COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On my way to this iconic brewery with a suitcase full of marshmallows I admittedly questioned my good judgement. However, sipping on a glass of this beer I am utterly happy that the purist in me stayed at home.

Omnipollo Hypnopompa is an imperial stout brewed with almost 100 kgs of marshmallows and Tahitian vanilla beans (the size of cigars). Virtually no carbonation and boiled a bit extra for good measure this is a beer strictly for the stout inclined.

Batch #1 intentionally has no carbonation. Batch #2 has low carbonationd and cold extracted Hafursa coffee.

Drink now or age for many years.

Vol1 Piana szczątkowa. Kolor czarny. Aromat czekolada deserowa, kawa, czarna porzeczka,wanilia, słodko. Smak gorzka czekolada, kawa, estry owocowe. Jest słodko ale tego tak nie czuć dzięki wysokiej kwaskowej palonosci. Nagazowania brak, alkohol ukryty, pije się to wyśmienicie. Brawo WOW

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 33cl bottle at home. Appearance: black with low beige head. Aroma: coffee, dark bread, cacao, freshly cut peppers. Taste: high sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of coffee, peppers/vegetables, cacao, bread. Palate: medium bodied, sticky texture and medium carbonation. No vanilla, no marshmellows. Disappointing.

Na maxa gęste. Piana wybitna, betonowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. Kolor nieprzejrzysty, brązowy. W aromacie intensywna kawa, w tle trochę czekolady. Smak. Max kawowo, lekko kwaśno od kawy. Wszystko bardzo intensywne. Wylepiające. Wysycenie niskie. Na finiszu czuć leciutkie rozgrzewanie. W smaku alkoholu nie czuć wcale. Pije się jak syrop. Jest goryczka, palona, kawowa. Po ogrzaniu w smaku wychodzą pralinki, likierowatość, kontrowane wszystko fajną nie zalegającą słodyczą czekolady. Jest świetnie.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 30A / 20C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown (BBF unknown). AROMA: medium-high roasted aroma, with black coffee notes, a medium dark chocolate presence and a low sweet background. APPEARANCE: almost black in color and opaque. low brown head with low carbonation. TASTE: high roasted flavor with a black coffee / dark chocolate character and an initial sweet note that evolves into a roasted character. medium-high to high bitterness with a dry and roasted (almost burnt) finish. PALATE: full body with a velvety texture. very low carbonation. smooth alcohol warmth. OVERALL: an imperial stout overly roasted with a nice texture.

Nice brown head. Quite intensive aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, dried fruits. Strong taste of roast, coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, vanilla. High body, oily, creamy texture. Sweet with high bitter finish. Low carbonation. Great one.

Bottle thanks Kristi. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong roast, cocoa, licorice, vanilla. Thick, chewy, roast, dark chocolate, marshmallows, licorice, boozy, very good.

Kita (2210) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours pitch black with thin quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, biscuit, dried fruit and yeast. Taste starts with medium sweet chocolate, follows by mild fruity acidity, rum and rich roasted malt, mouthfeel is warming and spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, thick creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. This one hypnotized me...

Piana bardzo drobna, ciemnobeżowa, opadając jakoś tam zdobi szkło. W aromacie jest, ku mojemu zdziwieniu, jest przede wszystkim kawowo, dopiero dalej w tle gorzka czekolada oraz pewien słodki akcent - autosugestia podpowiada oczywiście pianki. Po lekkim ogrzaniu wątpliwości się rozwiewają, faktycznie nieco czuć wspomniane na etykiecie marshmallows. Bardzo przyjemny, intensywny aromat. W smaku jest dość słodkie, pełne, choć przy tym dalej mocno kawowe. Przyjemnie gładkie w odczuciu. Jak na ciemnego imperiala z Omnipollo, to muszę przyznać, że goryczka jest konkret, długo zostaje na podniebieniu, świetnie balansuje całość. Alkohol niemal kompletnie ukryty. Smakiem chyba najbliższy tradycyjnemu podejściu do risów ciemniak z Omnipollo, a dla mnie zdecydowanie najlepszy. Spokojnie łapie się do mojego top 3 risów.
