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.

Bottle shared at Scopey’s 10K, many thanks to Leighton. Black with a small bubbly tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, redcurrant, port and booze. Nice. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is dark chocolate, meaty, molasses, pretty dry into the finish. A bit more meaty and oxidised than the red wine version. But great nonetheless.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2014
Flaske, 375 ml, lagret i Gisles kælder siden 2009. Sort med brunlige kanter og et af alderen imponerende stort og meget holfbart beige skumhovede. Duger af figen-pure, brændt træ, svesker. Portvin. Alkohol. Mørke malte. Alder. Overvældende duft. Sødlig, lagret fed smag med masser af træ og noter henad mørke frugter konserveret i portvin. Men umiskendeligt stadig en god stout, der gemmer sig nedenunder.

375 ml bottle sample from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki head. The aroma and flavor have a wonderful mix of roasted malts, chocolate, black coffee, dark fruits, blackberry, grapes, plums with a sweetness from the port barrel. A strong oak component comes through. This is a complex imperial stout where the barrel has added to an already solid beer.
