750 mL caged & corked bottle from Grape & Gourmet. First off, this had to be the most stubborn cork in the history of beer or wine. Luckily, the struggle was worth it. Pours dark black with a foamy khaki head. Rich roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate and hints of sweet Belgian yeast in the background. The flavor is very rich with smoky malts, burnt espresso, and dark chocolate dominating. The alcohol content is detected in both flavor and warmth. This seems like a heavy beer and drinking this will require some patience. Overall, this is a damn fine imperial stout. TaktikMTL (7981) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2011

29-MAR-2011, bottle @Papsø tasting.
Black with fine brown head.
Roasted nose. Loads of coffee and chocolate?
Almost as if the chocolate is added?
Alcohol can be felt. It has a very long aftertaste.
Fantastic stout. joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2011
pitch black with tan head. nose of roasted malt with touches of belgian esters. carbonation high for an imperial stout. little bitterness prior to special b notes and the roasted component being present but not overwhelming. the belgian esters provides some dark fruit character. this brew is aged 1 year and the finish is superb with a lingering dry finish with touches of fusel alcohols, but providing neither depth nor distraction. a good version of the belgian imperial stout style joergen (29234) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2011
