COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A.Le Coq Porter is a strong dark beer that can rightfully be considered to be the successor of the world-famous "Imperial Extra Double Stout." Its mature character and perfect taste are derived from sparkling spring water and extra dark caramel-malt.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Bottle from Trade By Marduk (Many Thanks). Piwo dobre smaczne, rozgrzewajace po pierwszych lykach choc nie ma za duzo alkoholu. Kolor rubinowo czerwono-brazowy. Piana srednia i srednio trwala. W smaku slodkawe karmelowe. Pasujacy doskonale na wieczor smaczny Porter baltycki.

sweet caramel and fruity aroma... the taste is caramel-malt with shades of dark fruits and milk chocolate... sweet wine aftertaste...

Black with some white head. Coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted. Light bitterness. Quite light palate. Mild and soft, not the best among of Baltic porters, and definitely not "imperial".

NordicV (1086) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2014
Mahognyfärgad öl med stort beige skum. Maltighet, kola, nötighet och lätta rostade toner i både doft och smak. Något för söt för att jag skall ge den högre betyg.

Siirapin tuoksu ja väri, mutta tunnelma puuttuu. Rokkikeikalla voisi mennä. Lämpöisenä parempi.

Light beige low head, dark clear ruby-brown (or ruby-mahogany) body. Scents of sweet roasted malts, nuts and vanilla. Smooth mild taste of roasted caramel malts, some flourish herbs, coffee notes. Easy drinkable, smooth on palate, modest carbonation. Finishes with roasted malts, alcohol twists, black prunes, not longlasting. Overall alright but not outstanding. -- Brown 50cl btl abv6.5% b@Kilpishalli (Alko Muonio 3,48€), T@home.

Tasting @ Salon del Gourmet. Brown colour with a light off-white head. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, good presence of caramel and medium maltiness. Flavor is slightly sweet with toasted malts.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear darker brown in color with a light tan head. Sweet malts, wet burnt wood and faint hints of coffee in aroma. Taste is a bit better perhaps with some bitter chocolate and roasted coffee notes, some sweetness is present as well.

On tap at Olevi Restaurant in old town Tallinn, Estonia, where the beer was listed as "Le Coq Dark." Clear, mahogany-brown with a khaki head and variable lacing. My colleague's class had wonderful creamy lacing that coated the sides of the glass. My glass had only a very modest degree of lacing. Go figure. Aroma of dark malt, caramel, nuts toffee and touch of chocolate. Taste of toffee, nuts, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Except that this beer was noticeably a lager rather than an ale, it reminded me of a Scotch ale more than a porter. Medium body and medium carbonation. Nothing exciting here, but still a pleasant enough beer and quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
