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.

ovviamente scurissima con schiuma marrone a grana finissima..persistente ma non molto spessa..aroma iperbilanciato,con caffè,fruttato e anche luppolo (prima volta che riesco a sentirlo in una imperial stout,probabilmente in dry hopping)..gusto dove predomina l’amaro in favore del dolce(sia da malto tostato che da luppolo)..apparte qualche sentore legnoso nel gusto,che la rende ancora più amara,il rum non si distingue nettamente..consistenza viscosa e oleosa e corpo medio..carbonazione media..fantastica,ma non eccellente!

Lele (199) - Padova, ITALY - FEB 23, 2015
Imperial scout dall’amaro potente, oserei dire preponderante, tanto da coprire, a mio avviso, anche altri sapori. Il rum, a differenza di quanto dice il nome, non l’ho sentito. Ho avvertito invece un deciso caffè, interessante certo ,ma che tende a monopolizzare tutta la bevuta. Sicuramente sopravvalutata.

50 cl. bottle at home shared with girlfriend to accompany a Beeramisu (!) where the ladyfingers were soaked in this brew instead of a liquor. And it worked! Great dessert and this extremely rich brew once again showed its powers. Dark, intense, with notes of smoke, coffee, oak are dominant though in this particular batch, the rum was not too prevalent. Not very fizzy, but then the bottle had been opened for a while when we enjoyed it. As the bottle had a 2022 last sell by date, it was a pretty young example and they do get better with age. Won awards when it was introduced in 2008 and it still holds up. If you are a Porter/Stout enthusiast, you must try this mamouth!
