Very nice bold aroma with hints of mollasses and Coffee. Deep taste with Long lingering aftertaste Franzen (594) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
Dark chocolate is dominant in the aroma, but there are some vineous alcoholic notes as well as some faint burnt wood and tobaco tones. Almost pitch black with beige head. A bit sweet but not much, mostly is pretty well balances between sweetness and bitterness. None of them stick out. The chocolate is the main player in the taste as well but burnt wood and coffe is pretty apperant.. Finish is a bit dark chocolate bitter. Full body, creamy, average carbonation. A very good and well balanced imperial stout. MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Backlog. While it doesn’t quite live up to it’s bigger brother (Pride) this is still a good beer well worth the try. martin00sr (4040) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2013
Sort, med fyldigt, tæt skum. Aroma: mørk lakrids. Røg, ristet malt og mere lakrids, god skarp og tør bitterhed mod slutningen og i eftersmag.

Iirc this was some sort of aged version. Which was apparent- salty licorice, with vinous malty dark roasty flavours. Nice.
Bottled. Pours black in color, bubbly tan head. Dark barrels woodyness and some light vinous notes in aroma. Roasted coasted, light chocolate notes. Feels a bit thin, not that much of flavor here. Some roasted notes towards the net. Hermod (7879) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2013
