Bottle: Pours a deep brown almost black color with a finger tall tan head that doesn’t linger for very long. The aroma is roasty chocolate malts and molasses with a touch of alcohol. The taste is not what I was expecting. It’s a little salty with smokey roasted malts really dominating and really no sweetness. It’s actually lighter in body than you would think with a slick texture and sort of flat in the carbonation category and has a dry finish. Overall I liked this beer but didn’t love it. This is rated as an imperial stout but really feels more like a regular stout. It just didn’t have the malt backbone I was looking for.

2 finger beige head. Close to pitch black beer.

Aroma is dark chocolate, prunes, cacao powder, caramel, dark bread, brown sugar, cream and slight epresso.

Taste is hazelnuts, slight coffee, liquorice, slight lactose and slight raisins.

Mouthfeel is light and thin, but quite creamy and smooth. Low bitterness. Very low carbonation.

Overall: This shouldn't be called Imperial Stout in my opinion. More like a Single Porter to be honest. Not bad, pleasant even. But I require a lot more from my Impy's.

På fat på Bishops Arms Örebro. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Doft av tjära, kaffe, choklad och lite portvin. Smak av kaffe och rökt, bränd malt med toner av choklad på slutet.

Maakun (6434) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Almost black with dark beige head. Licorice, coffee, lots of roast, light red berries, cocoa beans. Light sweet, under medium bitter and again light sour. Over medium bodied. It’s a bit weird, not bad at all but not something I’d drink a lot of, a bit too much sour coffee.

tricksta_p (5143) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, some chocolate and coffee, touch of ash and tobacco, notes of dried dark fruits and mild liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Above medium body with lively carbonation. Agreeable Stout, a bit mild for the style.

Fules (1372) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2017
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Csokoládés, aszalt gyümölcsös illatvilág, némi konyakos beütéssel. Csokis, pörkölt malátás, aszalt gyümölcsös ízvilág, halvány kávés beütéssel. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Jól összerakott, kellemes stout.
