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.

pivnizub (9206) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle: Amber coloured, medium-sized, slowly collapsing, tanned head, tobacco and leather in the fruity-malty nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; a certain bitterness in the fruity-leathery finish. Not bad....

Grima (2182) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2012
330ml bottle from Bierkompass
Extreme gushing!!! The beer in the glass is black and has a very long lasting, brown head. It smells a lot like chocolate, toffee and coffee, very malty, slightly caramelly. Starts with massive malt body, with lots of dark chocolate and coffee, slightly alcoholic in the middle, burnt toffee and caramel. Goes into a slightly alcoholic, coffee bitter, malty finish with aromas of burnt roasted malts.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
In short: A heavily and strangely spiced burgundy beer calling itself an imperial stout. Fun beer for me but I don’t recommend it
How: Bottle 330ml, Consumed probably fresh a few weeks after purchase
The look: A gusher. Opaque burgundy body topped by a short lived beige head
In long: Nose is quite spicy with some of the traditional Belgium Christmas beer spices (nutmeg, cloves, etc.) but hot chinese dishes style of spices. Taste has crusty rye bread (although I suspect the beer has no rye in it), toasted bbq peanuts, chistmas beer spices, All-Dressed Ruffles™ chips, Dr Pepper™. All that on a cookie malt backbone. If you can’t tell by my description, I thought it was a weirdly spiced beer. bbq peanuts and All-Dressed Ruffles™ chips eater and Dr Pepper drinker. So that weird spiciness was kind of fun for me. The beer is called Christmas In New-York Hotel Room, and if there is a lesson to be learnt from the Christmas nativity scene it is the following: don’t do like Joseph, always call ahead and make a reservation if you want to make sure you get a room in a Inn.

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled. Hazy murky dark brown colour with a quite big creamy off-white head that leaves nice lace. Not a gusher. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, some caramel, chocolate and mild coffee as well. Flavour is very similar with also some liquorice. Quite rich on the carbonation, but otherwise very nice!

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Black beer with huge ochre foam, very fine and fierce crackling, submarines of yeast. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, mocha, black licorice, hints of tar. The taste is rich, dark choc, coffee, toast, malt syrup, licorice, burnt malt, christmas pudding and raisin, note of rhum, christmas spices. Final ample, supple and creamy-smooth-mossy.

Beer4000 (5046) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2011
330 ml bottle on the train to RBNAG-11. Gusher (fu**ing embarrassing on the train then). Really beautiful body anyway. Almost clear, dark brown with a big brown head. Aroma is coffee, mocha, roasted malt and spices. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, spices and decent bitterness. Fine body, bitter aftertaste with some yeast. Feels a bit warm in the mouth. Delicious.

thirdeye11 (5776) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
(12oz bottle that foamed quite a bit, from bu11zeye) clearish deep brown with soapy deep tan head. Nose is roasty, dark chocolate, bit herbal and stale coffee. Taste of alcohol, very hot, burns, chili peppers, fudge, quite unbalanced. Linger burns the throat.
