COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

nuplastikk (5370) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Thick mollasses opaque black body. Rusty beige head, steadily lines the glass. Rather worthless deScription doesn’t help to know what it going on in this beer. One...it tastes a little suspiciously extract boosted to me. Two...what do you mean changed? Was this licorice barrel aged or something? Really does maintain some semblance of porterhood, even if it is a big oily sweet sugary mess of a beer. Raisin, licorice, brown chocolate, syrup. Not that bad, but I probably wouldn’t buy this again..screams unauthentic. Very little subtlety or grace, surprisingly little malt depth.

yourilevesque (903) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bière noire comme la nuit au-dessus de laquelle flotte une mince couche de mousse, épaisse lors du service mais rapidement fondue. Les arômes évoluent fortement au fil des Celsius qui augmentent. Plus froide, la bière était beaucoup sur la pacanne au beurre et la croustade aux pommes. Au fil des Celsius, beaucoup d’alcool, de la mélasse, des pruneaux séchés et un gâteau au fruits qui me rappelle vaguement du Grand Marnier. Nez évolutif très intéressant! En bouche le liquide est assez mince et donc très facile à boire. L’alcool devient beaucoup plus subtile mais je suis toujours dans ces notes de mélasse mais cette fois avec un léger goût de vanille qui me rappelle un alcool chaud américain. Moyennement longue, cette bière se boit parfaitement en accompagnement d’un baklava aux amandes.

DraftDodger (726) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2015
Copenhagen 14/10 2015. 50 cl from draft at Søernes Ølbar. Pours dark brown - almost pitch black - with small beige head. Dissapears fairly fast. Aroma is sugary and quite potent with alcohol. Soft carbonation and thicky and sticky palate. Taste is quite sweet. Chocolate and prunes treated with sugar. Sort of unbalanced on the sweet side. Kinda reminds me of hot beer with whipped cream. Not sure if that is a compliment.

Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Pours a thin tan head on a black body. The aroma is subtle and complex: licorice, burnt wood, honey, roasted malt, coffee, molasses and dark chocolate. The taste starts with mild cocoa sweetness, a little coffee bitterness, then more sweetness and cream. The texture is soft and smooth. Excellently balanced flavors. Too easy to drink for the ABV.

Bottle. Deep brown with a light brown lasting head. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, biscuit and marshmallow. Oreo cookie flavor with a dry roast finish. Heavy body with a foamy feel.

ebone1988 (774) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Aroma is lots of dark fruit, raisins, sweet malt, complex. Appearance is dark brown, dark khaki head, poured pretty thick. Taste is crazy, complex, starts with dark fruit and finishes with roasted malt. Burnt caramel, maybe. Getting some vanilla after it lingers. Real nice. Mouthfeel is thick, soft carbonation and lots of flavor. Overall, this is very well done.

UXO (1130) - CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
Appearance: opaque black with one finger of dense mocha head demising gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: boozy dark fruit, liquorice, coffee, burnt sugar. (7/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: full slightly oily body, low carbonation, warming bitter finish. (4/5) A little hot initially, but it mellows nicely as the taste buds numb. OK, that may be a little unfair - it’s actually a pretty smooth imperial porter, but the ABV presence is certainly emphatic, verging on solvent. Decent complexity of flavours on the nose and the tongue. Definitely not subtle. (15/20)
