3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 A black color and a little white head. Aroma has roasty and chocolaty elements with light smokiness and licorice. Taste is sweet, malty and roasty. Licorice and chocolate are the prominent flavours, also some light fruity notes. The finish comes a bit too soon; stronger hoppiness would have added depth and balance to the taste. Full body, flat. This Imperial Stout had a nice malty character but lacked a little hoppiness, in my opinion.
February 2016. Probably from a Systembolaget in Stockholm. Drinking whiskey and Ribena in a deep bubble bath aroma. Some juicy zwetschgen and blueberry once the mad whipped beige head collapses. Flavour more smokey wee dram tipped in Ribena and blueberry juice. impressive oily smoked wood under berries. Bubblegum and humbug. Falls far outside the modern US-biased definition of what constitutes imperial stout. I like it.

Bottle. Black, with dark-reddish tinge against light. Malty (roasty malts, coffee, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, toffee, liquorice, vanilla). Fruity (dark fruits). Sweet and very smooth. Less extreme than other Imperials. Really enjoyed this. An excellent beer! (2008)

Bottle as a gift from Albin ( ratebeer name Wanabe_me ) awsome bro ! Thnx very much ! Pours very dark brown, close to black. Creamy, bit darker , good sized head. Smell is darksugar. palmsugar pops to mind. I had some palmsugar that had coffee aspects, this scent reminds me of that. Doesn’t smell like there’s actual coffee in this, but I do get the aspects... The sweet, earhtyness, factors are really strong, and very attypical for an impy. Taste is sugary, aromatic, again that coffee-like-palm-Sugar aspects. a certain dryness ( roasty ), a certain bitterness. rather sweet, a thick, sugary ( special Sugar ) mouthfeel. it’s definately off the charts compared to any other imperial stout I’ve had. it’s not comparable with anything I’ve had before, accept of one of my homebrews, with loads of Palmsugar in it ( hence the constant remembrance of it ) Accept for the fact this is many, many times better in both quality and taste. I really enjoyed this, but have a hard time to view this as an imperial stout, since it’s so different. I’d be very curious to find out how this is brewed, is it indeed palmsugar? This seems like it could have a style on its own. I applaud it ! Thnx very much Albin, I enjoyed this more that I thought i would ! Moebbels (792) - FINLAND - AUG 18, 2016
A pitch black beer with a miniscule light brown head. Nose has intense aromas of roasted coffee beans, dark chokolate, salty caramel and liquorice. Taste is sweet and roasty with a lingering, dry roasted aftertaste. Soft carbonation and full palate. Very nicely made beer with a perfect balance of sweet chokolate and dry roasted flavors.

Black color. Roasted aromas, smoke, coffee, sweet fruits. Dark chocolate, coffee, raisins and roasted taste. Mediocre.

Color negro, spuma beige, sabor negro, notas torrefactas, cuerpo medio. nybol (1765) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2016
Fin fylde og smag af lakrids og kaffe af den ristede slags. Den er ikke spritet som man kun tro. Samuel214 (1089) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2016
Flaska från SB, ca 1½ år gammal. Mörkbrun/svart med beiget skum. Sötsyrliga toner med körsbär och toffee i förgrunden. Lite längre bak ligger kaffe- och chokladtoner. Ännu längre bak lakrits och soja. Fyllig och gräddig. Inledande fruktiga toner i smaken med körsbär och kola. Går över i kraftigare mörkrostade toner med mocca och mörk choklad och avslutas i en rejäl kaffebeska. Snygga övergångar mellan de olika stadierna, som står ut distinkt mot varandra. Mycket smak, bra och gedigen, samtidigt som den är jämn och lätt tillbakahållen. Jämnat ut sig fint. Snygg!!
