bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Pungent aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and blueberry. Opaque black color, frothy 2" brown head that refuses to go away, bands of lace. Taste is bitter roasted coffee malt with light smoke. A big. bold, brew that lays easy in the belly.

IlGagario (114) - Modena, ITALY - APR 18, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore nero impenetrabile. Testa color crema di caff/marrone, da soapy (bolle larghe) a cremosa, densa, caramellata secca e amara. Carbonazione da soffice a media, pungente. Aroma cupo di caramello amaro, zucchero, toffee, ortica ed erbe amare, lontana liquirizia, crosta di pane nero, amaretto, terra e lontana torba. Gusto caramellato amaro ricco, inizialmente grasso poi decisamente secco, di amarezza molto intensa, al limite dellacre, con successiva emersione di una solida luppolatura alquanto amara ed erbacea, controbilanciato da tappeto maltato di dolci note di zucchero. Dopo beva caramellato e maltato, meno amaro, con note balsamiche sempre secche, ma pi dolci. Corpo pi che medio, con alcool ben in evidenza. La scorrevolezza discreta: si consiglia di sorseggiarla con calma, onde poterne apprezzare la struttura complessa. Trama da oleosa a lattica, mediamente grassa e terrosa, appena sticky sul finale. Ottima la sensazione di caramello amaro: una birra intrigante e dark.

butelka, warka do 23/11/20. prawie czarne niezawysoka ale bardzo ladna i ladnie zostajaca na szkle piana. aromaty nie bardzo intensywne, niemniej fajne ewidentnie, palonosc, czekolada, pralinki, ciemne owoce i tu niestety zgrzyt na koncu - bo troche rozpuszczalnika. moze pechowa warka czy butelka, nie slyszalem /czytalem, zeby ktos sie skarzyl w temacie. tez jakies chmielowe cytrusy chyba po ogrzaniu? w ustach za to juz baaaardzo fajnie. Z jednej strony slodkawe, z drugiej wytrawne, gorzkie, kawowo-czekoladowo-palone dlugie posmaki, samo piwo ma duzo ciala, najfajniejszy moment to przelykanie - wtedy przemile nuty z aromatow (bez rozpuszczalnika) sa zintensyfikowane w gardle, fajowy efekt, a la womit tęczą... zeby nie ten rozpuszczalnik w aromacie pewnie byloby ze 4.2, ale i tak klasa piwo

Black (really dark black) , with great brown head. Looks awasome. Aroma: dark chocolate, hops ( mostly cascade i think), some coca and caramel. Body is medium to light, quite dry. Flavour: coffee, roasted malts. Very bitter finish, but its nice harmonized with roastyness. Overall nice rough and expressive

HPDalen (276) - DENMARK - MAR 23, 2016
Powerful aroma of coffee and burning wood. Also dark chocolate. Pitch black with the most wonderful, solid head. Lots of bitter coffee flavour. Full bodied, after taste lingers for a long time. Whats not to like? :-)

Batavi (349) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2016
Fles gekocht bij Vinotake Waalwijk, uitgeschonken in een To Øl teku bierglas. Verassende gitzwarte kleur met een olieachtige textuur. Deze Imperial Porter heeft een zachte bruine schuimkraag, met een fijne structuur die stabiel is. Mooie aroma's van chocolade, donkere pruimen, karamel, koffie, aardse tonen en rokerige accenten van teer, zwavel en as. Het smaakpallet is licht zoet, hopbitter gebalanceerd met licht rokerige tonen. Chocolade, koffie, karamel, pruimen en rokerige notities, licht teer/as. De afdronk is vrij droog en hopbitter met een medium carbonatie en een olieachtige textuur. Zeer goede Imperial Porter, deze Black Ball van To Øl, zeker een geweldige verassing, dit tweede bier wat ik proef van deze Deense gypsy brewery. verfijnd en gebalanceerd aroma en smaakpallet. Een topbier in deze stijl, beter dan menige RIS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
