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.

Habanero (2662) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2013
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and Vanilla. Sweet flavor that ends up with some bitterness and an alcohol bite. Medium to full bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A great impy.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
Pitch black. Soy sauce and dark fruit dominated aroma with heavy roasted malts and cold old coffe. Flavor is insanely heavy and sweet with roasted coffe notes barley balacning the sugary sweetness. Smooth bodied nice sipper indeed but more sugary and extreme than sophisticated and complex.

1-2 year aged bottle of this got busted out at a tasting years ago. I can’t remember specifics at this point except that the 5 or 6 of us that were there were rather impressed how all these different flavors somehow blended as well as they did. Definitely recommend aging it for at least a year or two.

Sample at CBC 2013, Saturday. Black with a creamy tan head. What a great beer this is! Incredible smooth and drinkable. Heavy but soft in the same time. Cocoa, vanilla, some coffee, roasted malt and syryp. Sweet but very, very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (11311) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session II. Pours oily black with a strong, brown foam cap. Lots of syrupy chocolate in the aroma, some vanilla. Hugely sweet flavor, lots of chocolate candies, burnt sugar, vanilla cream. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Syrupy. Moderately warming finish, tons of sticky dark sugars, more chocolate syrup. Rich, very, very, very sweet. Decadent stuff but getting through more than a few ounces would be a chore.

One hell of an Imperial Stout on tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade. THe pour is a completely opaque black with a dark tan or brown head floating atop creamy and dense. The aroma is outstanding and almost too intense with big alcohol whiffs and a huge coffee and espresso aroma. The flavour has a hint of brown sugar sweetness with a bit of dark chocolate flavours before the intense roast and robust roasted espresso beans take over towards the finish. This is an intense beer with an awesome coffee flavour but despite that, the mouthfeel is silken smooth and creamy. This is a pure delight!
