Plovmand (7186) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle. Very dark brown body with a medium light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Light fruity notes. The flavour is mainly roasted malt, some hops, light fruit and caramel. Bit thin for the style.

odgaard (382) - Skyum, Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2009
Dark brown with a beige disappearing head. Fine lacing. Aroma: Chocolate, roasted, tar, sugar. Taste: Bitter and roasted, some chocolate and liquorice. Oily texture. Pretty good beer. More tasty than the average Ørbæk beer.

jesperhammer (3734) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2009
27-DEC-2009, bottle @home, bought in Netto. Very dark brown, almost black with very nice high light brown head. Liqourice nose, with a slightly unclean aroma with some vegetables. Otherwise not very dark roasted. Very creamy, with quite high carbonation of small bubbles. We are considering the beers for the new years eve menu, and this could go well with the red meat from the Weber in the main course. Fine beer. Maybe not the most imperial of imperial stouts, but very easy drinking.

Defreni (2869) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2009
Flaske: Brunsort øl med et fint skumhoved. Klassisk engelsk stil. Meget lakrids i duften og kun en anelse brændte toner. Smagen er også domineret af lakrids, igen med meget lidt brændthed. Tynd mundfylde, men det kan man forvente med den forholdsvis lave alkoholprocent. Udmærket og drikbar øl.

Pinball (11706) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
50cl bottle from fakta. label redesigned, now says "Pingus", "Imperial Stout" and at the bottom of the label "ØKOLOGISK". the two birds in the middle, and the ørbæk red banner are the same. Beer is still 7% clear dark brown, smooth light borwn head, some lacing. mild aroma of licorice, roasted stuff, caramel, toffee, chocolate. flavor is english licorice, sweet caramel, sweet malts, roasted grains. towards the end it gets more roasted, and the far finish is with a little bit of charchoal. appears a bit thin for a 7% brew, but lots of flavor for an ørbæk. If i had never tasted stuff like mikkeller and yeti i’d think this was a fantastic beer ;-).

Cheeseman DELIVERS! Dark brown pour, tan head. Chocolate and fruit. Like an old style cadbury bar. Flavor? Much the same...caramel, toffee, molasses and some chocolate. Good beer.

TheCheeseMan come-th and he delivered. Thanks Dan! Pours dark brown with tan head. The aroma is bursting with rich dark fruitiness like boysenberries and dark grapes to go along with a touch of caramel and roast. The taste is much the same with rich dark fruitiness like ripe sugar coated cranberries, boysenberry jam and cherries mixing with a bit of molasses and roast. It yields a delicious combination of roasted malts and dark fruitiness seeming a bit like an old ale.

Thanks to Cheeseman. Pours dark brown. Fairly mild flavor with dark fruits, caramel and grain. Not bad.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2009
thanks to the man himself, cheeseman! overly underrated beer, not sure why. pours dark brown, thin white head with nice golden lacing with some floating sediments. aroma is grainy, chocolate with possible oat, roasted malts. taste, bready notes, chocolate malts, dark fruits; possibly dry fig / dates, touch of grassy hops. Definitely a European approach to Imp stout, and a very nice beer.
