COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

LoFi (1557) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 Pours pitch black, even against the light, with a thick brown head that disappears quickly. Chocolate, fruit, some hops, and a bit of alcohol in the aroma. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, cream, honey, licorice, ashes, some smoke and a cocoa bitterness. Not much alcohol in the flavour. Quite complex and very nice. Raised it from 4.3 to 4.4 after having it on draught.

Countbeer (4317) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle: Thanks to Fonefan. Very nice vast brown foamy head with a black beer beneath the foamy covering. Smell tar, carbon dioxide, burnt malts, smoke and a hint of some dark ingredients like dark spices and earth. Taste is a full bodied mix of tar, smoke, espresso, earth, burnt wood, coal, bitter. All in all a dark black tasting beer with uber dark ingredients. Full bitter grassy coffee aftertaste. Low carbo, full body and soft, almost silky, mouthfeel.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle sample at Beer Enthusiast release tasting, Bergen. Pours a very black colour with a small light brown head. Looks like espresso. I could not have dreamed of a better aroma where I found leather, tar, strong coffee, dried fruit and a touch of smoke. Smoke is even more evident in the flavour with touch of fire/burnt wood, coffee, bitter chocolate and dark, dark, sweet berries, chocolate truffles and port wine. Oily mouth feel, and light bitterness. A beautiful imperial stout with great balance

Bottle. Pitch black with a minimal dark head. Really nice smell of roasted coffee. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Taste is roasted coffee, hops, malt and something ashy. Sweet and smooth with a long bitter and smokey aftertaste. Really good.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Hornbeer... ci sanno fare con le Imperial Stout. Aroma di malti tostati, cioccolato caffè, liquirizia con una nota affumicata. Complesso. Al palato cremosa, poco carbonata, piena e con un attacco dolce. Le note sono quelle omnipresenti di cioccolato, caffè amaro nell’intermezzo. Verso la fine note luppolate. Il tutto strutturato su un leggero sentore fumoso. Eccezionale.

PapaVillum (399) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, 50 års-gave fra Michael Drejer - tak! 26. marts 2014. Sort ufiltreret "olie" i form af en Stout med 2 cm tyk moccafarvet skumtop, som langsomt svinder til 1 cm. Skummet bobler i midten af glasset videre og danner sin egen ø...noget ejendommeligt. Duften er "mørk" og røget. Duft af den tørverøgede malt er tydelig, men også noter af engelsk lakrids. Tyk lækker cremet stout rammer smagsløgene. Masser af røg i smagen og masser af tør eftersmag, men også langt indtryk. Lækker underliggende sødme af den tilsatte karamelmalt ligger midt i smagsbilledet. Jeg vil jo kalde denne øl en Imperial Stout, og én af de bedste, jeg har smagt, omend Hornbeer nøjes med titlen "en anderledes stout". Indholdet af kuldioxid er elegant tilpasset dette skønne bryg. En meget komplet øl, som klar skal gentages OG anbefales!

Brix (633) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2010
Tasted 2010-03-30. Bottle. Pours black(!) with tan head. Slightly smoked aroma - like a darkv, spicy bbq-sauce mixed with coffee. The flavours are powerful with your standard stout roastedness, but surprisingly without the strong bitterness. Still bitter, but in a much more mellow way, than I expected. I read ppl saying this is outta balance. I don’t agree. Very balanced and very drinkable.

esp0r (1909) - NORWAY - APR 3, 2011
Tap at Schoukjelleren shared with Daje. Black, creamy espressh head. Smells of liquorice, coffee, roasted malts. Taste of tar, smoke, liquorice and some coffee. Malts too. Feel is very oily, almost as tar. Finish is very hoppy and bitter. Also some malt bitterness. A very good and goodlooking beer.
