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.

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 (572) - 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 (660) - 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!!!

thorongil2 (1390) - , Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
(bottle) dark brown colour with a tall brown head; aroma starts with alcohol and smoked fruit, then roast; simple flavour with alcohol being the prominent feature - this is the worst imperial stout I have ever had and the first ever that I was not able to even finish - very disappointing

Listigovers (365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, slight fruit. Dark brown with tan head. Thick and rich, long aftertaste, dark chocolate, slightly oily in the mouth, some heat but overall quite smooth. Very nice.

probstblueribbon (3057) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep mahogany with a decent tan head. Aroma: Weak...some nice maltiness but not dark enough, more Porter than Impy Stout, acetaldehyde, caramel and deep melanoidin, meh. Palate: Medium+ body with moderate+ carbonation. Flav.: Like the nose, chocolate and melanoidin, lacks the deep, dark maltiness of an imperial stout, acetaldehyde is far too noticeable, not good; sweet with decent bitterness, some astringency and fair bitterness with a reasonable roasted character, though lacking and with some acetaldehyde.
