3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

En god mørk øl, tør og bitter smag, god rund i smagen også. Rigtig god øl, specielt til den ofte lave pris.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 50cl bottle from Føtex, Frederikshavn. Pours very dark brown with a minimal, beige head. Weak malty and slightly roasty aroma with hints of coffee, caramel and hints of chocolate and licorice. Mild flavours, nothing unpleasant, but nothing exiting either - fairly balanced and easy to drink. Fair enough.
