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.

Ah, doesn’t it feel just great to drink a proper porter? Black pour with a frothy tan head. Wonderful nose of chocolate (running the spectrum from white to dark), vanilla, marzipan, oak, and roasted malts. I’d have given it a 10 if, ceteris paribus, it were a little stronger (meaning more obvious to the nose, not necessarily different in its constituent notes). Smooth, medium-to-heavy body with austere carbonation. Taste is sweet and only sufficiently bitter, with a mild boozy component, with an earthy but sweet finish.

Bouteille daté 05/04/12, dégusté après 37 mois. Robe noire surmonté d’un épais col de mousse brunâtre épais, crémeux et persistant. Arômes de chocolat noir et début de madérisation. Raisins secs, mélasse, café, grains rôties. Les effluves sont intenses, légèrement alcoolisées et bien sucrées. En bouche, goût de raisins secs, cassonade, chocolat noir, mélasse et fruits rouges. La rondeur incroyable fait coller le sucre partout en bouche sans pour aurant être trop relevé. La finale laisse se dévoiler des saveurs plus amères du chocolat et grain de café. La texture est épaisse, l’équilibre incoyable. Cest doux et soyeux, l’alcool ne goûte pas. Le côté sucré est bien entendu mis de l’avant mais le liquide reste d’une douceur et d’une légèreté déconcertante.

Aromat: kawa, czekolada, karmel, sos sojowy i wanilia. Piana: obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa. Wysycenie: niskie. Smak: potężna słodowość uwypuklająca wszystkie aromaty oraz średnia palona goryczka. Bardzo treściwe piwo. Alkohol świetnie ukryty jak na taki woltaż. Świetny imperialny porter.

Bottle in sniffer Pours brown black with no head. Almost no carbo. Chocolate roasted malt and espresso in the nose. Same in taste. Brown sugar, toffee, soy sauce, dark butter chocolate. Slight roasty. Nice finish. Very good as usual by de molen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wielkie piwo. Perfekcyjne w prezencji i w odczuciu. Jedyne co mi brakowało jeżeli chodzi o zapach to szaleństwa aromatów. W smaku też za dużo słodyczy i zbyt ułagodzone. Ogólnie jednak świetne.

Bottle from Voldby. Pours black with a small tan head. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, some fruits, hint of coffee. Flat carbonation. Full body. Oily texture. Very good.

Une bonne attaque en puissance torréfiée qui s’adoucit très rapidement. Une bonne porter bien black (on tend même vers la stout je trouve) mais des saveurs intéressantes en final. Bon.

Beergaard (187) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Good beer but in my opinion a bit overrated. Probably because the focus is on the sweet and caramel like malt characters. Some hops in the end. Not bad.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. Small head with beige color. Black and full body. Smells of yeast, chocolate, coffee. A sweet and bitter taste of salt, punch, caramel, chocolate with an aftertaste of alcohol, salt and coffee. A bit too boozy and too low carbonation for my taste. Bonus points for complexity.

Shared bottle. Dark with almost no head. Strong aroma of dark chocolate, plums, candized fruit, licqourice. Taste is more less sweet, fruity, plums. Alcohol warmth. Good one.
