Hells yea! This is megaballs deep. Smellz pretty good but his one is all about making my tongue turgid. Almost an impy stout. Creamu with the perfect amount of carbonation, soft and fat in the mouth is easier to take than hard and stiff. Some berry fruit that is not buried by the slightly bitter chocolate, solid roasted goodness, backend sweetness, brown sugar. Salivating lots. Super duper good! Faint anise and spots of ashtray. Just wonderful. Usually I’m all about aroma but not this time. Not even bothering. This tastes excellent and worth the extra skrilla.

Lovely porter, full on mouthfeel with lots of spices and toasty flavours. Looks amazing in the glass, lots of body, chocolate, coffee and some fruit. Great porter!

A dark brown to black beer, with a nice light brown head. In the nose there is coffee, malt, fruit, cherry, alcohol and hoppy. It is a medium to full bodied beer, with a very nice corbanation. The taste is coffee, chocolate, fruity and some bitter and sweet from the hops. The aftertaste is long coffee and chocolate, with a bitter finish. A very nice porter, close to a stout, very nice!! Perhaps the best from Nogne o! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a khaki head, smells very earthy (the rye) along with a nice dose of malt in the background. Taste of rye a long with some coffee along with maltyness, a lot of rye though.

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

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 (1357) - 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.
