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.

Neljään eri lasiin porukalla kaadettaessa kaikkiin muodostuu aluksi pelkkää beigeä vaahtoa. Lopulta odottamisen jälkeen oluttakin alkaa näkyä. Enpä ole aikaisemmin nähnyt näin hurjasti vaahtoavaa imperial stoutia. Tuoksultaan olut on vaniljainen, mausteinen, hieman kahvinen ja suklainen. Melkoista mentholaniskaneliajoulumaustetta. Maku on kuivan kahvinen, hieman katkera, lakritsinen ja suklainen.

hopscotch (9843) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2011
Bottle… Space Coast Craft Beer Festival 2011 … Pours very dark (probably black – poor lighting in the venue keeps it a mystery) with a HUGE, frothy beige head. Upon first glance, I’m thinking “infection,” but am quickly proven wrong by the uber chocolaty, deeply roasted, licorice-laded nose. Medium to full-bodied and quite fizzy. The flavor is a surprise, but of the pleasant variety – black patent, chocolate and caramel malt dance across my palate, but in a dry, lightly sweet, reserved way. Whether planned or not, a brett-like yeast has crisped things up, thinned things out and muted any sharp bitterness or overbearing sweetness that may have been present in the beer when first bottled. Crisp, chocolaty, dry finish with deep, wet kisses of chocolate, espresso, licorice and alcohol heat to remind me that a brewer and bacteria can alter a malt-loaded imperial stout, but neither can completely beat a good one down. Reminds me a lot of a bretted brown ale I tried several months ago at a tasting down in Hollywood, Florida. That was a triumph of a brew… and so is this. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Pours dark with a huge brown head. Aroma of liquorice, caramel, coffee and intense roastyness. Taste of hard roasted malts, coffee, bitter liquorice and some hops at the end. Some sensable alcohol and dryness in there.

Bottle. Huge head that unfortunately went over the top of both glass and bottle and kept flowing for 3 minutes straight! Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich licorice, coffee, chocolate, roast malt and hops.

Bottle from the Struise beershop. Cloudy brown beer, frothy tan head. Semi dry palate. A little prickly carbonation. Rich dark malt with a strong coffee streak. Some cream as well. Joins up nicely and in to a very drinkable beer.

Countbeer (4908) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle: Thanks to Fonefan. This one gushed but not in the way that much beer was lost, it gushed a snake of foam. 3 glasses full and the foam kept coming! After a while, when the airy brown foam disappeared, a deep dirty brown beer appeared. Smell hops, coffee, hints of liquorice, spices, toffee, a a slight hint of earth. Taste is a nice mix of coffee, wood, alcohol, whiskey, liquorice, grass, herbs, dark fruits, raisin, fresh, roasted malts, light bitter, brown sugars and a touch of dryness. Very nice coffee grass aftertaste. After the foam disappears the beer had low carbo, a full body and a soft light dry mouthfeel. Watery texture.

JorisPPattyn (8124) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2011
Gushing to two glasses of dark greige foam, lasting annoyingly long and leading eventually to an ultimately dark brown beer. Dark chocolate or chocolate sauce, roasted aromas; hops, bark & undergrowth. Nice, because not too overpowering. Roasted, again chocolate (maybe a bit burned -sauce); bitterish and spicy, but with massive maltpresence underneath. Bit unidimensional, not really complex. Very well-bodied, oily, filling, and of course the impressive head with serious carbonation. Quite OK, but there’s better I.S. around.

bierkoning (10736) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle. Almost black and opague. Pours a huge head. Dried red fruit and licorice in the aroma. Malty alcoholic flavor with roast, pipe tobacco, ash and licorice. Pipe tobacco in the finish. Maybe just a bit out of control, still delicious.
