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.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Thanks to Toms, canned version
This one is sample of good balance, not too bitter and could be little more sweet, but thats the point. Pours deep, deep reddish, almost black with small, soapy, cream-brown top. On nose it comes pleasant dominant roasted malts, some cocoa and light chocolate tones, yeasty sweetness, no sugary touch, min hopping level. Taste is light sweet and medium+ bitter from darker malts, again didn’t sensed hops. Dry finish, medium bodied, watery and a bit slick texture, mild carbonation, no boozy defects. Very enjoyable balance, not sugary sour aftertaste, nice.

Vestergaard (402) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2014
On 50cl can. Pours pitch black with a short lasting, tan head. Aroma has roasted- and caramel malts, dades, watery banana-like fruits, caramelized sugar. Taste is slightly more bitter, good roast, caramel, bitter-hoppy aftertaste, and a tiny bit of fruit. slight watery malt profile, though it has rather full body. Medium-high carbonation. Great value beer for sure!
