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

Bottle.2 times drink and tastes were very different one - gorgeous soft porter with coffee and rye notes. The second - very bitter, sharp porter with a mild flavor and uninteresting taste. Estimation of the average of the total.

Unde (603) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Really dark brown colour with beige head on top. Aroma has berries, roasted malts, coffee and some rye. Taste has rye, roasted malts, berries and coffee. Strangely there is this kind of acid flavour which is quite unpleasant. Full body and light carbonation.

Black like music or oil from Norway. Nicely roasted. Oh my rye. Not too sweet nor heavy. Great.

Only a short review for now: Pours a pretty straight black Very nice aroma and thick body, good taste, only a tad too sweet. Chocolate, liquorice, baltic rye bread, caramel. Minimal brown head, soft carbonation.

erickok (4340) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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)

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 0,5 l w KiK. Jedno słowo wystarczy do określenia powyższego piwa - WSPANIAŁE. Najlepszy Porter jaki miałem okazję pić. Polecam!

Nijstrom (200) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Completely black with a small tan head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, rye bread, caramel, chocolate and a hint of liquorice. This beer is highly sweet, moderately bitter and has a bitter finish.

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!
