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.

In a box from GRG1313 - one of the many 'send me a label' boxes he's posted - that included Foothills Baltic Porter and vintage AleSmith Speedway Stout , this bottle more than held it's own. Thanks to GRG1313 for an amazing box of beer as well.

Rich flavor is malt-heavy with a lot of bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is perhaps a bit watery at the end. Not 100% on the year this was bottled, but it's possible it just spent a little to long in the cellar. Doesn't impact the drinkability, but dings the overall score a shade.

Enjoyed this at just below room temp, and both the aroma and the flavor were robust enough to warrant a long, slow session with this bottle. Thoroughly enjoyed this and was reminded that finding a nice, simple, stout isn't always easy in the current market.

Also, there is zero chance you would peg this at 10.5%. I didn't believe the site and double-checked. Remarkably smooth and no trace of booze.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours an opaque black brown with a solid quarter inch mocha head that lingers as a thin layer of foam.

Roast malt, dark chocolate, booze, vanilla, and a hint of dark cherries form the sweet aroma.

Roast character dominates, with dark chocolate undertones and a bitter, espresso , peppery finish. There's an underpinning of dark berries. Nutty, toasted notes emerge as it warms.

Body is syrupy, with minimal carbonation, and an astringent finish. Alcohol warmth is pretty high.

A little harsh in the roast character, and not as complex as I hoped. Might improve with age. Bitterness is over the top.

Serving type: on-tap
