COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

reebtogi (4812) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
330ml bottle pours a reddish black color with a massive light brown head that retains very well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and red wine grapes with some herbal notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with some dryness from the red wine quality and a herbal bitterness in the finish. Medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation and alcohol is well hidden. A very well done brew for the style, very enjoyable.

jackl (5804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle from Kris Wines. The pour’s deep brown with a large off-white head. The aroma’s of espresso, bitter dark chocolate, charred wood, roasted malt notes. The taste is sweet chocolate, wood, light vegetal. Strong hoppy, earthy finish. A bit woody. Full body, but quite smooth. Overall, a nice effort.

shoulderbroken (2733) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle at Gainsbar. Dark brown/black with big golden head. Aroma is very miso, bit of oats too. Taste much more oats, quite sweet, sugar, really nice. Nice and thick. Maybe bit of liquorice. Very nice. Bit of bitterness at end. A poor review as this was near the end of a long session, but I can still taste this in my mind, it was so nice.

Bottle. Dark brown with disappearing beige head. Aroma is sweet roast, chocolate and caramel. Roasted malt, licorice, chocolate and dark dried fruits in the taste. Sweet and slight bitter finish. Winter warmer, but not to tell that it’s 11%, pretty light for the abv.

33cl bottle. Pours black with small tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, rich chocolate, light coffee, and a bit of fruit. Flavors of rich chocolate and sweet roasted malts, faint coffee, earthy bitter hops,, and some tingling from the warmth of the alcohol. Finishes. bitter and a little dry. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very solid imperial porter.

b3shine (6576) - Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; cola with tan lacing. Smells good too; malty with notes of chocolate and coffee, and a little roastiness. Tastes like it smells with a nice, sweet backbone and a silky finish. This is good beer!

kryon (1887) - SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2012
Pours black with medium frothy off white almost brown head. Nice! Aromas of coffee beans, dark fruits (blueberries and raspberries?), roasted malts, some undefined but yet very nice sour tones as well. Creamy, medium bitter, medium to full bodied. Nice loong coffee bitter finish. Mmm, very nice tones of coffee, sweet tones of dark fruits, might be some chocolate in taste as well. A very well balanced Imperial Porter. Wow!

Coffee, soil, and unmalted roasted barley on the nose, hints of prune. Mahogany, thin tan head. Horehound, prunes, and coffee flavor. Low bitterness, just a bit in the end. Easy carbonation, alcohol well concealed.
