Sötét szín, nem túl tartós bézs hab. Kávés és pörkölt malátás illat. Enyhén keserű, kellemes itóka jól elrejtett alkohollal. A karácsonyi ízt nem nagyon éreztem ki belőle. Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2017
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief foamy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with black rye bread, coffee, cacao, burnt sugar, liquorice, hints of tar and some spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, black rye bread, cacao, burnt sugar, tarry hints of smoke, liquorice, dark fruit and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Rounded mouthfeel and very well balanced, with alcohol just lurking in the background. Excellent beer. Demens (443) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 17, 2017
0,33l bottle. Very thich dark colour with long lasting beige head. Aroma: Very soft and gentle roasted coffee with dark chocolate and vanilla notes. With some time also some matured chedar come in. Taste: Very sweet, rich malty start and you can feel all the roasted malts in the tone. Than a roasty pleasnt bitter mouthfeel comes. Chocolate mousse, nuts, lots of rosted flavours. Very-very tasty a dessert by itself. The alcohol is very well hidden it’s soft and smooth as heaven. Full body with soft carbonation. Long lasting pleasent, medium bitter (and roasty) finish. The most elegant and smooth imperial stout that I ever tasted.

Bottle. It pours very dark brown with a creamy beige head. Sweet roasted aroma with notes of chocolate, light coffee and a whiff of smoke. The flavor is roasted with significantly more smoked notes. Bitter roasted with chocolate and light tar. Great stuff. mike_77 (6669) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
