Bottle, 65cl. Opaque with a deep reddish hue and a frothy brown head. Fresh fruity aromas with hints of roasted caramel, ginger, nutmeg and other spices, eggnog. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Moderate sweet malty character into a bitter spicy and roasted finish. Very pleasant.

Enteogenisk (162) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2016
Highly underrated brew. The aroma is dense dark chocolate with dried plums and it is poured dark as hell with a fine half finger head. Taste comes on strong with licorice and roasted malts that goes into a chocolate gradient, still with licorice tingling. Well enough hops to freshen it up and I am sure it would be even better after 3 years in the cellar. Having my eyes out for another bottle.

ffbot (420) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Pour is a rich dark blackish brown, huge puffy brown head that retains and leaves lacing. In-penetrable coloring to this one. Smell is subdued, but is coffee, roasty, smoke and wood. Taste is hugely roast and coffee, chocolate, bitter, espresso, vanilla, smoke. Long bitter, drying, coffee aftertaste. Heavenly

Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2015
22oz bottle 12/4/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-50° in Snifter-Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and sweetness. Taste of the same with some dark fruit coming thru on the back end. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Surprised it is rated some what low.

RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2015
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 43°. Color is black, with mellow carbonation and a thin tight tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted coffee. It has a full body with a rich crisp mouth feel. Flavor is rich and sweet with roasted coffee, dark fruit and a hint of coco. After taste gives a quick note of citrus, just a whiff of alcohol and then a dry feel on the tail end. Overall its a very well done Imperial Stout.
