Sample at cbc. Pours black, tan frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is malty, full body, nice balance. k0mpsa (2974) - Tuusula, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Tap at cbc, copenhagen. Black color, tanned head. Aroma has rich roasty and smoky. Nice smoky body, hops at the end, some wheaty notes. Derbeth (947) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle with expiry date 07.2017. Aroma is quite intensive dark chocolate, some wood, a bit of ash, a bit of hops. Alcohol not very well hidden. Full body. Lack smoothness. A bit disappointing when compared to other beers from this brewery. This is definitely not an exceptional imperial stout. electrotype (655) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Je ne trouve pas que le blé fait une si grande différence que ça, ici. C’est une bière légèrement fûmée, assez costaude. Pas de notes de café ou de chocolat, ou alors très peu. C’est surtout le côté fumé et la torréfaction des grains qui resort. L’alcool est perceptible mais pas désagréable. Pas mon genre. stevoj (5062) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 18, 2016
Catch up rating from Saturday’s RIS bottle share. Big, bold and dark, tasty bitter roast grains, hints of alcohol warmth peeping through. Another keeper out of the lot of 160 bottles.
