COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

Finished up a tasting recently with this brew. Ended up splitting the bottle three ways into snifters. The brew had a finger worth of dark coco colored head sitting on top of a black bodied brew. The head laced perfectly in the glass, it’s a beautiful stout. You get a great amount of coco nibs coming at you in the nose. I didn’t get much in the way of wood or barrel at all I even asked another Geek with me and he couldn’t pull any either I think the coco is just that strong. The flavor was perfect for a chocolate stout. This one is done right. The brew wasn’t sweet milk chocolaty but reminded me of a good piece of dark chocolate with a little pepper spice thrown in. It had a great mouthfeel to it thick and coating on the tongue. I enjoyed this brew and after a few sips I sparked a good cigar (JDN Antano dark Corojo) to go with it and this brew just worked perfectly with it. Serving type: bottle

RasmusOtt (2764) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle thanks to bursprak. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma is pretty earthy with notes of chocolate, slight smoke, old sweet Malts and butterscotch. Pretty obvious that this is past its prime. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, slight spice, some oak, earth and milky chocolate. Very old school and a bit past its prime, but this is still pretty solid.
