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.

Mooms (68) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Deep aroma of cocoa, coffee and a hint of vanilla. Opaque black, with small brown head. Taste is neither sweet nor very bitter: starts with a very bready and toasty note (like biting on a toast) and fades into very mild malty aftertaste. No hint of alcohol despite high ABV. Full body but slick mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Draught. Medium high creamy brown lasting head. Pitch black body. Sweet roasted malt caramel coffee cocoa aroma. Smooth and relatively sweet roasted malt caramel choccolate coffee liquorice vanilla flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Well balanced and the alcohol is well hidden.

_angst_ (3850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle bought through Systembolaget. Explosive gusher! Pours viscous pitch black with a huge frothy blackish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is tiny sour and malty with roasted malts, lemon juice, hay, moist soil, old coffee grounds, outdated bitter chocolate, cardboard and burnt wood. Taste is sweet, bitter, sour and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, lemon juice, hay, cardboard, burnt wood, bitter chocolate and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is dry, tiny tart, soft and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, burnt wood and hints of lemon juice. Lingering infection...

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Trevlig russin imperial Stout, härliga brända toner och en lätt beska. Skummet försvann snabbt och den är ganska vattnig i konsistensen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (921) - 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.
