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%

Sweet aromat, quite strange for an Imperial Stout. There is more resins and cherry in front, than black malts. But in background of course there is some coffee, milk chocolate and tiny alcoholic note. The aroma itself might be a bit more intensive. It’s pitch black, non-transparent, with one to two fingers tanned head. In taste it’s very unbalanced. Definitely too sweet in the beginning. Then it’s a bit empty and in the end of aftertaste the bitterness strikes. Mouth feel is good, it’s nicely carbonated, quite smooth. In overall it’s ok, but speaking about imperial soutus - it’s not that good.

Russo (1868) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2015
Slightly brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel. Taste is the same but like a syrup and notes and alcohol. Low carbonation and full body with a weird roasted finish.

Le nez est simple mais pas vulgaire : le café. La bouche est assez douce pour une imperial stout. On évite la fin amère et les goûts habituels de fruits confits (genre pruneaux). Le café ne prend pas toute la bouche et s’efface vite sur de sympathiques notes de caramel. La fin de bouche est de style chocolat noir. Enfin, on trouve un côté rond avec des légères notes de fruits rouges. À goûter absolument pour les amateurs du genre.

MarkoNm (1500) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a deep black color, topped with a decent dark cream color head (brown actually). Nice chocolate malt aroma, some minimal presence of alcohol, roasty notes also present. Taste starts sweet, roasty body, but not too exceedingly. Some presence of coffee and chocolate and mild bittery feel in the finish. I liek it because it plays everything down a notch, not too strong, not too invasive.

szeli (62) - GERMANY - MAY 23, 2015
Aussehen: tiefschwarz, keinerlei Reflexion durch das Glas, feinporiger beiger Schaum Aroma: relativ wenig, etwas Röstmalz, Karamell, Brotkrume Geschmack: unglaublich sanft, unglaublich rund, unglaublich gut. Jedoch nicht kräftig genug für ein Imperial Stout. Milchkaffee, Röstmalz, Zartbitterschokolade, Karamell, Honig. KEIN Alkohol Nachgeschmack: kurz, angenehm, super!

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 2, 2015
330ml bottle (Orakulas, Vilnius)
Rich, slightly sticky starchy aroma. Baltic porter more than real stout. Looks good, black , large tan head. Simple sticky roasted malts. Palate is a combination of sticky and fizzy. Kinda boring. OK, alcohol well hidden, but everything’s well hidden. Where are the esters?

mateuszk (809) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Almost pitch black, beige head. In aroma roastiness, coffee, chocolate, fruits. flavour follows aroma, very nice roastiness. The beer is full bodied, with high bitter finish. In overall not bad but lacks some complexity.

aggtBeer (25) - Rock Cave, West Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2015
Poured black with a tan head. I could smell smooth chocolate, molasses, cherry, dark fruit and flowers. The flavor was bitter and milk chocolate, caramel, cherry, and fudge. I was surprised that I couldn’t detect alcohol considering the 9.8% ABV. It was very smooth in my mouth and had a medium bitterness. I was really impressed by this beer.
