COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

kryon (2715) - Hässelby, - DEC 27, 2012
Pours black with medium frothy off white almost brown head. Nice! Aromas of coffee beans, dark fruits (blueberries and raspberries?), roasted malts, some undefined but yet very nice sour tones as well. Creamy, medium bitter, medium to full bodied. Nice loong coffee bitter finish. Mmm, very nice tones of coffee, sweet tones of dark fruits, might be some chocolate in taste as well. A very well balanced Imperial Porter. Wow!

HuskerTan (1700) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle. A- Soy sauce, teriyaki, smoke, figs, wood, roast. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, light brown head. T- Wood, soy sauce, subtle alcohol, dark cherries. P- Full body, warm texture, medium carbonation, complex finish. O- Damn, had I paid attention to see this can age for 25 years per the label, I’d have bought a ton of it. A bit pricey at $9 for 11oz but very much worth it. My bottle had a bout 1.5 years of age. Wasn’t a fan at first sight with the floaties but it can be forgiven based simply on how great it smells and tastes. My 1,700th rate and my favorite style. Hell, maybe one of my new favorite beers. Everything was just so balanced and right.

datrael (223) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 29, 2016
W końcu portret bałtycki nad Bałtykiem. Aromat śliwkowy, winny, nalewkowy, czarnych owoców, palonych słodów, ogólnie jednak dość słodki. W barwie czarne z rubinowymi przebłyskami, piany brak. W smaku dominują ciemne owoce, wędzone śliwki, jest tu sporo takiej nalewkowej słodyczy. Ciało średnie, pijalne jak na ten styl. Rozgrzewa przyjemnie. Słodycz z alkoholem przynosi na myśl belgijskiego abta, ale jest to mniej złożone. Ogólnie konkretne, smaczne piwo, nieco dla mnie zbyt słodkie ale daje radę.

lello4ever (677) - ITALY - AUG 26, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2016 Imperial fantastica. Nera impenetrabile con schiuma beige chiaro minima. Al naso intensa e avvolgente, sentori di malto tostato, dark fruits, fichi, cioccolato. Anche al palato super, č abbastanza cremosa ma bevibile, bella nota di liquirizia, cioccolato ancora ben in evidenza. Carbonazione bassa. Da bere sempre, morbida e coinvolgente.

0.33l bottle that’s efficiently filled. Dark brown with very small brown head that disappears. Smooth mouth-feel and for me little primary taste then some roasted taste.

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2016
Pours very dark brown with a small head. Nose shows caramel, soft roast, delicate booze, figs, sultanas and some bready notes. Flavours include soft roast, faint smoke, sweet bready notes and very soft booze.

Dogbrick (11509) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Sample at Hair Of The Dog during the Brouwerij de Molen and Shiga Kogen Tap Takeover on 07/30/2016. Brown-black color with a medium foamy khaki head that recedes gradually to a film. Patches of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied with a roasty malt and coffee character, with some bittersweet chocolate and brine in the background. The finish is earthy malt and chocolate. Pretty good overall.

Jesper86 (36) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Chocolate, caramel, orange zest. No sweetness overload, bitterness subtle and not overdone. Quite elegant for a Porter.
