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.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Tap @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours utterly opaque black. Impossible to see through. A great, creamy beige, staying head on top. Aroma is sweet, lots of wood, toffee, port, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate and light liqourice. Super creamy mouthfeel, soooo velvety. Sweetish flavour with lots of roasted malts, port character, chocolate, oak and some super-elegant blueberry notes in the background. This is so elegantly balanced. Lots of power, but still the 12 % is so well hidden. Easily the best beer of the festival! Make more, Nørrebro!

The taste is sweet with a lot of (roasted) malts with chocolate, oak some fruitiness, some vanilla and some wine. Lingering maltiness of dark chocolate malts. Perfect balance and complexity. WOW!

Pinball (11940) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 pitch dark, smooth dark brown head. aroma is roasted grains, licorice, faint dark fruits, blended stuff. flavor is licorice, roasted stuff, ends roasted and aftertaset lingers forever. this is one of the got-to-try beers out there, so hurry! won’t last for long. sampled at mikkeller bar about 2011 was oxidized, but okay. sampled once more about late 2011 was as good as original. sampled 2012-8-4- better than the original, aging has mellowed things, wood and barrel is a little bit more in front, so totally balanced, looks and smells like a fresh brew, re-rate to the level the beer has gone to after aging.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2010
Black with a beautiful brown head. Strong aromas of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, port and coffee. The flavour is primarily sweet with a nice long bitter end - the alcohol is present, but not overly so. The texture is fat and oily with a FULL body. It reminds me a bit of my dear beloved oak aged yeti, and it is one of the best imperial stouts I have ever tasted.
