Ölbeat 316 (BC17 #3): Lervig Brewers Reserve Konrad's Stout

Brewery: Lervig Aktiebryggeri
Country: Norway
Style: Imperial Stout
Abv: 10,4 %
What about the beer?
Colour is black with a small tan head. Aroma has roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Taste begins with boozy and bitter heavy roast. Boozy sweet roast with black coffee and chocolate takes over. Towards the end sweet roasted malts, dark chocolate and salty liquorice get through with alcohol in the background. Aftertaste has bitter cocoa and very dry roasted liquorice.

Heavy and rich Imperial Stout. Booze kicks in early but gets smooth on the way. Coffee makes a quick visit, chocolate turns bitter and roast, well, it's definitely there. Pretty excellent. Fine work from the damn lucky "fjord" people.


Majestic dark brew calls for a symphonic metal song. From Norway, of course.
