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.

Beer4000 (4577) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2009
Handbottled, Courtesy by Yngwie (thanx a lot). Dark brown, close to black body with a thin but surprisingly firm brown head. Aroma is WOW – roasted malt, liquorices and chocolate. Really promising. Flavor is sweet and nicely roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and hops. Rich body and a fine sweet aftertaste. This is world wide class beer!

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2009
Tap @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours pitch black with a great, creamy, beige head. Aroma is dry, roasted, some raisins, dark chocolate. Highish carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, roasted, lots of dark chocolate. Long, lingering dryness. Really nice and very well balanced. Proof that a great Imperial Stout doesn’t have to be 15%+ ABV.

Defreni (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2009
Fad: Sort med et lille mørkebrunt skumhoved. Kraftig brændt smag, ikke så megen duft men en kraftig bitter eftersmag. Ikke så nuanceret mere rå muskelmasse. Men det har også sin ret.
