COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vores bud på en anderledes stout med tørverøget malt. Her er tale om en rigtig mandfolkeøl med meget af det hele. Øllet er brygget på ristede bygmalte, birkerøget malt, tørverøget malt, karamelmalte og alemalt. Øllet er humlet mere end ellers for at balancere den kraftige maltprofil. Og hvornår kan man så drikke denne øl? Til maden er det en udpræget dessertøl eller til mørk chokolade. Kraftige oste er også et fint tilbehør, men det er altså også tilladt at drikke den uden noget til andet end en god lænestol.

Colour is very dark but when held to light faint dark red notes at bottom. Aroma is very smokey with some notes of smoked oak and dark malts. the taste is very powerful. a bit too carbonated so the bubbles stay on your tongue. no notes of matured fruit. but strong notes of whisky and strong smokey notes. A good stout all in all.

Pours a deep black color with a thick, creamy, light brown head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and resinous hops. The flavor is quite solid with its resinous hops, roasted malt, moderate sweetness and lasting bitterness. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and medium carbonation. This hoppy imperial stout is a pleasure to sip, I wouldn’t mind having it again, and again.

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Roasted malts, clove-y phenolics, coniferous hops and blackberry fruitiness coalesce, while biscuity cereals and resinous bitterness join forces to conclude this elegant Imperial Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A healthy head of foam diminishes into the pure blackness.
-The hop bitterness adequately balances out the finish.
-Caramel is also tasted, even though it is not as prominent as other examples of the style.
-A lick of alcohol blends in nicely.
-This is not your typical super intense Imperial Stout; it is rather drinkable for its size and does not rely solely on residual sugars to impress the tastebuds.
-The nose could show more depth.
-The 1st half of the flavor profile is not as appealing as the 2nd half.

Boutip (4920) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large darn brown frothy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with dry notes is OK. Taste is also a mix between some dry roasted malt with light coffee notes and subtle unrefined grain notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I though this was OK but there something in the dry aftertaste (I have a hard time putting my hand on it) that wasn’t too my liking.
