Bryggeriet Djævlebryg - Gudeløs
Gudeløs pours a smooth black color with an absolute beast of a khaki colored head. The head lasts forever and eventually settles to about 1 finger and leaves a ridiculous amount of sticky lacing down the glass. The smell is full of dark flavors, with powdery dark chocolate, licorice, molasses and charred wood at the forefront. I also picked up some traces of tobacco and, surprisingly, a little tropical fruit that I thought smelled like lychee.
The taste is loaded with dark chocolate and roasted malt. I picked up a ton of rich, chocolatey sweetness throughout with some big notes of chocolate cake and brownies. The mouthfeel was smooth and velvety and worked absolutely perfectly with the all of the sweetness in this stout. The finish brought some bittersweet chocolate and charred oak. I'm not big with adding beer to things (or adding things to beer), but this is absolutely screaming to be poured over ice cream. This is dessert beer at its finest. A must try if you love all things sweet like I do. Thanks, Beau!
