Bottle (magnum) shared at tasting. Thanks to mathieuc for sharing it! Dark brown, almost black, with a medium brown head, good retention, leaving some lacing. Flavors are pretty nice for a 5+ years old Imperial Porter with roasted malts, vanilla, ashes (which I don’t always like, but here it fits the profile), a bit of alcohol, herbs, some spiciness and grapey-like fruitiness. Taste is moderately sweet with some bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy. Roasty finish. Flavorful Imperial Porter that held up pretty nicely.

Magnum shared at a tasting. Pours a good black with a small beige head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of alcohol, grapes and roast/chocolate. Taste is of roast and slight dark fruits. Lightly boozy but not that much. Moderate body and carbonation. Cool one, I have been curious to have it 2-3 years ago but it is showing almost no signs of its age right now!

Huge brown head, over practically black beer. Rainwater, USA hops, fragrant but smelling sweet. Bitterish-wry flavour, dry, grains & dry brown bread. Sweetness is there, but delayed, as chewing on old brown bread. Very slick-viscous, alcoholburning. Not truly great, but a good special.
