En sparad 2012. Fantastiskt hårt skum! Jag upplever det som den här blivit lite råare jämfört med ett år sedan. Rejäl strävhet och beska, mer kaffe än frukt. Nu mer en julklassiker!

Vignale (2004) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Flaska från SB. Julöl 2012 och alltså drygt ett år gammal. Närmast kolsvart med hög beige skumkrona. Känns på doft att ölet mognat bra. Söt torkad frukt, rostade nötter, madeira kompletterar chokladen, honungen, det mörka sockret och kaffet. Först en fruktig smak med dadlar och fikon med alkoholvärme. Men snart en rejäl beska som starkt kaffe, bitter choklad och aningens chilihetta. Fin rostade smaker bra balans och en maffig beska som aldrig gör det inställsamt. Fantastiskt gott.

Bottle from Systemet. 2013 ed. Charcoal black with a very firm head like espressofoam. Heavy nose with caramell and malt. Dark chocolate with coffee and treacle. Indeed a very nice Imp porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansalon (1286) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2013
2012 edition, cellared for a year. Pours black with a two inch fairly compact tan head. Comparing this head-to-head with the 2013 edition. The aroma just explodes! Lovely deep caramel tones, cognac, figs, dates, spices, honey, burnt sugar. The 2013 by comparison, is somewhat flat yet still good with more hop-centered tones of orange, citrus, peach, and very fresh. Taste then! The 2012 edition is quite fresh, with honey, orange, citrus, figs, caramel, dates, spices. Aftertaste sees some alcoholic notes along with some spices. 2012 one is more deep, with caramel and burnt sugar to the fore, along with honey, muscovado sugar, figs, spices. Aftertaste sees that alcohol again, along with vanilla and slight cocoa notes. Pick several up and cellar. Did not think it would age this well. (Rating reflects a mix of these two).

Franzen (305) - SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2013
Malty chocolate aroma with some caramell as well as some hoppy citrus.
Dark brown with great beige head
Some chocolate in the taste that kinda quickly is interupted by a great bitterness. The finish is bitter and coffe-y.
Medium to full body with a bit to much carbonation
It is nice with such a hoppy and bitter porter, However it is to carbonated

Bottle. Black with a big creamy beige head. Aroma is citrus, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Sweet and hoppy taste with notes of licorice, grape, citrus, coffee, soya. Medium body, highly carbonated. Finish is more bitter than sweet. Style description should be "imperial black ipa".

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle @ home via the good ole rotbox. I’m guessing this was tossed via courtesy of Nisse666 or _angst_ . Tack! Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown, lasting head. Fairly roasty, light tar, anise, honey, slight fig/raisin aroma. Somewhat sweet, burnt dark chocolate malty, coconut, a bit woody, piney bitter hoppy flavor with some residual bitterness on the finish. Pretty big beer but still fairly well balanced.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Best before 2015-12-31
Black color with large brownish head, persistent, leaving behind a nice lace. Aroma of roasted malts with some chocolate; evident resiny hops, a bit citrusy too but hidden, hop sweat. The mouthfeel is quite dry and sharp; roasted malt flavor with too strong liquorice edge; strong bitterness, with some citrusy hops.
Better defined as Black IPA; brutal and monodimensional flavor, without elegance.
