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.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 10, 2012
In short: An unfocused dark ale of some kind. Just ok.
How: Bottle 500ml (I think it is 500ml), consumed one month after purchase, but if you add the long boat ride to get to north-america it was only moderately fresh
The look: Very dark burgundy-brown body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is roasted, a bit boozy, some kind of alcoholised dessert, notes of black Sambuca. Taste is strange, very grainy with a sensation of crushed brownies, red liquorice candy, anise, roast, watery caramel. More hoppy than the average porter but the fruity hops feels a bit awkward, clashing with the rest of the beer. Minimal carbonation and the body feels a bit like thick juice. And also the anise-like spiciness just didn’t work here. Felt like an amateurish beer with a bunch of stuff thrown in without much planning hoping. Not sure why they call it a ½ Idjit, and that name confuses me, I don’t understand the four third of what fractions are.

Pours dark with tan head. Good roasty notes with hints of coffee, cocoa and toffee. A nice body and a semi sweet finish.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear black, minimal bubbly tan head, not much lacing. Aroma is boozy, coffee, anise. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, heavy anise/licorice, a bit of cardboard, perhaps a liquor note. Medium body, nearly no carbonation, lingering bitterness. Unexciting.

SB Mönsterås, flaska. Aromen fyllig rostad kaffe sprit som det skall vara. Ruffig....färgen blir väl inte svartare. Eg brist på färg. Kommer inte igenom med 5000 lumen lampa :-). Tar inte stryk av mögelost. Passar bra till Jonny Cash en man som nog skildrats väl positivt. Fin rondör. Borde ersätta julmust på borden....

ERB92 (507) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
Coffee, nuts, dried fruits and chocolate in the aroma. Dark brown with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a nice Porter, but i would like it to be a bit less carbonated.

15/VIII/14 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: 11/II/16 (2014-913) Thanks to hackobock for the trade!

Clear dark brown beer, small aery beige head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: lots of coffee, sweet dried fruits, some alcohol, caramel, overripe banana, some chocolate. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of coffee, bitter touch, little sweet, some dried fruits, mocha. Aftertaste: coffee, caramel, bit sugary,s oft bitterness. Weird gelatinous chunks in the end, coming from the bottom of the bottle. Reminds me of the weird stuff in some Dark Lords. Are they cheating with some additives here???
