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.

Pours dark brown to black fluffy tan head. Smells of coffee dark fruit and sweet bready malt. Taste of strong black coffee, licorice and chocolate. Well balanced. The finish is warming but not harsh, could definitely stand up to some age.

robinvboyer (3128) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Jet black pour, medium beige head. Dark, toasted almost charred malts, dark fruit, currants and some cocoa nibs. Carb is light and the body is a little thinner than i expected. Finish is very bitter with sharp bitter cocoa notes, and a burnt coffee, with hints of woody vanilla finish.

Papillon (379) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
500 mL Bottle. Dark brown body with a tenacious frothy tan head leaving ribs on the glass. Aroma of toasted malts, prunes, black mission figs, raisins, hints of coffee, cocoa, and vanilla. This is a very heavy bodied high octane beer bursting with flavors of toasted malts, dark dried fruits, bitter cocoa, vanilla, and black coffee. Alcohol declares itself first in the aftertaste thus warning the beer drinker to "go easy", then black coffee, cocoa, and black mission figs team up, and then off to a carob and bitter dark chocolate finish with a "tail" of vanilla. One gorgeous beer! I’ll bring some fine Belgian chocolates next time ;)

ERB92 (338) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak, dried fruits and roasted malts in the aroma. Almost back with a slight red tint, tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice Imperial Stout that have picked up some nice aromas and flavours from the oak conditioning.

500 mL bottle. Looks like an imperial stout. Smells like an imperial stout. Tastes like an imperial stout. Pretty textbook. A touch less roast than some, perhaps. Aroma is on the mild side. Well constructed.

500 mL bottle. Pours thick, opaque black with a huge off white head of foam that seems to have jello like stability. Laces wonderfully. Coffee, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, oak, vanilla and menthol-herbal earthiness. Full bodied, but much drier than many RIS I have had. Still has some sweetness, but it’s well cut by alcohol, hopping rates and oak. Creamy palate, finishes long and lingering like a good espresso. Nice.
