COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Double" (imperial) wheat stout.
This imperial really strikes back. From a strange country far, far away, comes the only Imperial Wheat Stout in the known universe. Once again, the ’Hand’ brewery - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - boldly goes where no brewery has gone before.

Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a completely opaque black with a beige head. Roasted, burned aroma. Fairly full body with lightly vinous accents, some burned malts leave a high degree of malt astringency. 130507

Leighton (21880) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Tap at 4:20. Dark brown pour with a thick, beige head. Ashy, dry roasty malts on the nose, subtle cocoa. Great flavor, not overly sweet, plenty of cocoa, toasty and roasty malts, ashes, slight beef jerky, mild smoke. Full in body with average carbonation. Warm, light smokey finish, peat, cocoa, coffee. Great beer. (4.3)

On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours black with a creamy, beige head. Dark malt nose, some licorice, candied sugars. Big sweet flavor sugary chocolate, dark sugars, faint roast. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Modest warmth to finish, rich dark sugars, some sweet chocolate. Nice stuff. (3.8)

Rasmus40 (21476) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2011
Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, hard roasted malt, burnt and hoppy. Flavor is rather sweet and rather hoppy. Bitter, dry and roasted finish. Smooth and soft. Couldn’t pick up the wheat. 160211

fiulijn (20992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2007
Batch number 60
Black color; beige, big but fizzy head. Strange aroma mixing light feelings of malt, caramel, roasted malt, cardboard, grass, manure. The mouthfeel is quite dry, with medium strength; there is a lot of roasted malt, caramel and liquorice flavor. The final as well could not be else than bitter with roasted malt and liquorice. Not the top of the list.

4.4
Koelschtrinker (20789) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 22, 2011
Dunkler, stark karbonisierter Antrunk mit getreidigen und toffeeartigen Malzaromen. Nur langsam verändert sich das Malzaroma und wird intensiver und breiter, nach und nach gesellen sich fruchtige und intensive Schokoladenaromen hinzu, die trotz ihrer Komplexität nicht, wie oft bei anderen Bieren, in die Trockenheit abdriften. Intensiv malzig, zum Ende kurz alkoholisch brennend, was aber im Malz untergeht. Komplexes, sehr aromatisches Bier – Spitze! 11/13/12/14/12/14

harrisoni (19024) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2007
500ml bottle from GBBF (I think). Yep, well that’s a black coloured beer then with a thick tan head. Big impy stout aroma. Big bitter choc, espresso coffee, not so much hop as some. Just a bit over carbonated. Lots of choc. Not sure the whole works. A little bit oily, soy sauce. Some charcoal, very intense. Some good hop on end. Good pepper.

3.8
saxo (18961) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2009

3.7
rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2009
Bottle at Brewpub, Copenhagen. Pours black with a steady nice brown head. Coffee aroma, a bit smoked, oaky and woody, licorice and cocoa notes. Coffee and cocoa flavor, some leather some dark fruits. Roasted, maybe some ash.

3.2
mcberko (18441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2011
500mL bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, peat and oat. Flavour is smoky roasted malt, peat, oat and cereal. Simple and smoky, though not too invigorating.
