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.

Psykling (16) - Copenhagen, - JUN 7, 2008
First few mouthfuls feels a bit too “scented”, vanilla-like, almost like bubblegum. A sugary attack, with a hoppy aromatic first impression. The sweetness is outweighed by malty, roasted fullness and a warm, alcoholic feel, which is what persists after the first 1/5 of the beer. The vanilla-sweetness reminds me of oak-aging. Very drinkable, as it is not too roasted or tobaccory – can be enjoyed almost too easily.

Very solid Imperial Stout. Full bodied, warming, plenty of maltiness, some coffee and alcohol. In no way a sublte beer.

Botlle. Pours black with light brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla fudge. Taste is sweet liquorice, coffee and oak wood. Aftertaste is a bit short, but has a hint of belgian ale like sweetness. Good beer, but a bit too sweet for drinking a whole bottle alone.

Pretty decent imperial Stout. Aroma of licorice and bitter chocolate. Mouth feel is a bit thin, but taste wise with strong roasted notes and hints of chocolate, coffee and licorice.
