3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brought the 1.5L "Hans Across the Water" version to my parents for Christmas, was a big hit with every one. Big bold dark brown body with large hard to control crown....the pour took forever. Aroma was mildish but descent, roasted malts with sweet coffee, hints of vanilla........or is the beer description screwing with my mind........man did I ever take piss poor notes on this beer. Seriously I’ll have written down five times is coffee, sweet, and roasted malts....I was sober to.....kids running around every where. I did truly enjoy this beer, wish I took better notes I trust my number though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown almost black colour with a light tan head. Roasted malt, bitter chocolate and vanilla aroma. Treacle sweetness, roasted malt and coffee bitterness. Some alcohol comes through and has a burnt grain ashy bitter finish. A little too much for a summer evening.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vanilla and coffee aroma as you would expect, hints of chocolate and alcohol too. Pours almost black with a tan head. Rich flavour of coffee and vanilla, much sweetness and bitterness though nicely balanced. Full body, quite flat. Bitter finish. Great beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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.
