Schön dickes Stoutchen mit ordentlich Bumms, ausgewogen in seiner Art mit angenehm viel an diversen Getreiden, Kaffee, Malz und ein bisschen an Beeren. Angenehm zu trinken, süffig und stark. Gute Sache. Pyrmir (6098) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2012

Holmen1 (5888) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Nice light brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry, roasted grain, dark malts, coffee, burnt caramel, puffed rice, ashtray, hops, rubber, hay, grass. Taste is sour-ish burnt, ashtray, burnt coffee, burnt caramel, burnt grain, minerals, sour coffee, hops, pine needles, grass. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh burnt mouthfeel. Fair enough, but not my cup of tea.
Flaske delt med Ovesen ombord på Fridtjofen des-14: svart med kort beige, stoeboblet skum. Flott aroma av mørke malter, nybrent kaffe og noe kvae. Stor, kompleks og intens smak med lang og god ettersmak. Et snev av mørk sødme kler den kraftige kroppen godt. Nydelig balansert bitterhet. Tørr slik en god stout skal være.

(Mohawk Whiteout Imperial Stout) Bottle 330 ml at home, thanks to Nische! Served into a teku, ABV 9.7%
Dark brown to black colour on the body, with a huge, thick and rising, dark beige head on top. Very good retention, helped by its size.
Nice aroma, with coffee grounds, fruity notes, chocolate.
Taste has also some coffee grouns, liquorice, light roasted malts on the finsih, fruity touches, faint chocolate, very well hidden alcohol.
Medium body with the carbonation on good levels.

Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a large creamy off-white head. Nose is licorice, dark chocolate, caramel, coffee and hints of milk chocolate, grains and straw. Taste is dark chocolate, grains, cocoa, straw and hints of caramel, brown sugar, honey and pine. Full body, medium to high carbonation. Quite a pleasant imperial stout, yet somehow without being too convincing as far as top scores are concerned. Arve_Christian (5144) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2016
On 33 cl bottle. Pitch black color, ok offwhite foam. Medium/high aroma intensity; roasted, licorice, coffee, choclate and malt. Full body & high complexity. Good bitterness and balance. Very enjoyable Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2013
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Black color. Very coffeish aroma with pepper, grass, leather, juniper and hint of smoke. Sweet and roasty flavor with grassy coffee, licorice and bitter chocolate. Full body, some tannic astringency in the palate. Not my favourite IS, but quite complex.
