Viborg Imperial Stout brewed in the English style like those that were originally exported to the Russian market. The stout we brew here at Viborg bryghus is black, full. We use round handed amounts of peat smoked malt and English licorice. The full flavor and the high alcohol make this a beer for gents and real stout enthusiasts. It’s hand brewed by the use of a gas kettle and open fire, and provides the pronounced caramel flavor. Top fermented and cellared in 4 weeks. We recommend it to accompany lamb, ox, sausages and dark chocolate.

Disappating light brown rim on a clear deep brown body. Milky roasted, dark dried fruits and port in the aroma. Sweet, roasted and fruity with an alcoholic warmth. Flatish and dry with umami in the finish.

gunnar (5906) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2011
Bottle provided by Sigmund, thanks. Pours almost pitch black with a very small tanned head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, liquorice and a small whiff of smoke. Taste is moderate sweet light roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, and that lovely weak smoked thing is also noticeable, also some umami and salty stuff. Sticky mouthfeel, splendid beer.

Sigmund (5449) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2011
500 ml bottle, batch 22, from Voldby Købmandsgård. ABV is 8.0%. Pitch black colour, big to moderate tan head. Moderate but nice aroma of roasted malts, notes of coffee, hints of liquorice and smoke. Full and rich mouthfeel. The flavour is fairly sweet and malty, roasty notes of course, some caramel, tar, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and smoke again - but not quite as much peat smoke as expected, and that’s quite alright with me. A lovely drop!
