UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Pours a deep brown black, with a thick, creamy heavily tinted head. Aroma is heavily malted, with a chocolate edge and notes of orange. Taste is that of a quality breakfast stout, with a pleasant upfront bitterness lent by the the cacao and cypress wood aging, which is in itself softened by softened by notes of tropical fruit. All in all a really enjoyable chocolate influenced milk stout with some nice subtleties provided by the the hop selection and the cypress wood. EDIT: Had another bottle, 26/06/2014. Just as good as the first, but even more enjoyable with a little more concentration on exactly what’s going on in this incredible concoction. Bumped up the score to 4.2. Sublime.

Bamsen78 (3313) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2014
Draught @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable rich tan head. Dark aroma of coffee, caramel malt, barrel, and roast. Sweet flavour of malt, caramel, chocolate and some fruit, with bitter and roasty notes. Lively carbonation, not disturbing the good, creamy mouthfeel. Roasty and rough aftertaste. A very good Foreign Stout!

Vestergaard (425) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours black with a huge, dense, nut brown head. Aroma is full of chocolate, wood, dry roast. Fairly bitter. Taste has the same brownie-like chocolate which is very dry and dark. Lots of wood here as well. A nice sweetness in the back. The body is rather nice, but it sure could use some more alcohol in my opinion. Medium carb. Nice and good looking, but seems a little expensive.

Klimaet (260) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours black with a medium brown mocca head. Aromas of slight smoke, slight rum, coconut, dark chocolate, burned coffee. Taste is slighty smokey and roasted with some coconut and has alot of fruity sweetness to it. Ends in a dry, smoked and woody taste with some of that before said sweetness to it. Some bitter cacao aswell.

Tap. Nearly black body with a small, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, wood and brown sugar. Sweet flavor with a bitter finish and alcohol too. Full to medium bodied, oily texture and average carb. An excellent stout.
