COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What compels a journey- Beyond the realm of possibilities? Peak XV- The Earth’s highest mountain- Was first measured in 1856, then renamed Mt. Everest nine years later. In 20 years the ascent was proposed, but it would be another 68 years (and several unsuccessful attempts later) before the summit was finally reached. In admiration of the human spirit and the courage required to accomplish this supreme feat, we offer this dark towering brew. Subtle undertones of vanilla are brought forth using multiple sources of whole vanilla beans, followed by a stupendous nose of dark chocolate - Provided by locally sourced cacao nibs. The flavor is massive chocolate, creamy vanilla, toasty and malty. The finish is epic.

fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2012
Tasting at Papsø’s
Dark brown color, close to black, with small head, no retention. Aroma of cheap vanilla and cheap coffee, pond water. The body is weaker than expected, the mouthfeel is semi-dry; it has a strong flavor of dark chocolate and roasted malts, with some alcohol booziness; some liquorice too; moderate sweetness in the final.
Chaotic; too easy to brew something like this, just a lot of ingredients.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Elwood. Pours a clear orangey brown with a small beige head. Sweet roasty nose. Medium body, sweet roast with the vanilla really shining through - gets a little cloying perhaps. Some sweet licorice as well. Roasty finish with some late alcohol. 160612
