Tap at Churchkey. Pours deep, dark brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, chocolate, prunes, fig, and some earthiness. Flavor matches the nose with dry, roast malts forward, chocolate, light earthy bitterness, faint ash, and faint dark fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (2439) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy beige head and nice lacing. Tastes like strong, astringent booze, pungent raisin and dried fruits. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like light bitterness, light booze.

solidfunk (4474) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2014
Don’t get to try strong porters that often and this one was a bit of a letdown. It certainly hides the booze well - it doesn’t taste like a strong porter. Some roast here. Tap at Churchkey.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, schokoladig, Kaffee, dunkle Früchte. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig schokoladig, Kaffee, dunkle überreife Früchte, minimal säuerlich.

caesar (5317) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2014
Bottled, BB 30 05 14, large sample. Hazy dark brown color, medium frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, bit coffee, bit licorice, some fruity blackcurrant notes, dark bread. Slight oxidation, bit metallic hint. Taste is quite roasty bitter, hint of sourness from the dark malts, bit sweet. Quite high on carbonation, which depletes any creamy mouthfeel. Sparkling. Slight salty on the tongue even. Finish is quite harsh roast, again carbonation on the high side. Ok brew.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Cask. Fairly roasty nose w little sweetness, quite a nice espresso roastiness, milky, good balance of strong porter character. Has a vinous red wine character as well.

sebwaw (22) - POLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle at home, served in snifter. Pours deep black (like crude oil) with moderate, a little bit brown head. Looks very encouraging. Aroma is rich, but mostly caramel, coffee, dried fruits, some toffee and roasted malts. Very pleasant, however, not too intense to be frank. Full-bodied, in the beginning seems quite sweet, but finish is definitely bitter and long. Beer is very silky and smooth with lots dark chocolate taste, I expected some sourness, but didnt find one. Soft carbonation and well-hidden alcohol makes it easier to drink. Overall, its not the top imperial porter, but being reasonably priced makes it great choice. I definitely buy another one on the occasion.

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Black color, against the light dark brown. Small brown head, lacing glass. Aroma: roasted dark malts, coffee, coffee beans, dark chocolate, dark fruits like plums, raisins little intense, but nice. Taste: coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee liqueur. Semi-dry, slight acidity and bitter from dark malts. Medium body with medium carbonation, a bit watery but smooth. Warming coffee finish. Good beer, well drinkable.
