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.

PapaVillum (630) - 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 (5482) - 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]

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2014
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.
