Bottle from West Side. One year aged. Pours a pitch black with a strong 2 fingers of brown foam that linger. Huge black forest cake nose with cherry, blueberry and fudge brownie. Smooth and silky on the palate, but still a little alcohol heat perceived. Big cacao nib, berry and fudge. So good. A sipper and can’t wait to open a few bottles in years to come.

Samuel214 (713) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2016
Flaska från SB, ca ett år gammal. Kolsvart, tjock vätska med två fingrar högt mörkbrunt skum som mestadels lägger sig, lämnar lite rester längs kanterna. Det räcker med att öppna flaskan som sprider doften sig. Verkligen en tjock, fyllig doft packad med choklad, kaffe, rökiga toner, krämig toffee, vanilj, mörkrostade, nästan brända toner, kola, skummad mjölk och torkad frukt. Svårt att säga vilket som är i förgrunden, det samsas och håller ihop väldigt väl. En tung, krämig, riktigt tjock och fyllig kropp som fyller munnen. Brända toner, värmande alkohol och påtaglig beska kommer över en på en gång. Sedan kaffe, kola, kärva och rökiga toner. Avslutas igen med stor beska, riktigt brända toner och spritig värme. Det här är en tung, komplex, kaxig imperial stout. Inte att underskatta. En sipper helt klart. Ruskigt bra.
