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.

Ragnampiza (673) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 22, 2015
500 ml bottle bought from Les Vignerons and drank at Wench Pub with Saso. Pitch black, poring pretty much like motor oil, with a big, creamy and persistent dark beige head. Powerful nose with all those components you expect from such a beer: milk chocolate, espresso coffee, vanilla beans, toasted malts and just a subtle meaty presence. Not much alchool per se. Pretty sweet through out, perhaps there is a hint of grainy bitterness but it’s almost non existent. Dark chocolate and vanilla in the taste, with a pleasent moderate warming sensation. Slick and sirupy as expected, coating the lips with every sip, but ridicolously drinkable for the ABV. Soft carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. Really great.

kerenmk (3089) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 22, 2015
Bottle shared at a smoked beer tasting at our place. Black, with a frothy tan head. A little phenolic, a little peaty, with sunflower seed saltiness in the nose as well as cocoa. Chocolate, a little smoke and a little phenol in the mouth. Full body, mildly phenolic finish and quite fizzy.

heman (153) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 20, 2015
Piwo jest nieprzejrzyście czarne z piękna, intensywną pianą, niesamowicie zdobiąca szkło. Aromat zdominowany jest chmielem. Mamy dużo nut trawiastych i ziołowych, pomiędzy, którymi majaczy delikatny dym - kojarzący się z szynką. W tle ukazuje się gęsta, skondensowana czekolada w płynie. Od pierwszej chwili kubki smakowe atakuje goryczka, wzrasta od średniej do średnio-wysokiej. Doskonale równoważy ją pełnia piwa, z posmakami kawy i czekolady oraz nut wędzonych w tle. Każdy łyk pozostawia posmak mocnego espresso z ziołowym charakterem chmielu.

Theydon_Bois (12102) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerko, 15/04/15. Pitch black with a decent tan covering retains well, good lacing ensues. Nose is bitter roast, chocolate, spice, charr, toffee. Taste comprises chocolate, light smoke, dark fruit rinds, toffee fudge, roast malt, molasses, earthy vibes. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation - overcooked in this department, semi drying close with a touch of warming booze but kept will in check for a double digit number.
