Teku glass. That's not duplicate. This is 2013 Lervig batch (all batch before 2013 was brewed in Nogne brewery).

A: Pitch black with dark brown, medium head (one finger) with low retention, high viscosity, low lacing.

S: First of all strong, distinctive fresh brew coffee aroma, roasted malts, low dark fruits esters - prunes, raisins, hint of vanilla aroma, also some dark chocolate, medium hop aroma, alcohol character noticable as coffee liqueur.

T: Very rich. High roasted dark malts falvors - deep coffee flavour, pretty lot of dark chocolate, medium to medium-high bitterness, salty, a little bit tarry, low dark fruit esters. I tastes like it was brew with coffee. Alcohol strenght is evident, but not interfere with flavors. Burnt, roasty and medium bitter aftertaste.

M: Full body. Oily texture. Low carbonation. Gentle alcohol warmth.

O: Really good and balanced imperial stout. Subjectively I really do like coffee flavors, so it's ideal for coffee geeks. Low burnt character makes it really drinkable.

George poured into a snifter at EightBall Brewery.

A - The brew is black as midnight with a small skim of off white mocha head.

S - Th aroma is of dark chocolates, heavy roasted malt and little alcohol.

T - The flavor is nice with dark roasted malts, dark fruits and some chocolates. Mid palate getting some alcohol with more dark malts. On the finish it has more dark fruits with more alcohol than I would like.

M - Smooth medium to full mouthfeel, with medium to low carbonation.

O - The alcohol keeps the score from being a true classic. It's still worth a try! Cheers!

Bottle from Tipples. Pours pitch black with a super creamy dark brown head that lightens up as it grows. Aroma of lots of chocolate sauce, a hint of anise, and mild roastiness. Flavor is a massive hit of bittersweet chocolate sauce, a good bit of bitter roast to balance, a little smoke, and a slight twinge of anise. Huge thick viscous mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation, sticky. This is one of the best non-BA stouts I have had. Awesome stuff.
