COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En kulsort, overgæret, stærk øl som den russiske zar Katarina den Store elskede den. Hun var endda så glad for den, at hun importerede hele skibslæs fra England til sin residens i Skt. Petersborg. Øltypen hedder derfor også ”Imperial Russian Stout”. Smagen er præget af kraftige maltnuancer der giver indtryk af mørke frugter, kaffe, tjære, ristet brød og kakao. Bitterheden er udpræget og stammer i vores tilfælde bl.a. fra den amerikanske humlesort ”Centennial”.
I fordums tid samledes familien gerne til fællessang. Salmerne blev sjunget til faderens virtuose spil på trædeorglet så det må have været en sand lyst at overvære. Hans ihærdige bearbejdning af det melodiøse møbel må imidlertid have fremkaldt visse associationer hos den nære familie og ført til den kærlige betegnelse ”salmecykel” – hvilket kun den kyniske sjæl kan behæfte med sarkasme. Vores Imperial Stout er brygget ganske i samme ånd: Et ordentligt møbel med solid og mørk maltbasis og ikke for lidt humle på ”tangenterne”. Smagen udgøres derfor af sød lakrids, alkohol og tjære, som igen balancerer med en markant humlebitterhed. Og med sine 9,5 % vol. kaster den i øvrigt sikkert ingen smuds på salmecyklisternes kaste.

CBF09 from tab. Small beige head that mostly lasted. Black color. Aroma of liquorish roasted malt, alcohol, mild dark fruity notes and a hint of floral bitterness as well. Quite full bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet and light bitter flavor. Lingering roasted malty finish.

500. Thanks, Maria! Pours jet black with a luscious, creamy mousse of dark tan head. Big sweet milk chocolate nose with plenty of roast and dark fruit showing, but only in support of the milk chocolate. Very creamy and nearly flat body, curiously light due to the abence of carb. Going to write that off to the fact that this is a hand-bottle. Roast, milk chocolate, malt sugar, and light campfire ash showing on the mid-palate. Understated ashy finish. Very nice, very drinkable. Good stuff.

Bottle. It’s a gorgeous looking beer, black as can be, with nice lacings left as the finger-thick tan head is lowered in the glass. Roasted, coffee-ish nose, mocha, with some licorice as well. The flavor is sweet and roasted, with coffee, mocha and notes of licorice. Warming, full-bodied and sweetish in the mouth, finishing warm, roasted and coffee-ish, and with a nice hoppy bitterness. A wonderful Imperial Stout, just lovely! (090522)

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2009
From tap@Københavnske Øldage 2009. Dark brown to near black colored body. Low tan head. Rich fruity aroma, surprisingly fruity for the style. Dark dried fruits and plum marmelade. Also a pleasant malt scent with a fine roastedness and and notes of choclate and bitter coffee. Full-flavored; lots of dark, generously roasted malts, dark fruits again, and a bold fruity hop bitterness in the backbone. Near full-bodied and very easy to drink. Soft, creamy mouthfeel. Well-crafted, fresh and complex with high drinkability. Very nice.
