Slottskällans Imperial Stout (SIS) är ett opastöriserat, överjäst, mycket mörkt öl av gammaldags brittisk typ. Stilen föddes under 1700-talet när porter exporterades till Katarina den Storas hov i Ryssland. För att ölet skulle klara resan gjordes det extra kraftfullt och alkoholrikt. Idag lever öltypen ett tämligen undanskymt liv, men många brittiska bryggerier med självaktning ser det som en självklarhet att erbjuda en Imperial Stout som prestigeprodukt och flaggskepp.

Marstonlad (390) - Helsinki, - MAY 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 A black color and a little white head. Aroma has roasty and chocolaty elements with light smokiness and licorice. Taste is sweet, malty and roasty. Licorice and chocolate are the prominent flavours, also some light fruity notes. The finish comes a bit too soon; stronger hoppiness would have added depth and balance to the taste. Full body, flat. This Imperial Stout had a nice malty character but lacked a little hoppiness, in my opinion.

Cool_Bond (1217) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
Wonderful aroma of dark malt. The taste is of raisins, dark chocolate, dark coffee and soy sauce. Bitterness to the aftertaste is okay but not much more. Fills the mouth well and for a long while. I think it feels like something made ​​in this beer only. Vintage 2013. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

rouhlas (73) - GREECE - JUN 20, 2014
330ml bottle of 2011 at home. Dark brown color with small beige head. Aroma is light malty, caramel, dried fruits, light chocolate scent and some alcohol. Taste begins light malty sweet it becomes salty and it finishes more bitter. Light to medium body, with oily feel and average carbonation. This doesnt remind me an Imperial Stout, it’s more like something between a brown ale, a light barley wine and a schwarzbier! It tasted more like an Imperial Stout the first time I had it on tap at 3 Sma Rum in 2012.

StoutHead (603) - DENMARK - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle - 2013 edition. Pours almost black with a reddish tint and a medium sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts, dark fruits, spices and a bit of hops. Pours a bit watery but has an okay full-ish body. Medium carbonation. Long malted and chocolate-y aftertaste with a bitter finish.

Lawger (81) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours a thick black with slight head. Gutsy aroma of roasted malts, dark toffee, coffee and morels. Palate is balanced with very light bitterness, quite deep, medium bodied and semi-sweet flavour. Rather short finish.

Good, quite sweet and gentle imperial stout. Maybe not as good as I expected after all this hype around this beer, or maybe this 2013 version just wasn’t as good as the previous ones.
