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.

rekvium (422) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2015
From tap. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, melasse, raisins, soy sauce, light coffee and licorice. Taste is very heavy on the roasted malts, licorice, soy sauce, no rum character at all. Thin body - especially for an 11% beer. Not my kind of imp. stout.

Douberd (4818) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
(Hornbeer Caribbean Rumstout) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 11% Pitch black colour on the body, one full finger of dark brown head on top,thick and a bit creamy too, with great retention. Aroma has hints of smoke, roasted malts, vanilla, light alcohol, some chocolate. Taste also of roasted malts, smoke, meat, light rum but it’s there, alcohol notes every now and then, chocolate, vanilla, some fruity touches too. Thcik body, carbonation just right. Sticky palate. Amazing.

popiela (548) - Poznañ, POLAND - NOV 22, 2015
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 (1875) - 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.

cokolwiek11 (367) - POLAND - OCT 23, 2015
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.
