Thanks to Jacob and Morten at Amager Bryghus for opening this one.
Black with a nice brown head. Roasted flavours of coffee and toffee mingles with the smoky sweet aroma of the whisky barrels and a whiff of hops. On the palate the roasted flavours are still there - this IS an Imperial Stout - but the mouthfeel is much more mellow and smooth than the ordinary Imperial Stout from Amager (which is anything but ordinary...). It finishes off sweet but not in a sugary kind of way - the aromas are sweet; vanilla and a hint of whisky (apricots, candied oranges, heather and smoke), but the mouthfeel is fairly dry. For a beer this size it has amazing drinkability. A great beer.
