What about the beer?
Colour is black with a small vanishing beige head. Aroma has fruit candy, vanilla and chocolate. Taste starts with boozy fruity bitter roast. Booze-soaked sweet citrus and biting bitter roast take over with liquorice and chocolate side notes. Towards the end sweet orange and bitter citrus-filled liquorice get on top and are joined by roasted boozy flavour. Aftertaste has sweet orange, bitter grapefruit and lasting boozy roast.
Strong citrus-packed Imperial Stout. It’s a merciless battle between the roasty-boozy flavours and the bitter’n’sweet citrus. Fierce but beautiful. Superb Impy from the Danish brewgods.


As U2’s Pride (In the Name of Love) is as far as possible from the deadly sin, I couldn’t pick it. On the other hand, that wouldn’t have matched with the brew. Anyway, I was trapped in the title, so there were many paths to choose from. Soil had that right kind of balance between rough aggressiveness and lyrical self-centeredness in their song, so I picked that. —
