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.

Bouteille 33cl de Systembolaget Malmö, batch#3, BB 2014-07-08. Brune foncée, col léger moka, doré au verre. Arôme est fortement axé sur le malt avec un rétro caramel et chocolaté modéré. Palais offre une belle profondeur de moka et chocolat, le tout étant riche et les 10% se font bien présent. Malt cara, pâle, crystal? et une note épicée venant du seigle.

Cuso (7554) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle fromt rade with Cunningham, many thanks Henrik. Almost black colored beer with huge beige head towering over my glass. Roasted malt, dark chocolate with distinct tartness in aroma. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice in taste overlapped with strong brett tartness. I am not sure if this was intended, but it turned out to tasty beer.

daje (3795) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle. Black body with a lively growing tanned head, so lively we feared infection, but luckily it didn’t taste infected at all. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, ash, plums. Taste of strong coffee with chocolate, almonds, light fruity, strong bitterness with a nice though shorta aftertaste of coffee and alcohol. Not bad in any way.

Gushy bastard! Opaque dark brown beer,.small pale tan head. Palate is airy and light with fine carbonation. The dark malt is rich but never too roasty or bitter. Little coffee and a light tang. Whisper of dark fruits. More coffee before an airy finish. All right.

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.

_angst_ (4406) - 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...

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
