COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knud den Store er den største og mægstigste viking i dansk historie. Han bankede englænderne og gav danskerne hår på brystet. Derfor er det oplagt at denne Imperial Stout hædrer hans navn. Knud den Store er sprængfyldt med kilovis af lækre karamelmalte og hårdt ristede malte.

StoutHead (606) - - DEC 15, 2013
On tap (5-6 times). Pours black with a small tan head. Nice taste of roasted malt and coffee and hints of licorice. Some hops and smoke in there too. Has a very pleasant and long-lasting dry aftertaste. Overall a very good stout that hardly has any sweetness in it. But absolutely very good. Looking forward to trying the bottle in my fridge to see if it's the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapez (1513) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2014
Pours a near black with brown edges. Medium tall rusty brown head, quickly fading to a ring of bubbles. Nose is fruity for a starter, then a good dose of well roasted dark malts, bitter coffee, and a fine licorice scent. Mid-bodied. Oily mouthfeel. Equallly fruity and roasty flavor. Dark tinned fruits and well roasted, almost tarry dark malts. Bold bitterness, mostely from the malts. Finishes dry and bitter. [0,33 l bottle from Eriksen Vinhandel, Holbæk]

jesperhammer (2841) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2014
01-JUL-2014, draft @Taphouse. Black, lasting Brown head. Aroma is roast, hard roasted with coffee. Taste is very roasted with coffee, chocolate. Hoppy. Very bitter from hops and roast. Slight astringency. Full body, medium carbonation. Very hoppy aftertaste - green - clearly dry-hopped. Long, long mostly hoppy aftertaste - at least after a few sips. Some sweetness. Really delicious.

Beer4000 (4405) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2014
330 ml bottle. Black body with a tan head. Aroma has light roasted dark malt, coffee and some liquorice. Flavor is sweet, mild roasted dark malt, chocolate, coffee hint of liquorice and medium bitterness. OK balanced body and decent aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Nothing really extraordinary going on here, but a well-made solid imp. stout. Quite nice sipper or even as a companion to my pizza tonight.

Tryfuss (2) - DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014 does not count
Fra Fad på Ølfestivalen 2014 Sort med flot cremefarvet skum, duft af ristet malt og caffee, meget kompleks smag, noter af kaffe, lakrids karamel - en fjern fornemmelse af blomme og lidt alkohol. lækker humle finish. En øl der sikkert vinder ved langtids lagring.
