Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer thats very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

omhper (24790) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2010
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Very black, brown head. Concentrated hoppy licorice aroma. Dryish dense and full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Theres tobacco and salty licorice, reminiscent of a well aged good baltic porter, such as very old Limfjords Porter. Lovely concentrated flavours that never gets aggressive. Great stuff!

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2010
Small bottle from lbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is as black as it gets with a thick very brown head that tends to fade but gets more and more creamy to the point when it settles an inch high. The nose is roasted with notes of burned malts, hazel nuts and a potpouri of bitter aromas. There are some notes of lacorice and leather and a hint of vanilla and wood. The mouthfeel is huge with a creamy palate. The taste starts of with quite some bitterness that tends to change caracter as the taste developes on its journey theough your mouth and down your throat. A mild bourning feeling on the lipps from the alcohol. There are some roasted coffee, english lacorice and some burned pieces of wood and finally a touch of alcohol. Its a good imperial stout with a great masculin attitude.

Defreni (3142) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2010
Flaske: Kulsort l med et meget lille skumhoved. Heldigvis er der lidt karbonering. Smagen kunne vre helt i top, med en del rgmalt der kunne spille perfekt med brndtheden og chokoladen. Men desvrre fungerer det ikke optimalt. Smagen og duften er en lille smule off. Desvrre.

bierkoning (13138) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2010
Tap @ De Molen. Almost black and opague. Maple syrup, smoke, tobacco, honey, licorice and coffee in the complex aroma. Sweet flavor with honeyish notes, ash and maple syrup. Lots of dried fruit. Licorice and smoky notes. Burning alcohol. Long aftertaste with grapes and smoky and roasty notes. Complex, more than excellent beer.
