Best before 22/03/2016. Pours a really dark brown and almost black. On top sits a small beige rim that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of roasted malt, slight peppery rye or alcohol and green hops. Taste is rich with some dry cocoa, coffee and a light lactose-like sweetness. Alcohol is pretty much completely hidden. Body is full and carbonation low to moderate. Overall a really solid imperial porter, nice after supper drink!

Bottle. Dark with large brown creamy head. Aroma first surprisingly hoppy, then adds chocolate, coffee - rather complex. Massive lacing. Full body. Sweet taste: coffee, dark chocolate, dried plums; finish more on the bitter side. Very nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Douberd (4528) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2015
(Nøgne Ø / Terrapin Imperial Rye Porter) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9% Totally black and thick pour, minimal dark brown head that builds up though, still with low retention. A thin line of lacing around the glass. Aroma has alcohol, vanilla, chocolate, light roasted character. Taste has also roasted malts, a bit pf ash on the finish, vanilla, notable alcohol. Medium thick body, good carbonation, dry and sticky at the same time on the palate. Great beer, not much difference from a well made imperial stout, I could drink this the whole day.

dnicolaescu (1685) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 17, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Medium intensity aroma of roasted malts, vanilla sweetness, some fruitiness that does not last long, chocolate and black malts, some salty smokiness? The flavour, on the other hand, is quite bold, well roasted (but not over the top), vanilla sweetness is kept well behind the hop and roast bitterness. Warming and spicy alcohol, but no proper aroma or taste of it. It is pretty much in line with Nogne’s own imperial stout, albeit a little more subdued. Not sure where the rye is behind all this roast. Not min-blowing, but still, very well done.

Lagerboy (1855) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
500 ml bottle, slow mo gusher. Hueless darkest brown, fading mocha foam. Aroma of dark roasted malt and black licorice. Heavier dark roast taste, sweet chocolate, spicy rye, black licorice. Soft carbonation, full bodied, moderately hopped. Tasty Imperial stouter porter. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
