COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

ClubGonzo (5226) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a massive cloudy caramel-hued beige head. Nose is dark berries, coffee, grains, caramel and hints of licorice and leather. Taste is bitter herbs, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and hints of grains and dark berries. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but the high carb levels and bitter herbal hoppy notes makes it a bit harsh around the edges. Decent enough, but certainly no winner in this weight class.,

tom10101 (4909) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle (500 ml) at home. Best before 06-06-2017. Pitch black with a frothy large persistent brown head leaving good lacing. Aroma is of fudge, vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, raisins and mild spiciness. Taste is sligthly sweet, mildly acidic and quite fruity with raisins, roasted malts, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Medium body, but a bit thin for the style. Medium carbonation. Fruity finish. Short aftertaste. Decent flavorful RIS but thin on the mouthfeel and a bit too acidic for my liking.

abemorsten (3495) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2016
0,5 l flaske fra Randaberg-polet. Svart kropp med et tykt, tett, mørkebrunt skum som henger på veggene. Kraftig aroma av molasse, kreosot og torvrøykt malt. Deilige smaker av røstet rosin og røykt malt. God fylde, tørr med en masse ettersmak. Nam!

Finn (6091) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2016
Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Svart. Høyt luftig lysebrunt skum som daler sakte og etterlater pene filigranser. God aroma av sjokolade. Smaken starter forsiktig men utvikler seg voldsomt. Først søt sjokolade men den blir raskt avløst av røstet malt & kaffe. Blir lett bitter og tørr etter hvert. Etterlater en veldig tørr ettersmak hvor en aner litt kaffe.
