BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2013
Black colored beer with hardly any head. Aroma of burned malts and alcohol. Taste: burned malts, coffee, chocolate but nicely balance with alchol warmth, some caramel and liquor notes. Some alcohol warming in the aftertaste.

MrHangover (3496) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2013
Bottle, bottled on November 11, 2011. Pours a pitch black with almost no head on top. Aroma has cognac, oak, molasses and licorice all in the mix. Flavour is quite sweet with an aftertaste that seems similar to cognac, but more spicey. Definitely get the getting the molasses sweetness and high alcohol content. Very sticky, oily mouthfeel. No alchohol burn, just a very good sipper.

33cl. Bottle. Poors black with tiny tan head. Aroma cognac, alcohol, dark fruits, cherry, caramel. Taste sugar, nice bitter, sparkling warming alcohol in the finish. Mouth-feel oily, dry. Awesome beer. The cognac is there, but not overwhelming, Well balanced sweets and bitters.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Brown/black color, nice brown head. Very full bodied taste. Very malty tasting, the bitterness lies in the background. Not much carbonation, but in my opinion it’s just enough.

lefossoyeur (510) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Dark brown amost black with a generous beige head. Strong fruity/chocolate nose with loads of raisiny character. Réminiscence of an ABT! Full bodied, warming palate, chocolate, plummy and a touch of roasted nuts. Medium carbonation. Long warming finale. Very nice.

CapFlu (4864) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
(33cl bottle) Courtesy of Blomster in a trade. Pours a large lasting creamy beige head atop a black body. Nose of booze, cocoa nibs and black licorice. Very smooth, nice palate - you'd never know the ABV was +12%. I like the lasting toasted malt front and bitter hops. Properly made Imperial Porters must have some the greatest variations of flavour on the high alcohol end of styles. I really am enjoying this for Christmas. Thanks Christer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPod

Tasted from the bottle, on 15/12/2012. Pours totally black with a lovely creamy head. Aroma is lovely, quite complex, woody&cognac notes dominate, followed by silky, slightly toasty tones from malts. Taste is awesome, rich and intense, with uncountable number of different tastes. Complexity of aroma&taste, again, is incredible. Recommended++ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
