Danish: Vores bud på en anderledes stout med tørverøget malt. Her er tale om en rigtig mandfolkeøl med meget af det hele. Øllet er brygget på ristede bygmalte, birkerøget malt, tørverøget malt, karamelmalte og alemalt. Øllet er humlet mere end ellers for at balancere den kraftige maltprofil. Og hvornår kan man så drikke denne øl? Til maden er det en udpræget dessertøl eller til mørk chokolade. Kraftige oste er også et fint tilbehør, men det er altså også tilladt at drikke den uden noget til andet end en god lænestol.

Bottle. Pours black, with an enormous creamy mocha head. Aroma is sweet, smoky malts, with coffee, cocoa and wooden barrels, as well as vanilla and tobacco. Full, creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with muscovado, lactose and coffee, as well as a fruity bitterness from dark chocolate, tobacco and wood.

probstblueribbon (3157) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
500 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB 30 08 2021.

App.: Deep brown-black with a decent light mocha head. Aroma: Rick molasses, dark chocolate, smokiness, quite dark, dank and peppery, there is a pervasive bright note (not infection) that I can’t place, quite deep and rich. Palate: Medium-full body, relaxed carbonation, syrupy and viscous. Flav.: Molasses, smoke, dark chocolate, the overriding notes are a kinda medicinal herb (eucalyptus?) and alcohol; quite dark, still peppery, odd due to the medicinal thing; dry with fairly big bitterness, warming (bordering on stinging) alcohol and a long, mouth-coating dark malt finish.

Some familiar smells/flavours with some unexpected twists and turns.

50cl bottle. Pours pitch black wityh a thick uneven bubbly dark beige head. Very beautiful in the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, bitter coffee, peat, light acidic note. Taste is strong roastiness, coffee, bitter chocolate, light acidity again. Good bitter aftertaste with ground coffee and roasted notes. Thick oily mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation. Outstanding beer, not overly complex but perfectly balanced. Loved it.

dambor (98) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2015
Pours pitch black with a beautifil head. A big plus for the appearance since a 10% ABV imperial stout has rarely such a nice head lasting for so long and leaving a nice lacing on glass Aroma: dark smoked malts, peat, plum, caramel, some hopps in the background. Taste: peat, a lot of roasted malts with smoke character in the beginning, including dark coffee, followed by pleasant hoppy bitterness in the finish (definitely a plus). Palate is warming. This is a very original imperial stout. Fantastic stuff!

Amazingly heavy and powerful imperial stout. The aroma is huge with dark chocolate and licorice.

Moolesen (266) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle 50cl. Pitch black with a very dark brown foamy head. Strong aroma’s of peat, coffee and chocolate. Waauw. Good first impression. Very intense flavour of peat, espresso and lot of hops which together are absolute great. Long lasting bitter finish. This is a beer you’ll remember, and this is meant positively. Great beer

Piwo o sredniej piance, brazowej, jakby dwufazowej, srednio trwalej, ale niestety nie oblepia szkla. Gesta czarna oleista ciecz. Zapach kawy zbozowej oraz palonych slodow. W smaku lukrecja, wedzone posmaki oraz kawa z dodatkiem mleka. Sliwka w czekoladzie i nieco miodu pitnego. Wytrawny finisz z lekka slodycza na ustach. Dobre
