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.

beer-yum (792) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2015
Relatively restrained aroma with a hint of licorice. Taste is not unlike a bag of licorice allsort candy. Gives no hint of the underlying strength and is accordingly very dangerous. Very. Make an interesting contrast to BP’s "Victory at Sea".

Pitch black colour; low, but nice beige head. Sweet aroma, chocolate, dark bread and dried fruits. Taste is also sweet with dark bread, fruits and some smoked notes. Smooth and gentle.

33cl bottle at home from de Molen, Bodegraven. Body is pitch black, head is small, brown, average lasting, good lacing. Nose is slightly liqueurish roasty, flavor is dark chocolate, raisin, vegetables, spices, licorice, grass. Medium to heavy sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is medium lasting heavy sweet roasty medium bitter, raw green coffee beans, chocolate. Full body, oily sticky texture, nearly flat carbonation. Quite easy, great dessert beer, well balanced taste, interesting aroma.

Franckg (435) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
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.

jawlo (86) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 29, 2015
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.

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.
