Norwegian: Imperial Rye Porter er et mørkt og karakterfylt øl brygget av Spike og Kjetil. Det beste fra to bryggerier!

Smell of tar and licorice. Very dark brown with brown head. Aroma of coffee, tar, salmiak and ash. Next to no carbon. Very sweet. Some berries also.

Nice rich color and head. Decent taste with coffee undertones in the aftertaste. Not the best porter I've had, not the worst. Need to try more rye porters to judge this one properly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Interesting aroma. Some hint of rye but nothing of a porter. I'm not a porter fan but this adds a bit of chewiness. Has a long funky aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown color with a medium-sized tan head. Roasted malt, licorice, dark fruits and coffee in the aroma. Flavor is roasted malt, licorice, coffee, some rye and dark fruits. Medium to full body, quite smooth mouthfeel. Dry and bitter finish. Very tasty porter.

On tap at Frisco Taphouse ($13/10oz): pours an opaque oily black with a creamy froth of beige head. Has a rich, sweet dark caramel malty nose with a touch of toasted rye and dark chocolate. Starts with robust fullness and plenty of chewy sweet dark malts with a hint of smoke and some raisins before a semi-sweet dark chocolate finish. True to style with good complexity.

500 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, spicy rye, and some molasses. It tastes like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, rye, coffee, wood, and a bit of licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and has moderate carbonation. It’s also smooth and easy enough to drink. I think this is a good overall brew, I’d certainly buy this again. $9.99 a bottle.

500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Rich rye aroma, loevly full body. Sticky rye-bread everywhere. Yummy body, just so scrumptious. I love the rich rye that permeates the body. Fuck, fuck, fuck, this is a great beer.

500ml bottle (as a Bday present from FatPhil & Anna, thanks). Deep brown, almost black color. Tiny brown head surrounds the glass. Malty, roast, licorice, hops, grassy, floral aroma. Deep deep roast, malty, grainy, slightly sweet, grassy hops in flavor. Alcohol in aftertaste. But still wonderful beer. Thank you!
