3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Oz. Bottle. Poured black, big beige head, noticeable thick bodied. Aroma is of Malts (strong), alcohol hints, coffee and some hops. Great taste very sweet but somehow works well since it is well balanced with hops, coffee flavors and even the booze. Nice full bodied beer.

Big tan head, great lacing. Dark black body. Nose is predominantly sweet, creamy, over roasted nuts and chocolate. Flavour is rich creamy chocolate, coffee, nuts, hints of dark berries, good bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is rich, creamy, luxurious. Really thick. Brilliant stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From old notes.
The bitterness and boldness doesn’t really work for me here. Looks good, smells fine but the palate just isn’t as balanced or congruous as it should be. Not bad though.

Tap at tipsy cow. Dark brown. Aroma of coffee, stone fruit, hops. Flavor is lots of roasted notes, some coffee, booze, pine. The hops are very apparent in the finish, can catch you off guard. Very good

Svart öl med brunt skum. Doft av malt, mörk choklad, mörk rostat kaffe, sötma, lite alkohol. Smak i samma bana med en trevlig beska och eftersmak. Balanserad och god öl.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12fl oz bottle. Pours very dark brown with a thick light brown head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and red fruits. Rich taste of red fruits, coffee and milk chocolate. Lots of Demerara sugar, and the finish tastes of dark rum. Strong background of alcohol and a good hop bitterness. An excellent characterful Imperial Porter.

Flaske, delt med Steven hjemme hos ham: kølsvart med tett beige skum som gir fine kniplinger. Superb aroma og smak av mørkbrent kaffe, molasse/demerara sukker, rom og mørke bær. Overraskende myk for sin høye IBU og voltstyrke, uhyre balansert med andre ord. Lekker og lang konfektaktig ettersmak.
