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.

oh6gdx (20869) - 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.

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.

Black color with generous brownish creamy head. Very nice aroma of roasted malts and quality coffee; and hops; the alcohol doesn’t disturb either. Smooth mouthfeel, with a good structure; the evident roasted malt structure is blending with good chocolate; the general feeling is quite roasty and dry; good hopping, both for the strength and for the contribution of resins. The final is good, not just the roasted malt in it, but also the claw of the hops.
Very good and smooth modern example.
