We teamed up with EvilTwin Brewing and our great friend Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø to brew our latest dessert-inspired imperial stout: Danish Guy. Extending on our our previous imperial stout collaboration, Dusk Trill Dawn, and inspired by the Danish cinnamon roll, kanelsnegle, we utilized a mash with a bevy of dark roasted malts and dark brown sugar and then conditioned the beer over an extended period with potent Vietnamese Cinnamon, Madagascar Vanilla Beans and Toasted Almonds to maximum its flavor.
The end result pours pitch black with a light brown head. With a swirl of the glass, Danish Guy announces itself with rich aromas of cinnamon-brown sugar, caramel roasted almonds and melted dark chocolate bits that extend right through to the palate. Immediately calling to mind flavors of freshly baked, indulgent cinnamon rolls the palate shows ample depth with layers of vanilla glaze, subtle dark fruits and molasses. Medium bodied with a velvety mouthfeel, Danish Guy offers a mild flourish of cinnamon spice towards the back end for a smooth and decadent finish.
