Kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum som stannar på kanten! Mycket rostade dofter och lite söt! Smaken är kaffe och lite lakrits samt en del alkohol! Bättre än väntat!

northropfrye (2838) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
Dark back, off white head, some lacing. Roasted coffee aroma, but the flavour is too subdued to be a truly great imperial stout. Good, but weak for the style.

Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Almost opaque dark brown beer. Little pale tan head. Palate is light and minerally and a little crisp. Mild fresh dark malt. Whisper of malt cream. Minerally finish. Simple stuff but okay.

Bottle, 7%. Roasted, salty, creamy aroma, hint of smoke. Black colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour is creamy and nicely roasted. Has a little salt liquorice and a hint of smoke in the finish. Good mouthfeel.

Someone brought out this beer - an Irish imperial stout was too tempting to pass up. Unfortunately it did not work all that well. I’m glad to have sampled it yet I was very happy to move on to the next open bottle.

Aroma / Appearance - The oily black base rests idly in the glass. Not quite as dark and active as a bigger imperial stout it has an indifferent look. Sweet coffee grounds and melted Hershey’s kisses stand out the most. All told it does not grab the senses completely.

Flavor / Palate - Coffee, iced hot chocolate, and a sweet edge try to catch the attention. Unfortunately it is not enough. This is respectable but missing the depth that comes from the best of the style. I am at least willing to give Porterhouse some slack with their other releases as they were good.

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle at ratebeer tasting at CBC. Pours dark brown with no head. Nose is very chocolatey and sultana forward. Molasses and heavy raisins as it warns. Kind of like a muscat. Heavy molasses in taste with a fair bit of booze. Heat is there. Dry finish. Sultana on the finish. Sharp bitterness on the end. Not my kind of stout

Dobry ale nie rewelacyjny w porownaniu do innych imperialnych stoutow. Charakterystyczna goryczka i palony slod. Troche delikatny podobny do guinnessa tyle ze z o wiele wieksza piana. trwala i czapowata po mojemu. Intensywnie geste i czarne tak jak guinnessy, ale delikatne jak na ten wymagajacy gatunek

Bottle. An Irish imperial stout? Well I never! :-) Pours a deep brown body with a ruby-hued taint and a tiny off-white head. Aroma is vinous raisiny dried fruit tones, hints of alcohol, chocolate, honey and caramel. Nice. Taste is burnt sugars, vanilla, chocolate, caramel and hints of raisins, toffee and sweet licorice. Smooth oily mouthfeel. A bit atypical, but quite nice.
