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.

Sample, daught. Pitch black colour, nice beige lacing. Lovely roasty burned malty chocolate woody aroma. Great filling mouthfeel indeed. The flavour has a very pleasant roasty maltiness with chocolate, roasty sweet caramel, wood and a lovely long lasting bitter roasty finish. Yum indeed!

yespr (44093) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
CBF09. From tap. Pours pitch black and with a small chocolate brown head. Smooth roasted malt, chocolate port wineous notes. Wood too. Smooth port barrel flavoured with a nice roasted malt base. Subdued chocolate notes. Light sweetness. Full bodied. Very intense. Acidic and roasted flavoured finish, light tarish. Lovely, yet a prefer the base version above this - sometimes the barrel ageing levels out the subtle complexities of a really well crafted beer.

thewolf (12487) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Tap @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours utterly opaque black. Impossible to see through. A great, creamy beige, staying head on top. Aroma is sweet, lots of wood, toffee, port, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate and light liqourice. Super creamy mouthfeel, soooo velvety. Sweetish flavour with lots of roasted malts, port character, chocolate, oak and some super-elegant blueberry notes in the background. This is so elegantly balanced. Lots of power, but still the 12 % is so well hidden. Easily the best beer of the festival! Make more, Nørrebro!
