ninecats (198) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle 25 cl. 2013 edition. Color is coca-cola, one finger brown foam that disappears quickly without any lacings. Aroma is malt, cocoa, some wood. Hints of alkohol, overriped pear and a vinous tone. Taste is licorice, bitter cocoa, roasted malt and a vinous, almost sherry-like tone with wood. Ends slightly dry, bitter but with the vinous tone. Medium body, kind of thin texture for an imperial porter, albeit sticky. Average carbo, a bit too much for this style. Good, but could’ve been better to me.

On the nose: Toasty aromas of very dark rye bread, underneath dried fruit and chocolate. I can just barely smell the oak, probably wouldn’t have if I didn’t know to look for it. In the mouth: Now the aromas open up. The rye bread draws back slightly, revealing sherry-like raisins dipped in rich chocolate and some caramelly notes. The taste is appropriately bitter for the style, also showing a fair amount of roasted malt acidity, both of these balanced by caramel sweetness. On the palate the beer is a little shy of creamy with just a slight fizziness. The result’s maybe just a bit thin but on the plus side the beer finishes pretty long.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Batch 2010, BB201201, drunk 201312. Gift from SaintMatty - thanks!
Pours an almost black ruby red, but completely flat. Quite aromatic berry pour, quite blackcurranty. In the glass it’s more of an aged roasted malt, a little bit of sherry. Then again, it has probably 4 years on it. Anna thinks it’s our courtyard grapes, but for me it’s pure Pedro Ximinez sherry. Some carbonation in the mouth briefly. Toffee in the retronasals. Beautiful aged roasty malts. That ageing has worked really. Burntness nice and toasty, but not astringent or ashy thanks to the sweetness, hops pleasantly bitter and leafy with a nice little tingle even if there’s almost no flavour to them any more. Beautiful sipper. No gimmicks. Ages well.

Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, honey, muscovado sugar, vanilla. Taste is fairly complex, with bourbon notes upfront as well as vanilla, chocolate, coffee, honey, muscovado sugar and vanilla. Quite good and the best by far from Nynäshamn.
