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 %

Bottle into tulip glass, The Friday imperial stout tasting, summer 2005. Second beer of the night. Looks kind of dead and unappealing, not much head or action. Caramel on the nose, with a bit of banana. The flavor is also banana and pale coffee, and a malty flavor reminiscent of dirty laundry. Carbonation is prickly but not overdone. A soft sweetness slides over the dominant flavors, and the alcohol is noticeable but not detracting. Solid, not great.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 10, 2006
Bottle(s). Had a new one - vintage 2005 - and an old one - best before 2005. The new one: More hoppy and not as powerfull a taste of dark dried fruits. The old one: More round and soft and is very good for drinking with desserts.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2006
Nice dark black pour...mid-sized light tan head. Big roasty nose...great choco notes. Even bigger burnt roasty flavor...more bitter than I thought it would be---good hop edge. Medium bodied and smooth. I’m not getting the 9%, but that’s fine....a nice impy.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2006
Poured dark black with a generous creamy head. Aroma was of chocolate liqueur, licorice, and also (unfortunately) a bit of medicinal alcohol. Pretty good balance in the flavour, with the roasted bitterness complemented by some smooth sweetness. Quite a full and lasting palate. If only there were more like this available locally.

Christian (12207) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2006
Very dark brown with a light brown medium sized head. Rich aroma of coffee, dried fruits, licorice and port. The flavour fills the mouth immediately, slightly sweet, burned, bitter and full with a hint of alcohol. Lasting, bitter aftertaste.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2006
Øl (33 cl) købt på arbejdet for 25 kr. Øllen er sort-rød men klar. Har en dejlig smag af chokolade, kafffe, lakrids og frugt og en anelse brændt. Eftersmagen er lang og god. Skummet er flot cremet brunt, og holder rimeligt. Skummet smager i sig selv fantastisk, og efter det er faldet, læggr det stadig en brun kandt rundt i glasset. Duften er lge så god som smagen. Alcohollen mærker man overhovedet ikke og kulsyreniveauet er perfekt. Absolut en anbefalelsesværdig øl.

highlandlad (1453) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2006
This Swedish imperial stout was sampled as part of a spectacular run of great beers at a gathering, so if anything, I may be under-rating it. It was black, with a fat head that laced beautifully. The aroma had some tart, luscious cherry fruitiness but also a disconcerting grout-like chemical note and some nail varnish phenols. Thick and creamy in the mouth, softly carbonated. Charcoal and licorice were predominant, with sticky cherries again, but also that weird grout chemical note. Very sweet and sticky, but not half bad. (Duff homecoming gathering)
