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.

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)

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.

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!

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.

Courtesy of Thelonius, thanks Jan for this wonderful hand bottled beer. I love the name :) It is pitch black and the head is dark brown and creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, light smoke, licorice, dark fruits and hints of tar. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, light smoke, dark fruits, licorice, light hints of tar and the finish is dry and roasted with hints of plums. It is a very delicious Impy!

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2009
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
