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!

500 ml bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a pitch black color with a medium beige head. A dark malty nose, chocolates, anise, some rye. The flavor is wonderful: dark German rye bread, some chocolate, dark fruit, smoke, spicy at times, loads of bitter dark chocolate. Home run! There is a load of barrel character in this really (is it BA?). Sweet, mellow round flavors. Very good.

On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD. Opaque, near black with a thin light tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, licorice, toffee and rye spiciness. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, charcoal, vanilla, sweet mocha, licorice and pumpernickel. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Storm_Warning (80) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Well this is an incredible beer! The aroma is sweet and spicy, fruity and of chocolate. Pours as a thick black vessel with a cascading yet restrained brown sugar coloured head which dissipates to a thin ring around the glass. Tastes sweet and peppery with full chocolate malt character, smooth earthy hop notes and a lasting rich fruity malt finish. Full bodied with a thick oily texture that makes this like velvet on the tongue. Overall this is a truly decadent beer, rich and smooth and very complex, incredible! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadie (800) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Noir très sombre avec une grande mousse marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié, vanille, chocolat, chêne, seigle et du levure. Le goût est d’abord du chocolat, vanille et chêne. Ensuite, c’est du café et malt torréfie avec une finition d’une amertume moyenne. Un palais un peu onctueux mais avec assez carbonatation que ce n’est pas épais. Super bonne!

Pitch black beer with a pretty solid tan head, leaves some lacing. Complex aroma: chocolate, coffee dark malts. Taste: sweet, slightly smokey alcohol, bitter fenolic Moutfeel: soft, a bit oily, effervescent. Although it appears a bit too sweet in my opinion, still a excellent and well-brewed beer.

BOTTLE (BATCH#1086) Poured very black with a big thick tan head. Got nothing but sticky pudding, caramel from the nose & taste, very thick body to go with it... Good one to finish on... sourced from Cellarbrations Capel

Very nice porter with strong cola aroma. Also some coffee. A bit smokey too. Solid and good beer. Probably Norways best brewery. Not cheap either. This one was about 11$ in Norway.

50 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a little sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, milk chocolate, pine, and citrus - with a bitter finish.
