Danish: Russian Imperial Stout har sit navn tilbage fra zartiden i Rusland. Denne kulsorte l var zarhoffets foretrukne. Vi har tilladt os at give denne klassiske l en lille drejning i retning af vores smag. Der er brugt trverget malt og tilsat et stnk friskbrygget colombiansk kaffe. Hvornr kan man s drikke denne l ? Traditionelt er stout jo betragtet som dessertl. Det er vores erfaring, at det er synd for llet hvis desserten er af den sde slags. Prv den til blde oste eller chokolade med min. 70 pct kakao. Men Hornbeer Russian Imperial Stout gr alts ogs fint alene!

Kran PTP. Aromat przyjemny, czekoladowo-kawowy. W smaku powtrka, dużo ciemnych słodw. Piwo mogłoby jednak być zdecydowanie bardziej intensywne, nie wywiera wielkiego wrażenia.

Black. Coffee aromas, toasted malt, chocolate. Sweet taste with dark dark malt, coffee and chocolate. Some hops adding bitterness to the finish. Pretty dull.

rosenbergh (11159) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2016
500 ml bottle. BB 01/09/13. Mange tak Timo A! Black color, small tan head. Roasted malt, alcohol, sweetness and burned white fish in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, sweetness, spices, alcohol and sugar. Nothing really wrong with this but a bit boring for an Imperial Stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (5582) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a massive cloudy caramel-hued beige head. Nose is dark berries, coffee, grains, caramel and hints of licorice and leather. Taste is bitter herbs, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and hints of grains and dark berries. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but the high carb levels and bitter herbal hoppy notes makes it a bit harsh around the edges. Decent enough, but certainly no winner in this weight class.,

Huge slightly fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish mineraly, weeds, bark, roasted grain, hops, sour coffee, licorice, burnt toast, co2 stinging in the nose. Taste is sour-ish roasted, weeds, sour coffee, burnt grain, grass, minerals, burnt toast, bark, licorice, pine needles, paper. Medium to longlasting bitterness, sour-ish harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

tom10101 (5763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle (500 ml) at home. Best before 06-06-2017. Pitch black with a frothy large persistent brown head leaving good lacing. Aroma is of fudge, vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, raisins and mild spiciness. Taste is sligthly sweet, mildly acidic and quite fruity with raisins, roasted malts, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Medium body, but a bit thin for the style. Medium carbonation. Fruity finish. Short aftertaste. Decent flavorful RIS but thin on the mouthfeel and a bit too acidic for my liking.
