Garlic_of_Doom (364) - SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller. Black with a small dark brown head. Lots of roast and coffee in the aroma. A bit faint, did I have a runny nose at the time? Taste is great with sweetness, dark chocolate, lots of raisin, roasted malt, vinous notes and slight alcohol at the end. Smooth mouth feel, full bodied and low to medium carbonation. Smooth and bitter chocolatey after taste.
A very well balanced Imperial Stout, my first offering from HF and lot the last.

humlelala (882) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2013
(on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends) Pours black with little, tan head. Decent retention and good lace. Aroma is a well balanced coffee with subtle hints of what resembles oak. Alcohol is well masked. Oily texture, full body without being too filling, soft carbonation and a lingering, dark and slightly sweet coffee finish. Flavour is somewhat remniscient of dark chocolate but without much bitterness. Very smooth and balanced in it's expression with easy drinkability, which is rare for the style. Girlfriend says: "It's really good!"

yourefragile (136) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 13, 2013
On tap at the HF Anniversary Party 2011. Pours a syrupy, viscous black with a surprisingly large dark tan head. Aroma is decadent blend of roasted malt, rye spice, milk chocolate and ground coffee. Flavor is initially caramel malt and coffee roast before finishing with silky sweet chocolate, mild hop bitterness and spiciness peeking through from the rye. Thick, chewy, oily and silky; perfect coating mouthfeel. Trace amounts of alcohol. The rye and coffee combination push this from good to great and make it standout from other stouts. Overall, excellent balance, persistent flavor in the finish and surprising amounts of nuance make this an exceptional imperial stout.

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color, with brown head, persistent. Aroma of roasted malt, pot coffee, light pepper. Too high carbonation, that provides some smoothness, but overall spoils the mouthfeel; good dark chocolate flavor, enough sweetness to make it pleasant, it has a mild spicy and sour character, a touch of liquorice and coffee, and a pungent final. Good, but not cohesive.
