COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Nu synes vi, at tiden er inde til denne øl. Her er tale om en kraftig stout på 11% med coffeemalt, choclatemalt, black malt og honning. Vi har humlet til 120 IBU, vi har tørhumlet og lagret den med egetræ og valnød. Nu synes vi, at den har lagret tilstrækkeligt, så nu skal den på flasker. Hvad smager den af? Dem der har smagt den, siger kaffe, lakrids, honning, eg og valnød. Men døm selv.
Brygget med kaffe malt, chocolate malt, black malt og honning, tørhumlet og lagret med egetræ og valnød.

esox (1059) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2011
Pitch black, frothy and creamy head. Smoky malt nose, licorice, floral honey, fruit nectars and light peppery notes. Sweet, oily and heavy maltiness, loads of bready malts and dark syrup, a hint of charcoal, medicinal/ herbal/resiny hops and a touch of honey and dried fruits. Honeyish sweetness fits in perfectly. Finishes dark chocolatey with fruit nectars, a hint of vanilla and nuts. Full bodied and oily texture is like velvet. Lovely, delightful stout. Propably the best beer with honey in it that I’ ve had. If you have the sweet tooth, this is a beer to try!

Mad_Ferret (648) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. Oily pitch black with a big dense mocca brown head. Aroma is a bit spiky and vinous with licorice, dark fruit, coffee, nuts, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is burnt, sweet and rich with a salty ending. Espresso, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruit, nuts, burnt wet wood and a pinch of vanilla. A slight alcohol heat, but otherwise very well hidden. Body is pretty good but the mouthfeel is still a bit light, and the carbonation is soft and a bit mushy in the beginning. A bit more vinous than I usually like my IS but still very tasty. I guess i just like Hornbeers touch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SirLimpsalot (2134) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2011
Inte så stor, men lite spritig doft. Smaken är förtreffelig med en tjock vätska med tydliga, stora kaffetoner. Lite lakrits i eftersmaken som gör den söt och lång, Mums!

Bottle. Black with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice and some notes of nuts and sugar. Taste of coffee, licorice, soy sauce and roasted malt. Nice full body on this one, a solid beer from Hornbeer.

Marsiblursi (3002) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2011
(Bottle) Pours super black with a small, dark brown head. The aroma holds roast up front with notes of dark chocolate/cocoa, asphalt, liquorice/sal ammoniac, brown sugar, light espresso, honey, light smoke/sigarette ash and a dash of molasses. Also clear citric hop tones. Undertones of dark berries, meat, vanilla and wood. The nose is enjoyable but it doesn’t bring anything new to the table. The flavor is medium sweet, near medium bitter, light salty and light acidic. Tones of chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, smoked meat, asphalt, citric hops, honey, light fruits, black currant and brown sugar. Nice rostiness. The mouthfeel is round, soft and smooth with a light carbonation. Asphalt-like roast, liquorice and citrus lingers. Medium to full bodied. Good, but nothing new. Rally Danish in style.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pitch black color with medium sized beige head. Aroma has a bit more peat and roasted malts than the bottle version. Same thing on the flavor. Very smooth and creamy.
50 cl bottle.
Pours pitch black with medium beige head. Aroma is strong with roasted malts, licorice, peat, caramel and notes of toffee. Some coffee and chocolate at the end. Flavour is roasted malts, peat, coffee, licorice, some caramel and a bit of ash. Very smooth and full-bodied. Could have a bit stronger bakckbone. Complex and exciting.

500 ml bottle. BBE 30.01.2020.
Pours a pitch black colour with a thick brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, licorice and some burnt bread. Flavour of roasted malts, chestnuts, dark coffee, licorice, syrup and again burnt bread. Full bodied with a finish of roasted malts, strong dark chocolate and some mild sweet fruity notes. Alcohol is well hidden. A bit too thin mouthfeel. Nice one though.
