Winners

World's Best Imperial Stout

World's Best Imperial Stout
Country Winner
Olaf Brewing
Northern Comfort

Finland

"Pours rich and dark with a coffee head. A big chocolate hit on the nose with red berry undertones. The palate is packed with complex, heady flavours and keeps revealing more layers: coffee, roast malt bitterness, burnt caramel. The finish is long and bittersweet with dark chocolate and coffee. A delicious beer which begs another sip."

Belgium

"This presents well in the glass, and is gentle on the palate. Flavours are overall mild, but notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted notes and some bitterness come through and are well-balanced. There's some pleasant brown foam. "

"Banana and clove notes come to the fore in this refreshing and zesty brew. There's a creamy brown foam, with notes of chocolate, dried fruit, and a roasted bitterness on the palate. Good mouthfeel, with some sweetness. "

BRONZE WINNERS

France

"Big pour, big aroma, big flavour, big beer. Pours densely black with a foamy head. The nose is packed with berry flavours. The palate is creamy, with good chocolate flavour and some coffee and berry notes, too. Nicely complex with a light bitterness. This begs another sip."
