Danish: Russian Imperial Stout har sit navn tilbage fra zartiden i Rusland. Denne kulsorte øl var zarhoffets foretrukne. Vi har tilladt os at give denne klassiske øl en lille drejning i retning af vores smag. Der er brugt tørverøget malt og tilsat et stænk friskbrygget colombiansk kaffe. Hvornår kan man så drikke denne øl ? Traditionelt er stout jo betragtet som dessertøl. Det er vores erfaring, at det er synd for øllet hvis desserten er af den søde slags. Prøv den til bløde oste eller chokolade med min. 70 pct kakao. Men Hornbeer Russian Imperial Stout går altså også fint alene!

50cl bottle. Pours black with tan lasting head. Aroma is chocolatey and not much else, hints of hops. Tastes quite tame with some chocolate and coffee. Mild in every aspect, probably nice in right circumstance (with food?).

Zekada (374) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours Black with a medium brown head. Aroma is sweet, with chocolates and malts. Taste is deep with roasted malts and a bit smokey, not very sweet though some coffee and chocolate. Palate is a bit too thin with an oily texture. Overall a nice beer, though I wished for a bigger and fuller taste.

Svart med ett stort, tätt och kraftigt brunt skum. Doft: Kakao, kakao, Dajm, nöt kräm, lite alkohol. Smak: Billigt och dåligt kaffe, mörk choklad, lakrits, alkohol, bränt bröd.

mcberko (8278) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
500mL bottle, pours jet black with a towering brown head that overflows the glass -- something seems wrong here. After waiting 10 minutes to let this thing temper down, the aroma brings out notes of roasted malt, burnt rubber, and light sourness. Flavour is along the same lines, with burnt roasted malt, rubber, and maybe a hint of sourness. No doubt there’s an infection to this. The carbonation is way too high as well. It’s not a disaster, and once you let it settle a bit, it’s okay, but this is clearly off.

Moolesen (282) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle 50cl. Pitch black with a foamy brown head. Intense flavours of peat, coffee and some chocolate. Beautifull taste. Extreme rich, full bodied and nice in balance with a good portion hops. Well done! Long lasting finish.

50 cl systembolaget. Denna öl fick vara med och fira min fantastiska löparskor. Ölen är dock bara godkänd!

Pours black with a large, thick head.
aroma is roasted malt, biscuits and char coal.

A pretty basic Imperial Stout.

Flaska köpt på Systembolaget Ringen, Stockholm. Liten besvikelse, kroppen är tunn och smaken saknar egentligen större karaktär. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
