Pored from bottle to shaker glass. A black with a decent tan head and a very fine lacing. Head thins down buy lasts to end. Aroma is complex but I can pick out an earthy combo of roasted malts and smoke. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, and a growing licorice in the finish. Warming and spicy. Carbonation is soft with a thicker velvety mouth feel. I loved the changing flavors and complexity of this beer. A winner in book.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
0.5 L bottle at The Publican in Chicago, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big rye, roasted malts, smoke and a touch of earth. The flavour is medium-dry with roasted malts, coffee, spicy rye and piney hops that grow towards the finish, which is long and toasty with moderate hop bitterness. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice rye imperial porter with a generous dose of hops. 2013-12-30

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2014
Bouteille 50cl de Geers, BB 07/01/2017. Brune foncée, col moka moyen doré au verre. Arôme est malté caramel, chocolaté épais comme effluves. Pointe amer houblonnée avec une belle présence du seigle. En rétro-nasal, je note de belles pointes citronnées - agrumes. Palais est épais avec ici aussi pas mal de malts; chocolat caramel, fini terreux et ce profil distinct de seigle. Épaisseur rappelant la mélasse, grillé et café avec un fini légèrement amer et houblonné. Palais est généreux avec un côté sirop. Au final, une bière sympa mais qui manque de l’influence Terrapin surtout si on se base sur la Terrapin Rye Pale ale.

Torrefacto (1320) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Color negro con reflejos rojizos y espuma beige densa y espesa. Los aromas son de cereales tostados, ligeramente dulces. En boa entra densa y sedosa con un dulzor seco que pasa a un amargor tostado, cafeteado e igualmente seco. Muy rica.

Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a very dark brown beer with a small brown head on top. Aroma is grainy, rye and has some licorice. Flavor is very sweet with a big grainy base in it. The sweetness is backed up by a big bitter flavor in the back. Balance is very good in this beer, yet it’s missing a few components to be a great beer. Still quite good.

jmgreenuk (6957) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle at Mr Hangover’s 2014 Nieuwjaarsborrel, Den Haag and supplied by the Bier Koning, Amsterdam. Poured a deep mahogany with a round bubbly tan head. The aroma is light roasted malt and liqourice. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich smooth malt liqourice slightly alcoholic light hop palate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. A super beer from Nogne. I would not expect anything less.
