Cunningham (4437) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2013

Appearance: Black color with a nice big bubbly beige head. Fine lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malt, chocolate and some fruity notes.
Palate: Thick oily body. Slightly sweet, with a mild bitterness. Creamy carbonation.
Taste: Cold coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and some fruity notes. Well hidden alcohol.
Overall impression: Well balanced and smooth. Lovely beer. And I can still not spot the difference between Imperial Stout and Imperial Strong Porter. I thought this was an Imp Stout.
Personal stats: Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
330 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Deep, rich and sweet, plenty of toffee and molasses, vanilla, chocolate, wood notes, a little booze, a bit fruity...stewed raisins and figs, very nice. Medium+ body with relaxed effervescence. Strong, rich dark chocolate, molasses, dark dried fruits, darker and blacker than the nose, still fairly sweet and friendly though, vanilla, sine oak notes; sweet with sufficient bitterness and a long, mouth-coating finish off rich chocolate and molasses. Quite good.

Freaky_tiki (524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours Scandinavian black metal dark with a consistent cap of brown sugar foam on top. Your nose will tell you this is going to be a decent porter & your taste buds will back it up. Smooth, tasty malts, plum cake, & subtle spice drive the flavour profile. A high level porter.
