G.L Carlsberg Imperial Stout Porter was introduced in 1930, won the silver medal in 1996 World Championships, and is still remembered as the world’s best Porter. Sold in bottles and cans.

Aromas and flavours are dominated by caramel, liquorice, Munich malt and roasted chocolate malt, providing a deep dark brown colour with light brown foam.

Serving suggestions: Should be served at 7-10 C. Its strong character makes it suitable for the cold winter months. Its caramelized malt flavor pair well with game, roast pork, sausage, potatoes, ham or desserts with chocolate. It could also be enjoyed by itself or mixed with lemon water.

Can from a rest area shop in Denmark. Aroma is roasted malt, liquorice, dark chocolate, touch of coffee. Flavour is medium sweet with some roasty bitterness in the bittersweet finish. Body is medium to full. Surprisingly well-realised Baltic Porter from a macro corporation. Credit where credit is due, I guess.

Danke bamsen78 ! Ein schönes Carlsberg, das zu überzeugen weiß mit seinen wunderbaren Aromen wie Schoko, Karamell, etwas Lakritz, durchaus erdigen Anleihen und einem Schuss Getreide. Dick und stark, dabei dennoch süffig und einfach zu trinken. Die Quittung folgt bekanntlich später.

Says Imperial stout, in fact is baltic porter, well... Pretty average (at best), some roastiness, mild fruits like prunes and raisins, some chocolate, faint notes of coffee. Pretty bitter (on roasty side). In nose it’s pretty meh, really faint notes of dark chocolate with roasty undertones. Carbonation is semi-high.

Helt svart med lysebrunt lavt skum. Svak duft med mye knekk, lakris og karamell. Fyldig smak med kaffe, lakris og brunt sukker. Lett bitter avslutning.

Bottle from a Copenhagen convenience store. Poured almost black with a thin broken light tan head. The aroma is roasty malt, chocolate. alcohol liqourice, coffee palate. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich, roasty, dry coffee, chocolate palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Much better than I expected.
