msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Santa. Pours near black with dark tan head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, molasses, coffee, and some chocolate. Flavors of sweet roasted malts, chocolate, light coffee, and some caramel. Really flavorful imperial porter. It is pretty sweet but has a nice balance that really worked for my palate. Lovely beer.

Smells of morning coffee and dark sweet chocolate. Looks pitch black and tempting with a small, cream head. Taste is sweet, but with enough bitterness to balance it. Burnt sugar and the taste of mild coffee is very pleasant and leaves me longing for another sip. The perfect beer infront of the fire place on valentines day:) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty nose with some vanilla notes. Pale brown fast disappearing head. Dark brownish black color. Taste malt and bread and mild hops. Some sweetness too.

humlelala (881) - DENMARK - FEB 7, 2013
(50 cl bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel; BBD: December 13th 2016) Pours black with medium, tan head. Decent retention, good lace and decent regeneration. Aroma is malty, rye bread, caramel and a whiff of oxydation. Soft carbonation, full body, creamy texture and a sweet, bready finish. Taste is more dark and sweet than roasted and with a subdued hint of alcohol. Different.

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle, kindly traded with Palme. Dark as the night (who would have guessed?), oily pour with a small, beige head. The aroma is absolutely fantastic, deep and complex. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, brown sugar, dark fruit (figs and blackcurrant), port wine, cork, licorice and dark bread. The taste is just a tad worse than that, thick, oily, full bodied, with a velvety carbonation. Rather sweet, balanced by a light bitter, warming, alcoholic finish. Very malty, chocolatey and fruity flavour, makes the impression of a wood aged brew. Aftertaste of dark bread, licorice, cork, subtle roasty notes and faint earthy hints. Deep, complex, harmonic. Brilliant!

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Dark deep brown beer with beige head with big bubbles. Aroma has dark chocolate, roasted malts, sweeter chocolate and hint of bourbon-type of alcohol. Taste has dark chocolate, syrup, roasted flavors and in the end this same bourbon-type of alcohol. Oily body and medium carbonation. I’ll slightly lower my score for this, from 4,4 to 4,2. Still an excellent Imperial Porter.

Foffern (1067) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home. Vintage 2010. Has a very dark and hazy deep burgundy colour with a small light beige coffee-like head. Sweet and roasty aroma with dark chocolate, roasted almonds, oak and dades. The flavour is wonderfully complex and rich with leather, oak, coffee, dried fruit, brown sugar, coca cola and some dark chocolate. Has a oily and rich mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A fantastic beer with a great balance and wonderful richness.

Bottle ordered from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pours quite black with nearly an inch high dark beige head. The head does not last very long but leaves some lacing. Aroma is good with the expected roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is pretty good. Flavour is dark chocolate, licorice, some hops is noticeable, and some alcohol but well hidden. This is a very nice porter, of the imperial kind.
