500ml bottle brought back home from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Opaque back body under a fading, tan-coloured head. Smell of dark fruits, dusty hops and some notes of pine. Dark bitter fruits in flavour along with leafy hops supported by a spicy touch, quite peaty, in fact. Hop bitter endnotes. Different and flavoursome stout (shared with Finn and MrSoul, Tromsø 22.09.2011). Finn (8184) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011

Draught at KØ09. Cloudy black colour. Very small light brown head. Slightly rough bitterness. Faint hint of coffee. Too much malt bitterness for me. ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2009
A very dark brown beer with a small off-white head that actually leaves some lacings.
The smell is fairly mild with aromas of smoked and roasted malts, burnt wood, chocolate and hints of fruits.
The taste is quite sweet and balanced with flavors of mild peaty smoke, roasted malts, coffee and dark fruits. The finish is mildly bitter, dry and a short with hints of hops.
It’s quite soft on the palate with a rather full body and very mild carbonation. Goes down really easy.
All in all, a decent beer, very easy to drink.

RBSG09. This was kind of an odd one. It had a relatively mild, dry flavor for a stout (ok, for an impy stout, which it was not as I now see). There was almost an off cardboard note to it, although I assume it wasn’t aged. Perhaps, it was just something funny about the roasted barley. At any rate, there’s a very good roasted chocolate flavor in there with some good dry complexity. It just might have been too dry for the size of the stout and the strongly roasted barley flavor. gunnfryd (15299) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2010
