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.

Rastacouere's rating

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 24, 2013
A long-lasting, elegant, homogeneous tan head lives above the clearish dark brown. Not all that close to black in colour, but that does not keep it from proposing a roast-focused aroma playing the dark chocolate and coffee tune accompanied by a confident, forward liquorous alcohol. Call it a coffee liquor if you will. Relatively lean palate for the genre, not without love handles, but far from the syrupy examples that abound nowadays and never overly sugary. Has a spicy kick (anise, woodsy, black pepper) which I have trouble figuring whether it comes from its otherwise subtle hops or some kind of alcohol-phenolic side effect. Not very punchy in terms of hop flavours, yet a very bitter example, for its bitterness hops, of course, but perhaps more especially for its dark espresso-like roasted malts, sharper than in the vast majority of impys out there. A very competent example, perhaps lacking in fruit to fit my very personal preferences for strong roasty ales, but cohesive and flawless.

500ml bottle @ home. Batch No. IS0002. Pours a rich opaque black with small tan head. Nose is earthy, roasted malt, and a sweetness. Flavour is upfront sweet, that lends way to a roasted and earthy flavour. The sweetness is raisin, plum, fig like. Medium bodied, and it is very well balanced through and through. Almost would consider this a desert imperial stout... very tasty brew.

Piwo w kolorze czarnym nalewa sie z niezbyt obfita lekko bezowa drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie czekolada, kakao i troche alkoholu. W smaku dochodzi troche palonosci i sliwek. Polpelne cialo z niskim wysyceniem i goryczka na srednim poziomie.

Tjomleif (215) - NORWAY - FEB 7, 2017
Botle 0,33l. Taste of caramel, burnt sugar, a bit of liquorice, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is appropriately heavy, and the alcohol is maybe noticeable, but it’s also extremely drinkable. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Opaque brown -black pour with thin brown head. Aroma is very chocolaty, powdered cocoa, fruity,light booze. Taste is bitter, very chocolate forward, not too dry for a Euro stout, really nice chocolate flavor. Palate is med-full bodied, a tad light for style, nice carbonation. Tasty.

adasko (2223) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Really nice chocolety aroma with notes of red wine, plums and a touch of coffee in the back. It’s super pleasant, might be a bit thicker though. Similar in taste, very rich, lot of different ‚dark’ flavours with pleasant roasted bitterness in the end. Mouthfeel is a bit disapointed. I was expecting much heavier body. In overall - very good stout.
