Batch 999, 2015 vintage. Pours pitch black with a finger of gorgeous, creamy head the color of cocoa powder. Smells of baker's chocolate, darkly roasted malts, barley, fennel seed, and raisin, with hints of nutmeg and other winter spices. Quite a tongue-coater, with a rich complexity of flavors; this is fairly sweet, with a lot of chocolate and also prominent anise/licorice notes. As the beer warms, it presents more depth to the malt bill, but the sweetness is balanced by dark chocolate bitterness and the Cascade and Chinook hops.

For a self-proclaimed "no nonsense" beer, this is an impressive accomplishment. It holds its own against most of the barrel-aged stouts with flavoring agents; it also carries a similar price tag, but I think it is well worth seeking out.

2015 Vintage

Appearance: Whoa, I love the dark head and black body.

Smell: Cocoa up front, coffee next, and then Ovaltine? So frickin' nice.

Taste: Milk chocolate mostly, but alternating with a bit of bitter chocolate, a hint of espresso, too.

Mouthfeel: Velvet, velvet, velvet.

Overall: I never tried this before it was "RETIRED!" So glad it was brought back!

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a huge dark brown foamy head with excellent retention and some good amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some sweet notes and loads of black chocolate notes is very enticing. Taste is also dominated by loads of sweet residual sugar notes with some really nice black chocolate notes and quite a bit of residual sugar notes. Body is extremely full with good creamy texture and with good carbonation and almost no alcohol was apparent. Huge imperial stout with loads of flavours while retaining some good drinkability feature.

Got this one at the De Molen shop in Bodegraven.

From a 50cl bottle into a snifter
Batch 601
Best Before May 2018

APPEARANCE: A dark black pour yields a two finger, medium looking, fluffy, mocha colored head with great retention. Black body with higher levels of carbonation for the style. Head slowly fades to a full foam cap and sticks to the sides of the glass. Lots of carbonation pushes its way to the top of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains and leaves some decent lacing down the glass. Carbonation is a little high, but it results in a nice looking head over a very black body.

SMELL: Big nose of roasted grain and lots of cocoa powder, chocolate, sweet cream and caramel aromas. Good stuff.

TASTE: Follows the nose nicely with a roasted grain and chocolate beginning, some milk chocolate and lots of cocoa powder again. Sweet cream and vanilla at the swallow with a big aftertaste of roasted and burnt grains, caramel and vanilla cream sweetness, cocoa powder, bitter dark chocolate and coffee. A touch of alcohol lends some dark fruit flavors as well. Really flavorful and enjoyable.

PALATE: Medium-fuller body and medium levels of carbonation. Very creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly stick with a bit of a burn at the swallow. A touch of heat lingers.

OVERALL: This was really nice. Lots of roasted and charred flavors with chocolate and sweet notes all over the place. Very flavorful. Lots of the typical Danish qualities in this one with a much fuller and heavier feel. The alcohol presence is well measured as well. Solid and enjoyable; probably my favorite from Amager up to this point. Recommended.
