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.

ruigo (2334) - PORTUGAL - FEB 19, 2016
355cl bottle. Deep black colour with a thin tan head. Molasses, leather, cocoa, dark chocolate, wood, liquorice, raisins and roasted aroma. Soft carbonation and full body. Taste is quite complex with a lot of flavours rushing in. But more on the sweet side. Overall, a fantastic beer that has nothing lil’.

ogniskowicz (709) - POLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Bardzo dobry, słodko-czekoladowo-śliwkowy porter w wersji hard. Myślę że w Polsce uplasowałby się gdzieś w połowie stawki :)

kathouse (1627) - Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Deep black with a tan head. Licorice and burnt sugars lend a delicious complexity to this beer. High alcohol dries up the finish.

neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 5 2016) Pours inky black with a small tan head and no lace. Aroma is fairly sweet with molasses, burnt sugar, stewed dark fruits, light anise, a bit of chocolate sauce, some ash and tar for slight balance. Flavour is quite sweet, again riding a core of molasses and burnt sugar with chocolate, dark fruit, a bit of vanilla in there too, slight licorice. Towards the finish there is a bit of bitter cacao, burnt malt and ash but really low on roast overall. A bit of bitterness builds when warm, supported by alcohol heat. Medium full body, low carb, oily and smooth. Nice and rich, a bit sweet for me and not extremely complex, but a big dark sipping beer with low roast that seems to hit the notion of imperial porter on the head.

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Crazy aroma, leather, wood, booze, dark fruit, raisins, sweet burnt caramel, its all over the place. Black body with a thin tan ring for a head. Flavor is just like the aroma different flavors constantly flowing about with a burnt, yet kinda mellow finish. Definitely unique and good.
