COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En mørk, næsten sort stout med et flot cremefarvet skum. En stout med stor fylde, nogen sødme og en lang raffineret smag af kaffe, lakrids og tørrede frugter. Den er brygget på bygmalt, rugmalt og Crystal malt.

English: A dark, almost black stout with a beautiful cream coloured head. A rich stout with some sweetness and a long lasting refined flavour of coffee, licorice and dried fruits. Brewed with barley, rye and Crystal malt.

Idiosynkrasie (4008) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear darkest brown to black colour with small to average, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty with hints of treacle, minimally roasty, minimally metallic, almost with a soapy touch in the finish. Just as many other beers from Midtfyns, nothing wrong with this - rich, flavourful, you feel the quality of the ingredients, the caring handling associated with handcrafted beer - nevertheless the taste doesn’t kill me.

SlovakSniper (3269) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Une bouteille de 50 cl meilleure avant le 22 mai 2014. Un liquide profondément brun avec sa coupole mousseuse qui s’estompe assez rapidement. Le nez se couvre de caramel et de chocolat vanillé lorsque des pointes surettes apparaissent derrière une réglisse très odorante. Les saveurs ne sont pas en reste de ces touches grimaçantes et s’en accommodent dans la mesure où elles sont rattrapées par une séquence rôtie bien arrondie par le chocolat et cette toujours flagrante réglisse noire. La bouche est construite par des professionnels. Le corps est de moyenne densité tandis que des bulles molles rendent l’appareil davantage crémeux. La finale, qui est modérément amère par les grains rôtis, demeure l’apanage de la réglisse qui me semble être éprise subitement de quelques secousses fruitées.

Black pour with a medium tan head. Interesting aroma of roasted malt, coacoa and fruits. Very good flavor of roasted malt that feels a bit like coffee and fruits. There’s not much of a bitterness in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. This is a very well-made stout.

pushkinwow (2061) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
500ml bottle. Black with a brown head. Lots of roasted malt, anise, some coffee, semi-artificial vanilla, sweet chocolate. Mild carbonation, moderate body, sweet and roasted with some bitterness and dryness at the finish.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
My Bottom Line:
This vanilla-laden Sweet Stout possesses some roasted coffee bean angles to add depth to a prevalent candied fruitiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam dwindles to a veil over the darkest brown.
-Malts also offer toasted edges.
-The prevalent fruitiness is also redolent of licorice.
-Sweet coffee reaches the finish, accompanied by light roasty bitterness.
-The creamy mouthfeel, its smooth richness and soft carbonation accentuate this Stout’s sweet heart.
-Those who like Cigar City’s propensity for dessert flavors would like this a lot.

Bottle.

BottleHound (154) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 29, 2012
500ml bottle. Black color with light brown head. Aroma of chocklate and licorice. Flavor is moderate sweet choclate and coffee. Carbonation is medium, makes it more easy-drinking than other stouts. Long aftertaste. Great with a chocklate cake.

mzaar (1683) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Flaska 50 cl. Ett generöst capuccinovitt skum lägger sig ovanpå den nästan svarta kroppen. Doftar stort av choklad, apelsinskal och faktiskt lite julkryddor. Sötma i såväl aromen som smaken, där det i det sistnämnda fallet chokladen framträder mest, men också samsas med kaffe och vanilj. En mycket fin dansk!

AirForceHops (3393) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bought this bottle in July 2011 @ Nikki’s Liquors in Providence, RI, forgotten about it until today going over my aged bottles in my basement. Tan head, some mild lace in a snifter. Medium to a nearly full body. The aroma is sweet and very roasted with notes of alcohol, wood, and dark chocolate. Flavor mirrors the nose with some liquor flavors. Some coffee bitterness and a dry finish. Overall, well-made stout. And nearly as good as the Imperial version from this brewery.
