Danish. Tag noget godt – og gør det endnu bedre. Det er filosofien bag Double Black Mash. Denne voldsomme Imperial Stout var såmænd rigeligt stor og potent nok i sig selv allerede efter første mæskning. Men vi tænkte, hva’ pokker – lad os give den en tur mere. Så vi mæskede urten ind i endnu en omgang malt og fordoblede alt, som i forvejen var godt - og gik efter noget storladent. Det her er en saftig sag uden nogen for for sukker tilsat. Det er ren malt – og ikke så meget pjat.

English: Take a good thing and make it even better – that’s the philosophy behind Double Black Mash. This huge Imperial Stout was easily big and potent enough after the first mashing, but we thought what the heck let’s give it another spin. So we mashed it in a second time doubling everything that was already good while aiming for great. All grain, heavy duty, no nonsense. Did we hit what we aimed at? Well, that’s really up to you to decide. If you like it big and black this for is your kinda beer for sure.

Douberd (3054) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
(Amager Double Black Mash) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 12% Thick pour, totally black in colour, with a full finger of thick, dark brown head. Excellent retention, medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma has chocolate, alcohol, vanilla, chocolate cake. Great taste, again plenty of chocolate, vanilla, light roasted malts, hints of coffee, notable alcohol, fruity notes. Full thick body with soft carbonation, creamy and smooth, while being sticky on the palate. World class beer.

Hubster (26) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Flydende lakrids. En meget smuk sort cremet øl med et tæt brunt skum. Hvis det ikke var for den totalt olieagtige konsistens, kunne den ligne en kop god espresso (og den smager måske også lidt sådan). Ellers en aroma af blød saltlakrids, vådt træ og korn. Og, hvis man er opmærksom, faktisk også noget god blomsteragtig humle! - der tilføjer noget fersken og fyrretræ. En enormt fyldig, sød smag der breder sig i hele munden og bliver siddende. Man kan også smage alkoholen - vel ikke mærkeligt da den har styrke som vin - det kan give associationer til shots a la Små Grå eller Fisk, hvilket måske er lidt upassende.

Zekada (381) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from a friend. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma has roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is thick and rich with sweet caramel, malts and brown sugar. Palate is thick and has a nice mouthfeel. Overall a really nice beer though a bit tasteless for 12 ABV

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 13, 2015
Very lovely IMP, but feels bit unbalanced and off with some roasted malt tartness. Otherwise, quite intense roasted maltiness, choco presence, cold coffee, licorice, bit soy sauce, kinda light smoked. Interesting and complex brew, only problem - I quite didnt like that light acidic roasted malt impact in aftertaste

SlackerMads (2011) - DENMARK - APR 5, 2015
Bottle batch 999. Thick black pour produces a large creamy dark brown head. Nose has roasted malt, wood, cocoa. Full body, creamy texture, quite salty, thick and sweet with a bitter finish that also has some light alcohol. Flavours of molasses, liquorice, tobacco, dark chocolate, charcoal. Some citrusy hop notes. Warming alcohol. Enjoyable if you like them big, black and salty.

rodenbach99 (3487) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Bouteille de la Batch 601. Meilleure avant le 05.2018. Un liquide presque noire. Un nez qui transpire l’alcool avec des notes de fruits secs, de vin rouge et de mélasse. Une bouche à la texture huileuse, puissante (alcool) chaude et ronde. De belles saveurs de chocolat et de mélasse se dégage de cette alcool. Une bière réconfortante et bien faite.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Aroma: Dark chocolate, alcohol, licorice, roasty, plum, cherry, fon finish i can smell dark coffee - very rich. Apperarance: beer is black without ruby reflexs. Clear with amazing deep brown and fine head, nice lace. Taste: beer is huge, sweet is heavy but is counterpunching by heeeaaavy bitter, a lot of chocolate, coffee, liquire, plums and alcohol. Palate body is mega full, texture is like old engine oil, slick. finish is long and bitter. really mush!

SlovakSniper (3695) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
(Batch 601. Meilleure avant le 05.2018) Presque noire. Belle mousse très foncée qui se transforme lentement en anneau. Un nez proprement danois ou scandinave et largement russe, enfin très Catherine et sans aucun doute à la Henrik Papsø, avec ses malts costauds, ses raisins noirs, sa mélasse cuite et ses arômes de chocolat pur. En bouche, toute la force salvatrice des céréales maltées qui se transforment au contact d’un alcool fruité et poivré : restent sur la langue quelques flocons calcinés, une mélasse cacaotée et une réglisse boostée par la fraîche et propre résine d’une forêt de conifères. Au palais, un liquide liquoreux, soyeux et d’une parfaite lenteur. Une finale qui me plaît énormément, chocolatée, rôtie et finement fumée qui ne laisse aucune opportunité à la douceur. Une grosse bière qui est, ma foi, plutôt facile à boire. Elle est bien robuste et bien sèche avec ses saveurs viriles et ses parfums bien élégants. Délicieuse. Un véritable hit.
