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.

Bottle from Canada, merci Mathieuc! Pours a chalky dark black, thick as oil with a meanness to it. To borrow a line from Todd, I would cross the street if I saw this beer walking towards me. Strong aromas of coal, smoke, roast and some black unknown component that makes its presence felt through its sheer will. This beer will dominate you if you let it. This beer would make a cigar city stout cry for its mommy, cradled in the fetal position waiting for Florida homers to rescue it with their overinflated ratings. In short, this beer pulls no punches. There is so much smokey roast in here it’s almost hard to believe. Where the hell are the high ratings for this beer? This beer makes baller stout look like a $1 bill. Jesus. If you don’t like this beer, then you don’t like beer. thick, black, dark, smoke, roast, hops, coffee, chocolate, cigarette butts. This is world class.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 A light brown (beige) head covers the pitch black liquid. Pours molasse-like (seems thick) and settles quite nicely. It is lacking a bit of presence in the aroma department but I can feel some roasted character and maybe a bit of sweetness in there. Taste is of roasted malt and malt sweetness. No hops aroma/flavor to speak of so it is not a modern american imp. stout in a way. Good thing it’s from Denmark... Alcohol is not noticed on the tongue or in the nose but it is definitely there! ;) 120 IBU? No way it is for real (or I’m broken)!

piscator34 (2181) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Jet black in colour with medium carbonation. Potent aromas of dark chocolate, pale malt, and light roast coffee. Acidic and a bith ashy in the mouth, backed by notes of chocolate and black licorice. Light bodied for the style. Smelled better than it tasted unfortunately.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for the share on this one. Pours a medium brown with a tan head. Nose is licorice, coffee, earth, some peat, and roast. Flavor is similar with licorice, coffee, roast, and earth. Medium in body and lingering earth, roast, and coffee in the finish.

Ibland så träffar man rätt, jag kan komma ihåg när jag stod i butiken och kunde känna att just den här ölen måste jag ha. Det är givetvis en fantastisk känsla man får när man ett halvår senare öppnar ölen och blir lyrisk. Aromen var gudomlig och mörk, smaken präglades av choklad, fruktighet och någon ton av syra. Och genom hela upplevelsen var ölen sammetslen och alldeles, alldeles,,, underbar.

Finwe (420) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Opus K, Lohja. Pours black with tan head. Immense aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and some warm alcohol. Dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, bitter hops and sweet sugar in the flavour. Extremely delicious.

My Bottom Line :
Chocolate and molasses are given depth by this silky Imperial Stout’s vinosity before roasted malts and hop resins build balancing bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A brown veil of foam garnishes the deep blackness, diminishing to a ring.
-The mouthfeel is rich, but never overbearing.
-This is not super complex, but it is never boring.
-Malt flavors are well defined, and yeast actually adds a nice fruity character.
