COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En "Imperial Stout" med potens. Svart som natten och stark som synden, framkallar den kraftiga känslor och värmer hjärtan. Kan med fördel användas för att bota kallt sinnelag. Öltypen har "testats kliniskt" i Ryssland sedan Katarina den storas tid.

CapFlu (4469) - Victoria, British Columbia, - NOV 14, 2012
(25cl bottle) Courtesy of Blomster in a trade. Pours a thin, quick dissipating brown frothy head atop a black body. Nose of soya sauce and molasses, somewhat burnt. Nice roasty nuts and burnt pot-bottom flavour base, thick and mildly carbonated on the palate. Very robust - actually hard to believ this is only 9.5% abv, I would have expected closer to 10.5-11%. Very drinkable but when drinking alone its nice to have an easily consumable 250ml bottle. Thanks Christer!

500ml bottle picked up at Grassroots
Pours dark brown with a small brown head and some lacing. Aroma roasted malts, roast coffee, dark milk chocolate and woody. Flavors roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, woody with a dry finish
Nice. I didn’t care for it at first but it’s growing on me.

Idiosynkrasie (3617) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma, slightly earthy, nutty, hints of cocoa, dried treacle, plum, raisin; while warming up even more spicy and herbal, some lovage, creamy balsamico. Taste is dry dark malty, roasty, minimally metallic, a touch of plum, raisin, some treacle and cocoa; almost no malt sweetness left. Rich and complex, as wanted; dryness, the lack of heavy sweetness makes Idjit! dangerously drinkable. Matches a category named ’Classic British’ in my memory, reminds me of my primal Courage Imperial Russian Stout experience that dates back almost 20 years, reproducing images of those precious, small-sized 170ml bottles and the imaginary feeling of getting in touch with history. Extra point for triggering.

Meilby (7245) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle 330ml @ Cabin, Tråsåvika Camping
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, licorice, brown sugar and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, smooth, chocolate, licorice and coffee finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. It pours a dark, dark brown body under a small, dense, dark beige head. The aroma is very coffee-ish, with caramel sauce, roasted, almost burnt malts, dark chocolate and some soy sauce hints. It’s full-bodied, soft and slightly alcoholic on the palate. Even though it’s full-bodied it slides down very easily. Lots of coffee and coffee grit flavor, roasted kind of bitterness and some hoppy notes too. Bonfire hints and dark chocolate. Lasting bitter, roasted and coffee-ish finish with dark bitter chocolate coming towards the very end. Tasteful and pleasant this one, not very warming considering the ABV, and it’s almost dangerously drinkable. Well worth a revisit if I bump into it again. A Swedish classic indeed. 140619

Pyobon (897) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2014
(Bottle) Very dark, essentially black, with thin tawny head. Disconcertingly, as I poured carefully to avoid any sediment gelatinous lumps appeared in the last centimeter or so and what remained in the bottle bordered on glutinous. Assertive and pleasant aroma with notes if black coffee and slightly burnt toast. Full body with gentle but sufficient carbonation. Rich and dark taste with flavours of very dark chocolate, coffee, dark roast malt with pleasant hints of raisins and a slight dark toffee sweetness. It’s a good beer but not a great beer - a little harsh, and I was rather off put by how it poured (and I have not reached the bottom of the glass yet - I may end up revising the palate rating if there are nasty things waiting for me there!)

Very drinkable non-watery yet not overwhelming cloyingly stout. Good bitterness, roasted aroma. Just a very nice full bodied stout.

Vestergaard (258) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle, exp. 2015. Pours fairly "clear" dark brown to black. No head. Aroma is huge, sweet, chocolate, not much roast. Taste on the other hand is nothing like the aroma: Roasted, licorice, coffee, slight leather, slight vanilla. Rather prominent alcohol. Not enough body for such a low carbonation, though the alcohol adds some sharpness to it. Heat in the end. Decent taste, but overall no great beer.
