COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
WinterCoat's Imperial IPA is light amber in color. The fruitiness from the ale yeast combines beautifully with the body of the malts and the feshness of the bops to create a very well-balanced, though very heavily hopped brew. Double Hop has a heady hop aroma without too much bitterness. The smooth taste belies its 8.5% alcohol content. This beer is dangerously pleasant to drink!

Sigmund (5801) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2005
Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen. Hazy brown colour. Oak, raisins, rye bread and caramel in the aroma. Flavour is moderately oaky with raisins, fairly sweet (too sweet?), decent hops.

TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 Draught @Plan B
Nut brown, not much head. Mild yeasty hoppy nose. Toffeeish palate with leather and horseplanket. Flat, some unfermented sugar there. Oily, a bit hoppy - yeasty aftertatse. I wonder they had a right keg in Plan B :) (4/3/5/2/10 2.4).
Re-rated, big bottle 8.2%. Orange hazy color, small white head. Aroma of horseplanket and leather. Leathery, fruity - lambic-like slightly sour flavor. Carbonated, Champagne-like mouthfeel. (6/3/7/3/12 3.1)

Grassy and piney aroma. Green amber, cloudy, tanned head. Grassy, a little bit smoky. Good wellmalted body. Skidegodt Nils Jørn.

Hazy amber color; medium-sized head. Strangely the aroma shows not only hops, but also some sweat and cheese rind (tomme). Good body strength; sweetish caramel and toffee flavor; again there is a strong cheesy yeast preence; the hops are quite fruity too; the final is well balanced, but also a bit dusty. Enjoyable, but peculiar.

2008-02-18, cask conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus, 7-4-8-4-15=38
Hazy golden color. It has a very nice hoppy aroma, citrusy and grassy. Good body strength, round mouthfeel, with malt flavor and strong bitterness, quite aromatic; for this strong beer the (almost complete) lack of carbonation is a detriment. The final is good, balanced, but could bite more. Very good, but I’m sure Wintercoat can do better of it.

2005-05-20, draught, 8.4% ABV, 7-4-8-5-15=39
Hazy blond color. The aroma is not very strong, but very nice, malty hoppy and a bit fruity. The taste is full malty, with a good amount of hopping, fudge impression, good aromatic, ends almost like fudges.

@ DBF 2005 Spring and hopsy flower come sparkling up as the aroma. Rich golden body. Taste is hopsy and a delicious bitterness.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Cask at DBF2005. The nose is dominated by loads of flowery hops, delicious! Golden colored body, medium fluffy head. Flavor of sweet malts backed up by a shitload of hops, very nice bitterness. Not as extreme as many IIPA’s, but very nice.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2005
Dark golden, small dissapearing head. Floral bitter hop aroma, hints of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Flavour starts sweet of oranges and kiwi. Strong grapefruity bitter finish.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Tap, brew pub. Bartender told me it was not an IPA? Howeer, it is bitter and aromatic. Citrus aroma dominates. Some alcohol present in the finish. Could take some more hops.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2005
On tap at "Plan B", Copenhagen. Very hoppy IPA-like nose. The flavour is surprisingly malty and somewhat sweet before the nicely bitter and hoppy finish. Pleasant and the alcohol is practically undetectable.
