Danish: Vi har brygget p denne l i lang tid. Nu synes vi selv, at den er som vi nsker. En meget kraftig stout med brndte toner fra ristet bygmalt, rgmalt, kaffe, en smule krydderier og som prikken over iet: en sjat rom og herefter lagret p egetr. Denne l m gerne gemmes flere r i et mrkt skab eller en klder. Men den kan alts ogs drikkes nu. Kb en ekstra flaske og gem den til en srlig lejlighed om nogle r. Den vil udvikle sig som god vin bare blive bedre og bedre i mange r.
Drik den i vinglas til sde desserter, chokolade eller uden noget.

English: We have brewed on this beer on a long time and we finally think it is a should. A very majestic stout with a hint of roasted barley malt, smoke malt, coffee, some spices and to top it all a drop of rum. The beer has been seasoned on oak wood. This beer can stored many years in a dark closet or cellar, but is also ready to drink when it leaves our brewery. Buy an extra bottle and stash it for a special occasion in some years. It will develop like a god wine- only get better and better by the years.

Lovely heavy malt brew with tons of big coffee and roast notes. The pour is really dark and viscous with a mild creamy tan head atop. Nose of pure rum or cane liquor with big roasted malts. Sweet and heavy taste with big mouth feel and noted rummy note. Exceptional beer overall.

Initially a good taste with clearly discernible taste of rum, coffee and liquorice but also an intrusive alcohol flavor that makes the overall impression becomes a carbonated watery Jgermeister.

Aromen var mrkligt frsiktig och det gjorde nog mig lite besviken. Smaken var juste med mycket rostade toner och inslag av torkad frukt och stma. Kroppen var stabil och jag upplevde den som balanserad.

Enjoyed this one a lot. A very dark appearance with a rich taste. Felt hints of coffee with a dark roast. My friend described the taste as "an ashtray" another as a "rich cigarette". All in all, a very good beer that I recommend to everyone.

A lot of flavours. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, rum and roast. The carbonation seems now to be fixed from earlier bottles. Great balance.

Helst svart l med ett ltt brunt skum.En l som r komplex men nd balanserad i bde doft och smak. Doftar av kaffe, choklad, kakao och rom. Samma terkommer i smaken med ltta toner av vanilj. Stor kropp och en grddig munknsla.

ar: Oh, Hornbeer, how you can produce a beer that just smells great! Thick layers of coffee, ash, chocolate, roastiness and alcohol that are rich as can be, yet velvety smooth, vanilla, some herbs and light notes of licorice, undefined earthy fruitiness and light, light soy sauce. Absence of a 10 is because I cant detect any rum. Ap: Black as a scandinavian winters night, small brown head that dissipates and creates a ring. F: licorice, quite salty, coffee, ash, chocolatey, some vanilla and rum in the finish, paired with soy sauce and a warming note, bitterness is light to medium for the style. P: full bodied and soft carbonation. T: If the rum would have been more noticable this would have been a slam dunk, now you have to look for it. Still this is impressive and together with Mikkeller Hornbeer compose the vanguard of Danish quality brewing!

Bottle from local Vinmonopol. Best before 2022. I might get more bottles to age! Anyway, it pours a quite pitch black brew, with a small "cappucino coloured" head. The aroma is dark and fruity. Some chocolate, coffee and caramel. Big body, low carbonation. Lots of stuff going on in the flavor here! Lets try to describe it: first, I get licorice, then toasted bread, then coffee, then chocolate, and theres a general note of (burned) wood all around, with hints of smoke. The 11 % abv is noticable. Some artificial pear flavor in the beginning. Hints of leather. Very well balanced. Everything is nicely integrated. I dont get much rum/spices. Overall its pretty darn delicious!

Mrkligt, fsta gngen jag avsmakade denna var den en trevlig verraskning, andra gngen blev det en liten besvikelse. Kan detta beror p att jag drack en ngra r lagrad den frsta gngen?
