4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Aroma- chocolate, licorice, honey, molasses, char, whiskey
Appearance- pitch black with a nice tan head, crazy alcohol presence
Taste- honey sweetness upfront, followed by char, dark chocolate, slight hop presence, whiskey barrel, more char, bittersweet finish
Palate- very full bodied, nice carbonation, super slick mouthfeel
Overall- This one came completely out of left field. It cost me a good bit and was well worth it. This is one of the best beers that I’ve ever had. Extremely well blended and everything that I love in a massive impy, this beer ranks up there with the best of them IMO.
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Niestety - bardzo słabo się zestarzało, wyszły jakieś kartonowo-szmaciane klimaty. Malin_aiisa (1202) - SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2016

Black body with a beige head that coats the glass in sticky lacing. Aromas of oak, scotch, chocolate. Scotch dominates the aroma and flavor, finishing with a tannic note. A hint of vanilla with lots of wood. Honey comes in mid to late palate, offering a sweetness that nicely counters the oaky nature of the beer. Pretty good.

Bottle, a nice one, BB 180514. Pours pitch vinous black with awesome tan mocha head, ever lasting. Aroma has honest, bourbon, heather, sweet leather, yam, oak, dry wood, malt, toast, raisins, smoke, peat, char and tar. Taste is peat, char, sweet port, liquor, dark fruits, malts, burnt sugar and malts, mead, hard roast. Some sherry acidity, spicy heather honest. The comes the all dry tar smoky peaty oak. Long roasty smoky finish. Sticky body with low carbonation. Slight warming and vanilla spice. So dry! some alcohol, liquorice root, figs in booze, whisky character in finish. Shame with the light body due to the age. Awesome. neongolden (1716) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
(500ml bottle brewed 2009 and BB 2014, @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 9 2015) Pours pitch black with a decent pale tan head. Aroma is wet potting soil and vermiculite up top, below is sweet dark honey, herbal, maybe some wild berries, molasses, light roast, hints of scotch. Flavour is sweet honey and toffee, dark malt, heather?, some wood, whiskey and peat. Dry, peaty, musty finish. Full intense body with soft carbonation. Wow, totally different than imp stouts I’m used to, from Mikkeller or otherwise. Love the combination of scotch/herbal/roasty characters. Very complex, can’t explain it well, love to sip it and think though.
