Dark oily pour with a big lively tanned head.
I’m getting liquorice, roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruits. It’s also a bit spicy. A pretty intense aroma!
The flavor consists of roasted malts, liquorice and is a bit peaty actually. Quite interesting flavor.
The carbonation level is pretty high on this beer. A bit too high for this type of beer IMHO. The beer is a bit unbalanced as well, but very good.
Pretty long finish with roasted malt, some dark chocolate and some caramel sweetness.
As with other imperial stouts I would pair this beer with chocolate desserts.
A very interesting (and good) beer but I think it’s quite unbalanced. Score: 4/5.
I bought this bottle at Vika Vinmonopol in Oslo some weeks ago.
