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.

Black with dark brown thick head. Picked up notes of espresso, dark chocoloate and burned malt in the nose. Flavor was very intense with a thick mouthfeel. Oily and burned. Packed with burned malt, espresso, dark chocolate. All grain and boy does that work. Not a dextrose bomb like so many other high ABV stouts. Intense though balanced. Simply lovely - masterpiece!

Bottle from Mane Liquor. I was really impressed with this. Super aniseed driven IS with loads of plum sauce, sultana and fig. Christmas pudding like stuff but that liquorice focus right through the middle. Tasty

500 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a big, creamy, dense, coffee colored head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa, dark bread, some liquorice.
Wonderful, smooth taste of espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, nuts, some wood, slight dark fruits.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes smooth, alcohol warming, roasty, also sweet, with espresso, cocoa, liquorice.

Delicious! Smooth, complex and comfortable. Great balance between roasty and sweet malts, with wonderful espresso and cocoa notes. Not my favourite Imperial Stout, but still pretty much how I like this style.

Gurthnar (3175) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle kindly shared by Werckmeister at his home. Batch #970. Aroma got lots of caramel, toffee, biscuity, coffee. Rich malty complexity. Pitch colour and dark brown head. Taste is incredibly smooth, creamy. Rather sweet but not too much. Huge chocolate, toffee, biscuity and roasted malty base. Completely full body. Oily texture. Warming alcoholic finish. Very tasty, excellent.

0,5 l pullo @ kotimaistelu Wien. Todella tumma vaahto, öljyinen, täysin samea, tummanruskea. Paahteista mallasta, suklaata vähän, pehmeää kahvia. Loistava suutuntuma, täyteläinen. Maussa paahteista mallasta, tummaa suklaata. Arvostan, mutta ei vain mun suosikki.
