3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33l bottle at home. BB 23.08.2019. black color, small coffee colored head. smells milky, caramel, fudge, bit herbal, nice smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of vanilla, caramel, light fudge, earthy, licorice, peppery, spices. finishes lightly roasty bitter with notes of vanilla, caramel and some fudge. decent one, but just too much vanilla for me, bit one-sided. Good but also not my kind of beer, still drinkable.
Lähes musta lasissa jättäen tumman ruskean vaahdon. Tuoksu on hyvin suklainen ja osin kahvinen. Suutuntuma on hyvin täyteläinen, edelleen suklainen ja hieman vaniljainen. Loppumaussa on alkoholin potku. Erittäin täyteläinen ja hitaasti juotava IS. PowY (1284) - AUSTRIA - MAR 3, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2018 100 ml taster at home, courtesy of Werckmeister - 330 ml bottle, bb. 23.08.2019 - many thanks. Pours a very dark mahogany with a light brown head. The aroma is malty with lots of mildly roasted malt - nuts, lots of hazelnuts, milk chocolate, mild coffee, fudge, quiet some vanilla. Very smooth and good smell. Medium-full body with soft carbonation, a medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The mouthfeel maybe could be a little bit thicker and oilier. The flavor is similar to the smell with mildly roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, nuts, brown sugar, fudge and hints of alcohol. Finishes with a light roasty bitterness and notes of coffee. Overall more on the sweeter side with lots of vanilla and nice aromas from the roasted malt - pretty good.

Bottle received in the local European swap, thanks to jinroh. Black with a small light brown head with good retention, lace and regeneration. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla. The flavour follows the aroma with vanilla, chocolate, light fudge and roasted malt. Full body, soft and oily texture with medium to heavy sweetness and bitterness. Long finish with vanilla and roasted malt. Pretty soft and hides the alcohol well. Antonio369 (271) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2018

Flaska från Joel, tack! Svart med brun, krämig krona. Massor av fudge, lakrits, rostade och brända toner, honung, enbärsavkok, nästan lite rökiga toner. Ganska stor sötma. Något större kropp. Kärv avslutning med stor beska. Mycket av allt, gott! madmitch76 (27181) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2018

Bodney Towers bottleshare. Thanks to Mr Tipple. Opaque black - brown beer, small dark tan head. Palate is airy, fairly dry and has decent fine carbonation. Bitter and thin dark malts, bitter dark chocolate. A little spice. Tangy dark fruits underneath. Smooth finish. Rich and tasty enough.
Not so bad imperial stout at all. Small taste of alcohol disturbs. Needs something more to balance the taste. Now the aftertaste is too simple. humpah (420) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2017
