From tap. Pours brown to pitch black with a fully diminished chocolate brown head. Hopy and roasted malty aroma. Smooth marmelade hoppy flavour to a mild roasted chocolate malty base flavour. Light sweet and bitter into the finish. Lingering herbal and fresh hoppy.

Ungstrup (36943) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A pitch black beer with a lasting orange-brown head. The aroma is quite hoppy combined with notes of grass and grapefruit, as well as light notes of chocolate. The flavor is very complex with notes of citrus, hops, and chocolate, leading to an with notes of grapefruit. Like hop soup with chocolate.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Draught. Black colour, brown big head. Roasted malts, toffee, hops and some hayish notes in aroma. Roasted malt, hayish hops and alcohol in flavour. Feels a bit unbalanced as for the sweetness which is there all the way through. Kind of cuts in in a bad way with the hops.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2008
(On tap) Pours black and opaque with a light brown head. Sweet aroma of vanilla and hard roasted malt. Quite full-bodied with distinctly sweet hard roasted malt. Has a light malt bitterness. A friendly Imperial Stout, but perhaps a little to the overly sweet side. 120908

omhper (24799) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2006
[Draught at GBBF] Pitch black, no head. Salty licorice and tar simmers on a soft but firm compact maltiness. Packed with flavour, but not assaulting. Vicely bitter, salty finish. The softness and blance makes it one of the best imperial stouts anywhere.
