COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knap op og nyd en mørk, massiv og mystisk stout. Føl de cremede dråber flyde helt ud i dine fingerspidser og lune dig så dejligt som mormors hjemmestrikkede tæppe. Mærk de godt 10 procent alkohol dulme dit sind, og pludselig forvandles selv mørke tider til noget rart og mildt.

My kind of x-max brew. Very well balanced body. Not to sweet, complex and with a warming alcohol without overdooing it.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. A deep dark brown pour with a nice frothy dark head. The nose is fresh with notes of coffee, caramelmalts, licorice and cloves. I also find some citric notes in the aroma along with a mild smokyness. The taste is first of all pretty bitter but develops into a nice coffee blends with both chocolate and caramel notes - but with the bitterness consantly present. The mouthfeel is medium creamy with a bitter finish - a finish where you really can sense the alcohols biting ipact on your lipps and tounge.

Rating #454, bottle from Ølbutikken

A black beer with an ok head. The aroma is liquorice, chocolate, salt, sal ammoniac and surprisingly also a bit of berries. Flavor of chocolate, salt, sal ammoniac, liquorice, bitter hops and the alcohol is more obvious than expected, but it still very nice. This is definately a great brew, but I would have wanted a more rounded palate, as this can seem a little "hard".

20-NOV-2010, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". Dark brown with huge head of big bubbles that quickly disappears. Lovely roasted nose with chocolate and sweet coffee. Taste is dry with loads of roasted stuff. A burning sensation much like chili ends the whole thing. Is that really the alcohol kicking in so late? I did not noctice it before, but I can see it is 10,5%...! Not so imperial stout like more like an imperial porter? No X-mas in this one, but I really prefer this to a "normal" X-mas brew.

Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Huge thick light brownish head that really lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Pitch black color. Thick aroma of chocolate, vanilla, dark dried fruit, lovely toasted malty and sweet chestnut like notes. Light underlying floral bitterness in the aroma as well. Over the palate came mild warming alcohol, sweet dark chocolate, liquorish, light floral, dried fruits and some roasted malty notes as well. Overall quite complex malty profile in this beer. Moderated dusty to dry texture, but quite filling mouthful at the same time. Full bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated to heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering liquorish-vanilla, sweeten dark dried fruity and light roasted malty finish with a warming feeling all the way down. Quite drinkable for a 10 + % beer!

Bottled. Black coloured with a read gleam. Dense light brown head. ARoma of heavy roast, chocolate, liqourice, unroasted coffee, vague herbs. Flavour of coffee, liqourice, heavy roast, vague fruits, some caramel, dark dark notes. Quite full bdoeid. Roasty coffeeish bitterness in the end. I tend to really like this, eventhough it is a little rough edged.

Rune (9296) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
330ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken and shared with Skinnyviking. More or less completely dark in body appearance. Rocky, off-white head. Smell of roasted, sweet malts and dry hops. Nice blended taste of dusty hops, earthy malts and chocolate including a touch of coffee. Feels good and well bodied in the mouth. (Pre-Christmas in a room no. 285 at Absalon Hotel in Copenhagen, 07.11.2010).

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Pours a deep brown with a vague orange hue and a huge and lively light brown head leaving some laces. Hard roasted malt in the nose, some vanilla and bitter dark chocolate also. Solid body, hard roasted malts, dark fruits and vanilla. Very malt bitter finish - ashy and dusty. Nice one. 171110
