A. Le Coq & Co was established in 1807 in London. Production was transferred from London to Estonia (Tartu) at the beginning of the 20th century and it is still produced there today.

In 1912. A. Le Coq was chosen as the official supplier of the Russian emperors court, and Imperial Extra Double Stout, which was brewed in Tartu, became available throughout the empire.

We have launched A. Le Coq Imperial again to show respect for our old traditions. The Imperial range is for beer lovers with exquisite taste.

Imperial Ale is a top-fermented beer with a rich flavour bouquet. There is a perfect balance between the delicious bitter taste of hops and the sweetness of malt. The copper colour that characterises the best ales adds a respectability referring to its imperial past.

rok1024 (1273) - Maribor, - JUL 18, 2014
Clear amber appearance, medium head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet with some bitterness, decently rounded, but not outstanding. Average English Pale Ale style beer.

Janukustutajaks sobib, aga muidu priski ilmetu jook. Ei tegu ega ngu. Keisrile sellise lurri pakkumise eest oleks pead lendama hakanud.

Demens (415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 6, 2017
0,4l bottle. Clear copper colour with slowly shrinking but lasting white head. Aroma: Banana, flour with a soft funky tone, dominating yeast caracter. Taste: Sweet quite malty start (lots of bready, biscuit tone) with a tasty bitter/sour mouthfeel. Has a quite creamy texture. Light/medium body with soft carbonation. Short softly bitter (almond) finish.

nephirem (450) - CROATIA - APR 30, 2017
Bottle, 0.4l. Clear copper pour. Violent pour managed to produce a three finger soapy white head. Not much of a retention, diminishing quite quickly but leaving some decent lacing on the glass. Nose is malty sweet, grainy with traces of corn. Slightly herbal. Thin body, light and watery texture. Heavily carbonated, very prickly and aggressive. However, it makes it nicely refreshing. Taste and aroma pretty much the same as the nose, nothing to write home about here really. Malty, grainy, grassy. Touch of hops, earthy, slight acidity. Some moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall, nothing special. It works as a quick refreshment during a hot summer day. Drinkable.

phfyysik (1229) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2017
Pours amber with light white head. Aroma is malts, cat piss, cheese, cardboard, soy sauce. Taste is quite same - salty, cheesy, watery, some malt and grain notes. Not for me.

gorkogrlo (351) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 21, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Bottle. Light red, copper color with medium white head. Aroma of sweet candy, cardboard and grains. In flavor lemon, metal and grains. On sweet side. Dry finish. Also little bit of spicy notes in finish. Overall: not impressed but still drinkable and refreshing. Really basic with touch of macrobrewery character.

nimbleprop (8218) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2016
33cl bottle pours a mostly clear, dark gold with some sticky, white head. Big sugary nose, like an under fermented saison, honey, some muddled spice. Flavor is sweet, bubblegum, coriander, honey, mild cake. Sweet finish. Meh.
