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.

Strykzone (6272) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle. Does this world need a 11% impy porter? No! So I will rid the world of this bottle. Very dark with some amber highlights. A tan head leaves sticky lacing. An earthy, cocoa aroma. Big rich very sweet malts are tasted. Just a little fruit under that and mild bitterness. Again, huge sweetness. A little dark fruit. This is like drinking a liquoer. So thick and smooth, velvety even. Brown sugar and cooca. This is not beer for someone on a diet! Despite the listed ABV I don’t taste it at all. Really sweet and fortunately I like sweet beers. Really good.

Lele (368) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 23, 2016
Ottima imperial Porter, come sempre quando si parla della De Molen. Sia al naso che in bocca sentori di caffè, caffé bruciato, cacao, un tocco di cioccolato, tanto liquoroso. Unica nota negativa, la trovo leggermente più acquosa rispetto alle altre del suo genere, e con bollicine quasi nulle. Per il resto, un capolavoro!

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Rask0lnikov (566) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2016
Dark brown, almost black colour. Thin head. Lots of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, hints of berries, hints of sourness in the aroma. Hints of caramel, dark fruits, hints of coffee, toffee. Coffee and some dark fruits in the end. Liqeury hints and caramel in the aftertaste. Low carbonated, rather heavy bodied, quite well balanced beer.
