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.

Truly a remarkable beer. Nose gives apple, cinnamon spice, some cocoa. Taste follows suit, but has a really excellent meshing of the apple character with the spice notes and the chocolate sweetness isn’t overwhelmingly rich to take those flavors to the background. Somehow manages to not taste boozy at all, and the apple flavor comes extremely naturally rather than tasting like flavored alcohol. I wouldn’t say this is as good a pure stout as AB Hunahpu, probably because the base beer isn’t in the same realm of awesomeness, but it’s got a flavor profile that really differentiates itself. Extremely grateful to have had a nice large glass of this.

Bottle @ Himmeriget. Pitch black pour with a dark tan head (just like the others). Tons of spice, cinnamon, bitter chocolate, caramel, red apple, apple skin, some chilli heat and light roast. Super good!

So I’m a dane - you all know where I got this. If you need to ask, you’ll never. Split two ways, cause we don’t 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.

[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.
