COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

Had this out of the bottle right after Rogue Double Chocolate Stout; both excellent. This is more bitter and more espresso; its imperial stout nature comes through.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Botella 66 cl de bierhalle Cortrique tomada en Oviedo Kraken 13..10.. 2017. Sin lote ni fdcpref legibles. (r1215). Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro persistente.

Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Cierta densidad y algo espumoso. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.

Tap at Roor in Oslo, 11th October 17. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa. Taste is dry and bitter, dusty cocoa, bitter dark chocolate. I had feared this would be sweet, but it's spot on, smooth, bitter. Great stuff.

4.2
gunnar (9695) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2017
Bottle from Vnmonopolet Kvadrat, enjoyed at my last evening at Gunnarsbu. Pours dark as the Cretan nighr, with a thick and creamy tan head, a looker this one. Lovely chocolate aroma, cocoa and vanilla, and even some liquorice, maybe. Lovely complex chocolate, dark bitter, with cocoa and burnt malts, liquorice and something like a weak burning sensation at the long finish, the cayenne was a good surprise there, lovely beer, creamy mouthfeel, Delicious.
