Blue Mountain Stout is brewed to be enjoyed together with chocolate deserts or coffee. Dark roasted beans from the worlds best coffee - Blue Mountain - together with bitter chocolate, gives the beer its complexity in aroma and flavor - that coffee and chocolate lovers love.

Thranemeister (28) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2016
50 cl bottle. It pours a clear, dark brown, but definitely not black color with a tan head. Not much of aroma?! Hints of chocolate, but not much else. Taste is light sweetness and weak bitterness. Perhaps a bit salty. Light carbonation and medium body. Almost no bitterness in the finish. Seeing the other ratings I expected a lot more from this beer.

brown color, hissy, cola-like head, down to nil. Milk, some roasted malt in aroma. Not more to be expected. High, sour carbonation, watery caramel. Soft drink.

Echon (306) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2015
Black body with a beige head.
The aroma has roasted malt and a bit of hops. Also metallic notes.
Moderately dry taste with medium bitterness. The flavour is dominated by caramel and roasted malt, but it also has some coffee. Simple but balanced. The taste is good but it should have been fuller. Dry and bitter finish.
Light/medium body with average carbonation.

Simple and decent stout. Above average, but not by a lot.

(6) Hard hitting. Strong and powerful. Intense and rich. Lots of volume - this is a beer with a lot to back it up with.

Once this was a nice beer, but after Harboes Breweries has taken over Gourmetbryggeriet and moved all brewing operations into the brewery in Skælskør it no longer the same. One clear difference is certainly that all Gourmetbryggeriets products now only is launched as canned beer, and it is a clear deterioration in quality as I often encounters a metallic tang of beer cans. Blue Mountain has a slender foam and a very poor aroma of hard roasted malt. It smells most of brown ale or amber ale. The taste is far from coffee and chocolate as I remember it years ago. The color is no longer completely black, more little dark reddish brown. Its flavor is completely blurred and can not really take any particular element. Synthetic malt sweetness with sour flavor and only a few notes of chocolate and coffee. Blue Mountain is otherwise one of the world’s best coffee varieties that Gourmetbryggeriet used for the original version of this stout. Today it has changed quite a bit and the name Blue Mountain alluding perhaps closer to Harboes executive committee have enjoyed a cup of Blue Mountain coffee while mashing with poor / cheap malt has taken place in the brewing kettle. Coffee stout it is at least not anymore, and Harboes has once again used the trick of camouflaging one discount beer as a microbrew. Total sleazy trick that only (once again) proves that Harboes is a top candidate for the title of Denmarks (probably Europes) worst brewery.
