MOHAWK BLIZZARD IMPERIAL PORTER 2012: Mohawk Blizzard är ett extremt öl. Det är bryggt med tio maltsorter, mörkt rörsocker och honung, samt åtta olika humlesorter. Allt för att bidra med komplexitet och samtidigt ge balans och elegans. Drick den nu, eller spara några flaskor till nästa jul och upplev hur de lagrade tonerna av starkvin och nötter tillför ytterligare en dimension till detta öl.

English: Mohawk Blizzard is an extreme beer. It is brewed with ten malts, dark cane sugar and honey, as well as eight different varieties of hops. All this to help with complexity, while providing balance and elegance. Drink now, or save a few bottles for next year and see how the layered tones of fortified wine and nuts adds a further dimension to this beer.

(Bottle). Lovely scent of hops mixed with aromas of dark roasted malt, cane sugar and licorice. The taste is hopy with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and some salty licorice. Dangerously easy to drink with a tone of warming alcohol in the finish. However, In my view there’s a little too tangy/fruity tone in the taste, I prefer drier Porters.

Bottle: Aroma is roasty and fruity with notes of cacao, dark fruits, molasse, dark chocolate. Very dark brown color, creamy coffee brown color. Flavor has intensive notes of dark chocolate and cacao, toffee, sweets, roastiness, malts, some cacao bitterness. Give me more of this stuff...

Bottle. A very dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has some vanilla hints, with dark chocolate, coffee hints, some molasses and licorice as well as a roasted touch. Rather dry on the palate, with a fine carbonation level. Salty licorice, molasses, roasted malts and dark chocolate in the flavor, a fine bitterness chiming in. Lasting roasted finish with salty licorice. A bit drier than I’d prefer, but still a fine beer. 141213

tfredvik (1203) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Cloudy black body with a bit small, tan and fairly long-lived head that sticks somewhat to the glass. Strong aroma that is surprisingly little malty but with a rather strong hop influence of pine and herbs. Lightly roasted malts in the back and traces of smoke. The strong flavour is much more malty, with coffee and other roasted elements. There is also faint notes of dry cocoa and chocolate in the late finish. The hops are evident in the flavour as well: pine in front with grapefruit and herbs in the back. The alcohol is noticeable, but not unpleasant. Magnificent mouthfeel: it’s a full-bodied beer with a creamy and smooth texture, soft carbonation and a very dry end. A nice hoppy porter not that far away from a BIPA.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

wihlan (339) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Flaska från systemet - Kolsvart med vitt skum. Väldigt spritig doft. Lite tunn i kroppen. Lite brända toner i smaken annars är det mest alkoholsmak.
