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.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
Frothy brown head atop an opaque black body with white sediment chunks in the bottom of the glass. Nose is surprisingly light almost ESB. The flavour is highly robust, ash, coal and bitter hops. Lasting bitterness through the finish. A bit of a letdown.

PapaVillum (468) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2014
40 cl på fad, 10,0 % ABV, nydt på Ørsted Ølbar, 16. februar 2014. Helt smuk sort "olie" med zero-til-nul skumtop, kun liggende i kransen af glasset. Aromaen er espresso/kaffe og egentlig dét. Men stadig god. Smagen er bitter og bitter/sød. Øllet virker stadig friskt, særligt på fad. Skyldes det temperaturen? Fantastisk komplet øl som vidner om Hornbeers høje bundniveau. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1838) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours black with full dark tan head. Beautiful lacing. Aromas of dark milk chocolate, coffee and cream, and heavily roasted malts. Rich flavors of dark cocoa powder, dried black coffee, ash, vanilla, and heavily roasted malts. Slightly oily. Warm finish but 11% is pretty well hidden. Excellent.

BeerViking (2571) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
An old 10% bottle from 2012 or so, black with a tan crema, nose is wooden barrels, alcohol and Bovril, rich and syrupy, with burnt treacle, liquorice, and bitter espresso, then burnt-bitterness and soy sauce umami in the finish.

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - JAN 18, 2014
Quentessenza delle stout cremose. Gusto esplosivo e complesso, con prevalenza di note di cioccolato al latte, morbide e avvolgenti. Si percepisce subito il corpo denso, anche se il grado alcolico è magistralmente velato da una coltre cioccolatosa e impenetrabile.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is roast, chocolate, malts. The look is brown to black in color with a tan head. The smell is alcohol, ok, roast, and malts. Cloudy.

IPAgutten79 (545) - Skui, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2013
Kullsvart med lavt espressofarget skum. Aromaen bringer frem søt sjokolade, kaffe, honning(!) og også ristet malt. Mulig den søte aromaen kommer fra honningen, et nytt element for min del i en Imperial Stout. I smaken er det kaffe, selv om det hele domineres av sjokolade for meg. Honningen ligger her mer i bakgrunnen, men man kan fortsatt kjenne den. Også alkoholen er merkbar, uten å sette noen demper på smaken. Sjokomelkkonsistens, med andre ord rimelig tykt brygg. Meget bitter ettersmak i en ellers finfin og variert munnfølelelse.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2013
Black colour, tan head. Aroma of caramel, malts, coffee, cheese and alcohol. Roasted malts flavour, caramel, honey, some sweetness and milk chocolate. Finish ash, malts and chocolate milk. Nice.
(From 66cL bottle @ weekly tasting, Benzai’s place, Oirschot. Thanks for sharing, Rene!)

ChristianHR (186) - DENMARK - NOV 18, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2013 Aroma is sweet and earthy with hints of oak. The color is black with a nice creamy brown head. Tastes very strong of coffee, liquorice, burnt sugar, oak and a hint of caramel.
