330 ml bottle. Pours black with a short lived beige head. Aroma is roast, coffee, chocolate and resin. Flavor is dark chocolate, coffee, sugar. Finish is resinous bitterness, burnt, coffee and chocolate. Lingering dark roast coffee. Medium to full body, velvety mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Excellent!

Aroma is of course, roasted malts, caramels, bread and chocolates. The taste provides with a rather distinct attack from heavy roasted malts at first and slowly tips over towards dark fruits, liquorice and coffee. The finale is actually pretty light and thin which had me a bit confused, as I expected a true bitter and longlasting effect, but no. Still a pretty good Imperial Stout, even if it’s a bit low on the abv and the thin finale.

Good roasted malt aroma. The taste is of dark malt, roasted malt also a little sweetness. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Really good beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

[email protected]ÖSB. Blecksvart vätska med brunfärgat skum. Doft av säd, bröd, bränt bildäck och medicin. Smaken överraskar positivt. Choklad, mörkrostat kaffe. Fräsch och lätt munkänsla. Lite syrligt avslut.

Bottle shared by Alex. Thanks! Pours pitch black with a two finger tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso, with a touch of oxidation. Medium heavy mouthfeel. Taste follows the nose and has a ash and char note as well. This is a very tasty brew and one I’m glad I got to try. It is very good.

Flaske 0,33l fra Systembolaget, e-beställning. Beksvart. Høyt luftig skum med litt farge. Varer. Litt lacing. God lakrisaroma med innslag av røyk. Smaken er sjokolade og litt søt lakris. Myk munnfølelse. Va bra!

330ml bottle, 7 % abv, at Bishops Arms in Luleå. Pours a tan-coloured head to a pitch black body, fragile lacing to the glassware. Pleasant aroma of cocoa with fruity notes. Similar flavours of cocoa powder, a little smoke, and dark fruits, mid-tart berries towards the ending. Well bodied. Pleasing (shared with djoeye, 25.05.2014).

Brewdork (234) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2014
330 ml bottle poured into snifter. Opaque, near-black color with a modest khaki head that settles into a ring after a few moments. Requisite roasty coffee, toffee, chocolate and dark fruit aromas. Flavor is lightly sweet with lots of roasted coffee character with a slightly astringent bitter finish. Overall this is considerably drier than my nose had me expecting. It’s an interesting contrast to the sweeter, fuller-bodied imperial stouts I’m accustomed to, but I’m not sure I prefer it.

djoeye (5273) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2014
Dark brown 0.33L special bottle ABV 7%;

beige film, black-brown body.
Aroma of apple-hops, caramel liquorice, fruitiness, choco-malts.
Tastes lots of berries n fruits, peel of green apples, sourness, coffee, chocolate,
distinct lingonberry notes.
Fruity on palate with lively carbonation, which puts lingonberries forward.
Chocolate finish, mocca cocoa coffee, nice indeed. No killing over-bitter imperial disturbance here.
As a very tasty stout.
