andrew_drinks (115) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at home, dug out of the cellar. Pour like Coca-Cola, dark brown and quite clear, small head that quickly disappears. Aroma is rum, brown sugar, gingerbread, treacle. Quite thin. Flavour of rich molasses, rum, a touch of spice.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2014
Limpido color cola con sottile velo di schiuma marroncino chiaro che sparisce quasi subito. Aroma intenso ed avvolgente con sentori di frutta sciroppata, toffee, sherry e legno da botte; gusto dolce e rotondo con un sapore complesso che intreccia note fruttate, caramellate e liquorose con altre di nocciole, vino passito, zucchero di canna e liquirizia. Finale lungo e rinfrancante, scaldato piacevolmente dall’abv; corpo medio-abbondante, effervescenza lieve, struttura setosa e vinosa. Ottima birra, ricercata e sontuosa, che ricorda un barley wine più che una porter.

rouhlas (339) - GREECE - SEP 18, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Dark brown-red color with frothy light beige head that quickly disappears and leaves just a ring. 2/5 score for an imperial porter’s appearance. Aroma is malty, light roasted, wood, alcohol, fruity like dried fruits (raisins etc) in a sweet red wine. Taste is sweet, it’s like the aroma but a little better with the addition of chocolate. If this beer had a better body it would be great!! Light body, oily, soft carbonation, nice alcoholic bitter fruity finish.

tfredvik (1208) - 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]

Bottle from BrewDog online shop (cellared since July 2012). Dark murky brown, slight off-white head, molasses, oak, alcohol warmth, liquorice, prunes, brown sugar, slick, syrupy, long boozy finish. Nice.
