look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a very dark brown, nearly black color, with a frothy dark brown head. One of the darkest heads I've ever seen. Dissipates quickly. Not much lacing.

Aroma is heavily roasted caramel malts, with a little bit of coffee and molasses. Alcohol. Some pleasant vanilla.

Taste has more of the heavily roasted caramel malts. Surprisingly sweet for a stout. Roasted coffee beans and chocolate stick to the tongue. A little bit of a bite from the alcohol. Sweet milk chocolate and molasses. A surprising amount of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full and thick. A little bit of alcohol warmth. One of the easier Stouts you'll find to drink, but by no means a chugger.

Overall, not my favorite RIS, but still very good. Definitely recommend, especially if you can find it at a good price.

Burnt malt bitterness overtake all other flavors with pronounced alcohol heat when swallowing. The hop flavor is there but indistinguishable. The beer is sweet smelling. Would try again.

This one is not readily available in the UK but I found it in the Systembolaget on a visit to Sweden.

Pours dark black and syrupy looking. Small head that leaves good lacing.

The aroma is roasted notes mixed with coffee and dark chocolate.

The taste is roasted with a marmite falvour and a lot of complex chocolatey, coffee like suggestions and vanilla traces. Notably bitter as a balance to all the sweeter flavours.Very tasty and satisfying.

Mouthfeeel is thick and syrupy and very full. Extremely satisfying.

Overall a great imperial stout with tons of depth and complexity.

94/100
