COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En kraftig "Imperial Porter" med kaffetoner och eftersmak av saltlakrits. Inte lika dumdristig som storebror ”Idjit!” men har inga problem med att stå på egna ben!
English Language Label: From the one and only Dugges Ale & Porterbryggeri in Gothenburg, Sweden, an original, robust "Imperial Porter" with notes of coffee and salty liqorice.

Clear dark brown color with a large, frothy - creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy malty, chocolate, coffee, mocca, dusty, vanilla notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. The flavor is a little sharp and spiky. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (270608)

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
From tap at Den tatoverede Enke. Pours dark brown with a little reddish hue and a dense light brown head. Aroma of mild coffee and smooth chocolate. Flavour solid bitter, dry malt, smooth chocolate and a slight fruity to herbal touch into the finish. Ends smooth and nicely bitter.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with a lovely coffee note combined with notes of vanilla and dark milk chocolate and light notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with very powerful notes of cocoa beans, dark bitter chocolate, and vanilla, citrus - especially grapefruit, leading to a dry bitter cocoa finish. Nice.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours black and opaque with a creamy, beige head. Distincly burned, coffeeish aroma. Rather solid body with very burned accents, licorice, coffee, tar and a whiff of smoke. A vague acidity probably deriving from the malt - ditto with the heavy bitterness. 160607

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2007
Draught@Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg. Very dark coloured, almost black with a thick, creamy beige and longlasting head. Aroma is really strongly roasted malts, some salted licorace, coffee and a bit of tar. Flavour is salted licorace, roasted malts, coffee and some slight bitterness from hops. A real kickass beer from Dugges!

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Transparently black, creamy beige head. Lovely espresso aroma. Potent and sweet with notes of lingonberries, tobacco and licorice. Rather thick and oily with some molasses. Saccharine and resin comes through in the finish making it a bit harsh.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2007
Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse N.68, Stockholm, 2007-09-10, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Creamy aroma, cappuccino and barley coffee (you can find it in Italy...), clean, burnt log. Thick, oily, quite balanced mix of roasted malt, caramel, liquorice, sweetness. Maybe there are a bit too much ashes at the end. Much better than the one that I had the day before; strange but good.

Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, 2007-09-09, 5-4-4-2-8=23
Black color, with a nice creamy cap. Aroma of roasted malt, but also wet cardboard and ashes, too strong. Strong body, thick, smooth, a bit oily; there are sugars and a lot of roasted malt, and a touch of liquorice, also good hopping.
All this would make a very good beer, but it really tastes as if I’m sucking up an ashtray! Horrible feeling.

Bottle RBESG 07 ... While others liked this better i found it the poorer brother of the Full Idjit. HOWEVER it is still by far a superior beer to many. Deep black . light smokeyness with some fruit in nose ... juicy malts fruity with some tobacco tones especially in linger.

Tk2 draught at EBF Copenhagen 2008 ... Deep black ... rich malts ... little chocolate nose... deep malts rich alcohol ... little coffee and more roast malts.

Tk3 Bottle at home ... Thanks Jeppe ... Deep brown ... big tobacco nose ... deep roast lots of chocolate and tobacco ... quite a lot of fruit ... medium body ... low carbonation... Much as i enjoyed this again ... i wish i could get a 2nd bottle of the Full Idjit.
