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.

Poured a deep black with no head apparent. Aroma of dark chocolate and some citrus hops. Full, oily body. Flavour is dark chocolate, berry fruit and some liquorice.

Crazy, crazy beer. Almost like a porter/quad hybrid. Rich fruitiness, a bit leathery, chocolatey, a touch of peat, not roasty. Big issue: it’s really sweet, and hard to finish even with light sipping over a long period of time. But the flavors are quite good.

From a bottle dated 4/25/14 - Pours a thick black with thin tan head. There seems to be a million little yellow thing floating in the beer all over. The aroma is totally of dark fruit. The floaters are freaking me out but I’ll taste it anyway. Mmmmmm chocolate roasted malts this is good. Overall its a thick beer that tastes great. I have some more in the basement and that is good plus I want to see if it has the floaters. This is one of if not the best porter I’ve ever had.

marcogrind (45) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 13, 2014
Pours black, dense foam. Lot of caramel, dried fruits, dark fruits, candy sugar, brown sugar, a touch of chocolate. Maybe more a quadrupel, but good.

I agree, I surrender. This is fantastic. I had a fun time walking to the train in the rain after this. Thank goodness for the small glass. Lightly boozy. Light anise and dark malts. As the dearly departed Steve Irwin would say..."Danger! Danger!" A lovely hop infused finish.

veceo (642) - CROATIA - DEC 7, 2014
Very dark brown color, average sized brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, chocolate, caramel. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Not as thick as porters with similar abv and it leaves some kind of "sparkling water feel", so its easier to drink. Alcohol is not noticeable. Excellent, little bit different imperial porter.

Bottle from Hop City Birmingham. Pours dark black with tan head. Aroma of wood, chocolate, malt and caramel. Tastes of caramel, smoky wood, chocolate, with a malty and bitter aftertaste.

Kraftig, mörk frukt, fantastiskt fyllig i både smak och kropp. Balans med mörka toner.
