COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Imperial Stout inspired by the traditional Imperial Russian Stouts that were created in London in the XVIII century by the Thraleís Brewery, especially for Catherine IIís court in Russia. With its deep dark colour and an important ABV, Imperiale itís the perfect beer for the coldest months thanks to its round, rich and creamy body and itís roasted coffee and liquorice notes that softly mingle with the honey ones. Uniques features given by the different variety of malts we used, but also by the three month ageing in wooden barrel.

Fantastico profumo. In bocca ti riempie, le papille gustative impazziscono e non riesci a stargli appresso. Forte retrogusto di liquirizia. Una birra morbida e calda.

Premetto che sembra una stout, e dico anche che non ha quel sapore/odore metallico riscontrato in altre birre del birrificio del borgo! Detto questo non riesco proprio a capire perche ha un rating cosií basso e perche a molti sembra non piacere. Appena stappata si viene investiti da aromi di cioccolaro e noci, versata risultadi un bel colore scuro cioccolatoso, abbastanza densa e secca con una schiuma appena velata sulla supefice! Il sapore eí secco di cioccolato e fave una punta di liquerizia, leggere noci e altro, molto complessa a mio avviso! Retrogusto delicato e persistente. Una cosa che mi ha lasciato favorevolmente colpito, eí il fatto che i suoi 9,8% gradi non si sentono, ATENZIONE! Davvero molto molto buona!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
75 cl Bottle. Sour aroma and sour flavour. A lot of other flavour but totally over dominated by sourness. To ugly and too infected. Just buy some sour infected crap for 20$

omhper (19370) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2008
Bottled at Monkís Cafť, Stockholm. Cloudy mahogany colour, small beige head. Fruity and nutty, medium to full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Mildly coffeeish with notes of caramel and tobacco. Light ashy salty bitterness. Itís greatest assetts are its soft, creamy mouthfeel and broad spectre of flavours.

Medium-bodied with malty and a bit smokey flavours of cocoa-powder, yeast, toasted malts, anise, black pepper, ash and tobacco. Dryish finish of neutral yeast, nougat, tobacco and anise.

Maria (10143) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2008
This beer contradicts itself from the beginning pronouncing the ABV to be 9.8 on one label and 6.1 on the other, but judging from the flavour I tend to believe the latter. Itís dark mahogany with a red hue and a low, creamy head. The aroma isnít very strong, and it has notes of cocoa and roasted malt. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, cocoa, a sourness (like in a beginning infection) and a light bitterness. The overall impression is thin and peculiar.
