COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial stout är ett opastöriserat, överjäst och mycket mörkt öl av gammaldags brittisk typ. Stilen föddes under 1700-talet när porter exporterades till Katarinas den Stora hov i Ryssland. För att ölet skulle klara den långa resan gjordes det extra kraftfullt och alkoholstarkt. Smaken hos imperial stout är rik och komplex; där märks inslag av kaffe, mörk choklad, korinter och romrussin. Alko-holen skänker ölet rund, fyllig kropp och mjuk eldighet. Malten ger en hög sötma som balanseras av den beska och lite peppriga humlearomen.

Klassifikation: Imperial Stout

Användning: Det här är ett smakrikt öl med många användningsområden. Lätt kylt fungerar det utmärkt som sällskapsdryck, antingen helt solo eller tillsammans med mörk choklad. Rumstempererad passar imperial stout mycket bra ihop med en stark grönmögelost. När den serveras lite sval är den utmärkt i kombination med kraftig mat och rökta charketurier.

Innehåll: Fyra sorters malt: pilsner-, choklad- och svartmalt samt ljus karamellmalt.
Tre sorters humle: Northen brewer, Fuggle och East kent golding.

Alkoholhalt: 9 %

Pours black with a low tan head. Aroma is muscovado sugar, bourbon, caramel, figs, leather, vanilla. Taste is burnt sugar, bourbon, dates, caramel, vanilla. A bit sweet with not enough fullness but good all the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unde (405) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Black beer with smallish head. Aroma has roasted malts, dark chocolate, syrup, coffee and salty licorice. Taste starts with salty licorice, then some syrup and dark chocolate with an bitter hoppy and roasted malts in the end. Full body and pretty well carbonated for a Imperial Stout. Pretty decent.

Theydon_Bois (9629) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, thanks to an IP trade with Ronny (rlgk), 26/12/13, 2009 vintage. Light black with a thin light tan head that clears to nothing - not a handsome impy to look at! Nose is light smoke, dark roastings, treacle toffee, cocoa. Taste comprises dark toffee fudge, sweet tasting, earthy, chocolate, boozey twang. Medium bodied with bite, limited carbonation - pretty flat and lifeless, sweet closure with a little more booze creeping in. Low ranking for style, not a looker, no carbonation, lacks depth.

Erzengel (3332) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2013
Ich habe den Jahrgang 2008 getestet. Der Geruch ist alkoholisch-röstmalzig. Der Antrunk lässt schon die Stärke erkennen - sehr alkoholisch-stark mit typisch bockbieriger Süße. Im Hauptteil ist ein Bisschen das Röstmalz zu erahnen, wird aber von Schärfe und Süße überdeckt. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht schokoladig-espressoartig mit netten Röstmalzanklängen, aber immer noch alkoholisch-scharf und viel zu dickflüssig.
--> hätte es weniger %, dann wäre es bestimmt toll, aber diese alkoholische Schärfe ist vor allem im Zusammenhang mit der Süße und dem Röstmalz nicht gut. Man kann es leider nicht gut genießen - dazu ist es zu aufdringlich!

Ernest (6307) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2013
2013 bottle at Oliver Twist (BB May 2015). Head is initially small, soda-like, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), with notes of vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Dreadfully simple, surprisingly...only the most basic suspects in the nose, and syrupy sweet without much to balance in the mouth. Doesn’t look very appetizing either, with a flimsy, large-bubbled head that almost completely disappears. Quite disappointing.

IPAgutten79 (580) - Skui, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2013
Sort i utseendet, lite skum. Innbydende søtlig aroma av krydder, tørket frukt og sjokolade. Nydelig sjokoladebasert smak, hvor også sødmen dukker opp. Utpreget bitter, spesielt i avrundingen! Flott munnfølelelse, forskjellige smaker dukker opp ettersom man lar brygget vandre i munnen. Klasseøl!
