500 ml can into tulip glass, best before 9/4/2019. Pours hazy very dark ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with amazing retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big nutty medium roast coffee, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, peppercorn, mint, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, roasted nuts, vanilla, cream, toasted biscuit, and brown bread; with light notes of licorice, dark fruit, smoke, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, spices, lactose, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big nutty medium roast coffee, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, peppercorn, mint, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, roasted nuts, vanilla, cream, toasted biscuit, and brown bread; with light notes of licorice, dark fruit, smoke, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal, floral, grassy, roast bitterness; and cinnamon/cardamom spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of medium roast coffee, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, peppercorn, mint, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, roasted nuts, vanilla, cream, toasted biscuit, brown bread, light licorice/dark fruit/smoke, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, spices, lactose, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with an awesome roast/hop bitter/sweet and spiciness balance; with no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitter/spiciness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is an incredible imperial brown ale. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, spices, lactose, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink with the mildly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Not overwhelming on any aspect. Amazing balance of rich malts, fruity/nutty coffee, spices, and lactose flavors; with mild fruity yeast and earthy hops against sweetness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing style example as expected of the brewery. Not overly roasty.

From a tall, wrapped, orange-red can, this brew is intense. The appearance is a dark, blackish-brown color. The head is foamy, with some mixed-sized bubbles...tan in color. The aroma is fruity, malty, sugary, and boozy. Wow. Nice flavor...full, with coffee, roasted notes, and plenty of residual sweetness. Full and thick in body. Wow...intense.

500 ml. can.
Moderate pour yields a 1and a 1/2 inch light tan head over a dark brown head with some nice lacing. Head dissipates down to a ring in a few minutes with that lacing sticking around. Nose of slight coffee and even slighter spice. Taste is the standout here as the coffee, cinnamon, and cardamon come together to make a pretty tasty brown ale. Nice feel and overall, I will be having this again. Cheers!

From Degustasur. In Teku glass. Watching Vikings 5x05-06. Plenty of coffee and chocolate with a light and smooth lactose-like feel that dont feel watery because of its balanced taste. Herbal notes and light licorice
