COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Tjoxen (167) - SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2012
Pours dark copper with tanned head. Aroma of roasted malt, some vanilla and leather. Sweet taste of roasted malt, vanilla and ripe fruits. Feels a bit thick with soft carbonation. The finish is medium bitter. I think its a good brown ale and the alcohol feels well hidden even if you feel it in the finish.

Frovigalning (2930) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle as a sample from the brewery. A bit weird and funky smell with ripe fruit. Better taste with vanilla, ripe fruit and a certain spiciness together with some caramel malt. I also get an aroma that reminds me of whole vanilla fruits. I find it hard to rate this, maybe it will improve after some time in storage.

Ktwse (1910) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2012
Pours brownish amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma is roasty, brown sugar, hints of vanilla and toffee, earth and maybe a hint of leather. Taste is sweet with caramel malt, sugar, vanilla and a long alcohol finish. Body is thick and creamy with a fair bit of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear brown amber with a small tanned head leaving small laces. Aroma is yeasty malty toasted spicy odd no vanilla at all. Flavor is sweet caramel malty boozy nutty bitter slightly fruity. Not good I’m afraid.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle (SBWF2012)
Smells of bins and rotting vegetables as much as anything else. Alcohol comes over immediately at the back of the mouth and up the nose. Messy. Nope.

tiong (3683) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Draught @ SBWF’12

Pours dark reddish brown with a foamy head. Aroma of vanilla, spices, some caramely malts and chocolate. Taste is malty and spicy with a lot of vanilla and caramely notes. Finish is warming and smooth with some vanilla notes. Okay, a bit unbalanced.

gyllenbock (4456) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Clear dark amber with a small head. Sweet with malt, alcohol, fruit and vanilla. Bland and sprawling. Not my cup of tea.
