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.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, - FEB 9, 2014
This is brilliant. Dark body with frothy brown head. Burnt malt aroma... so amazing... caramel & chocolates. Body is thick and compliments all the flavours so well! Finishing is bitter and enjoyable.

Bamsen78 (3140) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy but stable tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and lactose, with hints of fruit. Roasty flavour with notes of malt and coffee and some touches of dark chocolate. Lingering, bitter aftertaste. Good.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours an orangeish-brownish black with a resilient dark beige head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, hazelnuts, dark coffee. Flavor is chocolate, loads of roast, coffee, ash. Finish is coffee, cocoa bitterness. Extremely bitter. Some very sweet caramel. Lingering notes of hazelnut. Strong body, velvety mouthfeel, weak carbonation. A very bitter impy, rather hard to drink, but so delicious!

On tap at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 2nd August 2014. Virtually black with pale brown diminishing foam to a ring, and scattered lacing streaks. Rich roasty and smoky aroma with notes of Christmas pudding and logfire smoke. Exquisite smoky malty blend in-mouth with woodsmoke, spices, rich Christmas pudding and coalfire. Finish is intensely roasty with continued smokiness, sweet winter berries, delicate savoury notes and citric tang. A true orgasm of flavour. Solid body and smooth yet engaging texture. Did not expect to award this mark- well deserved!

July 21, 2014. 500mL bottle from LCBO. Roasted coffee, chocolate, hint of cherry in the nose. Dark brown head that lingered. Black in colour. BItter coffee flavour with bitter dark chocolate. Touch too bitter for my palate.

Desverger (2094) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
Tap@Cafe Langebro, CPH - pours black with a firm persistent tan head. Big roasted malty aroma and taste, some chocolate, notes of peat, smoky burnt malts, some dark dried fruits, there is some hoppy nuances in this as well on the palate, pretty complex overall, very satisfying and enjoyable. Tasty stuff!

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 50cl bottle from a stash in Scandinavia. + *playing ’Live in Boston’ version of Peter Greens ’Black Magic Woman’ to get into the drift.. "She already wants me to love her"... alright... so let’s start pouring this baby.. Dark with a stunning foamhead that almost hits the roof. Beautiful! Great consistency in the light brown foam. Looks very promising! Aroma : malt, dark roast, licorice, dark choc, but still medium.... Taste : a full sweet smokey malt taste (lovely!!!) with a boozey whiskey aftertaste that sticks around. A creamy mouthfeel it is. Not too malty, not too bitter or peppery, nor over-sweet.. Enjoy this with any magical woman. She will adore the experience and love you. If not, it is what it is; the power is in you anyways (meditate!).Yum! A more easy to digest version of Hornbeers ’The Fundamental Blackhorn’
