Thanks for sending this imperial porter, batch 01/01, Svend. Initially a mild foamer. Lots of brown thick foam to settle in the glass, on top of a black body. Aromas of cocoa, vanilla, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. The taste is very roast, creamy mouthfeel, a long finish. Appropriately carbonated.
