4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Truly a remarkable beer. Nose gives apple, cinnamon spice, some cocoa. Taste follows suit, but has a really excellent meshing of the apple character with the spice notes and the chocolate sweetness isnít overwhelmingly rich to take those flavors to the background. Somehow manages to not taste boozy at all, and the apple flavor comes extremely naturally rather than tasting like flavored alcohol. I wouldnít say this is as good a pure stout as AB Hunahpu, probably because the base beer isnít in the same realm of awesomeness, but itís got a flavor profile that really differentiates itself. Extremely grateful to have had a nice large glass of this.

Bottle at Himmeriget with Bob. Black with a small dissapating head. Smells good. Cinnamon, chocolate, wet wood, light licoroce, apple cake. Flavour follows. Lots of things. Cinnamon, chili heat, chocolate, apple cake, coconut. Crazy and intense, yet not difficult to drink. Light acidity. Warming finish with chili and spices. Stands out.

Bottle shared@Himmeriget, Copenhagen - pours black with a tan head. Roasted malty with some bitter chocolate, some vanilla, caramel, toffee apple (which the accompanying cinnamon works excellently with) chilli heat comes in but nice balance with the inherent sweetness of the other flavours, nice brandy infused wooden nuances, great warming boozy contentment into the finish. Immense.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Himmeriget. Pours oily black with a frothy mocha head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty, fruity and tiny spicy with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, luxurious dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, cinnamon, smoked chilis, caramel coated apples, moist soil, minerals, leather and calvados. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty, fruity and slightly spicy. mouthfeel is soft, round, oily, tiny astringent, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter soft roasty caramel malts, balanced apple fruitiness which with the cinnamon makes for some great apple pie character and a light fruity habanero burn. Another amazing barrel treatment on an amazing base beer. The apple brandy of the barrel and the cinnamon in the beer marries perfectly making this a blend of Mexican chocolate cake and American apple pie. Multi-kulti perfection! Love this!

Bottle@Himmeriget N: damn! Bounty bar, boozy brownie batter. All kinds of chocolate and spicy vanilla oak. Legend! T: tastes even better... How is that possible. Sweet and spicy fudge, pepper heat and boozy heat. Candy goodness.. Naughty stuff this.. Aftertaste is hot and boozy for a bit but turns sweet and chocolaty and lingers forever. Body is full/creamy carbonation is soft. This is what you hope for - this is what you dream about.

So Iím a dane - you all know where I got this. If you need to ask, youíll never.
Split two ways, cause we donít do them dane-pours.
Pours pitch ní dirty oily black, with no head at all.
Atoma is jam packed with goodness. Apple ní cinnamon pie, chocolate fudge, brownie dough, plenty of wood and barrel character, bounty bar for days, slight spicy heat In the back. So damn well balanced. Oh my this is gewd. Taste is pretty darn complex, sweet up front, great amount of coffee bitterness from the middle, and the perfect amount of heat In the back. Another layer is the alcohol heat that is ther 4sho, but adds something to the pot. Semi full bodied, with as little carb as Can be, without being flat. Gewd gewd gewdie gewd.
