COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few Brazilian brewers came all the way to Norway to brew a big giant of a stout. Keeping in line with giants we tossed a few magic beans in the brew for good measure. Ingredients: water, malt, hops, yeast, tonka and coco beans.

Flaska från Boxbeers. Svart med litet beigebrunt skum. Stor maffig doft med massor av kola, johannesbröd (antar att det är tonkan?), torkad frukt, dadlar, vanilj, rawfoodbollar, pannacotta, kakao, bittermandel och choklad. På något lustigt sätt framträder även en liten ton av lavendel i samspelet mellan de olika dofterna. Större, maffig kropp som hettar något av alkoholen. I smaken johannesbröd, dadlar, vanilj, kola och återigen pannacotta. Maffig och åt det sötare hållet, men samtidigt mild och rund i kanterna. Inte din typiska choklad-söta IS utan snarare kola och torkad frukt i förgrunden. Vet ej om det är tonkan som gör det, men väldigt stora drag av johannesört i både doft och smak, inget jag stött på innan. Smarrigt hur som.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Very complex and exotic nose, vanilla, almond. Very interesting flavor, first impression: wow. Complex, fruity, sweet, sugar cane(?), full bodied, very gentle and well hidden alcohol, dry finish. An unexpected but very interesting and enjoyable flavour bomb, which is very balanced.

Barwa czarna, piany brak. Aromat to świeże pierniki w czekoladzie, alkohol. W smaku w zasadzie podobnie. Pifko jest mega słodkie, mega alkoholowe. Brak przełamania czymkolwiek. Brak goryczki czy paloności. Pifko pełne i cieliste. Mega słodkie pifko.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: pitchblack with low tan head. Aroma: vanilla, cacao, cinnamon, toffee, butterscotch. Taste: high sweetness and fairly high bitterness. Notes of cacao, vanilla, cinnamon biscuits, some coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is fairly bitter with chocolate, vanilla and some biscuits. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and carbonation. Quite surprised by this one. Intense yet gentle and warm. Not as roasty as other imperial stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black with dark head. Aroma is very strong with Tonka beans. Flavour is similar but with added complexity from the dark malts. The hint of booze is welcome as it reduces the overall sweetness. Tonka beans are still not my thing.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. What shocks the most is the overcarbonation. A big advantage is an amazing hidding of this enermous booze. CO2 is weirdly accompanied with tiny champagne-like sourness. Very coffeeish, nutty. The additives brought about an unusual, curious spicy flavour, nice.

Découverte au bar Cervetica Lisboa avec mon cher appiantiqua.Jolie robe ébène surmontée d’une mousse café qui disparaît très vite.Le nez nous offre des arômes très complexes:noix de coco,vanille,notes grillées....La bouche nous amène sur un délicieux nectar avec une excellente amertume et des notes de fruits noirs nous laissant sur une longue finale astringente ,veloutée et chaleureuse.Un Stout exceptionnel qui nous fait planer au dessus des fjords!!!!!!!19

Dégustée à Lisbonne avec mon petit Kittenbieer. Température de début 9 à 10°. Superbe robe ébène surmontée d’une mousse café qui disparaît très vite. Nez sublime et d’une complexité rare: noix de coco, vanille et notes grillées. Le goût atteint les mêmes sommets: fruits noirs, mûres, fèves et surtout un équilibre miraculeux. La finale interminable est légèrement astringente et nous maintient longtemps au Nirvana! Un nectar absolument divint. Si la perfection n’existe pas , on en est ici tout près!!! 19,5/20
