Vestergaard (1589) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares WLZBRZ edition. Pours a pitch black with a big, dark brown espresso head, but fairly short lasting. Aroma is very roasty, roasty malts, lots of nice coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, dark caramel. Taste is roasty bitter, but with a nice caramel sweetness. After taste is sweet, dark caramel, oily, untill the far end, which is just dry, roasty coffee all over! Full sticky body, medium low carbonation. Wow, this is great!

Pours easily from the bottle, little to no carbonation, very slick. Toffee, coffee on the nose with deeper vanilla as it warms. Deep coffee flavor with imperial chocolate bitterness on the back end. Mellow enough that it’s hard to believe it’s a double stout!

Enjoyed on draft at the Three Floyds brewpub during the Florida Man Loses Bet tap takeover by Cigar City on November 2. The pour is dark black with a soapy ring of khaki colored head and a little lace on the glass. The aroma is strong coffee. All coffee with a little lactose and some light chocolate and butter toast notes. I love the coffee and the light mocha. The flavor is great. Bitter coffee roast up front with a light chocolate mocha on the back end. It’s not complex. But the few notes are huge. The mouth feel is thick and viscous with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly bitter chocolate coffee finish. It’s great! I can only imagine what the rum barrel aging would do to this baby. Damn good beer

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 Large shared bottle pours near black and opaque with a very durable light brown head. Moderate coffee aroma and flavor. Bitter-sweet with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Very thick, full body that’s nearly chewy. Good carbonation level.

Bottle split at the ABC Beers pre Borefts tasting, 24/09/15. Black topped with a dirty tan swirl. Nose is rich malt, coffee grinds, spice, tar, chocolate. Taste comprises coffee cake, chocolate fudge, sweet licks, light roast, toffee. Full bodied, fine carbonation, subtle warming alcohol in the close. Solid impy, good balance.
