COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Gæstebryg af Christian Skovdal Andersen fra BeerHere, som har haft frie hænder til selv at definere en Skovlyst øl. Imperial Brown Ale er brygget med inspiration fra vinens verden hvor “blending” er en almindelig metode til at opnå et resultat, der overgår summen af de enkelte dele. En maltsød og vinøs brown ale, der efter et kort ophold i amerikanske bourbonfade, er opblandet i en lys, tør og kraftigt humlet ale.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2009
On tap. Clear amber golden with a small off-white head leaving laces. Fat, sweetish caramel in the nose combined with oily, citrusy hops. Quite full-bodied with sweetish caramel and fruit with intense and perfumy aroma hops that leave a surprisingly discreet bitterness. Liquid candy! 170509

Christian (11276) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2009
Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has caramel and malt, and distinct American citrus and pine hops. Sweetish, but hoppy and bitter flavour dangerously drinkable for a 9.5% beer.

Draught. Light brown body with a white head. Light roasty character with a good hoppy bite. Fruity aroma notes too. Flavour is very hoppy. Pine, passion fruit (from Nelson Sauvin hops?) peach and caramel. Creamy body. Barley wine? Wouldnt have guessed.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2009
On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. A clear, copper beer with a small, beige head. Citrusy, resiny hops, a dusty feeling and malty sweetness on the nose. Some alcohol and orange peel as well. Sugary flavor with lovely citrusy hops, some resin and a nice bitterness. A little alcohol warmth too. Full-bodied and warming. The finish is mostly bitter. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but a nice beer it is. (090517)
