COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Mørk sort øl. Duft af mørke frugter og vanilje. Lækker stout. Smager af blomme og chokolade. God eftersmag.

Aroma is nice and smokey, a bit unusual for an imperial stout but not unpleasant. Roasted coffee, chocolate cake, vanilla, light bacon notes. Full bodied, low carbonation. Taste is sweet and a bit alcoholic. Vanilla, smoked meat, coffee and dark chocolate. Nice roastiness and bitterness. Thick and fudgy, this is a strange but very good imperial.

W aromacie czuje sporo palonych slodów, przebija sie przez nie kawa oraz duzo gorzkiej czekolady. Do tego dochodzi wanilia. W smaku jest sporo palonych nut polaczonych ze szlachetnym alkoholem. Do tego mocna dawka wanilii. Po przelknieciu trunku cale gardlo wypelnia sie smakiem gorzkiej czekolady. Bardzo mile rozgrzewanie, pelne, waniliowe. Nuty gorzkiej czekolady staja sie jeszcze wyrazniejsze po drugim lyku. Waniliowy finisz nie jest juz tak intensywny, jak na poczatku. Warto tez dodac, ze wanilia jest wyrazista i nie zalatuje sztucznoscia, jak w przypadku niektórych piw. Podobnie jest z kawa, mam przed oczami ziarna palonej kawy niczym w reklamie. Palonosc, tak w duzym skrócie moge opisac to piwo.

Yummy, yummy Jesus. Waves of milk chocolate, black cherries, anise, raisin, and hints of clove and cola, with a strong espresso bitterness on the back end. Starts strong, boozy and sweet, yet the finish never grows cloy, instead mixing a java fade with a glowing liquor warmth. Deep, thick, and complex. Pours a gorgeous black with a dark brown head and ample lace. Massive chocolate and candied cherry nose. Warm, but at 13% it should be. Lovely.

1pint can. The beer poured pitch black with an espresso head. Roasted malt, molasses, syrup, chocolate and coffee notes. It is sweet but not the same stickyness these usually are. Balanced, round and smooth, abv nicely hidden. Some warmth of course. Oily, dark chocolate, coffee, syrupy, dark malts in flavors. Long long finish. Great sipper, but scaringly easy to drink.

Full bodied pitch black stout. Loaded with coffee, chocolate, sweet dark fruits and brown sugar. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness and between malts and hops. High complexity. Brilliant!

Wow. Pours a deep black color with a thick tan head that quickly dissipates. Nice lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, molasses, and brown sugar over booze. Taste is fantastic. An almost bitter baker’s chocolate is joined by the molasses and brown sugar for a complex flavor that goes down easy and starts a fire in the belly. That dryness of the dark chocolate makes for great mouth feel throughout. Nice long, semi-dry finish. I like everything about this beer.
