SlackerMads (2011) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized light brown head. Nose is syrupy with some roasted malt. The flavour is surprisingly hoppy; herbal, honey with the malt more in the background giving notes of molasses, grain, dark dried fruit, toffee. Also some earth and wood in there. Medium/full body, oily texture, ok carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Feels a bit syrupy and unrefined.

Not really any coffee bitterness. Feel: thin mouthfeel but just like a porter should be. Medium low carbonation. Overall: very nice beer. Not overly malty. First drank: home 4/13/15 Vintage:

Small head with minor lacing. Aroma of chocolate, booze, and some vegetal and syrupy malt off-aromas, unfortunately. Flavor: better and more complex - chocolate, booze, vegetal off-flavor, smoke, licorice, cream. Good, but could have been better. Not my favorite impy porter, and I love this style.
