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.

Vanillin and roast on the nose. Strong flavor of raisins with a talc-y finish.

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 (11455) - 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.

Poured deep dark brown with a healthy beige head. Aroma of toasted malt and milk chocolate. Full body, flavour as the aroma, quite peaty, sweet berries.

Scopey (8277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Keg at Craft Clerko. It pours black with a small tan head. The nose is sweet, roasted malt, smoke, bitter-sweet, earth, cocoa, ash and tobacco. The taste is bitter roast, earth, ash, smoke, earth, drying, tobacco, light alcohol and charred wood with a very dry finish. Full body and average carbonation. Pretty, pretty dry finish.

Beergaard (169) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2015
Quite smokey aroma but noticable hints of dried fruit, dark malt and hops as well. Taste wise it is very well ballanced. Smoked malt (not too much), dried fruit, bitter chocolate and coffee, hops. Beautifull

Hubster (15) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2015
Meget røget aroma. Al den røgede malt er efter min smag for dominerende, og alkoholen er der også for meget af. Men bortset fra det, en spændende aroma, og ret beset en ganske god øl. Der er også noget rugbrød, vådt træ, tørret frugt og mørk chokolade. En sort øl, med rigtigt godt, tæt skum!

Taboada (466) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAR 21, 2015
Tasted from the tap at the Barcelona Beer festival (13/03/2015). Pours black colour with a medium foamy and creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, red fruits, vainilla and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet with presence of licorice and chocolate. Aftertaste is great. Well balanced beer. Next one please!

tom10101 (3557) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle (500 ml). Best Before 17-12-2022.

Appearance: Black with a tall thick creamy brown head and good lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, resin, ashes, smoke, vanilla, molasses, alcohol and spices. Nothing is overpowering.

Taste: A bit less balanced than the aroma. The ashes and smoke takes more place (a bit too much). Sweetness level is moderate to medium. Thee’s also coffee, resin, molasses, black liquorice, moderate spiciness and moderate roasted bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Oily, but also fluffy and airy mouthfeel. Ashy and roasted finish with a mild lingering molasses sweetness.

Overall: A great looking stout like most Hornbeer RIS (and european RIS generally) with a nice mouthfeel. Balance isn’t bad, but it’s a bit too ashy for my liking. Tasty.
