4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brasserie V on my 33rd birthday. Black body with a nice beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma, quite nice again. What an awesome Imperial Stout. Creamy and rich, but perfectly executed and balanced. Roasty, smoky, sweet malt tones. Big smoky tones, really comes out the more it approaches room temp. Some green hoppiness, but covered up by the rich malt bill. Some vanilla in there as well, which just helps to accentuate the chocolate. World Class, awesome beer. Semi sweet bitter chocolate finish.

Jacob snagged this rarity at Andrew’s Cheese shop in LA. After what just happened in Copenhagen, it seems strange to enter this backlogged rating of a Danish Atheist ale.
I haven’t been drinking a lot of imperial stouts lately, but this one hit the spot as a shared nightcap. Rich dark coffee flavors, rather sweet but not overly so, quite intense for <9%. Tasty stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Taphouse, Copenhagen, 13.1.2015. Stark black with tan head. A little ink, lots of smoke and a little woodsy aroma, followed by a smoked salmon, a little bitterness and phenolic taste. Full body, fizzy, long, bitter and smoky finish. One of the best beers I have ever had.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle bb08/2018, EU swap 7.0, tak skal du have pmgep. Brown-black pour. Aroma of pear syrup, stale raisins, liquorice, milk chocolate, aquavit, gravy. Upon first sip roo much fruit syrups in taste for me, although balanced well enough by dry roast and a bouquet of near-identical hops. Sharp alcholol edge throughout. Overall rather rough and sweet, this Danish welfare version of an socially responsible atheist brew.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Plovmand, thanks! A promising, roasted, chocolatey, pumpernikel-filled malt base is ruined by the addition of syrups. The roast tries hard to battle against the syrupy, artificial sweetness but is betrayed by the solvent-like alcohol that washes away the creamy first impression and makes your tongu roll together. The aftertaste isn’t merely boozy, it’s ordinary vodka. Beers, especially big beers, should be conditioned before filled into bottles.

Fast schwarzes Bier mit sehr schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr schokoladig, röstmalzig, Kaffee und etwas Vanille. Geschmack kräftig röstmalzig, Vanille, viel Schokolade und Kaffee, zum Ende hin wird das ganze auch alkoholisch.

Bottle from systembolaget. Smell is sweet and strong with coffee and chocolates. It pours black with a rich brown head. Taste is both sharp and deep. A deep taste of coffee, chocolates and roasted malts with a subtle oakiness and a smokey finish. Palate is a bit thin. expecting more from this kind of beer. The palate is really the only disapointing thinh about the beer. An overall really solid beer.
