fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle from Zombier, Málaga; batch 176, bottled 05-12-11
The color is very dark, not completely black; medium sized head, reducing quickly into a thin layer. The aroma blends some roasted malt with chocolate, wood, and light firewood; original and therefore appreciated. Good body structure, less round than expected though; quite good flavor of dark caramel, with traces of chocolate, light prunes; the bitterness is correct; the alcohol is quite evident but not disturbing. The barrel aging in rum has added some layers of complexity, and it’s more drinkable than other Imperial Porters at a similar strength.
Very good.

tfredvik (1100) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
Clear, deep copper body with a red hue. The small head is beige, leaves virtually no lacing and disappears completely, except for a fully lasting bubbly ring at the wall. The beautiful looking colour of the body saves the Appearance rating however, this is one tempting looking brew! The malty, light roasted and sweet aroma is very strong with delicious notes of dark dried fruits, well integrated alcohol (including mild rum), caramel and chocolate. Very strong flavour of dark dried fruits, this one is really full of raisins! Distinct but still very well integrated rum notes, dark caramel and chocolate. Moderate sweet taste and a pretty heavy bitterness in the very long-lasting finish. The body is close to full and it has an oily texture that dries up in the finish, the carbonation is moderate. Brilliant!
[33 cl bottle, batch 176, enjoyed 2 years and 8 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Online]

teddybeer (2216) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2014
Dark brown color with a minimal and quickly diminishing off-whte head. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, ripe red fruits, molasses and slightly barrels. Flavor s sweet, almost cloying, molasses dominates over the rest, red and ripe fruit are also present, some cande sugar and barley malts. The final is sweet, very fruity with notes of barrels and slightl rum.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 15, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je opravdu krásně výrazné, je prostoupené dubem s nádechem rumu a palčivého alkoholu, v pozadí je též znát kakao. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, nízká a rychle mizící. Barva samotného piva je krásná temně rubínová. Chuť je velmi výrazně sladová s příjemným nádechem kandované pomerančové kůry s rumovými podtóny, finiš je znát po hořké čokoládě a pomerančové šťávě, zanechává po sobě palčivý ocas. V ústech pivo působí plně, má velmi pestrou paletu chutí, doprovázenou středním řízem. Jsem tímto porterem naprosto uchvácen, tak úžasná paleta chuti v kombinaci s výrazným aroma, kde člověku v mysli naskočí ten konkrétní sud ve kterém toto pivo zrálo, opravdu jsem rád za tu možnost toto pivo ochutnat.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 ----Botella de 33 cl de cervezalandia en el momento el 19-07-2014. Lote 176 embotellado el 05-12-2011. Color marrón intenso casi negro, con espuma beige bastante clara que desaparece bastante rápido. Aromas intensos ligeras maltas tostadas con predominio de los frutos pasos dulces con cierta sensación de licor y ligeras maderas empapadas en ron y licor al final. cuerpo medio, licoroso y fácil de beber ligeramente pastoso y con 11.5 vol. Sabores dulces de frutos pasos, uvas, ciruelas higos con una buena dosis de licor y ciertos toques secos de maderas al final, acabando con un ligero amargo bien combinado con todo lo anterior. Buen predominio del ańejo en ron en todo momento. Bastante buena y dulce, como cabe esperar del cualquier ron, para repetir una vez mas y esta ya es la segunda. ----Botella de 33 cl en Beni bar en septiembre de 2013 de Zombier. Buena porter con color negro y espuma algo oscura no muy persistente. Cuerpo medio - alto con gran sensación de licor y unos 11.5 vol geniales. Sabores tostados y quemados también intensos. Para repetir sin duda. En breves otra botella.

Backlog. Bottle via Systembolaget. A little too heavy on the alcohol-esters for me.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1921) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2014
Brian’s contribution to the tasting. A Lost Abbey/Brew Dog collaboration. A dark opaque brown bordering on black with a filmy beige head. 2 years old, light rum, light woodsy ness. Light bodied, zesty, spritzy mouthfeel. Candied plum, sweet, a bit woodsy, easy drinking with the only heat being in the pit of the stomach. Good stuff.
