COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schwarzes englisches Starkbier mit hoher Stammwürze - ein Bier von sehr kräftigem Geschmack. Der Name geht auf die Tatsache zurück, dass England am Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts Bier erfolgreich in das Baltikum exportierte. Die immense Popularität im Zarenreich bescherte dem Stout, dass für die Reise besonders stark eingebraut wurde, seinen Namen. Unser Imperial Stout besticht durch seine dunkelbraune bis intensiv Schwarze Farbe . Seine cremige, stabile gebräunte Schaumkrone ist charakteristisch. Im Antrunk steigen einen zuerst intensive Aromen von Kakao und Bitterschokolade in die Nase, während ein cremiger Cocktail aus Kaffee, Röstkastanien und frischem Bauernbrot den Gaumen umschmeichelt, bewahrt unser Imperial trotz der kraftvollen Art seine Fasson. Im Nachtrunk unerwartet weich, erstaunlich sanft und abgerundet mit einem dezenten einladenden hopfigen Abgang, lädt es zum weitertrinken an. Erhältlich in 0,75L Flasche mit Naturkorken Unfiltriertes dunkles Alebier Rein obergärige Hefe Röst und Bitterschokoladengeschmack Haupt- und Nachgärung im geschlossenen Gär- und Lagertank Gebraut nach dem Rezept des Braumeisters Eric Toft aus der Schönramer Brauerei 9,8% vol. alc, Stammwürze 21,0%

Bottle at Tap House Munich. Almost black. Tan head vanished fast. Aroma is not intensiv, dark malts. Flavours of chocolate, coffee, dark malts and bitterness from hops. Wouldn’t say it has 9,8% alcohol. I was expecting something different, stronger in taste and aroma. Good for beginning adventure with this style.

lamf (80) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours almost black with some dirty-white head. Sweet aroma. There is a caramel, but there’s also lack of promised coffee and chocolate. Same in taste. It’s full-bodied and sweet, lack of roastiness, lack of bitterness. In blind test, I would have said strong sweet stout or something like that. Not my glass of beer.

aleigator (278) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2014
Almost black color, with a huge, froth dark-brown color, leaving a spider web lacing. Aromas a full of scorched malts, roasted coffee beans and a huge load of licorice chocolate with sweet toffee notes to it. Taste reflects basically the smell, but in a changed order. Begins with unsweetened chocolate, very smooth and creamy, accompanied by unexpected earthy, burned malts. Those also reveal the sweeter components of the brew, mainly mousse au chocolate, molasse and cane sugar. This uprising sweetness then gets countered by a slick coffee bitterness, which hits the palate in a very smooth fashion. The cream impression remains, and while the coffee does not lead to a dominating bitterness, it adds a gentle bread note to the beer with a herbal tobacco infusion, giving this a great balance, with a really dark, roasty character. Finishes slightly bitter, with hops being detectable for a short glance, while earthy, almost smoked malts remain commanding. Surprisingly good, alcohol is perfectly hidden, very bold, as this dares to be bitter and malt defined in a very dark, roasted fashion - different to german stouts I’ve had so far.
