Denna serie presenteras i oktober varje år i samband med Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival. Idéen är att alltid brygga en begränsad mängd extrem öl enligt ett nytt recept varje gång. 2010 brygde vi en Imperial Stout, 2011 brygde vi en Imperial IPA och 2012 en Imperial Brown Ale med lätt karamellsötma, markerad efterbeska och en tydlig vaniljarom. Humlesorterna Pacific Gem och Super Alpha ger toner av citrongräs, svarta vinbär, tallbarr och örter

(Bottle). The aroma is musty with elements of sour smoke and horse stables. The same musty aromas is also in the taste which also has elements of black currants, sweet caramel, vanilla and acidic bitter alcohol. I love the taste of black currants but that taste in combination with vanilla does not work well! No, this is not my kind of beer!

beer_est_deus (1094) - örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Klar röd brun färg och ett litet lätt färgat skum. Doftar lätt syrligt, torkad frukt, sött mörkt bröd, alkohol och humle (lite som en ipa). Smakar alkohol, malt sötma, mera malt sötma, läder och något "nytt", antagligen något från vaniljen. Vanilj kommer lätt som en sen eftersmak. Way to sött och spritigt.

Svesse (7699) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 (Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 6 Oct 2012) Amber colour with brief, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, apricots, vanilla and honey. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, apricots, vanilla, honey, hints of oak wood and brown sugar in the finish. Almost full body, fairly sweet with a moderate bitterness. Well balanced and quite tasty. Nice one. (7/4//7/4/14=3.6) Rerate: (Bottle, 18 Dec 2013) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, rye bread, treacle toffee, caramel, black-currant and a whiff of alcohol. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, marmalade candy, rye bread, treacle toffee, black-currant, vanilla and a balanced herbal bitterness in a finish with a vinous touch of alcohol. Almost full body, fairly sweet. There’s some vanilla around, but most of it is hidden behind alcohol and a sugary sweetness. Not very well balanced, but interesting and quite nice.

fiulijn (18423) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
Hazy dark amber color, medium head. The aroma is a bit dusty, chocolate. Good body, sweetish flavor of malt, and luckily just little vanilla. Correct bitterness.
Not clear what the target was here.
