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.

Bottled. This beer seems to be more available now than a few years ago when it was Top 100. Deep mahogany color with clear edges and a fine ring of white head. Awesome aroma of smoke, caramel, licorice, blueberry and even and unexpected touch of orange citrus. Damn it smells delicious. Flavor follows nicely but with softer intensity. Sweet caramel and roasted malt but the complexity of the aroma isnt there. Finishes with medium dryness and a lasting flavor of espresso and spicy licorice. Dank!

Baita cerveja!! Aroma bem forte. Amargor e dulçor equilibrados. É a melhor imperial porter que já bebi. Se fosse mais encorpada seria quase perfeita.

Opaque black without a head. Aroms are dark chocolate, molasses, light smoke, hops. Medium sweet with a bitter finish. Oily, chewy and flat carbonation. Overall OK but I don’t see the hype.

Fantastic Aroma!! In the taste sensation a dense oil, caramel, liquor and distant hints of cheese. After the first SIP, are carried away with the cosmic wind on a journey through the kaleidoscope of extraterrestrial worlds. Superior beer!

KW92 (687) - WARSAW, POLAND - SEP 24, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, trwała. Oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Zboża, karmel, nuty chlebowe (pumpernikla), czekolada, kakao, nuty owocowe (śliwka, rodzynki), lekko ziołowe.
SMAK: Słodkawe. Ciemne słody, lekki karmel, owoce w czekoladzie. Bardzo oleiste - super! Goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej, krótka. Alkohol rozgrzewa przełyk, a jak na 11 % jest niemali idealnie wkomponowany w smak.
OGÓLNIE: Świetnie zbilansowane piwo. Doskonale ukryty alkohol w smaku i zapachu. Mocny/intensywny aromat. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Pours black opaque, with light brown foamy head. Aroma practically with hint of an alcohol, strong note of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, reisins and dark fruits. Flavor is similar: very smoothy, malty sweet, with notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, dried dark fruit, with hints of dark fruit. Finish is slightly bitter sweet. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitteness also, body is sticky, carbonation low. A Masterpiece. I drinked older version with 11% abv (7-5-9-5-17), but the new one (bottled on 14.4.2015, with 10.1% abv.

Kita (1546) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours hazy deep brown color with thin totally diminishing light brown head and yeast residue. Aroma of dark fruits, grass, roasted malt, leather with mild sherry note. Taste starts with sweet caramel and mild roasted malt, follows by chocolate and alcohol, mouthfeel is silky, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Royal gem...
