750 ml bottle poured into a wine glass as Immortal blasts blast beats out of the speakers.

A big fluffy brown head is produced; no doubt a product of the refermentation. The body is none more black.

Lots of chocolate and roast when cooler and seems to subside as it warms allowing cherry notes to pop out along with some peppery spice.

Less chocolate on the taste than the aroma. Quite a bit of roast. Dark fruit and cherry along with a woodiness even though it isn't barrel aged.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation to move the beer along the palate easily.

Quite drinkable for such a roasty stout. The farmhouse yeast adds a great component to this beer. With a little refinement this could be as ridiculous as running through the woods of Bergen with a witch hat and cape.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled in 3/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, smoke, light char, pepper, raisin, fig, light licorice, and roast/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of big dark/roasted malt and moderate fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, smoke, light char, pepper, raisin, fig, light licorice, and roast/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness and earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, toast, dark bread, smoke, light char, pepper, raisin, fig, and roast/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity of big dark/roasted malt and light-moderate yeast ester flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian imperial stout. All around great complexity and robustness of big dark/roasted malt and moderate fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
