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.

A lot of flavours. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, rum and roast. The carbonation seems now to be fixed from earlier bottles. Great balance.

Vestergaard (316) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours thick black with a big, frothy, brown head. Aroma has chocolate, some smoke, bitter wooden notes, a big roast, some dark, dried fruits and licorice. The taste do have a noticeable rum flavor, but you can tell that it’s added rum, since the barrel’s wooden, dry flavor doesn’t blend very well. I think it might be the alcohol that doesn’t have that same round taste that you are used to. Still some pretty nice chocolate, roasty and licorice notes. A fine stout, but i’m not thrilled with the rum-addition. medium-low carbonation

Black with rich brown cap. Stoury taste with strong roasted caramel notes, a bit smoked. Remaining bitterness with suddenly appearing rum notes.

Lukasmh (101) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Tap. Pours pitch black, fine thick mocca head. Aroma is roasty, burnt, coffee, brown suger, slight smoke. Taste is medium sweet, toasty and the rum is certainly there, vanilla too. Finish is warming alcohol and lean dry oak along with good portion of bitterness and slight roast. A bit too boozy.

fiver29 (1035) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks! Pours oily dark black into the glass with a one finger tan head. Aroma is a complex array of dark malts, espresso, booze, and sherry like oxidation. Medium heavy mouthfeel. Flavors are outstanding. The dark roast mingles with the rum notes and sherry notes and tickles my taste buds. Just a fantastic brew.

Very dark brown with a medium brown head. Malty and roasted tones. Malt, coffee, chocolate and wood. Full body with a nice bitter sweet, fruity finish.

EvilCat (80) - FRANCE - AUG 11, 2014
Bouteille. Robe noire encre de Chine , écume beige dense. Nez de crème brûlée, de malt grillé , de cacao et de bois mouillé. La bouche se révèle ronde et crémeuse sur le grain de café , la fève de cacao et le caramel. Finale amère, terreuse et végétale d'écorce de chêne et de réglisse adoucie par une note de sucre de canne au parfum léger de rhum. Des notes vanillées et fumées complètent cette très agréable impérial stout flibustière. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McTapps (3948) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Bamsen78 - thank you a lot, Marcin! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of rum, raisins and dark roasted coffee beans. Taste of light malt, rum, raisins, plums, roast, dark coffee, chocolate and exotic flavours. Smooth to drink - loved it.

MichaelAwesome (3949) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
Mit McTapps geteilt. Dickes und fruchtiges, dabei dunkles Piwo mit knackigem Alkohol und einigen Rosinen im Hintergrund. Schwer und dick, dabei jedoch bewundernswert befriedigigend. Nicht meine Lieblingssorte, aber ein ordentlicher Bumms an Fruchtigkeit, Kaffee und Alkohol.
