COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor's note: Voted best new beer 2007 by the Danish Society of Beer Enthusiasts.

Danish: Imperial Stout er en mørk og fyldig øl med et flot mørkt cremefarvet skum. Den er brygget af flere ristede malttyper, og så er den lagret på egetræ, hvilket bidrager til dens kraftige krop. Imperial Stouten har en stærk, stigende eftersmag af kaffe, bitter chokolade og vanille. Andvendes til vildt, stærk ost eller chokoladedesserter, eller alene i et cognacglas foran den knitrende pejs.

English: Imperial Stout is a dark and rich beer with a beautiful dark cream coloured head. It’s brewed from several types of roast malts and conditioned on oak, which adds to the heavy body. The Imperial Stout has a strong and growing aftertaste of coffee, bitter chocolate and vanilla. Suited for game, strong cheeses and chocolate desserts. Or may be enjoyed alone in a cognac snifter in front of the fireplace.

Written rating from Copenhagen Beerfest. Pours a nearly opaque black with a big beige head that lasts forever. The aroma is heavy with roasted malt, chocolate and lactic notes. Light aroma is floral hops. A bit sweet up front with lactic notes and a hint of espresso beans. The finish is heavy and rich with a thick mouthfeel and lingering alcohol presence. A great Imperial Stout.

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark brown with a huge lasting fluffy light-brown head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, leafy hops and chocolate followed by some lactic notes, light sugary sweetness and a hint of coffee. Flavour follows the aroma along with some alcohol that is present but is fairly well hidden considering the abv. Long moderate bitter finish. Almost creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Really good.

pours hazy medium dark brown with a small reviving and creamy beige cap, nice lacing. lightly smoked burnt caramel, smooth and tasty oak, hint of balsamic vinegar - never on the sour nor tart side, english toffee, licorice and other spices. light carbonation, medium to full body - oily and a bit a sticky, semi-sweet, lightly smoked, spicy and woodsy finish. very solid!

The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee and dried fruits. The color is pitch black, no light is penetrating the glass; excellent! The taste is full of chocolate, coffee and dried fruits. It feels silky on the tongue.The finish is long and smooth. A really good beer.

500ml bottle shared by Scott. A solid impy stout. Lighter and fruitier then most. Lacking roast intensity. An interesting stout.

bunget (573) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
500ml bottle. Started with a little gushing. Dark brown body, big chocolate head, some sediment. Aroma of mineral water, licorice, blackberries, toast and a touch of spices. Taste a moderate burned toast upfront, washed away immediately by a wave of caramel sweetness, licorice, cocoa liquor, a touch of herbal bitterness in the backstage, a little woodsy. Nice one.

McWorta (662) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 16, 2014
Mahagony brown with ruby red influences and a fading tan head. On the nose aromas of roasted toffee caramelised malts arise giving way to some light woody notes enhanced by some noticeable vanilla notes. The texture is softly carbonated and medium bodied surprising you for 9.5%. Offers some sweetnes with light bitter roasted aromas all pretty well balanced! The finish is ligtly slick and lasting pleasantly! Enjoyable!!!
