yespr (40865) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small orange glare and a fully gone head. Whisky like and roasted malty aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a smooth chocolate base. Slight alcohol burn out of the roasted malt and chocolate flavours. Smooth yet warming but not without some edge to it.

Ungstrup (34715) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of over ripe fruits and a bit of oxidation, leading to a dry fruity finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Theydon_Bois (17266) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle at home - 08/06/12 thanks to Sam for an IP trade in Denver. Pours a very dark brown approaching black but with reddish hues when held to light and with a dirty tan head. Dark malts, chocolate, molasses on the nose and a whiff of whiskey. Tastes of burnt caremalised sugars, malt, chocolate and licquorice. A well balanced beer with a fullish body but very drinkable.

yngwie (16535) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle, shared by papsoe. A clear, dark brown pour leaves a small beige head. Mocha, chocolate, dried fruits, some vanilla and spirits and a little note of oxidation in the aroma. The flavor is on the mocha and chocolate side, with some oxidation and alcohol. Is there a touch of dms too? Medium body and a coffee-bitter finish. A quite nice one, and sure not a dirty old beer.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
A: The beer pours a very dark brown color, nearing black in the right lighting, with a modest brown head. S: Plenty of roast and coffee on the nose. A nice hit of chocolate and maybe even a bit of smokiness as well. The rye provides an interesting spicy quality, but I don’t pick up the whiskey too much. T: The barrel aged portion comes through more in the flavor. A hint of vanilla goes well with the heavy roast, chocolate, and coffee flavors. A nice balance of sweet and bitter. M: The body is maybe a bit on the thin side for what you would expect from an imperial porter, but a low smooth carbonation redeems things on the mouthfeel. D: Another Tyranena beverage that does not disappoint. Glad I have another one of these to enjoy at a later date.
