Black with a large frothy brown head. Aroma is roasted and malty with dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, hints of ink, ash, licorice, light notes of vanilla and molasses in the background. Taste is bitter, light sweet, roasted and malty. Quite bitter finish, slightly dry, with some ash and ink, cocoa and coffee, some grassy bitter hop notes, light malty sweetness with toffee and dark berries. Medium to full bodied, soft to average carbonation.
Solid imperial stout, a bit too bitter in the finish though.
Stor flaska delad på Bishops Arms, Örebro. Dryga året gammal. Svartbrun med nästan två fingrar högt beiget skum. Doft av toffee, choklad, mocca. Medelstor kropp. Hårt rostad, kärv. Saknar nästan lite sötma. Lite toffee, choklad, kaffe. Aningen för spretig och stickig. onceblind (10534) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Black pour under a thin khaki hued head. Big chocolate and roast and light clove/cinnamon tone almost like a Mexican chocolate cake, but sweeter and with a dose of milk chocolate. Rich flavor that’s bright and roasty, with loads of bittersweet dark chocolate, some kind of earthy spice, a little less spice and Mexican-like than the nose but there’s still something there--with a weirdly almost pineapple-like tone near the end. There’s something odd in there I can’t put my finger on, it’s not just boozy dark chocolate and roast malt with a hint of coffee. Hard to put my finger on. But it’s delightful nonetheless.
