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.

Deep black with a tan head. Licorice and burnt sugars lend a delicious complexity to this beer. High alcohol dries up the finish.

neongolden (1012) - 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 (473) - 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.

colui72 (490) - HONG KONG - FEB 1, 2016
Pours visibly thick, like a watered down chocolate fudge, minimal brown head, which doesn’t last. Rich aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and molasses. Taste confirms the aroma, mostly sweet, hints of vanilla and licorice. Rich in body and flavour, not very complex but damn tasty! And boozy! Excellent!

cokolwiek11 (243) - POLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Jet black beer with tanned head on it, altough head dont stay too long and have no lacing on the glass. Aroma; very powerfull sweet, dark aroma, with chocolate, cocoa, licorie. Taste: high sweetness with caramel and chocolate flavours, than hint of sour with dark fruit notes, and than light bitter that slowly builds up with some alcohol in it. Palate: full body, pretty thick, with warming up alcohol, kinda spicy in bitter after warming up. Overall: good, sweet beer, pretty powerfull with it flavours, altough not that complex, definitly would get even better with age. I would love to try this barrel aged in bourbon barrels

Je ne sais pas trop à quel moment, l’imperial porter bascule vers la stout ? En tout cas, on y est presque ici, à ce point là. Bien réalisé ici mais avec un style plus piquant et acide que ce vers quoi mon goût me porte habituellement !
