La Timpériale est une de ces stouts fortes qui étaient brassées en Angleterre au XIXème Siècle et exportées vers la baltique. La cour du Tsar devient vite frainde de ce style de bière, et lui a donc ensuite donné son nom. Dans cette bières les arômes fortement torréfiés sont très présents, mais soutenu par la force d’une bière à presque 11% d’alcool. Un houblonnage intense au final participe à l’équilibre du produit, et en fait une bière de dégustation de choix pour les fin de repas.

33 cL bottle, courtesy of Bov. Pours dark brown to black with a small, slight bubbly chocolate brown head. Aroma is wineous and roasted malt, light boozy alcohol presence too. Solid malty flavoured, wineous note and distinct alcohol presence and smoothness in mouthfeel. Lingering fruity and roasted barley malt dense flavoured finish. Nice one.

Ungstrup (38243) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma is sweet, but at the same time acidic - I’m thinking infection - but it might be the hard roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with acidic notes of lemon.

joergen (28964) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown coloured with a beige head. Light roasted aroma of dried fruits, overriped fruits and liquorice. Light acidic and roasted flavour of dried fruits and overriped fruits.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2009
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Opaque black with no head. Aroma is is quite sweet caramel malts along with toffee, alcohol and some slight burnt notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with licorice. Way too sweet flavours to be enjoyable.

omhper (25563) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottled, thanks Bov! Opaque very dark brown, very lively. The aroma has loads of licorice and a whiff of lemon. Very potent and malty with notes of coffee and plum brandy. There is some syrupy sweetness, but salt and tar dominates the finish. The alcohol is very evident.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours an unclear, muddy dark brown with a tiny, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity nose. Medium body with sweet notes of milk chocolate and then an extreme, citrusy sourness. Odd and completely inharmonious. Courtesy of Bov. 120207

Black color; the head is not persistent. Aroma of malt and roasted malt. Good body strength, thick enough, malty, strong liquorice and caramel, powerful; a hint of yeast; good taste.
Maybe it will be better in one year…

Timpériale Brassin d’Essai, 2005-06-27, 5-4-6-3-11=29
Black color; big creamy head. Light aroma of rosted malt. Strong Stout, but with a fermentation problem (some sourness and bitterness, unpleasant). Very bitter.

Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2006
More or less black colour. Aroma (as collected by my snifter) of light roast, applewood smoked cheddar, a bit of nail polish remover (phenols!) and cervelat salami. Unconventional, yes, but mostly stuff I like. The flavour, however, veers in a different direction. The smokey/meaty aspect is still there, but plays a sublimated role to the green, sharp tartness of unripe gooseberries. There are some pleasant fruity notes in that tartness, too, like plums and cloudberries. The body remains full and provides a date-like sweetness. But overall, the tartness is just too much. Without it, this would be a rich and nuanced beer where the roast, smoke and fruit notes create magic but the balance is out of whack here.
