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 %

Thanks Secret Santa Jonas ;-) for this awesome brew, I must have been very nice this year as it was on my wishlist. Opaque colored, small fast diminishing off white head. Nice round coffee and chocolate nose. Smoked in the beginning, chocolate nibs and intense blackberry taste. Reminds on walking through a basement filled with coal eggs - not in an disgusting way. Nice tabacco aftertaste. Silky texture - great balance all in all. I*m quite attracted to the fact that is is not that thick - yummie.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 Medium tan head doesn’t last. Nearly opaque black body goes dark brown at edges with floaties and carbonation. Roasty coffee and toffee aroma with earthy licorice notes. Dry-sweet earthy chocolatey taste with funky, faintly acidic notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel with faint heat. Dry funky earthy chocolate aftertaste with coffee and earth notes. Some alcohol, too, and a kind of strawberry chewing gum character. Quite nice and well made. Harmonic and drinkable. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Black with off-white head. The aroma is big and has notes from chocolate and tar. Litte sweet. The tase is dry and little bitter (3,6). RE-RATE: This time I find more in this almoust perfect brew. There is plums, vanilla and chocolate in this on. The flavor is also little winous I think and very complex. Toptop...

(Bottle at Fynske Øldage) Rich, chocolate aroma. Heavy, soft mouthfeel. Sweet flavor. Too sweet maybe. But style-true.

Ughsmash (7352) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Bottle thanks to sk8viking once again! BB 9/05. As Buck put it, the pour is deep ruby in light.. and had a solid 1/2" well-retained tan head... wonderful lacing. Aroma was chock fulla roasty coffee and dark chocolate.. as well as lighter caramel and just a hint of dark fruit. Flavor had a bitter roastiness from lips through the medium-length finish. Chocolate, coffee, and licorice provided much of the body... and some alcohol and a caramelly sweetness were evident on the finish. Very good impy.. and the flavors really popped as this wamed toward room temp.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Bottle: Clear brown, shining a dark ruby when held to the light, with a lasting tan head showing some excellent lacing. The aroma is artificial chocolate, yeast, and grape skins. Taste is chocolate, grape skins, licorice, peppery alochol, apples, and some fruit. Medium bodied, chaulky on the palate.

This is one of those beers that if you remind yourself that this is a European stout, you can get into; if you dwell too much on the American examples you’ll end up shortchanging this beer. Red on brown with a head that leans more to the white than off-white, which is curious for an Imperial Stout (by American standards at least). A layer of tea amid the roasted dimensions and grape edges. Easy drinking, and a bit thin if you’re picky, but satisfying nonetheless.
