erickok (3956) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 29, 2015
Black body, luscious rich, inviting and special. Lovely soft dark malt aroma, like quality sourdough loaf, rich milk chocolate, pine trees, damp forest and sweet rye bread. Mouth filling, dark sweetness, enough hop backup. Very fulfilling and of the highest standards. Absolutely gorgeous beer. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2015
Great pitch black colour, little to no head. Great whiskey, licorice, wood, smoky nose. Also some raisin and sour cherry. Fantastic taste, very round yet bitter, perfect balance. Just a little bit too sweet, just a little, not much... Other than that an amazing beer!

Pullo Alkosta. Kaattu snifteriin sysimustana ja melko paksuna, noin sormen vahvuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa päällimmäisenä on suklaisuus, jonka seurana on vahvaa maitokaakaota sekä salmiakkia. Alta tulee hieman rukiin omaan nenään hieman hapan viljaisuus. Moniulotteinen tuoksu. Maussa rukiin hapan viljaisuus ja mausteisuus tulee selvemmin esiin, nyt kaakao ja suklaa ovat taustalla, vaikka lopussa nousevat enemmän esiin. Jonkin verran tiettyä tammisuuttakin on mukana. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen, lähes pureskeltavan öljyinen ja keskiasteisesti humaloitu ja pitkään kestävä. Upean tuoksun jälkeen maun liika rukiisuus oli lievä pettymys, mutta hyvä imperial porter on kuitenkin kyseessä. Ruis tuo omasta mielestä tuhtiutta runkoon ja näin vahvaan olueen tuo täyteläisyys sopii oikein hyvin.

esox (1154) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Bottled. Black beer, creamy mocha head. Syrupy malt aroma, spicy rye bread, slight smokiness, light fruitiness. Slick, rich maltiness, some dark chocolate, spiciness of rye. Bready roastedness. Full bodied, silky smooth texture, low carbonation. Good stuff.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 3 Oct 2014) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice and dark rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, crisp-bread and a generous roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. The rye adds a slight spiciness to this imperial porter. Lots of taste, solid and quite powerful, but still in very good balance. Excellent beer!

Dermi (691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2015
50 cl, bottled. Pours black with a tanned head. Aroma: Fruity sweet, malt. Taste: Lingering sweet, slightly acidic (weird). Pleasant burnt bitterness. Malty, rye. Palate: Medium-full body. Decent porter, tries too much.
