A. Le Coq & Co was established in 1807 in London. Production was transferred from London to Estonia (Tartu) at the beginning of the 20th century and it is still produced there today.

In 1912. A. Le Coq was chosen as the official supplier of the Russian emperor’s court, and Imperial Extra Double Stout, which was brewed in Tartu, became available throughout the empire.

We have launched A. Le Coq Imperial again to show respect for our old traditions. The Imperial range is for beer lovers with exquisite taste.

Imperial Ale is a top-fermented beer with a rich flavour bouquet. There is a perfect balance between the delicious bitter taste of hops and the sweetness of malt. The copper colour that characterises the best ales adds a respectability referring to its imperial past.

Zarkam (428) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
400ml bottle, clear amber colour, small frothy mostly vanishing small white head, almost no lacing. Moderately malty aroma of bread and nuts along with light resiny hops and some fruity esthers from the yeast. Taste is intially balanced and moderately acidic, turning into a moderately bitter feel with a mildly acetic feel. Medium body, oily texture, softish carbonation. Passable ale, could be a bit hoppier, having tried the other two of this product line I was positively surprise however.
