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

English: Imperial Rye Porter is a dark ale weith lots of character, brewed by Spike and Kjetil. The best of both worlds!

Smells roasty, dark chocolate and some alcohol. Great apperance, dark as midnight on a moonless night with a tan head. The taste is sharp from the rye, but with a smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced, alcohol is hidden well, but gives away some warmth. A very good beer from NØ and Terrapin, exciting and well done!

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Henrik Ol & Vinstove, Bergen tap: Pour is black with a brown head. Aroma is rye and very roasted malt, perhaps a bit burnt. Also, there is some dark chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet. It is not as bitter as was expected. Lots of roast. Finish is pretty dope. This is a well-balanced, well-covered beer. I love it when beers try new things and pull them off sexily on the first try.

This is an excellent beer. Thick and a bit smoky, it has a chewy dark chocolate flavor to it. A little milky flavors to it. Pretty good.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 08/09/2012. Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lace on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Medium to full body with a roasty malt character and notes of hops, coffee and anise. The finish is mildly bitter coffee and licorice. Above average Porter overall.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Comes out of the bottle a deep, warm sable with a very thick tan head that sticks around for a bit and leaves some generous lacing. The sample I got fizzed quite a bit, but at least I didn’t get a miniature Old Faithful the way I have on occasion. Rich, smoky aroma has notes of molasses, quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee. Lip-smacking flavor fills the mouth with roast malt, quality coffee, caramel, wood, licorice and hops plus a noticeable alcohol nip. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has good fizz and leaves a slightly sweet, slightly hop bitter, smoky and tingly finish. The offspring of Terrapin and Nogne-O is a beautiful child!

jaghana (3695) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a dark beer with low brown head. Nose is sweet like, on caramel, roasted malt and roasted barley, burnt caramel and licorice. Aroma is on roasted malt with dark chocolate notes, very creamy, dark coffee, licorice, dried gapes, peppery and metallic hops. Long roasted notes at the finish, very near the usual imperial stout.

deyholla (6483) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 11, 2012
On tap. Pours black with a thick creamy brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malt with a hint of of creamy bitter chocolate and underlying rye. Flavor begins with a note of creamy chocolate that is backed by roasted malts and a growing rye note underlying.

Benzai (7218) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2012
50cl bottle thanks to Joes. Pitch black, opaque color, no head. Smell dark and roasted malts, moccha, dark chocolate. Taste dark and roasted malts, moccha, actually would say oatmeal instead of rye. Thick texture, medium to full body, medium carbo.

Bottle thx to joes. Pitch black, opaque colour with a quickly gone light brown head. Smells coffee, roasty, dark chocolate. Mostly coffee and mocca. Tastes coffee, mocca, dark chocolate. Very silky, smooth, velvet and thick feel. Low carbo, full body.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a very dark brown / black with a medium tan head. Aroma of cocoa powder, oats, rye and light roasted - the rye and cocoa are most prominent. Flavour brings out the rye above anything, with secondary notes of baker’s chocolate, some coffee and medium roasted malt. Full-bodied, very soft palate, with very harsh rye on the finish. Could be confused for a harsh black IPA, though the rye is in place of the hops. Quite solid, though harsh.
