Negra opaca, un dedo de espuma ocre cremosa. Aroma ahumado, seco. Gran cuerpo y gran textura, baja carbonatacion. Impresionante en boca. Sabor inicial afrutado, y luego complejo, frutos secos, café, regaliz, especias, tabaco...sensacional. Llena de matices. Se disfruta cada trago.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a jet black with a long-lasting tan head. Aroma is alcohol and burnt caramel malts. Flavor is the same alcohol bite that’s on the nose, with some roast and burnt chocolate and caramel. Has a surprising, but nice, bitterness. Pretty good.

355 ml bottle from systembolaget. Black with fluffy tanned head. Smell is coffe, liqurice, burned malt, dried fruit, vanilla and dark sweet bread. Taste is sharp burned and roasted with coffee, and liqurice. When it warms up a little it opens up and becomes more balanced, but also more sweet. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m not sure why they don’t just bill it as a stout, it bites and burns like a stout, and it doesn’t have that smokey, sweet malt backbone that I associate with my favorite porters. Stylistic quibbles aside, this is a fine beer. Gonzo pours jet black with a lot of creamy, tan head. The aroma is strong coffee and chicory and figs. The flavor has a big burst of licorice, molasses, dark candied fruit, and booze. The 9.2% ABV is loud and proud, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Bottle from SB. Very good and tasteful Imperial Porter, but I think it could have had even more taste. Still very good!
