COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
4/4 of the experimental X series presented by Mikkeller at Københavnske Øldage 2006. X Imperial Stout is strongest beer ever brewed by a danish brewery. It’s a killer..... brewed with 11 different malts, 3 sugars, 6 hop types and 3 different yeast strains.

brnandersen (2027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013
Sample from tap, CBC 2013. Pitch black with a creamy, tan head. Sweet aroma with rich roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, licorice, brown sugar and bread. Hints of tar and soy sauce. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body, thick feel. Finishes heavy sweet and roasted with coffee, alcohol and fat, creamy milk chocolate. This beer is so thick, so vulgar and rich it´s almost unbearable. Glad I only had a sample... Excellent experience.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 Tap @ CBC 2013. Pours black with a creamy head. Roast, prune, raisin and sugars. Massive cocoa powder as well. Dry and bitter. Warming.. quite hot actually. Too young and not anywhere near the ratings people are giving.

hirigalzkar (2358) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2013
Sample @ CBC. Pours black with a beige head. Very nice and sweet aroma with notes of vanilla, powdersugar, toasted marshmallows chocolate and a small touch of coffee. Taste is sweet ans has got a vinous quality. Notes of Oboy, muscavadosugar and toasted marshmallows. Well made. Taste is maybe a little too sweet... but hey! It’s a great beer.
