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.

BrianWillum (228) - København S., DENMARK - MAR 8, 2012
Rating from note. Bottle. Aroma of sweet caramel and roasty malt. Dark beer, but with no real head. Taste of sweet caramel and maybe rasins as well. Maybe a bit to sweet, but great balance between sweetness and bitterness.

j12601 (9049) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at James’ place. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige to tan head. Cocoa and rum on the nose, chocolate. A touch almost metallic, but not metal flavors, just an odd thinness to in the body. Softly sweet, more cocoa powder and chocolate on the finish. Easy drinking.

jtclockwork (12845) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle shared at my house. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of vanilla, fudge brownies, cocoa, roast chocolate and mild spices. Taste is more of a burnt black malt with some lactose sweetness. Medium body.

AndySnow (6216) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2012
Bortle @ Monk’s. Dark brown/black colour with some head. Burned chocolate alcohol aroma. At least like to think that there is some rum flavour among the stronger chocolate and alcohol ones.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
(Draught) Pours black. The aroma is deep with tones of dark chocolate roast, alcohol, raisins, rum and wood. Coffee lurking in the background. The flavour is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Big time chocolate malty with rum and wood to back it up. The mouthfeel is round and full. Lingering aftertaste. Medium to full bodied.

Ungstrup (32859) - 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 (4183) - 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.
