Pours out a deep black with slight lacing brown head. The aroma is coffee and oak. The taste is complex with a nice coffee taste well balanced with hops and a good bitterness in the finish. bergstaden (2990) - Røros, NORWAY - APR 28, 2017

Bottle 650ml. Black with small brown head. Chocolate and small hint of sweet vanilla in aroma. There is also bitter chocolate in taste with a little bit wooden finish and small note of alocohol. Beer is smooth even though medium bitterness, wooden and small sweetness in aftertaste. drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - APR 14, 2017
9.5%ABV. Imperial stout.
Poured out black and oily. 40SRM.
Nose has plums and sweet overripe stone fruit. Some medicinal heft to it, liniment and Chinese medicine. Nose also has nice barley bread aroma.
Mouthfeel is syrupy and well balanced with carbonation. Palate is deeply roasted malt with burnt grain and burnt toast. Charcoal, espresso roast, burnt twigs, charred wood, oak, burnt acorns, slightly. Very brief stone fruit body with sweet and light fruitiness.
Finish is bitter, alcoholic and lingering. Wood in the final bit of the palate.
Overall a very endearing imperial stout despite the very rough edges.
Goes on Favorites List! ttoadee (1492) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2017
Black pour, solid mocha head. Nose is chocolate, carmel and oak. Bittersweet. Middle is fudge, blackened malt, velvety caramel, currants, and oak. Finish brings a woody hop bitterness into the mix to bring balance. Wow.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2017 Bottle thanks to MisoW. Slightly vegetal grassy character impairing both aroma and flavour. Other than that there is lots of malty complexity, chocolate, toffee, roast, coffee. It is very good, but the vegetal off note removes it dimensions from where it could be otherwise. MisoW (3582) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2017
