Aroma of roasted brazilnut. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Tastes of charcoal with a hint of meat at the end. The stout is well represented here.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with s small tan head. Aroma has intense roast notes, some dark chocolate, coffee, charcoal, burnt notes, dark fruit and liqourice. The flavor is again mostly on the intense roasty side with lots of burnt and charcoaly notes, I also get the coffee, dark fruit and liqourice. The body is full with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Imperial Stout, but not as good as its hyped up to be.

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2011
Black with a tiny light brown head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, a bit of licorice, and some vineous fruity notes. Sweetish dark flavour of chocolate, licorice and dried fruit, expertly balanced by roasted notes and an excellent hop bitterness. This thing is old school - an imperial stout that you could drink a full glass of, no cloying sugar bomb and no hype, just good beer.

Lots of different aromas. some espresso and chocolate. Its a roasted smell. Flavor is what separates this beer. Impressive hop flavor in an RIS. Love that it takes more than one drink to take in the different flavors. love the dark chocolate and roasted coffee. The end leaves a good flavor, the beer is so smooth it does not hang around as long as some. Also a good pucker at the end, almost too much sourness. great beer. glad I found it. Excited to see how it develops with time.
