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.

Holmen1 (4519) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
Mandag i annen på Cardinal okt-14, og vi er på oppløpssiden! Siste innspurt består av Kinn Tomasmesse og Mikkeller Black Gran Marnier Ed., så nå er det bare å stå distansen fullt ut. Moylans er en lekkerbisken som registrer på Richters skala. Brunsvart, og med flott lysebrunt skum. Aroma i lange baner: sjokolade, kaffe, varme rosiner. I den myke smaken sniker også noen sherrytoner seg inn. Dette er kraftkost for viltre krabater.

Dark rich pour with a nice dark foam. Chocolate & coffee smell. A nice full filling taste. Is a little thick and partly oily. Almost a hint if a black IPA it so hoppy.

"BIG, chewy goodness. They hit the nail on the head with this one. They do "big" beers well. This has all the attributes one looks for in an imperial stout, nothing bad. One of their best, but it doesn’t age as well as hoped. 4.1 bottle...4.3 tap."
