Pours dark with medium off white almost light brown head Aromas of mocca, dark chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, hints of cocoa Medium bodied but wee bit watery, nice long high bitter finish. Nice coffee and chocolate tones. Nice Imperial Porter that might need a year in the cellar.

Butelka. Barwa brunatna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana beżowa kremowa drobna obfita, znaczy szkło. W aromacie alkoholowa nuta śliwki w czekoladzie. W smaku czuć alkohol, goryczka kakaowa na poziomie średnim. Piwo średnio nasycone, z krtkim alkoholowo goryczkowym posmakiem.

dhatton (127) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2015
On tap at the Jeffrey, pours pitch black body with thick, frothy tan head. Malty aroma; coffee, licorice, and a hint of smoke. Dark chocolate, very roasty, rich flavors of molasses and blackberries. Big hop taste and bitter finish, pleasant surprise for the style. Outstanding all around.

ElDesmadre (2010) - Mikołw, POLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle from Plovmand, thanks! Dusty chocolate and roast, subtle smoked notes, not really much in the hop department. Light sweet, velvety smooth. Nice flavour depth combined with a high drinkability. Excellent.

Bosskie (509) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
Pitch black beer with a greyish brown weak head. Transparent with ruby highlights. Smell is deliciously dark and full. Milk chocolate, coffee, leather, roasted nuts balanced against bitter resin and citrus peels. Sourwood, slightly metallic. Raisins. Taste is bitter fizziness with subtle sweetness. Oily mouth feel with an ashy bitter finish.

przemek836 (14) - POLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Kolor: czarny, nieprzejrzysty. Piana: ofita, zwarta, drobnopęcherzykowa, bardzo trwała, utrzymując się do końca. Zapach: intensywna czekolada, karmel, spora paloność, wyczuwalne chmiele amerykańskie, żywica, lekka cytrusowość, bardzo fajne połączenia. Na drugim planie śliwki w czekoladzie, rodzynki. Smak: słodkie, gładkie, aksamitne. Goryczka wysoka ale bardzo krtka. W smaku głwnie czekolada, śliwki, rodzynki i wyczuwalna kawa, świeżo zmielona. Lekka kwaskowość od ciemnych słodw. Bardzo gęste i bogate a zarazem nie jest bardzo ulepkowate poprzez kontrująca goryczka. Goryczka żywicza i lekko alkoholowa ale w przyjemny sposb. Wysycenie spore, mogłoby być niższe. Piwo oblepia podniebienie i gardło i pozostawia przyjemny likierowy, czekoladowo-kawowy posmak. Genialne piwo.
