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.

Nose is full of tobacco and toffee, very sweet. Flavor is a big more roasty with more coffee and caramel tones.

Rating 977, flaske fra SuperBest i Nakskov

En mørkebrun øl, med nikotingult luftigt skum. Duft at brændt malt, lidt lakrids, alkohol og humle. Smagen gentager disse elementer med lidt vanille og en del træ. Ikke en af de mest imponerende stouts, og en anelse ubalanceret.

tricksta_p (880) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, dried fruit, chocolate, oak, light vanilla, some liquorice. Flavour is roasty and sweet, liquorice, with a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Alcohol is hidden well. Smooth and well-balanced.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, medium to full sized quickly diminishing light brown head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, lightly roasted malts, some iron, moderately bitter, some chocolate, lightly earthy. Decent body, medium carbonation.

DutchDrebus (3791) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle @ benzai. Pitch black colour with a medium sized beige head. Smells liquorice, sweet, roasty, chocolate, liquoricewood. I dislike liquorice in beer. Tastes roasty, chocolate and coffee, but with loads of iron and some liquorice. Medium to full body, soft carbo, slightly silky feel.

vanelst (96) - AUSTRIA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Quite a dissapointment, this one.. Aroma is dark fruits, vanille, caramel, chocolate, hint of coffee. Taste is way too sweet for me, with hints of roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Not very complex at all and the sweetness ruins the balance. A touch of whiskey in the aftertaste saves this from being completely boring.

Very dark brown, stable tan head. Aroma has licorice and dried fruit. Flavour is similar with smooth alcohol. Nice, soft mouthfeel.

Brewhemia (15) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
I actually didn’t like this stout. I didn’t like the long bitterness it left i the mouth. Too much hops for an imperial stout too my taste. Not much aroma and dry palate.
