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.

Hand bottle 50 cl. Pours a completely opaque black with a dense, light brown head. Fresh and lightly perfumy hop aroma, while the hard roasted malts are surprisingly downplayed. The mouthfeel is almost velvety smooth. Good and solid body dominated by tje hard roasted malt accents with a pruny accent. Burned malt finish with the warming alcohol shining through. Lovely! And great to see what brewer Jan Paul is capable off when let a little loose. 210309

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2009
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)
