saw this at Pikku hiding in the corner, ending a long quest... super balanced porter, chocolate with a bit of ash, super drinkable

C’est nettement moins bon que l’original ... "parfois, le mieux est l’ennemi du bien" ! Des arômes vineux un peu piquant, un peu instable ...

ZodiacM (299) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2015
Flesje gekocht @Bierkoning. Een zwart bier met minimale schuimkraag. De geur is duidelijk anders dan de reguliere Imp. Porter: door de zoet-bittere geur een duidelijke zurige boventoon. De smaak is zurig, zoet en bitter met het karakter van een whiskey/cognac. Een complexe afdronk. Het bier is minder subtiel dan de normal Tsarina, maar zeker interessant om te drinken en van te genieten.

androman (925) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
33cl bottle at home from de Molen, Bodegraven. Body is pitch black, head is very small, brownish, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Nose is alcohol, cherry, roasty, flavor is whiskey, chocolate, bonbon, cherry, slightly smoky, vanilla, toffee. Medium sweet, heavy roasty bitter, light sour. Finish is medium lasting roasty bitter, chocolate, light sweet-sour, medium alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Great dessert beer, a bit heavy, tasty, complex aroma, interesting.

allmyvinyl (6343) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle at Stuu’s. Pours black with a tight tan head. Aromas of high alcohols, wood, apple brandy, soy. Taste has some heat, more soy, liquorice, tar. Light roast notes come through. Still boozy on the finish, in a nice, warming way.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Post-studying celebration beer. 330ml bottle #168, 11%, bottled April 2015. Black, small foamy tan head when forced, bit of a fizz to it. Aroma is astringently woody, coffee-ish, raspberry. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is fruity oak, tangy red berry, light coffee, ash. Quite sharp and astringent to start, but got smoother and more chocolately over time. Slow drinking. Carbonation and tanginess had me questioning whether this was flawed, but nice anyway.

ShivanDragon (2263) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2015
batch van 2015 #843, ondoorzichtig, zwart en minimale bruine kraag. aroma van mouten, zoet, chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, whisky, zacht, gebalanceerd. Smaken zijn matig zoet, matig bitter, zeer sterke smaken, donker fruit van pruim, vanille, bourbon, stevig alcoholisch, in het begin zelfs wat teveel aceton tonen erin maar dat kan komen omdat het bier even moet ademen en opwarmen want later was dit een stuk minder, verder koffie, chocolade, laurier, jout, medium body, prima te drinken echter vond ik de eerdere imperial porters en stouts eigenlijk qua niveau wat beter.

_angst_ (3552) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2015
Nip size bottle courtesy of Hackobock. Thank you! Pours pitch black with a small ring och mocha head that doesnät leave much trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty with roasted malts, dark bread, caramel, charred wood, rasins, dried cherries, moist soil, vanilla, dark roast coffee, cocoa powder, soy sauce, cardboard, alcohol and minerals. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and slightly boozy. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny flat, round, oily, slightly roasted astringent, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, raisins, prunes, coffee, cocoa, alcohol, cardboard, minerals and soy sauce. Fairly oxidized and most likely best a few years ago but still holds up well enough. Tasty...

gEUS (1479) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2015
330 ml bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a beige head, good retention. The nose is full of mellow coffe and mocca, milk chocolate, and some earthy alcoholic touch that is typical for the last couple of BA batches with De Molen, and that I am not so found of. Vanilla and cognac notes. Medium body, thick sweet start, fading into an alcoholic and roasty end. Taste is chocolate milk and bourbon alcohol. Except for the litte off-aroma, this is a very pretty beer.
