Prince of Denmark is a strong, dark beer of great complexity and depth. It is based on traditional recipes from the 18th Century but has also been described as an Imperial Stout Nouveau. Brown, amber and black malts are mixed with pale ale malts to give this beer its strong aroma and colouring.

A complex beer with aromas of leather, chocolate and liquorice, with a lingering taste.

Grumbo (2000) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Cask at the 2017 Chelmsford & Mid Essex Winter Beer Festival. Pours black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma of malt, light spice, chocolate, roasted notes, nice and rich. Light sweetness with medium to heavy bitterness. Full body and rich slick texture. Carbonation is soft. Finish is long, bitter, roasted. Very good. My beer of the festival.

thejackpacker (199) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle from brewery in Lewes. I am clearly outnumbered here but confirms my fear of imperial stouts. Initial enjoyment from the aroma and huge flavour profile gave way to feeling run over by tobacco and chocolate. Like scraping the barrel of a sticky, burnt tobacco barrel.

Zlotta (2588) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2017
0.275 l bottle from Marktkauf Nowak (Iserlohn), best before January 2018. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and a little fruity aroma of licorice, raisins, prunes, soy sauce, oak and some chocolate. Sweetish-malty, quite roasty, very umami taste of lots of soy sauce, licorice, oak, dark fruits, dark chocolate, some tar and coffee, followed by a long, rather roasty-bitter, dry and umami finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, almost flat. A bit unusual, but very nice and satisfying!

BeardedAvenger (488) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle at home. BB Oct 2014. Bought at Royal Oak, Borough a month or so ago - they had to fetch a dusty couple of pre-aged bottles from the cellar. Enjoyable stewed fruits, prunes and port aroma. Also got a smokiness when I stuck my nose in to the tulip for my first sip. A glossy black. The dark beige head soon faded to nothing. A rich sweet fruitless before a bitter kick that smoothes off into an almost charred liquorice finish. Light bodied. Oily. Long warming and astringent finish. I like.

Hoprider (524) - DENMARK - JAN 8, 2017
2010 vintage 8% abv. Gushed when opened. Smells infected and vinous and roasted at the same time. Big licorice and roast along with dates way in the background. The taste is pretty much as described above; big roast, vinous with some infection notes. Very flavourful. Body is overly carbonated at first but settles. Dry roast, licorice aftertaste. The rating is as I remember the beer without infection.
