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!

[email protected] 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 Im a dane - you all know where I got this. If you need to ask, youll never. Split two ways, cause we dont do them dane-pours. Pours pitch n dirty oily black, with no head at all. Atoma is jam packed with goodness. Apple n 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.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ Himmeriget. Pours pitch black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is chillies, cinnamon, alcohol, vanilla, caramel, barrel, coconut, chocolate and light roasted. Quite aggressive aroma but in a good way. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, oilyish, soft carbonation. Finish is spicy, cinnamon and warming alcohol. Lovely!

Rating 1900. Bottle @ Himmeriget. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet caramel, cinnamon, wood, brown sugar, butterscotch,, fudge, vanilla. weak baked apples and some sweet barrel notes. Freaking awesome!! The taste is sweet and has more spice than the aroma. Also some wood, cinnamon, caramel, sweet barrel, fudge, chocolate, vanilla and you know. All the good stuff that can be pulled out of this beer with a delicious barrel. This is one of my favorites of the mexican cake variants.

Klimaet (2135) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle @ Himmeriget, Copenhagen. Pours pitch black with a small mocha head. Aromas of dark chocolate, oaky, woody notes, cinnamon, burned wood, fudgey, apple cake sweetness, light chili spice, vanilla. WOW. Taste is sweet apple brandy, chilies, dark chocolate, vanilla, fudgey, cinnamon, dry malty, almost cracker-like sweetness to it aswell. Once again, WOW. This beer is absolutely fantastic and flies right into my over all top 3, ever.

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks! Pours Hunahpus black with a small, fleeting, light brown head. The aromatic highlights are fudge, alcohol, cinnamon and chili pepper. Full-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. The flavor boasts heaps of graham, cinnamon, chilies and light tartness. There is milk chocolate and cinnamon in the warming finish also, a nice suggestion of lactic acidity. A complicated and World Class brew! Generously shared by landhoney!

markwise (5241) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle courtesy of my buddy. Cheers, Zack! Pours a deep stout brown/ black with a dark tan head. Nose is chocolate, chili peppers, cinnamon, vanilla, and lovely oak, vanilla, and barrel notes. Flavor is sweet apple brandy followed by chocolate, vanilla, chilis, cinnamon, vanilla, and more brandy on the finish. This was an awesome beer and I could probably kill a case single-handedly.
