CapFlu (5101) - 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

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 15, 2012
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

Temptation (257) - - NOV 13, 2012
A wonderful beer with a great looking: Pitch black, low -but very well- carbonated and a tiny head. In mouth is velvety and very elegant, but powerful and very well balanced. The development is almost perfect, although I missed a little bit of lasting...In any case, a magnificent and majestic beer.

Bottle at home (thanks to Dennis for an IP trade) - 30/10/12. Pitch black with no head, still as the night! Big waft of cognac hanging over the glass, dark malts, almond, plastic, woody tones. Tastes of dark fruits, cognac, touch of booze, wood, cognac. Great mouthfeel, full bodied with very fine carbonation and a smooth velvety finish. A great strong Porter, the alcohol is very well disguised and with a luxurious finish.

Courtesy of BOLTZ7555. It pours dark mahogany with mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up molasses, earthy sticky malts, a bit of chocolate, dark roasted malts and slivers of candy like boozy cognac. The taste delivers dark roasted malts, thin slivers of molasses and some mildly spicy black licorice. Into the finish I get some smooth sweet cognac like boozy notes.

Dark brown nearly squid ink pour with a small latte head. Burnt wood, ash, booze, cocoa, roasted coffee and caramel in the nose. Flavor also brings with it some toasted marshmallow and campfire. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty nice beer.
