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.

Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2012
Drunk to celebrate my rating number 22,800. Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge very dark brown head. The aroma has notes of rhum, chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, and wood. The flavor very sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, burnt wood, caramel, rhum, and some chocolate, leading to a dry woody, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

Marheb (3536) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Obtenu de SlovakSniper dans un échange: Nez boisé, légèrement fumé composé de rhum épicé. En bouche c’est étonnement timide au niveau des saveurs avec des pointes fruités très discrètes qui accompagnent doucement le café, chocolat, mélasse. La finale d’épices du rhum brun sauve un peu la face. Agréable mais saveurs hésitantes.

50 cl. bottle shared @ friend’s house – purchased at Beer Planet – split & poured into rum glasses – A: solid black with a brown head – S: very sweet, syrup-like, cough syrup mixed with dark caramel malts, molasses, touch of chocolate – T: slightly roasted dark malts but never the less still very sweet, molasses, brown sugar a go-go, cough syrup, wood, touch bitterness in the aftertaste & most of all lots of sweet rum in here, rather tangible in the alcohol department but the sweet, sticky molasses rum nature of this is quite lovely - B: somewhat sticky & oily, more carbonated than you would expect it to be, definitely lively carbonation, nice sweet one

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This engaging Imperial Stout develops wooden notes alongside roasted cereals and molasses in a lean, healthy mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of coffee-colored foam tops the impenetrable darkness.
-This is drier than expected, with plenty of malt flavors (not just residual sugars).
-The flavor display is quite simple (and elegant) for a brew which lists so many ingredients. Coffee, spices, rum and smoked malt were all used parsimoniously, it seems. Good on them.
-Blackberry fruitiness appears in the finish.
-Alcohol is expertly hidden.
-Carbonation is lively enough to make the sugars feel light, even if there are a few viscous pockets here and there.

Eructoblaster (3478) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque black body with low carbonation and a good brown foamy/creamy head. Nice, complex malty/hoppy aroma with roasty and chocolate hints. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Taste carries rhum and woody notes. Ends with a warming bitter/roasty finish. Good stuff.

Bottle, merci Pat! Good looking black pour with nice brown head. Aroma is very fruity, lots of dried dark fruits, hints of chocolate and molasses. Taste is light, fruity, not very sweet. Palate is quite light for what I was expecting, with a dry finish. Strange imperial stout, lacking the body I was looking for but still good.
