Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of cherry, hint of chocolate, hint of hops, and a hint of wood. Fits the style of a Russian Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, hint of hop, hint of coffee, hint of chocolate, and a hint of wood. Overall, good appearance, blend, body, and complexity.

3.76/5  rDev -8.1%

Appearance: pours with a light to medium body. Finger of head on the pour and had a thin layer of lacing on the edges of the glass while drinking. Low active carbonation in the glass while drinking.

Smell: Coffee and big potent hops jump out right away. Definitely a sweet malt character with a light roasted character to it. So hop forward though, reminds me a lot of Founders Imperial Stout.

Taste: Mossy, oaky, hop front attacks the palate immediately. Slight medicinal, synthetic malt character. Earthy hops continue to tingle throughout drinking. Light roasted coffee malt flavor. Palate is saturated and exhausted by this brew.

Mouthfeel: heavy and challenging for the palate. Strong hop character rides throughout.

Overall: Definitely hit it with trying to create an American stout. Huge hop profile with medium to light malt character. Mossy earthiness rides throughout..

Pours a five finger brown head that fades slowly but leaves no lace. Black color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Sweet coffee nose and flavor is sweet coffee with slight bitter coffee finish. Higher ABV is hidden. $9.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.

4.26/5  rDev +4.2%

500 cL bottle purchased at the brewery in Copenhagen. Batch no. 545. Drink by Dec 2017. Poured into an Amager snifter glass...

A: Pours a mahogany-black, with two fingers of coffee-foam head; minimal retention leaves a few slight strings of lace - kind of expected at 10.5%, I guess; bottle conditioning introduces some floaties upon the second pour.

S: Malted milk; roasted malt some considerable alcohol / nose warming as the beer approaches room temp.

T: Roasty malts and dark chocolate; some black coffee notes; hop finish is massive - piney bitterness is pretty big on the end; not much of an indication of the 10.5%, although there are some hints as the beer warms.

M: Full mouthfeel; low carbonation; some heat as it warms... I think this beer could benefit from an extra dose of carbonation (which is pretty much my only issue with this brew).

O: A really nice Russian Imperial Stout. Complex and hoppy, yet drinkable; many layers of flavor are experienced, especially as it warms. I'm interested in trying the Amager Imperial Stout, now... Glad I picked this up!

500 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head that sticks around for a little while, and there's also a decent amount of lacing. It smells like roasted malt, coffee, licorice, chocolate, and some dark fruit. The brew tastes like roasted malt, dark fruit, nuts, coffee, licorice and chocolate. There's a nice lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with low/moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brew, worth a try. $9.99 a bottle.

Lost my review, great...

Pours a nice black beer with dark brown around the edges. Great rocky head and retention.

Smells nice, some coffee, liquorice and some earthiness either from the malts of hops.
Some sweetness.

Overall a decent tasting beer but pretty bitter. I had difficulty finishing it.
It has some sweetness, it has coffee, liquorice and chocolate and an earthiness (from mainland/british hops together with the malts perhaps?).

Mouthfeel is medium, thin for the style.
Smooth though with medium-low carbonation.

Overall better than their IPA but pretty damn bitter, would go better in a 33cl bottle if you ask me.
