Enjoyed from a bottle, this imperial stout pours a thick as midnight black with a decent head with a vigorous pour and decent lacing. Nose of inviting chocolate, sweet dark malts, black coffee, rich roasted grains, and alcohol. Flavors are chocolate and dark molasses up front, chocolate to the back and sides, and an overall sweetness that is not cloying in the least. Smooth mouth feel and mild carbonation makes this sipper a winner.
The only shame is that the "one Danish crown given to the atheist society" is not given to a more noble cause like many Abbey ales do.....as in "good works" I.E. THE POOR....not money to people who complain. Overall though I would put this gem up against any imperial stout.

Bottle purchased from Green's on Ponce in Atlanta.

Pours black with a one-finger brown head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of robust roasted malts with good amounts of sweet molasses and hints of semi-sweet chocolate. As the beer warms the molasses aromas intensify.

Tastes similar to how it smells although the roasted malts are a bit lighter. Equal parts of roasted malts and dark molasses flavors kick things off. Midway through the sip the flavors turn slightly bitter with the addition of unsweetened chocolate flavors. The chocolate and roasted malt flavors carry through to a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall I was impressed with this bad boy - a very well balanced beer that's easy to drink despite the somewhat high ABV. Well worth a shot.

Thanks very much to garlicfire for sharing. Served in a tulip. Poured one shade shy of black with a quarter-inch, khaki-colored head. Nose reveals coffee, cocoa, lactose and coffee syrup. Flavor profile follows the nose; however, a roasty quality rounds it all out nicely. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and lightly carbonated. An incredibly easy-drinking IS. Really top notch.

500ml bottle - and I'm contributing to the Danish Atheist society - kind of the polar opposite of buying Trappist beers...Dandy Warhols' beer...Mr. Dawkins' wet beer dream. I won't go on.

This beer pours a solid black, with the slightest of basal cola edges, and a teeming tower of puffy, egregiously foamy, and somewhat fizzy mocha head, which crowds the glass for a spell, displaying annoyingly stellar retention, taking its sweet time before allowing me even a half fill.

Left behind eventually is some nice, densely webbed lace, and an aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, Nordic licorice, stale coffee, treacle, and sour, boozy dark fruit. The taste is roasted caramel malt, bathed Cadbury-style in baker's chocolate, topped off with crushed coffee beans, a splash of lactic sourness, more salty black licorice, the whole (unholy) mess tempered only slightly by some bitter green hoppiness. Underlying all is a mildly astringent heat that increases commensurately as the drink warms.

The carbonation is quite soft, just a lilting frothiness throughout, the body full in weight, nearly smooth (the booze and hops still have to have their say), and fairly creamy. It finishes sweet, chocolaty, somewhat complexly bitter, and certainly cockles-warming.

A lovely rendition of the style, no searing booziness or teeth-melting saccharine overdose. Lots of variety, all tied nicely together, and quite enjoyable to sip a little too swiftly, even on a late summer scorcher of a day, all the while ruminating on the deeper meaning of liff.

Poured into a Stone Brewery flute glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black. Thin light brown head with good retention, eventually dissipates into a ring around the glass with tenuous lacing. Aroma of dark and dried fruit, dark malt, somewhat oxidized. Complex flavor of dark fruit, sweet dark malts, chocolate, a hint of roastiness and oxidation. Somewhat sweet malty finish with nice neutral hops. Flavors well integrated. Medium bodied with some creaminess. A nicely made stout that was a pleasure to drink.

Poured from the bottle into my Founders snifter. Got this one in a trade with BigSexy410. Thanks.

A - Black as a beer can be with a big brown/tan head that won't go away

S - Roasted malty goodness with a hint of dried fruits giving it a nice sweet aroma.

T - Follows the smell closely. Big roast taste mixed with a sweet dried fruit flavor. Remins me a lot of an Irish Dry Stout.

M - medium to heavy body with a good amount of carbonation. Really really dry for such a big beer.

D - Goes down real easy. I find it hard to believe this is an 8.9% beer, it drinks like a 5% Irish Dry Stout. I'm glad I got to drink this beer and support a good cause at the same time. I would drink this again.
