2013 Narwhal is wonderful. Less boozy than the 2012. Drinks great fresh. Roasty and full bodied.

WheatKing (1351) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours black, opaque, tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, dark fruit, alcohol. Some black coffee in the flavour, finish has a lot of licorice to it, some booze but not too much. Good stuff.

Lilja (3541) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Smak och doft av främst choklad och mörkt kaffe men också av rostade toner, torkad frukt och en aning vanilj. Krämig, rund, len och samtidigt frisk och med en lagom beska. Kraftfull och välbalanserad. Riktigt gott.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 350ml bottle, pours brownish black with a small creamy tan head with good retention. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, roasted malt, muscovado and a little alcohol. Light-medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall a very tasty Imperial Stout.
