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 pitch black with a toffee colored head that lingers for a while. Nose is boozy, with rum notes and a considerable amount of roasted malt. Flavor-wise there is a good malt backbone shining with a decent amount of sweetness covered by roasted malt that comes out ashy at times (which I despise usually, but this time I’m able to get over it). Alcohol is well hidden and the syrupy mouthfeel from the restrained carbonation makes the experience really enjoyable only in small quantities.

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 (1278) - 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 (188) - 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.

Fat. Härlig doft av rök o rom o choklad samt kryddor. Härlig munkänsla krämig o god. Fin avslutningssmak som ligger länge i munnen. Finfin stout som kommer att drickas igen

Sublirony (41) - SINGAPORE - MAY 22, 2015
On tap at Bishop's Arms, Lund. Absolutely delicious. Pours a huge head, pitch black with a red tinge. A bit shy on the nose; milky, a bit sour, and whiffs of dried fruit. Doesn't really prepare one for the massive palate, heavy and unctuous but alive in the mouth. Some coffee, chocolate, and yes rum, ending really dry with the mouthfeel lingering and lingering. Good stuff to be sipped slowly.  ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PabloZab (636) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Butelka 0.5l (08.03.2025). Piwo czarne z brazowa piana ladnie krazkujaca. Aromat czekoladowy na pierwszym planie, w tle slod palony, przyjemna kompozycja. W smaku adekwatnie z aromatem z bardzo minimalnym kwaskiem. Piwo bardzo delikatne i gladkie, lekko oleiste, tresciwe ze slodkim posmakiem i lekka nuta alkoholu przyjemnie rozgrzewajaca. Tresciwe ale pijalne, poezja jednym slowem.
