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.

Aromat jest mało intensywny, ale można wyczuć belgijskie estry i trochę karmelu. Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne. Piana niezła, długo się utrzymuje i zdobi szkło. W smaku również ciężko coś wyczuć, jest słodkie. Piwo jest bardzo płaskie. Wysycenie niskie.

pityu (294) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle - Clear deep golden colour with a small, quickly disappearing white head. Weak malty aromas and maybe some floral hops and some unpleasant cooked veggies. Taste is sweet grainy maltiness and estery fruitiness, low hop bitterness. Too light body for a belgian ale. It has some sourish aftertaste. Forgettable.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 The beer has a beautiful reddish amber color. There is a nice layer of white foam on top of the beer. It looks delicious. The smell reminds me of La Trappe. It has a special yeasty aroma. Very nice. The smell has a kind of savory and bitter aroma. The taste has this same La Trappe appearance, so I love it. It reminds me the most of La Trappe blond, the smell, appearance and taste all have a little bit of this beer in it. This beer is definitely the best of the Albert le Coq Imperial beers.
