4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perfect imperial porter aroma: roasted malty sweet with just a hint of coffee then chocolate, would look for a little more to come out. Very dark brown in appearance just barely letting a hint of light through. Slight lacing on glass and more persistent on the surface than most porters. Bitter start changing to roast malt flavors with a slight boozy bitter coffee finish. Roast bitter coffee pleasant aftertaste. Carbonation is spot on and the beer clings to the plate without being cloying. Gives a slight warming feeling in the stomach. Overall a great representative of this style.

Den här har det tjatats om länge nu. Visst är den bra. Härligt avslut. Toner av oboy och kaffe.

Bomber. Coffee and dessert in a bottle. Typical dark opaque porter, but with crazy rich coffee, chocolate and vanilla flavors, a little raisin. Can't do it all night because its so intense, but one of my favorite things in life. A great 2nd, 3rd or last beer of the night.

Bottle, pretty much as pictured, though slightly different. This is good, but I’m surprised to see a 100 rating on it. Smells lightly of coffee, some vanilla. Taste is similar, a nice bit of coffee but not overbearing. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Appearance: black with creamy mocha head that quickly dissipates. Aroma: roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, vanilla and some hops. Taste: almost some dark fruits and floral notes at the very front leading into vanilla and coffee and finishing with bittersweet cocoa and some piney and coffee ground bitterness. Mouthfeel: creamy, silky, smooth with little carbonation. Overall: this is delicious. It’s got multiple flavor characteristics that balance perfectly well together and have a great bittering finish.

Awesome pint. Pours black with thick mocha head and lacing. Pungent aroma of coffee, vanilla, roast malt and hops. Taste is coffee bitter with long lasting palate that brings out the different aromas one by one. Highly recommend. Tap at Taberna Lupulo.

Bottle @ Bruce’s birthday tasting. Cheers to whoever brought this along! The pour’s deep brown with a modest off-white head. The aroma’s roasted chocolate, robust charred malts, hints of vanilla and sugar-coated wood. The taste is gull of roasted malt bitterness. Robust wood. The barrel treatment is very pronounced in this. Strong vanilla, soft sweet chocolate. Medium body, quite smooth. Overall, very nice. Slightly cumbersome, but tasty.
