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.

Draught. Pitch black coloured. Dense light brown head. Light sweet, light roasted and light fruity aroma. Quite smooth and pleasant, but a bit vague. Flavour is full of alcohol, has a fruity roastyness and some light caramel and liqourice notes. Medium bodied. Ends on a light roasted bitterness. Quite good one.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 On tap at the brewery: Amazing Imperial Stout. Enormeous amounts of roasted malts, coffee, chocolat and moccha. Mixed with fine Scottish whiskey in a excellent balance. All those who rated this on the bottle should re-rate I guess. I bought a couple of bottles as well. Hopefully they aren’t as disappointing as the others. Bottled, horizontal session: What a difference! The balance is gone, all the exploding mocca and whiskey are gone. What a pity. Leaves a complex but little unbalanced average beer without any resemblance to a Imperial Stout. Strange.
