Bottle nr 290/1170. Big thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, huge head. Dry-malty aroma. Starts strong and malty, a bit woody and dry. More and more alcoholic-warming, well balanced, with notes of bitter chocolate. A great beer!

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
Bouteille de 1500ml. numéro 356/1170. Partagée avec Boul, Patrick, Julien et Pier-Luc. Bière brune avec une mousse brune. Le nez est de chocolat et fruitée. La levure est présente. La bouche est de chocolat, elle est fruitée, la levure bien présente, elle est aussi sucré. Je la trouve trop sucrée et la levure trop présente.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2011
Magnum bottle, shared by Rodenbach99 and Slovaksniper at Iceland super tasting. Nice black pour with lots of frothy off white head. Tons of chocolate in the aroma, a slight yeasty character is present, along with lots of roasty danish stout notes. Taste: Quite bitter, lots of hops and roasted grain. Palate: Heavy bodied with good carbonation make this strong porter quite enjoyable.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
(Bouteille 356) Un collet dense et ténébreux flotte sur un liquide brun foncé. Une dentelle éparse décore le verre. Le nez de ce porter recèle de notes chocolatées confortables avec des malts rôtis assez intenses aux accents de café aromatisé. Les saveurs soutiennent les arômes avec des grains torréfiés traversées par des notes de café italien et des fèves de cacao. En bouche, la sensation du liquide est assez pleine : son effervescence modérée contribue à rendre la texture bien crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes franchement amères, davantage par la torréfaction que par les houblons.

bottle courtesy of Anker, thank you! Took this big boy camping with myself and two others, great times! consumed straight from the bottle, but it looks to have a nice size spongey head. its a solid, roasty imperial porter, lots of dark dried stone fruit, tobacco and tar, but the body is only medium as opposed to very thick and syrupy. this definitely makes the beer more enjoyable in larger quantities like this. we all wanted more when this one was gone!

Looks lovely and dark, small head. Sweet roasty aroma promises good things. However, once in the mouth it’s a bit of a let-down, as it just blends into the full-bodied porter family without enough distinguishing factors. So it’s good, but unexceptional. Like a good US porter. Almost seems watery compared to the Messy we just had. Does at least have a nice long roasty finish with pleasant bitter hops.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2011
from Erzbierschof.ch - black beer under a solid and long lasting dark creamy beige foam; nice lace; robust aroma of cocoa and black chocolate; very roasted and with some hop presence; notes of walnuts; full-bodied and very tasty; a subtle yet solid carbonation; a robust bitterness in top of some sweetness; velvety mouthfeel; very long and very bitter roasted coffeish and chocolatey aftertaste along with nutty, piney, woody and hoppy notes - a tremendous and highly complex beer !
