Danish: Imperial Stout er en mørk og fyldig øl med et flot mørkt cremefarvet skum. Den er brygget af flere ristede malttyper, og så er den lagret på egetræ, hvilket bidrager til dens kraftige krop. Imperial Stouten har en stærk, stigende eftersmag af kaffe, bitter chokolade og vanille. Andvendes til vildt, stærk ost eller chokoladedesserter, eller alene i et cognacglas foran den knitrende pejs.

English: Imperial Stout is a dark and rich beer with a beautiful dark cream coloured head. It’s brewed from several types of roast malts and conditioned on oak, which adds to the heavy body. The Imperial Stout has a strong and growing aftertaste of coffee, bitter chocolate and vanilla. Suited for game, strong cheeses and chocolate desserts. Or may be enjoyed alone in a cognac snifter in front of the fireplace.

Nose is full of tobacco and toffee, very sweet. Flavor is a big more roasty with more coffee and caramel tones.

500ml bottle. Brown-black body, thin beige head. I think this one has at least at year on it, so maybe it has mellowed out some. Quite sublime, the oak tones smooth out an already drinkable, solid Imperial Stout. Chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Great stuff.

koshack (1459) - Gdañsk, POLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna, pojawiają się większe pęcherzyki, ale niewiele. W aromacie deserowa czekolada. Lekki alkohol, ale w przyjemnej pralinkowej nucie. Trochę nut owocowych, śliwkowych. Lekki alkohol beczkowy, trochę nut koniaku. Pojawia się wreszcie wanilia. Trochę wiśni. Złożony, bogaty aromat. W smaku dość wytrawny. Czekolada, nuta kakao. Jest alkohol. Grzeje w przełyku. Trochę przeszkadza. Dużo lepiej pachnie niż smakuje. Alkohol lekko drapiący w gardle. Likierowe w odczuciu, gęste, lekko słodkawe w posmaku. Równoważy to goryczka, alkoholowa i słodowa. Niezłe, konkretne piwo.

Very solid Imperial Stout. Full bodied, warming, plenty of maltiness, some coffee and alcohol. In no way a sublte beer.
