COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi har brygget på denne øl i lang tid. Nu synes vi selv, at den er som vi ønsker. En meget kraftig stout med brændte toner fra ristet bygmalt, røgmalt, kaffe, en smule krydderier og som prikken over i’et: en sjat rom og herefter lagret på egetræ. Denne øl må gerne gemmes flere år i et mørkt skab eller en kælder. Men den kan altså også drikkes nu. Køb en ekstra flaske og gem den til en særlig lejlighed om nogle år. Den vil udvikle sig som god vin – bare blive bedre og bedre i mange år.
Drik den i vinglas til søde desserter, chokolade eller uden noget.

English: We have brewed on this beer on a long time and we finally think it is a should. A very majestic stout with a hint of roasted barley malt, smoke malt, coffee, some spices and to top it all a drop of rum. The beer has been seasoned on oak wood. This beer can stored many years in a dark closet or cellar, but is also ready to drink when it leaves our brewery. Buy an extra bottle and stash it for a special occasion in some years. It will develop like a god wine- only get better and better by the years.

Koelschtrinker (11527) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Nach einem kurzen malzigen Antrunk folgt eine helle Gewürznote, herb, leicht nach Kräutern. Nun ist der Hopfen hintergründig bemerkbar, überdeckt von einem cremig malzigen aber fast hell wirkenden Malzton. Im Abgang weiter malzbetont, auch die Kräuternote ist hier noh vorhanden. Kaum süß, etwas holzig, kafeeartig röstig. Test vom 27.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,12,-,12 - 11,84

tkrjukoff (4128) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2011
@CBF. Pours black with a brown head leaving some lace. Aroma is very malt, coffee, rummmy, a bit acidy and caramel. Flavor much like the aroma with nice sweetness and warming alcohol. Finishes sweet and fruity. Very nice.

Sigmund (5447) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2011
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Rerate, 500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar. ABV is 11%. Pitch black colour, large brown head. Aroma and flavour mainly as in first sample, but the carbonation helps. The roasty notes come through more distinctly. I’m upping it a few points. Original rating: Cask at Copenhagen Beer Festival, gravity dispense. Black colour, no head nor carbonation. Strong aroma of rum and oak / vanilla. The flavour is quite oaky, again with strong notes of rum and vanilla. Quite enjoyable, and would no doubt be better with a little carbonation.

IluvatarMilan (279) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours a thick black body with medium tan head. Intense aroma, tar, caramel, licorice. Fat body with taste of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, wood, light alcohol hue. Some great and overpowering aromas, but perhaps not the most balanced.

Countbeer (4908) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle: Nice small vast brown foamy head on top of a black beer. Smell liquorice, roasted malts, tar and chocolate. Taste is a good mix of smoked wood, burnt malt, spices, pepper, liquorice, coffee, caramel, bitter, dark fruits, earth, light rum, coal and roasted barleys. Good full bitter coffee, wood, liquorice aftertaste. Low carbo, soft light creamy mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Another good BA imp!

Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, hard roasted malt, coffee and a little vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted bitter finish with a little alcohol. Soft. 141109

brnandersen (2239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2011
0,5 l. bottle from SPAR supermarket in the village Sæby nearby the brewery. Black colour with brown hues, tan head that slowly disappers. The aroma is dominated by the malts, I get caramel, coffee and roasted. There is also some weak notes of licorice and rum. Medium sweetness, lots of candy like brown sugar, a "sweet kind" of rum and herbs. Only medium body which is so-so for this style. Oily feel and soft carbonation. Rather shortlived finish for the style. The high alcohol at 11% is not present at all in this ½ litre bottle, so beware! I have mixed opinions about this beer: Its a like a liquid dessert with coffee, but without the full body and long finish for its style. A descent, not a excellent rating.
