Danish: Denne kraftige Imperial Stout er lagret 3 måneder på Whisky fade fra destilleriet Stranahans. Destilleriet som ligger i Denver, Colorado, USA, er det første micro destilleri i Colorado og omkring Rocky Mountains. Destilleriet ligger ved foden af The Rockies, og får deres råvarer fra bjergene. Vandet som kommer fra den sne der er på toppene om vinteren, filtreres gennem trækul for et fjerne alle urenheder, og bibeholder derfor alle dets smagsstoffer og mineraler. Alkohol: 11,5 %. Holdbarhed: 10 år. Bør nydes ved 10-12 grader C.

Intensively black with brown foam. Notes from burned malts and some sweetness from the barrels. I served it at 5 degrees, very sweet and round taste. As it were tempered, the taste got a head of alcohol, coffee, chocolate and whisky.By far the best imperial stout I’ve ever tried! Give me more!

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Black with a lasting light brown head. Big aroma of roast malt, oak and alcohol. Very elegant aroma note of bourbon oak. Rich, complex flavour is sweetish, has the roast malt and alcohol, and the oak offering sweet vanilla and tart tannin. The roastiness is surprisingly mild, but the bitterness is insisting. The oak is just the right proportion, and the overall balance is delicious. Carbonation is low which makes you (or at least a real ale lover like me) really feel the body of the beer itself. Did I mention, I like this beer?

Tasted again 2012. The age shows with a slightly dusty, oxidized aroma, but the balance and complexity still makes this damn close to a 4.8 beer.

Bottle. A black beer with a big brown head. The aroma is of roasted malt, soya, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, hops and wood, light alcoholic finish. The taste is much the same, smooth and well balanced. Medium to full body with a dry finish. This is a great beer !!!

The Fonefan/Brugmansia Cnudde tasting. Courtesy of Papsoe. It’s a pitch black beer with a light brown, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, oak, vanilla, and light, light whisky - mmmm very promising! The mouthfeel is smooth, pleasant and semi-oily. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, oak, vanilla, light sweetness and the whisky is neither too weak nor too strong. I also find coffee, sweet licorice and hints of chocolate. The finish has a slightly burnt bitterness. It hides the ABV impressingly well, and even more so, considering how "new" it is. It’s a very harmonic and nice beer, it would be very interesting to re-rate it in a few years from now.

Bottle. Pitch black with a brown and creamy head that lasts forever. Great complex aroma of chocolate, coffee, good spirits, mild whisky and a hint of alcohol (but not overwhelming). Flavour and mouthfeel are very well balanced; not extremely bitter or sweet. Roasted, full body, creamy, suitable carbonation. Amager Bryghus simply make great imperial stouts!

Thanks to Jacob and Morten at Amager Bryghus for opening this one. Black with a nice brown head. Roasted flavours of coffee and toffee mingles with the smoky sweet aroma of the whisky barrels and a whiff of hops. On the palate the roasted flavours are still there - this IS an Imperial Stout - but the mouthfeel is much more mellow and smooth than the ordinary Imperial Stout from Amager (which is anything but ordinary...). It finishes off sweet but not in a sugary kind of way - the aromas are sweet; vanilla and a hint of whisky (apricots, candied oranges, heather and smoke), but the mouthfeel is fairly dry. For a beer this size it has amazing drinkability. A great beer.

Bottle 25cl. Batch # 52. [Courtesy of Morten, thanks buddy!] Huge thick creamy brown head that really lasted and left excellent puddle of lacework. Thick liquid with a black sparkling color. Explosion of notes that was very complex. Berries, vanilla, sweet feel of whisky, underlying chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Some wood and alcohol as well. Over the palate came liquorish, lots of malty notes with a thick creamy and mild alcoholic texture. Very full bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor in a very balanced way. Sweet and bitter vanilla-woody English liquorish finish with a faint feel of dry hops at the very end. Excellent work guys!
