Icedwarf (1961) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2018
Zwart bier met mooie stevige bruine schuimkraag die lang blijft staan, Smaak is licht zoet, licht bitter en warm met iets van bittere chokolade, iets van koffie en cognac. Erg goed bier, om te genieten. daydesiang (90) - MALAYSIA - APR 12, 2018
UPDATED: APR 12, 2018 Intense dark color with thin brown head.
Nose: Wow! First nose comes with intense dark sweet fruits. Afterwards comes the sweet kopi-o (americano with sugar) plus melted dark Belgium chocolate inside. After a few sip, roasted malt,
Taste: Belgium 60% dark chocolate with espresso come to my mind. All sweet and so little bitterness at the end! Low carbonation but it tickles your taste bud nicely!
Aftertaste: Medium Long sweet dried California plums. loscovar (1148) - Principality of SEALAND, - APR 5, 2018
UPDATED: APR 5, 2018 Bottle from Saveur Bière.com. Black color, off white small head. Roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon. Pretty good ianwelby (1646) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2018
Black beer, thick brown head. Hearty smell of malt, chocolate, toffee. Taste has pretty much the same qualities, with a sweet chocolate hit up front that gets balanced out by the drier flavour from the malt which lingers into the aftertaste. Rich, smooth and hefty. Very tasty. bonkiedeaap (889) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2018

Bottle. BB 24/7/17 - brewed 24/7/13. Stored for 4 years in the cellar. Nice aromas of coffee with milk - bit sweet and a bit of dark chocolate. Eventhough the beer has been in the bottle for some time, it pours with beautiful light brown, small bubbled head. Deep black color. In taste at first comes tiny sweetness and then takes over quite powerfull biterness witch stays in mouth for quite some time. Bit chocolate, coffee and some toffee flavors. Well hidden alcohol, light pleasnt carbonation. Very drinkable for imperial stout. Solid Imperial Stout from Norway. Hopverdju (1850) - BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2018

Farge: svart som natten
Lukt: salt, brent, tørkede frukter
Smak: mørk sjokolade, fiken, mokkabønner,
Kremete. Svovel. Mye sødme og smaksrik, men ikke overveldende. God balanse mellom sødme og bitterhet. Fin ettersmak av kaffe og mokkabønner som henger lenge igjen, med litt mer kaffe enn mokka.

330 ml bottle,bb 05/10/2021.
Black,minimal beige head.
Nose - roasted malts,chocolate. Muted.
Taste - like the nose. Dark chocolate aftertaste. Smooth and oily. mieszal92 (524) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 7, 2018
Bottle. Very solid imperial stout with only one downside- should have a more powerful body, it's like a muscular corps man standing on very weak legs. Anyway, the aroma is welcoming, dessert sweetness with a generous hint of fruitiness, chocolate. Mouth is nice, neither too dry nor too sweet. A note of soy sauce. Lacks that body, any dominance, power. Maybe a level too much in carbonation. Good anyway, a fair price for Norway.
