Chocolate truffles, cocoa, espresso coffee, burnt currants, the sweetness of a sherry - all come to mind when enjoying an Imperial Stout. A rich porter of English origin brewed to withstand the long voyage from London to Czarist Russia. The classic "Winter Warmer". Big, Strong, Malty Stout.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle from Boxbeers, thanks Jan for sharing. Thick, light beige, creamy head over a very dark chestnut brown beer with ruby hue but in general appearance very close to ink black. Pleasant aroma of bitter chocolate, dried banana, burnt wood, coffee grounds, wet hay, bayleaf, beef stock, black tea, haemoglobin iron, dry autumn leaves. Meaty and beefy, almost porcini-like umami flavours in onset paired with a restrained candied cherry sweetishness and a basic, light sourishness, soft carbo fit for the style. Oily, slick mouthfeel, a bit thinner than expected but providing enough structure and hauling from a rich, nutty and chocolatey maltiness with a ’natural’ iron touch, roasted in the end but not outspokenly coffeeish, some peppery hops adding further drought along with a dash of bourbon-like alcohol which otherwise remains well hidden for a beer of this strength. Well balanced ’basic’ example of the style, very enjoyable.

Bottle. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is cocoa and rich chocolate, sweet and a little roasty, some coffee and creaminess. Taste is sweet for an imperial stout, but not cloying, some nice chocolate and coffee notes, again a little creamy. Low carbonation, a little thin but still very flavourful. Almost feels like it's on nitro.
