Doften är kaffe, lakrits och aningen parfym. Smaken är tung med inslag av kaffe, mörk choklad och små inslag av salt, även en viss beska. En helt okay öl! Scopey (14699) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013. It pours opaque black with a medium tan head. The nose is rich-roasted malt, coffee, earth, mild acidity, milk chocolate, meat and light smoke. The taste is oily, roasted malt, earth, coffee, dark fruit, fudge, chocolate, mild acidity, maple syrup and liquorice with a warming finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Big, oily and bold stuff. Pretty flavoursome, but a tough to drink much of... aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2013
Chocolately aroma with some hints of wood in the background. The taste is some dark chocolate, hints of wood and some coffee in the background. Disappointed, had expected more. circinus (305) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle 65 cl from Systembolaget. Black with brown very nice head. Brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, roast!, burnt components, syrup. Full body, thick, smooth, light carbonation. Well hidden alcohol, a bit of warmness. Very nice! Franzen (594) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 65 cl bottle at systembolaget. Fantastic appearance really dark, "Total djävla mörker" as we say in Sweden. The aroma is nice and give hints of chocolate and coffe, it is however too subtle. The mouthfeel is really nice, really thick and good carbonation levels. Pretty much alcohol warmth. Really nice taste with lots of coffe, dark chocolate and some sweetness.
Conclusion: An almost perfect imperial stout. Its only downside is the aroma, which is nice but should be more powerful

Pours a rich thick burnt umber... lots of khaki foam. Lots of chocolate and coffee notes with traces of prune, licorice and sea salt caramel. Bitterness in the finish opens into some maple notes. A very enjoyable beer but a bit $$. olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very powerful smell and taste with coffee and dark chocolate. Thick body. Very tasty and complex. Staffan47 (909) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Koncentrerad profil. Försöker anstränga mig till mitt yttersta för att känna lönnsirapen men förgäves. Det är mycket koncentrerade smaker här. Lite synd att inte lönnsirapen är lite mer tydlig tycker jag. planky84 (3259) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle at Chris O’s pre-GBBF shindig, 2013. Black pour with a tan head. Dark roast coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Tobacco, coffee and dark chocolate flavour. Smoky-sweet finish. Totally my bag. Lovely stuff. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Pitch black color with small brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma, coffee, with light phenol. Full bodied, with very good flavor of roasted malt, dark chocolate, moderate sweetness, hints of liquorice, a bit salty in the end; strong bitterness, the hopping is also resiny.
Got already many beers like this, but it’s very good.
