Bamsen78 (4926) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy nearly black with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt, wit notes of caramel, chocolate and coffee. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and chocolate, with notes of roast and coffee and hints of fruit and hops. Warming but not disturbing alcohol presence. Fruity and roasty afteraste with bitter hints of alcohol. Good. More palatable than the excessively boozy imp stouts.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle, 10%. Faint fruity aroma. Almost black colour. Small off-white head. The flavour is roasted and fruity with a good alcohol note in the finish to balance. The bitterness is a bit rough, perhaps too much bitterness from the alcohol. The barrelled version I liked a lot better, perhaps this would improve with a few more years in the bottle.

ALLOVATE (2861) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2016
Cheers to bergstaden for this one, even if its taken me three years to open the bottle. Skål!
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Thiny looking and translucent - a deepest, darkest cola brown. Headless and still. Deep blend of umami, charbroiled meatiness, velvety Belgian chocolate, fresh strapped leather, woody spice and plum wine on the nose - beautifully consumed. Medium bodied and velvety smooth like a fine Merlot with the viscosity of a chocolate liqueur. Quite a bit of warmth aides the complex malt and yeast nuances. The umami of the nose comes through in leaps and bounds. Lots of chocolate, light residual sweetness and nuttiness. Plum and savoury fruit notes build. Long in the swallow. A very slow sipper, but a wonderful one. Love this beer. A true imperial porter that is perfectly balanced and steers well clear from being over the top. Absolutely delicious!! (50cL, no date stamp)

Tap@Fermentoren, Copenhagen - pours black with tan head. Dark roasted malty aroma and taste with chocolate prominence, some coffee, caramel, dark dried fruits, vanilla traces throughout into a solid roasted finish. Very nice!

Douberd (4636) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
(Aegir Natt Imperial Porter) Bottle 500 ml at home, from a trade. Served into a snifter, side to side with the Bourbon barrel aged one. ABV 10% Black colour on the body, with a small beige head on top, thin and with average retention. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, raisins, some dark fruits. Taste of light roasted malts, well hidden alcohol, chocolate and light moccha, prunes, light fudge, coal on the finish. Medum body, soft carbonation. Nice.
