look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a St Bernardus goblet. Brewed at Lervig Aktiebryggeri.

A: PItch black and viscous, with virtually no head.

S: Deep, dark, and rich. Foreboding. Molasses. Licorice. Berries. Roasted malt. Quintessential imperial stout.

T: This good. With a brightness belied by the strength. Surprisingly tart and spritely, with huge malt base and generally robust, stouty flavor. Slightly sticky sweetness, but only at times. Well-done, Mikkeller.

M: Just a tad thin.

O: Exceptionally done. Highly recommended. This guy knows how to brew a stout.

330ML bottle poured into stone snifter. No bottled on date to be found

A- Jet black with some thickness. Identical to used motor oil out of my V8 hemi. Little mocha head that sticks around.

S - Strong roastiness, coffee and some dark chocolate. Slight hint of dark candied fruits. Dark brown sugar and molasses.

T - Lots of roast and bakers chocolate with some coffee. Certainly follows the nose.

M - solid mouthfeel. Full but not overbearing and isn't super cloying for the ABV.

O - a very good RIS from mikkeller.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

330ml poured into a snifter and enjoyed solo at the end of a good day.

Appearance - Inky black pour, a very small brown head forms and quickly turns to a ring and slight cap. Lowly carbonated?/ominous.

Smell - Roast/dark chocolate punch, some licorice and dark fruits there as well. Some alcohol (understandable for the ABV) and very slight spicy tones. Decent strength, straight-up big scary stout scent.

Taste - Big roast+char with dark chocolate/fudgy sweetness underlaying, dark fruit, some pepper, some molasses; rich but quite low sweetness. Some hop bitterness there. Some warming alcohol but seems less boozy than the nose, and not bad for 12%.

Mouthfeel - Low-but-there carbonation, mouthfeel is oily with decent thickness to it, not crazy hefty. A little boozy but not a detraction.

Overall - Great sippin' beer, beast of a stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Black in the glass with thin medium brown colored head, tin ring left behind. Improbably a few delicate patches of lace hold up. Smell: chocolate liquor, prune, raisin, espresso, brown bread. Taste: syrupy dark chocolate, roast, light earth, pine note, lots of dark fruit - fig, prune; anise note in the finish. Full bodied, syrupy and slick with light but effectively creamy carbonation. A beast; nice!

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!
