COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You are holding a pure artisan craft ale, free of any additives. This is a real ale. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, so a small amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle is natural. South Plains RIP is made with North American hops to balance the huge amounts of English malts that give this dark ale it’s complex and generous flavor. Imperial Porter is a style that is higher in alcohol, bearing more flavor than traditional porters. Store this beer in a cool, dark place. When it’s young it’s very heartwarming. As it ages it will get smoother and smoother.

Bottled 330ml @Grace
Bottle was a gusher. Pitch black color, decent beige head. Medium-bodied. Slightly tart, dry woody, lots of coffee beans in the flavor. Roasted aftertaste with some alcohol. Way too dry and woody.

nazzty (906) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2013
Heavy and too reminiscent of liquor where alcohol flavor dominates against the fancy rusty coffee tones that are there.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2013
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 27 Sep 2013) Opaque black colour with creamy, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with strong black coffee, liquorice, cocoa and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of espresso, liquorice, salmiac, cocoa and a creamy finish with a generous cocoa bitterness. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Very well balanced for its strength. Very nice beer.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Bottled (thanks omhper). Turned out to be a bigtime gusher. Pitch black colour with a mediumsized brown head. Aroma is ashes, ripe dark fruits, some slight tart wooden notes. Flavour is mild tart wood, dark fruits, nuts and some herbal notes. Wellbalanced as such, but spritzy carbonation. Also has some mild toasted and liquoricelike not-too-sweet notes in the finish.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle shared with (and courtesy of) the brewers of Bådin. Has a black colour with a small, light brown head. Nice roasted aroma with nuts, brownies and dark chocolate. More roasted malt in the flavour along with some wood. Strange in a way. Has a rich mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A nice roasted ale but is a bit weird and unbalanced in my opinion.

Fizzy crown. Fruity, somewhat smoky aroma. Very smoky flavour of burnt wood and hard toasted malt. Spicy aftertaste.
