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.

adasko (2119) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Tap in BierCab. After all this hype its rather dissapointing for me. Its really decent imperial stout with nice coffee, milky marshmallows aroma. Not much of marshmallows in taste, rather more coffee, roasted notes. Good one, but nothing close to mind blowing.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Draught at the brewery, 11/28/16.
Deep, dark, inky black body of indeterminable clarity topped by a head of actual marshmallows that are then blow-torched....Pretty god damned over-the-top and hilarious.
Nose, then, is filled with marshmallow though rich, rich chocolatey fudge and cocoa notes pour forth, as well. Vanilla, moderate roast and some alcohol make their way in.
In the mouth its massively sweet, sugary, chewy, rich, fudgey and the balance seems to be attempted with alcohol and bitter roast character, which doesnt work out too well. Low carbonation, thick, syrupy. Just way, way, way too sweet. Obviously meant to be a massive, over-the-top Imperial Stout, but regardless, its difficult to drink much of it, for me.

Bottle 0,33. Pours black with large foamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, lots of it, vanilla, caramel, coffee. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, caramel, dried fruits. Full body and oily texture, soft carbonation.
