COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2014
Deep dark foxy red-amber beer pours viscously to medium, rather thick russet-brown head. Sweet, burnt malts, and a minty, fresh hoparoma, perfumy; dark chocolate; Bitter, hoppy, metallic, resin, roasted. Again this soapy, perfumy streak. More pine in the finish, with bitter chocolate, crème brulée. Warming up, roasty nuts, again metallic tainted; Long lasting bitterness, Always a tad metallic over the roastiness. Well-bodied, very slick to oily. Bit strange stout, as if something else was envisaged first.

humlelala (881) - DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
(65 cl bottle from Bryggens Ølbar; No visible BBD) Pours black with little tan head that quickly recedes to remain as film and lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of coffee, dark bread and a hint of alcohol. Quite full-bodied on the palate, softly carbonated with oily texture and a dark, protracted warming finish. Flavour has some sweetness but it’s balanced well by the roasted malt bitterness and the alcohol.
