4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really a pretty beer, deep and dark with a great big tan head and some decent lacing. I can smell it even as Iím pouring, a really pungent aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, some roasty goodness, and finishing up with some nice bitey hops. Right up front in the mouth I got a bunch of chocolate, going to some dark fruit and ending with a bit of astringency which balances it all out. I also got a bit of coffee and some alcohol (more of a fell than a taste) in there too. Certainly not light bodied, but a bit thinner than I was originally anticipating. Overall a great porter, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would definitely try it again sometime.

Bottle from systembolaget sweden. Big and long lastning brown head. Fresh hoppy aroma but only tiny roasted malt aroma. Mild roasted malt taste and a mild and light body for an imperial porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is slightly burnt malts, strong coffee and hard liquor. Taste is like a porter on steroids, with all the characteristics that apply to that. What I like mainly with this one is that itís so powerful and tasty, yet balanced and held back, it never tips over to the super-extreme side. The touch of salty licorice that comes in the end is magnificent and when the aftertaste sets in with that subtle bitterness, I touch myself inappropriately.

Creamy light tan head that is 1 1/2 fingers in depth. Beer is pitch black in color. Aroma is roasted dark malts with smoky notes and some coffee. The texture is smooth. The taste is dark roasted malts, burnt coffee, bittersweet chocolate with subtle hints of vanilla. There is a lingering coffee bitterness in the back end of this beer.
