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.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 From bottle. Very dark brown, almost black with a small brown head, which dissolves to a bit of foam with lacing. Medium low carbonation. Coffee, malt and dark chocolate aroma. Sweet taste with a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle 66 cl. from 2010 (Best before 03/2010). Thick dark brown body and a nice creamy brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, basement aromas. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Thin body with a sticky feel.

visionthing (3764) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2015
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.

Copenhagen 26/8 2014. 50 cl can from Netto. Pours very dark brown without head of any kind. Sweet smell with hints of chocolate and oranges. Dull mouthfeel due to almost no carbonation. Good balance of the sweetness and the bitterness. I like the taste but I am not too happy with the lack of carbonation.

Moolesen (338) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 50cl. Black with a light brown head. Malty nose. I’ve tried 3 beers from this brewery tonight, and this is the third one. They all have the same nose. A bit strange. Flavour of weak stout. I don’t taste the coffee or chocolate, no clue how much has been added to the beer, but it can’t be much. There is plenty of malt though. With more hops to balance with the malt and more coffee/chocolate, this could potentially be a good beer, but for now it’s a missed chance.

500ml can. 04-11-2014.
Courtesy of Zita and Hansen. Thanks a lot!.
In short: metalic stout.
Pours dark copper with nice light tan head. Short head retention, some lacing. Roasty, caramel, liquorice, metalic aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is average stout, roasty, coffee, some liquorice and again metalic flavours. Nothing remarkable, a bit dull, but probably a good supermarket beer.
