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!

Pours black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, licorice, caramel, coffee and spice. Slick palate. Aftertaste is round, sweet, bitter licorice and dark chocolate. Overall: Very nice. The rye creates a nice spiciness to this Nordic porter.

Aroma: 7/10. One big note of chocolatey-roast malts. Not complex, but wonderfully evocative, intense aroma. Yum. Appearance: 5/5. Pours a nice black with a thin yellowey-tan head and long lacing down the glass. Taste: 10/10. Wow. Just the right sour up front, sweet in the middle, and chocolate-coffee-ash in the back. A great licorice-ey finish that then goes to a strong coffee-chocolate-metallic-bitter-hops thing. I can barely put this down and I want the next sip. Palate: 4/5. The finish is a little too intense on the hops for my tastes, but that’s the only fault I can find. Body is great, silky-smooth and great on the tongue. A little astringency that lingers and burns. Overall: 17/20. Wow. What a beer. This is easily the best porter I’ve ever had. I haven’t been entirely moved by Nogne’s offerings in the past, but this is a champion beer, right here.

Coffee, nuts, chocolate and wood in the aroma. Black with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a fantastic Imperial Porter, well balanced, well hidden alcohol, and very smooth on the palate.

Enormous thanks to Nikola for bringing it from Norway and sharing with us! Poured a blackish brown body with an off white head. The aroma is complex, oily, malty, some (rye) whiskeyish notes - alcohol, orange liqueur... Slightly smoky taste, bacon, rye, orange liqueur, a bit fresh, light roastiness, full creamy body, lovely citric note, a superb, tasty beer marred by a light note of alcohol, perhaps, though I’m sensitive to that. Again, great job!

Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, caramel, chocolate, liquorice and rye. Taste is high sweet leading to a roasty finish. Nice.

PotjeBier (1762) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
On tap @ In De Wildeman. Almost black color. Short light beige head. Aroma’s: roasted malts, cola. Retronasal there’s lots of chocolate, roasted malt, berries/cherries (dark red fruit), something undefinable ??? Flavor is moderate sweet, chocolate, light mocha. Body is medium to full. Velvetty mouthfeel. Finishes with lots of roast and moderate bitter. Not always a fan of berries/cherries flavor in dark beer but this was well done.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of alcohol soaked raisins, roast malt and dark chocolate. Full body, flavour much as the aroma, fudge and lots of berries.

Grosse mélasse chocolatée et onctueuse qui cache très bien son alcool. Une infusion houblonnée ajoute également de la complexité et une finale fruitée.
