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.

Flaske kjøpt på polet i vika, kølsvart farge med brunoransje tynt skum, En kraftig smak av mørk sjokolade, espresso, søt lakris,tre og honning , med en enda mer intens ettersmak av humle og eik. Overaskende mye bitterhet/humle for en imperial stout.

blankboy (6359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting frothy light-brown head. Almost oily looking. Aroma of equal parts roasted malt, chocolate and leafy hops first followed by honey, dark fruit and coffee. Flavour is nice and mostly follows the aroma but the hops are slightly more prominent. Long bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Really good stuff.

Bendrixian (1206) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
pitch black colour. huge coffee grinds and chocolate aroma, it gets more aggressive as it opens up. Jeesus mary and joeseph it just gets bigger and more toasty. Big enough on the palate and doesn’t let up. Just a pleasant brew to have over the course of an hour or two. Beauty.

Scopey (7849) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Keg thanks to Fergus at Bruce’s Bday tasting. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roast, coffee grounds, umami, salted liquorice, charred wood and ash. The taste is rich roast, bitter-sweet, some acidity, coffee, dark fruits, burnt toast, earth, ashy and dark fruits with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Hard astringent aspect puts me off a touch, but there is no denying this is a solid imperial stout.

Leighton (12580) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell during Bruce’s bday - big thanks to Fergus for the share. Pours black with a dense beige head. The aroma holds lots of charred bread, mild chocolate, some burnt cereal. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of sugary but bittersweet chocolate, toasted grains, scorched earth, baking cocoa, leathery berries. Full in body with average carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish with lots of bitter charred earth, coffee grounds, burnt grain husk. Punchy stuff. Just a touch overly bitter.

Keg at Bruce’s birthday drinks craft beer co. Opaque black colour pour with a lasting frothy tan head. Aroma I’d nice nutty dark choc clean chalky roast. Attractive beer. Flavour is composed of big harsh astringent roasted barley, milky lactose sugars, bit of mineral and seaweed. Palate is medium full, chalky spritzy carbonation. Long lingering harsh roast. Big and bold. Some plummy fruits.

The pour is an incredible dark black with a half inch tan head that dissipates quickly. The smell is phenominal, chocolate, coffee and malty. The taste of this beer was beyond my expectations (which were high). Heavy chocolate taste laced with coffee and a great aftertaste. One of the best imperial stouts i've ever tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
