Chriso rock the roof down pre-GBBF tasting. Quite much pitch black colour with small beigeish brown head. Aroma is liquorice, some dark dry fruits, mild chocolate and coffee as well. Also some slight alcohol. Flavour is dark dry fruits, liquorice, some mild roasted notes as well as chocolate. Not all that bad.
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Near black, small head. Grainy licorice aroma. Medium-full bodied . Sweetish with fairly hard mouthfeel. Soy sauce, salmiak and grainy licorice. Salt finish. Dull and one-dimensional. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours completely black and opaque wiith a light brown head. Hard roasted malts in the nose - perhaps even tar! Very full-bodied, intensely hard roasted malts, dried fruits and licorice. Some malt bitterness in the finish and warming alcohol. An immaculate Imperial Stout. Shame about it’s low score - is that simply because it’s a Sam Adams? 100709 madmitch76 (24980) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
31st July 2010. ChrisO’s ’Raise The Roof’ tasting. cgarvieuk (24790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2010
Spider crawl notes at the end of a long days rating! Opaque black - brown beer. Fresh dark malt, an undertone of cherry and a little malt roastiness.
bottle at home ... deep black ... bubbly tan head ... sweet licorice nose ... roast malts ... treacle toffee ... juicy light dry linger ... nice but too licorice.
