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.

Pours clear, black, nice head. Aroma is good chocolate and a little bit alcohol. Better chocolate in taste, good goffee too, which lasts long in aftertaste. For me a little bit to high carbonated.

adasko (1782) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 15, 2015
It’s a great imperial stout, but it’s not perfect in any aspect. Really nice roasty, toasty, malty, chocolate and coffee aroma, full of rum notes as well, but it’s not punching you right in the nose as I was hoping it will. The same is with mouth feel - rich and almost full, but it’s not pours around your mouth with this huge density and thickness. Taste is great though. So rich, so multidimensional.

Brownish black (as very strong coffe with cocoa), 1 finger of brown head. Aroma: dark chocolate, cocoa. Hint of coffe and dark fruit. Some alhocol. Taste: again, mainly cocoa and dark chocolate with some porto/sherry notes. Palate: full body, low carbonation. Overall: dont get that rum too much. In fact, it taste same way as I remember Vladimir P. from this brewery. Average RIS.

ruigo (2142) - PORTUGAL - OCT 13, 2015
On tap. Deep black colour with a generous tan head. Good retention. Dark chocolate, light sour, coffee, caramel, light rum, liquorice and wood in the aroma. Soft to average carbonation and full creamy bodied. Taste is quite balanced with the sweet notes being softened by the roasted coffee and black chocolate notes. A bit of rum notes coming in the aftertaste that could be more soften. Overall, a very good beer.

PapaVillum (841) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2015
Sort "olie" aka Imperial Stout med et par mm moccafarvet/brunligt skum. Aromaen er domineret af ristet malt, rom-noter, vanille og kaffe. Virkelig solid smag med en slutning af hårdt ristet malt. Indledes i dejlig balance mellem mindre syrlighed, let sødme og solid bitterhed. Iøjnefaldende er den bløde lækre mundfølelse. Nedjusteret karbonering på et behageligt niveau og stor fyldig krop. Eftersmagen er lang, lækker og bittersød. Et meget fint og forkælet bryg i Hornbeer's høje klasse. Kunne snildt have en anelse mere rom i smagen (romfadlagring?), men svært at være utilfreds. 33 cl på fad, nydt på TAP10 på Østerbro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DraftDodger (1007) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
Copenhagen 28/9 2015. 50 cl bottle. Gift from my in-laws. Drawing of pirate discovering a barrel of rum and looking appopriately happy about it on the label. Pours jet black with beige head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is dark roasted malts, bitter coffee and licorice. Soft carbonation and thick oily palate. Flavour is nicely balanced between sweetness with licorice, a little sweet rum maybe and bitter coffee. Aftertaste is mostly sweet and quite long. Finish is slightly burning from the not insignificant amount of alcohol. A nice after dinner stout.

TorbenJensen (1444) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
Thick as oil with dense dark brown foam. Lovely rich aroma of coffee, smoke and licorice spreading. The taste is very full-bodied coffee, English licorice and a nice warm feeling with clear touches of dark sweet rum. Palate is creamy and with lingering aftertaste, which include smoked malt.

jawlo (374) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Aromat: praliny czekoladowe, kawa, paloność, truskawki, delikatny rum. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana obfita, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, pieknie zdobi szkło. Smak: potężna słodycz w postaci deserowej czekolady, truskawek i rumu, kawa na dalszym planie, spora palona goryczka. Tekstura: piwo jest gęste i likierowe, nasycenie niskie. Ogólne wrażenie: pyszny RIS, świetny aromat i bardzo dobrze zbalansowany smak, alkohol prawie niewyczuwalny. Pomimo degustacyjnego charakteru piwo zostało wypite bardzo szybko.
