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.

Freaky_tiki (721) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Settles into the glass a thick, oily black with a slight cap of dark cherry foam that settles to a subtle ring. First thing you notice is how dry this imperial stout is. Many interpretations of the style devolve into a sticky sweetness, while this one comes off like a pure shot of espresso -- not too bitter, like in the hands of an artisan barista. It’s not clear from the babbling copy on the label if real coffee is involved. Alcohol at 10% is in the house but almost in the shadows. Not as muscular or complex as some of my favourite imperial stouts but quite enjoyable to drink on a Friday evening in the icy dead of winter. Recommended.

Beergaard (183) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2015
Pitchblack beer with a big beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffe, some floral hop notes, some sweet notes of prunes and vanilla and roasted malt - no real alcohol pressence. The taste is dominated by roasted malt, loads of bitter coffe and hops, dried fruit. Alcohol is well-hidden tastewise as well. Very nice beer and one of the absolute top contenders from Hornbeer.

Fluxing (507) - POLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Warka do 02.01.2024. Kolor nieprzejrzyscie czarny. Piana obfita, brunatna, powoli opada do cienkiej warstwy, prawie nie oblepia szkla. W aromacie wanilia, kawa, lukrecja, orzechy, czerwone owoce, sliwki, rodzynki, suszone morele, drewno, lekki alkohol. W odczuciu nisko wysycone, pelne, gladkie, zawiesiste, maczyte. W smaku podobne jak w aromacie, mocno palone i czekoladowe, lekko slodkawe, miodowe, smak moglby byc bogatszy, ale nie jest zle. Goryczka srednia, ziolowa, ziemista, lodygowa, delikatnie zywiczna i cytrusowo-kwaskowa, lekko alkoholowa.

magicmn (120) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 3, 2015
Some coffee and vanilla with grassy hop in aroma. Looking really dark with deep brown foam. Medium body what isnt good for an imperial stout, bitternes dominate in this beer - both hoppy grassy one with light citruses and some roasty with espresso notes. Overall american styly imperial stout. Just above average.

Bottle from LCBO. Aroma of dark fruit and coffee. Dark fruit (figs, cherry), roasty and chocolate notes, with a dry bitter finish. Gets smoky as time goes on. Very nice.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours black with a small-moderate light brown head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge coffee and roasted malts, along with smoke, subtle chocolate and a hint of hops. Woody notes come through as well, but these are very subtle. The flavour is fairly well balanced up front between moderate coffee bitterness and a slightly more subtle chocolate malty sweetness. As it lingers on the palate, the coffee bitterness takes over, along with smoky roasted malts and bitter hops. Liquorice is present, though mild. The finish is long and roasty, with a nice coffee-hop bitterness that lingers. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very respectable imperial stout with a huge coffee character despite having no actual coffee to my knowledge. Very well done. 2014-12-31

jksipa (483) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Dark dark brown with a small dark beige head with minimal lace. Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, licorice, berries, dark fruit and some wood all make an appearance in varying degrees. Medium light sweet chocolate leads to a medium heavy well integrated bitterness that manages to control the high alcohol content. Medium creamy mouth with soft carbonation/ Smooth and disturbingly easy to drink.
