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.

Bottle, bought @ systembolaget, hyltebruk. Mega gusher... All over the living room :-( the 10 cl that went into my glass is black with a thin beige film head. Aroma has roasted malts, dark chocolate, light metallic, some tar and mild acetone. Medium carbonation, fairly dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has quite a bit of viniousness, dark roasted malts and some plums. Light smoky towards the end. Also feels a bit light in the finish.

Foam is quite tremendous in this Imperial Porter from the Swedish brewery South Plains. Thick and nougat colored foam is a tremendous damper for flavor, but a little sharp tones coffee break anyway through the foam layer. The beer is thick, almost oily, but release a strong taste of good coffee and light tones of dark bitter chocolate. It is a powerful porter with very high volume and filling pleasant taste of dark rye bread. This is not a porter who I would recommend to beer drinkers who not normally like porter. It is a powerful and aggressive porter who offers everything a real porter fan is seeking. The coffee is the main theme, chocolate and some licorice follows in the background. It is definitely a porter who is among the fiercest I have so far tasted. I seems to like the strong and almost chewable stouts / porters, but I must admit that I love it.

Defreni (2860) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
Flaske. Sort let asket øl. Stort skumhoved der er mørk mokkafarvet. Meget hårdt ristet og masser af amerikansk humle. Ikke balanceret og lettere kedelig for de mange procenter

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 ;)

MiP (14488) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2015
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 (678) - 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...
