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.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Papsoe. Aroma is smoke and sourfruits. Not very appealing. It pours dark brown but settles black/brown and holds a diminishing, thumb thick, tan head. Very smoky and plastic tasting fore. This is followed by stewed vegetable flavors, tartness and detergent flavors. This is truly awful tasting. The mouthfeel is thinnish for the style, but not incredibly so. It is however one of the worst tasting beers I’ve had in recent memory.
