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.

McWorta (1516) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 7, 2013
Pitch black with a dark brown fast fading head. Noses strongly of clear vanish, ethanol, alcohol with some light sweet toffee notes and roasted malt notes to it. The texture is rather slick going into oilyness. Full bodied tasting bitter with notions of sweetness to it. Heavy beer! With a nice well balanced slick finish, lasting for some times. Very pleasant after a steak!

In de categorie van Rhythm & Blues. Wel wat bitterder en minder zoet. Werd uiteindelijk moeilijk om af te maken, bleef niet interessant genoeg.

Pours a large rocky light brown mostly lasting head. Body is black, some sparkles are visible. Aroma contains moderate malts (dark bread, hay, molasses, roasted and burnt malts, coffee, dark chocolate), light hops (citrus fruits), light yeast (leather) and licorice, grape, raisin, cherry, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet with bitter getting stronger to a light astringent finish. Body is full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Amazing balanced beer full of aromas and shifting flavors. Very good!

This poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was of chocolate, smoke, and cola. Flavor was similar but more on the caramel and chocolate side, lacking and roast really and a bit too sweet for me.

JohnnyRio (53) - FINLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Jet-black beer with a thin foam. Aromas ofroasty maltiness, strawberry and licorice. Moderate sweetness, chocolate and coffee. Very intense aroma and pleasant. Hints of sweet on taste to come up with milkchocolate with strawberries ​​flavors. Toasty, slightly licorice and coffee. Pretty good balance. Full-bodied, palate. With even slightly burnt ashy at the end. Tsarina Esra Imperial Porter is great beer, which clearly needs maturing.

All these years and not rated this! How did that happen? Opaque black - brown beer, a few tan bubbles for a head. Palate is smooth and semi dry and pretty much zero carbonation. Rich dark chocolate malt. Touch of dark fruits. Simple beer, and flat - but amazing!
