Imperial Porter destinata ad entrarvi nelle ossa... Una birra ricca e complessa che viene prodotta con una base di malti tipicamente inglese. Colore scuro impenetrabile, zuccheri residui ben bilanciati dell’amaro del luppolo e grado alcolico importante... Una grossa e grassa Porter!

The bottle popped, smoked, then exploded in foam. I had it in my fridge several days, so it was settled. No matter. Once I got it in a glass, the head disappeared quickly. Jet black. Caramel and coffee aroma. Flavor is alcohol, coffee, caramel, metal. Way too carbonated. Just OK.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear reddish brown with a five finger head from a normal pour, clearly some carbonation issues here, and the bottle keeps slowly leaking foam. Lovely sweet roast in the nose. Rich body, clearly a bit overcarbonated, dried dark fruits and a fusty touch. Something not quite right here. 070715

TorbenJensen (488) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2015
Coarse light brown foam. The aroma is dominated by tobacco and dark chocolate. The flavor is mild coffee with good dark bitter chocolate and a little English licorice. A little fat oily mouth feel and excellent roasted malt notes leading to a semi-dry aftertaste is reminiscent of leather. Carbonation is very gentle and provides space for its little heavy, but certainly tasty flavors where the chocolate and coffee that keeps best at aftertaste. Full-bodied and warming Imperial. A cozy meeting with an Imperial from Italy, which do not immediately associate with a country that has great brewing traditions.

Allt som glimmar är inte guld och allt som är välluktande är inte gott. Ändå låter vi näsan skapa en hausse som sedan spricker likt en kolsyrebubbla när munnen försöker kvittera ut det i reda njutningar. Brewfist X-Ray är en klassisk "uppgång och fall"-historia som får en att känna sig pessimistisk om människans obotliga optimism. Luktsinnet behöver ett kontrollorgan.

Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and some dark fruits. Pours dark brown wtih some snippets. Taste is balanced between sweetness and sourness. There is chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee. Bitterness is low, alcohol is well hidden. Overall solid brew.

33 cl bottle from Dommus Birrae in Rome. Drank at home. Pours beach with almost no head. Strong roasted malt taste that I enjoy. I would describe as a stout taste with the thinner texture and palate of a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle at home. BB 12/2015. dark brown color. rather big coffee-colored head. smells of spices, chestnuts, malty roast, some chocolate, light smoke note, caramel. full body, rather bubbly carbonation, rather bubbly mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, some malty roast, light bitter chocolate, some alcohol, light smoke notes, lightly sour. finishes dry and with roasted malt. good, but the carbonation obfuscates most of the taste (but also some of the alcohol), overall the taste is also a bit messy and too alcoholic. was expecting a bit more.
