Danish: En stor og kraftig Porter med en umiskendelig og lækker kaffearoma. En blød og lækker øl, selvom den med sine knap 10 % er en kraftig herre. Både Cascade og Simcoe skinner fint igennem de ristede elementer og blander sig dejligt med den ristede aroma og kaffen.

English: It’s a beer that’s been thought about for quite some time – actually since the brewers first visit to Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB, Canada a few years back, and finally I did it – I manned up and did it! After a whole freaking day of brewing coffee for this beer I can truly say it is Craft. If not devoted to the product who in their right mind would brew hundreds of litres of coffee for a beer? The result is a big and bold smooth Porter with discrete vanilla and coffee notes.
Hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black, Vanilla and coffee.

DraftDodger (882) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2016
Copenhagen 22/5 2016. 33 cl bottle from Irma. Black label with something that looks like light effects from the 1960s. Pours opaque dark brown with light beige head. Moderate lacing. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Intense aroma of roasted malts, coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate and a little alcohol. Soft carbonation and thick creamy slightly sticky palate. Flavor is quite well balanced despite the abundance of sweetness. A good coffee bitterness provides the necessary counterweight not to make this brew nauseating. Nice porter. I would not drink it out of thist. But with the fairly high ABV and very distinct presence of coffee you could argue that this makes an coffee and a cognac after dinner redundant.

Wirklich geschmacklich sehr schönes Stout. Körper toll, im Glas wirklich hübsch anzusehen. Geruch deutlich Kaffee, Vanille ist zu erahnen. Reife Früchte und Toffee! Geschmacklich das gleiche Bild! ABER: bei ca 16-18 Grad tritt die Vanille in den Vordergrund! Deutliche Verbesserung bei höherer Temperatur. Ansonsten sehr stark und alkoholisch in der Nase. Sehr gutes Bier! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (6989) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 19, 2016
12oz bottle via Secret Santa pours a watery, deep cola brown with some ringing, off white head. Nose has what’s promised, malt and molasses, vanilla bean, cola, rootbeer. Flavor is the same, malt, some toast, molasses, vanilla, rootbeer. Finishes a touch sweet.

The title says it all. An Imperial Porter with coffee (a lot of it) and vanilla.Maybe too much coffee, and maybe too harsh. Overall, its pretty good.

At Guevara & Lynch. At lunch with Miguel. Waiting for the food. Very easy to drink and pleasant to the taste and mouth. Very dangerous because of its high ABV
