Genialny wygląd. Już patrząc na to piwo widać że będzie bardzo imperialnie z masą doznań. W aromacie słodko, całkiem przyjemne banany. W smaku jest dużo bardziej ostro, cierpko, płatki dębowe zrobiły dużą robotę. Drewniane klimaty bardzo mocno wyczuwalne. Scipio (1215) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2017
I cannot believe that I haven’t rated this. Pours black with a thick, full, brown head that settles slowly. The aroma is big on heavy chocolate and vanilla, along with lesser amounts of roasted malts, coffee, and oak. The taste is pretty dry with some mild bitterness. Its similar to the nose altogether, but different elements are more distinguished. I find heavy roasted malts and oak, with the still potent complimentary flavors of chocolate and coffee. Minor alcohol and hints of vanilla round this out. Long and mild aftertaste of chocolate and coffee. Full in body, thick in texture, and soft carbonation. This is one of my personal favorites.

Simply delicious. Massive coffee and chocolate in the aroma with hints of vanilla. The taste is sweet with flavours of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, and a hint of the wood. The mouthfeel is thick and the flavour last for a long time. Fantastic beer. ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours a black body with a medium, dark tanned head. Mellow roast with loads of milk-chocolate on the nose. Wood, leather and vanilla as well. Light sweet flavour up front with loads of chocolate and roasted malts. Finishes fairly bitter, lasting. This is a superb stout that has all the makings of greatness. A lovely aroma, well balanced flavors and a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Softly carbonated. AnG_BrgNor (808) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2017

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black with dark tan head. Vanilla, chocolate, milk shake, coffee, char, a hint of alcohol. Wine yeast, char, wine gums, chocolate, some more of the vanilla and oak. Smooth, slightly oily palate with longfinish of oak and char. Quite nice but a minor let-down in the flavour department.
