Fourth in our series this is Dan’s "Unplugged Imperial Stout". This beer is handcrafted for you with the same care that English brewers used when the brewed Imperial Stouts for the Russian Royal Family. This is a strong beer brewed with lots of black barley. Back home that makes this beer an excellent candidate for laying down in your beer cellars.

Very dark and rich with a brown head and significant carbonation. Mild overtones of coffee adn molasses witih a thinner body than most Imperial stouts. Finishes crisp and refershing

My 900th rating. Pours a rich oily black with a thick light brown head. Mild, semi-sweet and roasted malt aroma and some hints of dark fruits. Body has good thickness and mild sweetness. It doesn't quite have the balance to be a great imperial stout, but the finish is a smooth warming mix of caramel, coffee, and dark chocolate. It's a little young and should improve with some age. Glad to see New Glarus finally make an imperial stout.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2004 Pure black body under a very thick brown head that survives for a surprisingly short time. Aroma consists of a gentle coffee-roastiness with a piney quality. Flavor and mouthfeel is where this beer really shines, however. In the initial flavor I've got brown sugar and some dark fruitiness, with a pleasant bitter aftertaste, just enough to encourage another sip. Feels nice and silky while sipping, too. This certainly isn't as eXtreme as other imperial stouts on the market, but it certainly isn't any less enjoyable.

Very dark brown color, near opaque. Tall, small bubbled, light tan head. Sweet dark roasted malts, chocolate, and hints of molasses in the aroma. Light oily feel. The commercial description does nail this one. Thinner flavors of tar, dark coffee, heavy dark fruit and alcohol. A real linger of black malt. This one does need to breath and warm to be appreciated. Dark fruit and mild coffee come out in the aroma. Warming as it warms. Another one I will sit for awhile to let it develop.
