COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Previously brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

Danish: Bryggeriet Djævlebryg and the Danish Atheist Society have entered into an unholy alliance and the result is "Godless": This first batch is a somehow accessible imperial stout with its 8.9% abv. It offers burnt notes from the malt mingled with sweet nuances and a warming depth from the alcohol. This brew is primarly aimed at members of the Atheist Society, but it will also be available in selected shops and bars. In these times, when companies are expected to show social responsibility, we in the brewery have decided to follow suit: For each bottle or draft sold we donate 1 Danish Krone to the Danish Atheist Society.

Draft. A pitch black beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coffee, alcohol, roasted malt, and chocolate, as well as light notes of vegetables. The flavor is sweet and very malty and very hard burnt and also with lots of chocolate, and medium notes of alcohol and nuts, leading to a dry bitter finish.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2009 2009-05-13, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 6-4-8-4-14=36
Black color; big creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and ashes. Good body strength, smooth mouthfeel; the chocolate malt is well supported by a nice sweetness, and there is some more roasted malt flavor later; correct bitterness. Not impressive but easily drinkable and solid.

2009-03-13, draught at Ørsted, Copenhagen, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Black color; thin creamy head. Mild aroma, very light roasted malt, cardboard and sourness. Medium body, the mouthfeel is very smooth, round, with mild roasted malt and chocolate flavor, and correct bitterness. Very pleasant to drink, but without complexity.

2008-10-07, draught at The Cockney Pub, Århus, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Black color, creamy head. Quite good, smooth Imperial Stout, some nice roasted malt flavor, but also a light infection going through.
