Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a clear reddish brown with an off-white head. Heavy sweet caramel, oxidized wood and booze. Solid body, caramel, vanilla, wood, whisky and some warming alcohol in the finish. Not even close to an Imperial Porter, I’d call this a Barley Wine - and a damm good one. 090212

On tap at the Brewdog Camden. Clear dark red brown beer, no head. There is some carbonation in the palate however, providing a light crispness. Smooth creamy malt that has some lovely barrel aged characteristics going on. Trace of bourbon and a whisper of brandy. Red fruits join in along with a little toasted coconut. The malt turns a little caramel, slightly aged tasting - in a good way! Reminds me somewhat of a Firestone Walker Anniversary beer - complex but with all flavours in really good balance. A fine colaboration, very nice indeed!

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - 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.
