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.

Medium dark brown head. Roasty chocolatey aroma with earthy notes. Very delicate and harmonic aroma. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey taste with burnt caramelly notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty resiny chocolate aftertaste with dusty burnt caramelly notes. Lingering delicate sweetness and bitterness in perfect balance, with dark chocolate, toffee, and vanilla fudge notes with background minerals. Alcohol heat remains when all else has faded. This is just excellent. (0.5l can, from Føtex, Frederikshavn.)

500 ml. can obtained in a trade with Dedollewaitor. Thx! Shared with multiple people @ Modeste 2014. Great responses all around, including people from 3 Fonteinen. Dark brown, thick mocha head. Nose is thick chocolate, lots of soy chocolate milk, ashes. Taste pure thick soy chocolate milk, light ashes, creamy, instant coffee, milk chocolate, very nice. Bit light for style, touch grainy but drinks really well with delicious thick soy chocolate milk. Getting easily cans of this should be wonderful.
