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.

Gangstergafje (311) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2015
The beer looks like pilsener. The color is quite dark golden. 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 jiesty 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.

SvanteL (17) - SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Bärnstensfärgad. Maltog doft med lite karamell och apelsinskal. Även smaken är maltbaserad och karamellsöt med en liten fin apelsintouch. I stil som en traditionell engelsk ale och som sådan riktigt trevlig.

jamaty (1348) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Ambar, cobriza, de escasa espuma. Aroma dulce y tostado. En boca, cuerpo ligero y gas medio, y una rica base de caramelo, y recuerdo de té y manzana roja. Predominio claramente dulce. No es redonda, le falta equilibrio y cuerpo, y puede resultar cansina pero el sabor es agradable.

Linkiewitz (67) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
AROMAT: Duża słodowość, delikatne nuty chmieli i trochę karmelu. WYGLĄD: Klarowne, o barwie ciemnego złota i szybko opadającą pianą. SMAK: Dziwna kukurydza, coś jakby pszenica (tylko skąd?), dużo słodu, mało chmielu i nikła kwasowość. Piwo o niskiej goryczce, niskim wysyceniu i niezłej pijalności. Prawdę powiedziawszy spodziewałem się czegoś gorszego, fatalnie nie jest.
