Glouglouburp (5938) - 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 rather pale for an imperial porter, blackish brown with a finger of beige head. Roasted and burnt oatmeal on the nose with a wiff of coffee. Medium bodied palate, roasted notes and nuances of crisp bread. Dry and round mouthfeel but light and thin for the style.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark ruby brown with a 3" tan head and full sheet of lace that flows back into the drink. Taste is roasted malt that adds coffee and anise as it grows in the palate, moving to a bitter coffee finish. Strong and assertive, a solid imperial porter (whatever that is).

Bottle. Dark body with high creamy tan head. Aroma has hit me in the face from half a meter away. Aroma is roasty, coffee, caramel, vanilla, woody. Very nice. Taste has high roasty sweetness with coffee bitterness. Well balanced. Body is full, low carbonation, watery.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
This brew is a dark brown-black with a medium thin tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Medium-bodied with a roasty character of malt and espresso, along with some dark chocolate and earthy hop notes. The finish is semi-sweet with a charred malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Poured it from a bottle and the foam looked real nice and a great black look of the beer. I can smell some coffee, but not as much as I hoped. I think there is a distinct taste if the coffee, but I would have wanted more of the salt licorice taste.

Very dark brown appearance, sediment at the bottom of the glass., small but long-lasting head. I loved the aroma... like walking into a Starbucks. Malt, coffee, full-bodied.

Poured from a bottle. Dark brown color, very small off white head. Nice rich roasted malt smell. Sweet roasted malt and coffee flavor with a full body and a medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Riktigt god med lite lakritsaktig smak, mycket fyllig och välbalanserad. Kolsvart och mustig
