Danish: En meget fyldig Russian Imperial Stout på 12% alk. Den er brygget i oktober 2008 af 7 af de bedste bryggere i Danmark, som en blanding af de 7 bryggeres egne opskrifter af øllen. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret 7 måneder på portvins fade fra vores venner i Niepoort. Resultatet er en meget fyldig øl, præget af portvinens sødme. Både duft og smag er domineret af druer, portvin, kaffe, chokolade og ristet lakrids. Kroppen opleves silkeblød, medium sød, og der følger en varm, lang eftersmag.

English: Seven Niepoort Barrel is a very rich imperial stout, brewed in October 2008 by 7 of the best brewers in Denmark by a pooling of their individual recipes for the beer. After primary fermentation, this fraction of the brew was racked into a port wine barrel from our friends at Niepoort. After 7 (!) months in the barrel, the beer is intensely full bodied, with rich port like sweetness. The aroma and flavour is dominated by ripe grapes, port, coffee, chocolate and liquorice roast characters. Silky smooth and full palate with a medium sweet, warming and long aftertaste.

Black color. Aroma of roasted malt, Port wine, American hops. Strong mouthfeel, very good chocolate flavor, with just some roasted malt, very warming. Powerful, rich, a bit coffeish and creamy at the end. Strong bitterness. Very good.

Nuffield (4142) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2009
So rich! with hints of smoke. Thick, coffee-influenced drinking. It ends too bitter, to my taste, but a very good beer nonetheless. Bottle shared at RBSG 2009 grand tasting.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle at the RBSG09 grand tasting thanks to yespr. Black with a tan head. Vanilla and chocolate aroma. Dark chocolate flavor with nice port and wood nuances, finishing a little bit hoppy. Damn, the port barrel just perfectly compliments this. A standout in a tasting of several (at least my me) amazing stouts.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2009
From [email protected]øbenhavnske Øldage 2009. As black as it gets with a thick, dark choco head on top. Strong tar-ish malt aroma. Coffe, bitter chocolate and licorice, alcohol and wood. A fat malt body is coating the palate. Quite sweet with coffee, chocolate and heavy roastedness. Alcohol is noticable, notes of dark dried fruits and vanilla. Stong, kind of edgy bitterness in the backbone. Chewy mouthfeel. Alcohol heath, hard roasted malts and sharp bitterness in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It pours a black body with a dark brown tint and a minimal sized tan head. Chocolate, coffee, oak, notes of burnt malt, vanilla and alcohol in the aroma. Sweet flavor with alcohol, lots of coffee and chocolate, vanilla, burnt malts and bitterness. Warming, full-bodied and sweet. The initial flavor lasts a long while, and the alcohol gets more pronounced towards the very end. The unbarreled edition isn’t as warming as this one, think I prefer that one. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 090516

Bottle. It’s black in the glass, topped by a finger-thick, tan head. The aroma is slighlty vinous, with coffee, beef-stock and alcohol. It’s quite sweet on the palate, roasted and coffee-ish, with alcohol and some chocolate. Full-bodied and warming, but not pushing. A really lovely beer, one that I would love to re-visit. 110513

Draft - Black body with a very creamy beige head; Very fruity nose lots of it from the barrel ad tons of roast that is way better fitting the the non-barrel version; Very soft textured and carbonated body, bittersweet with a very warm alcohol bite; Long finish with tons of roasted burn, the port aromas are at first to apparent but melds fine together in late in the very long finish. Very fine beers, but I actually like the straight version better.

skortila (5730) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2009
Tap @ København Ølfestival 2009. Aroma has chocolate, roast,, woodchips, port fruitiness and some vanilla. Opaque, black coloured beer with a brown, bit fluorescent head. The taste is sweet with a lot of (roasted) malts with chocolate, oak some fruitiness, some vanilla and some wine. Lingering maltiness of dark chocolate malts. Perfect balance and complexity. WOW! Best beer at the festival!
