rami_pl (1759) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 4, 2015
kran w jabeerwocky. ciemne z niewysoka, ale przesliczna piana, drobniutka, ciemna, niestety nie zostajaca zbyt dlugo. Aromaty glownie ciemnych owocow, jasnych owocow, rodzynek, chleba. niecodzienne mocno, inne, niz mozna sie spodziewac. jest tez dosc intensywny alkohol, ale zaskakujaco szlachetny, az czlowiek jest zdziwiony, ze to nie z jakiejs beczki po porto. W ustach slodkie, niesamowicie gladkie, stopki chrystuska w gardle. mocno owocowe. srednio ciala, male wysycenie, bardzo malo goryczki i palonosci jak na styl. Zaskakujace, jak okragle piwo majace nascie procent alkoholu mozna uwarzyc... klasa!

(bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of roast, then soy sauce, stewed fruit, milk chocolate, jam; rich, balanced flavour with a short light bitter and long light sour finish; well hidden alcohol; thick palate

mgajdaczewa (1616) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 25, 2015
W aromacie czekolada, ciemne ciasto bananowe (trochę szok) likier kawowy, świetny, pełny i niezwykle apetyczny. W smaku podobnie, większy nacisk na czekoladę niż banany, choć i te są obecne, gładkie, świetnie ukryty alkohol, świetne piwo!

dresden (1434) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 24, 2015
So brown with a slight head. Aroma is dark make, slight cherry or dark fruit. Taste is creamy, alcohol well hidden, somewhat boring I guess.. Really good but doesn’t really have a ton going on. Cost is of course ridiculous.

hkkiwi (13) - HONG KONG - NOV 21, 2015
Pours inky black with a coffee coloured head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Sweet and rich to taste, smoky chocolate. Incredible mouth-feel. A really well rounded imperial porter!

BlazerT (481) - POLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with medium, densed, light brown head. Poor head retention...... Aroma is complex, mainly dominated by honey-like sweetness (caramel/burnt sugar) together with medium dark fruits (plums, raisins) and woody aromas. Alos light touch of booze and liquorice. Taste is semi-sweet to sweet, lightly bitter in the end. Full body, oily and creamy texture, medium carbonation, finish is little astringent, light to medium bitter and woody. Slightly alcohol warming. Nice and drinkable imperial porter with strong sweet accents slightly balanced with bitterness.
