COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 1092 bottles of 37,5 cl made.

Danish: En meget fyldig Russian Imperial Stout på 12% alk. Den er brygget i oktober 2008 af 7 af de bedste bryggere i Danmark, som en blanding af de 7 bryggeres egne opskrifter af øllen. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret 7 måneder på portvins fade fra vores venner i Niepoort. Resultatet er en meget fyldig øl, præget af portvinens sødme. Både duft og smag er domineret af druer, portvin, kaffe, chokolade og ristet lakrids. Kroppen opleves silkeblød, medium sød, og der følger en varm, lang eftersmag.

English: Seven Niepoort Barrel is a very rich imperial stout, brewed in October 2008 by 7 of the best brewers in Denmark by a pooling of their individual recipes for the beer. After primary fermentation, this fraction of the brew was racked into a port wine barrel from our friends at Niepoort. After 7 (!) months in the barrel, the beer is intensely full bodied, with rich port like sweetness. The aroma and flavour is dominated by ripe grapes, port, coffee, chocolate and liquorice roast characters. Silky smooth and full palate with a medium sweet, warming and long aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2011 I got this at the brewery and took it to a local pub to share with the bartender who was feeding us beer. We walked in with it and things almost stood still, they couldn’t beleive we had this. This is apparently a highly regarded and hard to get great stout. They told me like five times to take it back with me but we cracked it anyway. Light sweet but lots of alcohol, nice wine notes here and there. Easy to drink.
