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.

Pours absolutely black with firm bubbly beige head. Smoked and malty aroma - some rye bread in there as well. Quite smoked with a rather thin mouthfeel. Apart from smokyness, there is some roasted flavours and a little coffee.

Ungstrup (29957) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
An opaque black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate, while the flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of alcohol mixing in with the chocolate.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
Bottled. 8.4%. Black coloured. Nice aroma with plenty of smokiness. However, the smokiness does not seem like it is from smoke malt, but rather from an infection. The same goes for the flavour. It seems promising, but hopefully they will get more contol of their brews.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Tap at the brewhouse. Black with dense brown head. Thick! Malt and english liqourice dominant, whiff of smoke, delisciously hopped (american hops?), relatively low alcohol profile compared to 10.5% abv. A well balanced and very good imperial stout - the best danish one Ive had so far. Bottle; not as good as the tap version - head formation and mouthfeel noteably worsened, aroma and flavor still very agreeable but somehow not as balanced. Same beer?, different batch? (3,6)
