3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1500 ml. bottle sampled @ "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Thanks! Average light brown head, black. Heavy on roast, bitter, bit thin, light herbal bitterness, coffee grounds, leather, liquorish, dark fruits, grainy, feels tinned out. Okay but not very exiting, not sure if this is the age (quite possibly) or it was never their most exiting beer. Agreeable enough porter.
