500mL thanks to my Norwegian Secret Santa! Deep, clear mahogany pour. Thick, dense yellow foam. Webby, thick lace. Nose is more complex than the Jack Daniels BA version, Lynchburg. Dark chocolate/semisweet chocolate, brunes, black cherries, thick fudge. Bourbon comes through the nose even in this version- just more nuanced. Big vanillin, white cake, and coconut. Taste is mega dense, chewy fudge, mild citrus hoppy balance, lemon and lime zest, grapefruit. Palate is super dense, hoppy balanced. No iota of sugar or cloying. Oh yeah. This is some world class stuff. Mind blowing.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2012
Pours all black with a brown lacing. Aroma of smoke, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Amazinligy good balance. Full bodied, with a nice moutfeel. The high alcohol is well hidden in the mouth, but gives a nice, warm feeling in the chest. To summarize it’s a really, really good ale, complex taste that’s well balanced, all you need from an imperial porter.

tfredvik (1203) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2012
It might not be as black as a moonless night, as the label claims, but the body is at least close to black, with a brown tint. The brown head is quite small and fairly quickly it reduces to a thin film and bubbles clinging to the wall. Ok lacing. Many porters boast to be "chocolate monsters", but this one really deserves that nick: the aroma is massive sweet milk chocolate, absolutely fabulous! Also plenty of dark, sweet caramel. The aroma is lightly roasted, and in the background there is coffee, and dark dried fruits like raisin. The initial taste is moderate sweet and light bitter while the finish is moderate bitter. Again the chocolate is very present in the flavours, also caramel, faint coffee and a touch of alcohol in the finish, lightly roasted. The fruits are not dried, more like slightly overripe blue grapes. Soft carbonation, full body and a velvety chocolate mouthfeel, this is like drinking thick cocoa! A delicious brew, only lacking a bit in bitterness and hoppy notes.
[50 cl bottle, batch 183, enjoyed 4 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]
