Bottle, 22oz. It pours a pitch black body and a dense, tan head of moderate size. The aroma is roasted and chocolate-ish, with some licorice hints. A pleasant hoppyness too, and then even more chocolate. Citrus peel hints. The flavor has cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, some licorice hints and a fine hoppyness. Some sweetness. Full body, semi-dry and faintly warming. The finish is roasted, with cocoa, chocolate and a little hoppy bitterness. A really pleasant one, well worth a revisit if I can find it again. 131228 Geokkjer (7647) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013

22oz bottle. Opaque pitch black body, rusty beige head. The aroma isn’t super pronounced...kind of a neutralized mix of caramel, chocolate, wheat. Really enjoyable beer, lots of depth...takes Imperial Stout in a unique direction. At 7.8%, I’m having trouble thinking of it as imperial, but it certainly has the big, rich, hefty chocolate tones..big malt depth. Big cocoa black chocolate tones. The wheat is there, adding depth, but I probably wouldn’t catch it if I wasn’t told..adds to the dry finish. I really like how the Danes seem to be able to make drinkable Imperial Stouts. Minty chocolate specialty malt tones, not unlike a Black IPA. Really enjoyable beer, nails it.

bottle shared for the after borefts tasting. poured pitch black with a tan caramel head. roasted malts. with bitter chocolate. rasin, some caramel. small amount of hops. well balanced beer. would’nt say it’s 7.8% phaleslu (10748) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2013
22 oz. bottle via local trade. Pours a deep opaque brown with no head. The German chocolate malt provides a deep cocoa character throughout, with some bitter dark chocolate quality as well, earthy hops, and a burnt wheat note. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to it, and a surprising amount of bitterness. Not really my kind of imperial stout. A little disappointing. kraddel (9170) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2013
