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.

330 ml bottle. Black with tanned head. Infected. Thus is not supposed to be sour. Not the first infected bottle I have had from this brewery.

Barwa czarna nieprzejrzysta, obfita drobno i sredniopecherzykowa mljasnobrazowa piana. Aromat mocny, palony, kawowy. Smak bardzo mocno palony, kawowy, lekko kwasny ale wpasowujacy sie w reszte smaku. Mocne wysycenie ale chyba maja problem z dofermentowaniem bo mialem niezly gashing. W poprzednim mialem granat ;)

Bottle at KØ15. Good coffee aroma, hint of sweet jam. Black colour. Small stable dark brown head. The flavour is very roasted with a good coffee note. Fruity and grassy hop flavour, good jam. Late fresh-ground coffee aftertaste.

Bottle, KØ15. Pours cloudy dark coffee brown with airy dark tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, roast and caramel malt. Bitter, roasty flavour with sweetish kotes of chocolate and malt and touches of coffee. Roasty aftertaste. Low carbonation. Decent.

PapaVillum (841) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 10,2 % ABV, BB 15/08/2023, købt af laboko's kollega i Systembolaget Hansa i Malmö, Sverige - tak! 10. marts 2015. Helt sort olie-agtig og ufiltreret Imperial Porter med minimal moccabrun skumtop på 1/2 cm, som svinder til bette kant og overflade efter ganske kort tid. Aromaen indeholder kaffe, chokolade, lakrids og brændt malt, men også kælderaroma i gærnuancerne. Sojasauce i det fjerne. Smagen er præget af solid bitterhed og meget tør mundfølelse. Minimal sødme, hvis der er noget, men det er der, for balancens skyld. En lille frugtagtig syrlighed øger også balancen. Stor fyldig krop med minimal karbonering på næsten nul og en glat, næsten flad, konsistens. Afslutningen er tør, bitter og ret pludselig. En karakterfast Porter med et lidt for flat udtryk til at få den helt op blandt giganterne, men okay...måske er det mig, der skal have tid og modning...

Cunningham (6772) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2014
Black color with a big beige head. The big beige head was due to a really rich carbonation. The lively carbonation destroyed it a bit. To fizzy. Otherwise some cacao, chocolate and coffee. Would have been decent with a more moderate carbonation.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order, Sweden]
