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.

Har en meget stor og intens smag, er meget sød i de. Midtfyn mener selv at den skal nydes foran pejsen. Tjo... nu mangler jeg bare pejsen

DraftDodger (932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2016
Copenhagen 18/4 2016. 50 cl bottle from Fakta. Two swords and a crown to give it the imperial look. Pours opaque very dark brown with small beige head. Head disappears fairly fast leaving patches of foam. Aroma is pretty intense. Quite sweet and sugary with some bitter coffee and a little boozy alcohol. Soft carbonation and thick creamy and oily palate. Flavor is rich and quite sweet. Bitter coffee notes. Sweet aftertaste. A bit on the sweet side but a fine intense stout.
