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.

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.

Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2015
En lidt overset øl, hvilket nok skyldes at den er så kendt her i landet at den igen er gået i glemmebogen. Den er faktisk rigtig god.

Stor smag som en porter skal have. Den har smag af lakrids og en lille smule røg. God øl.
