Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

metalspice (517) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2016
Helt svart med brunt skum som Ga fine gardiner ned gjennom hele glasset. Sterk duft av søt malt, tørket frukt, vanilje og hint av sherry. Smaken var umiddelbart ganske "boozy" etterfulgt av tørket frukt og noe kaffe. Tykk og oljete avslutning.

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2016
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 21 Feb 2016) Black colour with brief, foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with strong sweet coffee, liquorice and caramel. Malty, roasted taste with notes of liquorice, strong black coffee, cacao, molasses, raisins, dark fruit and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. Full body, thick and fairly oily mouthfeel. A certain sweetness. Solid and well made imperial porter in excellent balance for its strength. Lovely stuff!

HuskerTan (1420) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle. A- Alcohol, sharpies, chocolate. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Alcohol, cocoa. P- Full body, sharp texture, average carbonation, abrasive finish. O- I had looked forward to this one only to take a sip and be whipped with a palate shocking abrasiveness. Maybe I just got a triple strength bottle or something but this was like liquid sharpie. I’ve had smoother bourbon.
