BrewMaster’s Series #1 - The BrewMaster’s Series is a limited edition series where each beer is crafted by one of our brewers. Every batch in the series is unique and reflects the brewer’s imagination, creativity, and passion for beer. Enjoy. Youngblood’s Imperial Porter is brewed with a wide variety of malted barley and has a rounded chocolate character from the roasted grains. I wanted to explore using many different malts. It’s not for the faint of heart.

Bottle: Dark brown and mellowed out quite a bit. Tangy flavors with a coffee finish. Thin and slimy body. Tasty. Thanks Indiana_Red for pulling another oldie out of the cellar.

a surprise wish list cross off that has been cellared by a friend since about 2003!!! after a tasting he busted out a 4 year old World Wide, this one (and from what i can gather this brewer doesn’t exist anymore) and get this - a 15 year old bottle of 12% Port Older Viscosity. the sample I had (in 2010) which obviously had some age on it but has been stored well. It was awesome to try, but a little muddled and unfocused. still lots of chocolate and roasted malt, little hop presence, and some warming anise like alcohol. probably better in 04-05, but I can’t go back in time, so i gotta rate it like i see it."

(Bottle during RBWG) cloudy dark brown with dark tan bubbles. Nose of oxidation (welcome here), cocoa, rich, and light raisin. Taste of raisin, paper, very oxidized, toasty and roasty finish.

22 oz. bottle from TheBeerSommelier- thanks again, Matt! I think this was a 2004 vintage. Pours an opaque brown with no head. The aroma has some initial metallic notes, but beyond that is tobacco, charred wood, cola, and a lot of dark chocolate. Flavor of roasted malts, cola, charred wood, dark chocolate, and molasses. Nice. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Not bad at all; I can vouch that STLWill liked it a lot, too.

Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a small quickly diminishing tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a smoke and vanilla. Easy to drink a good Baltic porter.

2/25/12. Bottle shared during RBWG 2012 by Walt. Very dark brown pour with a small brown head. Dusty chocolate aroma with a touch of oxidation (reminds of an old ale a bit). Sweet chocolate entry with lingering bitter roastiness.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2011
Black muddy body. Brown creamy head. Quite nice aroma of chocolate, coffee and some caramalts: not overwhelming, but interesting aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavour: well balanced, nice complexity.

Older bottle thanks to cquiroga. Pours with a black body and a lasting deep brown head. Good lace. Aromas are very vinous and estery, big fig notes, brown sugar, plum, dark fruit, roast, fudge and milk chocolate. Flavors are somewhat oxidized. Roast, vanilla, lots of raisin notes, dark fruits, fig and milk chocolate. On the sweeter side of things. Creamy, mellow and light oxidation. Low carbonation. Good, but was probably better a few years ago.
