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!

Really heavy hitter! Pitch black, thick, almost syrupy with a lot of alcohol, chocolate, roasted malts, some licorice and raisins as well. Sweet and strong with some molasses. Only downside with this one is the finish with a bit too much alcohol, otherwise a next to perfect imperial stout.

CraftBeerNick (1838) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle at home, 3rd June 16. Pours deep black and viscous with an attractive tan head on top. Aroma is heady liquorice, roasted malts, chocolate, leather. Taste is rich, liquorice, leather, very complex, sweet and sticky, but good balance of bitterness. Velvet smoothness and full mouthfeel. Excellent

wrlangin (133) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2016
500 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Pours black with small dark brown head that dissipates quickly. Very mild aroma of toasted malt and chocolate. Palette is smooth and a little syrupy. Flavours are big, with toasted malt, maybe a little charred, and chocolate. Hints of anise, perhaps. Hops are present in the background. Definitely a big imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 Botella 50 cl tomada en el Lupulo en el momento 09..03..2016. Lote 1251 hasta 02..2021. (r191). Color negro intenso con poca espuma beige oscuro. Aromas y sabores o tensos maltosos bastante tostados con toques de cafés especias vainillas y gran sobredosis de cacao. Ligeros toques de uvas pasas. Cuerpo intenso de 12 vol que se nota desde el principio y mejora sobretodo al coger temperatura. Bastante densa y Espumosa casi masticando pero fina y un toque alicorada. Muy buena.

Bottle from VilleValla Pub. Pours pitch dark body with light Brown head. Smells of chocolate, espresso, malts. Taste of dark malts, dark chocolate, liqorice, some espresso. Quite good, but I’m not a fan of liqorice so not my kind of beer.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a nice brown head. Aroma of vanilla, dark sweet malts, chocolate, caramel, butterscotch, toasted malts, roasted malts and just bold and sweet smelling really. The taste is sweet with some weak roasted notes. You get some chocolate, vanilla, dark sweet malts, caramel and weak hops as well. This is sweet and maybe a tad too sweet because it has nothing to balance it out. Yet I enjoyed it as a slow sipper and the looks and mouthfeel on this one is on point for me.
