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.

Pours thick black with a dense, light brown head. Aroma of peat, dark choc and roasted malt. Thick mouthfeel, taste is more roasted malt and chocolate well balanced by stingy bitterness. Semi sticky finish.

gunnar (4868) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours pitch black with a very big creamy tanned head. Aroma of peated and smoked malts, tar, liquorice and hard roasted coffee, sure inviting one. Taste is smooth, loaded with peated smoke, heavy malty body, resiny and minty hops towards the smooth lingering finish. Very good IS in my book

Pitch black beer with smallish head and nice lacing. Aroma has dark chocolate, roasted coffee, malts, syrup and smoke. Taste is sweet with dark chocolate, syrup, roasted malts. Ends with really sweet mouth feel. Oily body and low carbonation. Sweet and a little bit of smoked imperial stout.

Metalchopz (2124) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Single from the LCBO with a best before date 30 08 2023. Pours real dark brown colour with a big mocha-brown head, great retention and lots of sticky foam lace. Mild roasted malt aromas at first, but turns into something bad at one point. Something like wet socks and maybe some metal. Thankfully, this goes away and some nice butterscotch notes and coffee blend in with the burnt malt. Oily and slick mouthfeel, medium to full bodied. Lots going on in the flavours with some nice bitterness from the grassy hops, covering the roasted malts. Hints of licorice, chocolate, coffee and light alcohol. No burning though. Too bad, not getting the peaty malts talked about in the description.

Marstonlad (332) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Draught at Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki. A black color with a medium-sized dense head. Aroma has strong roasty notes, intense but not overpowering, with tar and some dark chocolate and rye pudding. Taste displays a strong malt character with variety. Initial light sweetness fades into a robust roasty notes with smoke and tar. Balancing bitterness appears in the finish. The palate is round, full-bodied and smooth. Very intense in taste but wonderfully balanced, black magic indeed.
