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 %

Marstonlad (579) - 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.

Pitch black color with beige foam. Sweet notes in the nose. Chocolate and sweet (cristal sugar sweetness) with very little coffee in the taste. Even some slight cassis fruit notes in there. Satisfying calm taste with a lot of diabetes potential in the aftertaste.

SinH4 (1089) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Black color with tan head. A bit yeasty, chocolaty (sweeter chocolate), vanilla, quite weird sweetness there. Not a classical ImpStout. More of a Porter?

anstei (323) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at SinH4?s Goodbye Event. Roasty aroma, but not that well defined and not so sweet. Taste is very sweet though, almost like a glacing. Not much else though.

arminjewell (8626) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee, anise, some Belgian yeast notes into a bit of vanilla, slight earthy notes as well. Taste was big anise and ashy, smoke into a bit of caramel, roast, some dark chocolate, finishing fairly roasted, slightly sweet.

2014 edition, 330ml bottle. Dark brown body with a huge tan head. Took ages to pour. Aromas of liquorice, soy, roasted malt and coffee. Flavor consists of roasted malt, nuts, coffee and some earthy notes. Feels a bit too young.

Pours dark brown, light for an imperial. My bottle was undercarbonated as well, almost flat. Not a flattering beer to hold up to the light with the dirty brown and almost no carbonation. Aroma is dark fruits and some chocolate, actually sort of an ESB smell to it with richer dark malts, not surprised to see that it was brewed with british hops. Taste once again seems like a juiced up ESB with chocolate. Can not say i hate it but it´s middle of the road at best. Bottle from SB.

nihtila (1734) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
15.11.2014. Aroma has salty liquorice, milk chocolate. Tastes sweetish liquorice, milk coffee, slight dark chocolate, roasted malts, hops, vanilla. No alco in taste. Rich, smooth. Sometimes this type of milky choco sweetish IS is just great.

Clear, very dark brown. Tiny offwhite head. Aroma has licorice, malt and alcohol. Malty flavour with licorice, raisins and warming alcohol. Long lasting, controlled bitterness and sligthly boozy finish.

Flaska. Lite källarkänsla fina fina doftaromer. Smaken mycket med olika nyanser. Känns väldigt lätt o frisk för att vara en Imperial stout. Eftersmaken är mycket bra o ligger som god matta i munnen om nu mattor kan ligga i munnen. Smuttaröl.
