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.

Clear amber appearance, medium head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet with some bitterness, decently rounded, but not outstanding. Average English Pale Ale style beer.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. A crystal clear dark golden beer with a small, dense, white head. The aroma is quite grainy and sweetish, with grass and pine cone notes. Some cooked vegetables. It’s medium bodied and with a very soft carbonation. Some glue hints in the flavor, it’s sweet and corn-ish, with a resiny, grassy touch. Lasting finish. Rather boring this one, and in my opinion it’s not very good either. 150418

Clear reddish beer with very small head. Aroma is sweet malty, grass and metal. Taste is sweet malty, earthy. Thin, quite high co2, quick finish. Blehh, thought this would be at least ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

panzerwolf (152) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
Pours amber. A very fresh taste, a bit of sharpness to it. Malts with a little bit of sweetness, a very brief bite of bitterness and floral aftertaste. Caramel and hay. A very interesting blend for sure.

Toomio (306) - Joensuu, FINLAND - APR 7, 2015
Aleksi tasapainoinen. Yllättävä jopa. Hieno pullo ja antiikkinen maku. Värisävyt ja aromi vielä kohdilleen.
