Imperial pint can from Beervana. Pours an inky pitch black color with a small beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is strongly malty and with strong dark fruits upfront. Oaky, vanilla notes get displaced by notes of figs, prunes, plums, molasses, bourbon and rapadura. Taste is sweet, very sweet but quite complex and dynamic. Surprisingly it has few toasted/roasted hints. Some caramelized flavors, strong in molasses and cane sugar. Touches of fruit backed up by soft dark fruits. Rich woody dryness. Big body, not chewy though. Immense aftertaste, bold finish. Big one, very American. Really interesting but would have loved extra-balance against the sweetness. witt (96) - Elsinore, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2017

Can from Systembolaget. Black with a tan head. On the sweet side with bourbon, oak, chocolate, coffee and some caramel. The body was almost full and the finish long. Tasty stuff.

Can @home, (Clear out the cellar evening). Pours Black, opaque, very small tan head. Nose is chocolate, toffee, coffee, licorice, tar, slight cigarettes, smells v.boozy. Taste is more of the same, slight whisky on the taste and more chocolate. It’s good but its just trying a bit too much.
