3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma of heavily roasted malt with chocolate. Flavor of roasted, almost smoky malt with chocolate and a bitter finish. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. It’s a good beer, but it’s definitely my least appreciated from Hornbeer’s many imperial stouts. It just lacks some personality.
(1.5 year old)
Very dark brown with lasting dark beige head.
Nose: Dark, sweet malt and pine trees. Malt sirup, medium roasted coffee beans, molasses, raw cocoa and quite a lot of pine hoppiness.
The arrival is sweet, followed by a rich, slightly oily viscosity and generous carbonation. There’s dark chocolate, coffe (mocca) beans and roasted malt on the mid palate, before a pleasant hoppy bitterness appears in the finish. The aftertaste is rather long. Very nice beer!

el drinko. smellz o dark choko milky, floral things, nut, pinch of coffee grinds, slight ash, penguins. flavos are pretty good - hard chokko, well worked in bitterness dat is not in the way, grinds, acidic, tons of malt. Needs to bee drank slow or the bitterness, acidic penguins pile up and recks things. its lost somewhere between pretty good and really good. Acid. Acid was fantastic when I was younger but not so much now. k92488 (484) - KVERNALAND, NORWAY - APR 8, 2017

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna, pojawiają się większe pęcherze.
Aromat bardzo dobry. Gorzka czekolada, trochę kawy. Bardzo delikatna kwaskowość. Jest też delikatna nuta palona, kojarząca się ze stoutem.
W smaku gorzka, zimna kawa. Jest tez sporo czekolady, nuty kakao.
Lekka paloność w posmaku.
Dość gładkie w odczuciu.
Alkohol dobrze zamaskowany.
Bardzo przyjemny RIS.

Kran PTP. Aromat przyjemny, czekoladowo-kawowy. W smaku powtórka, dużo ciemnych słodów. Piwo mogłoby jednak być zdecydowanie bardziej intensywne, nie wywiera wielkiego wrażenia.
