial stout (dark chocolate, licorice etc.) with
lots of smoked, sausage kind of notes. The smokeiness is too heavy in my opinion and hides the other qualities of the beer. SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Black with dark brown ring of head. Aroma of ash, smoke, bitter chocolate and beef jerky. Flavor has some light smoke, charcoal, chocolate, campfire, tar. Very nice! FatPhil (16381) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 18, 2010
Tap (White Horse, Parson’s Green, London)Holy (837) - GERMANY - DEC 16, 2010
7 Massively meaty beef stock aroma.
4 Black, tan ring head.
8 Rich roasty coffee taste, gently bitter from burntness, but not astringent.
4+ Ludicrously full palate, slick and smooth. Just a gentle hint of carbonation.
17 Covers the alcohol well, but you can tell it’s a big beer.

[3249-20100802] Tap. Rich chocolate hints and coffee notes in the aroma with an underlying fruity roasted date. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Toasted chocolate and roast coffee flavour has a long sweet chocolate liqueur aftertaste. Full body. Very tasty!
