Volfas Engelman iš savo istorijos paveldėjo puikų tamsų alų prabangiu vardu Imperial Porteris. Jame sudraugaudami apyniai beigi skrudinti salyklai apdovanojo šį alų tamsaus raudonmedžio spalva ir suteikė jam tokį karališką skonį, kad niekur daugiau nesutiksi. įprastai porterio tipo alūs yra klampūs ir sunkūs, šis yra kitoks Tik 6% stiprumo. Jo išskirtini skonį ir spalvą suformavo puikus komponentų derinys: šviesus lietuviškas pilzeno’, vokiškas karamelinis ’carą red" salyklai, bei „Perle* ir „Magnum" apynių duetas. Volfas Engelman Imperial Porteris itin malonus ir geriamas su lengvumu Tą paliudijo Hanza dienų šventės svečiai. Jie taip gausiai gėrė šį alų (ypač užsieniečiai) kad paskutiniąją dieną jo resursai baigėsi ne tik pas prekiautojus, bet ir bravore iki naujos partijos subrandinimo.

This has a light feel to it, slight root beer sweetish feel. Whats good is it’s drinkability, to quench one’s thirst. Body is not overly complex.

Nothing unexpected given the style, fairly good actually-less cloyingly sweet than it could be, though a bit more hops than I’d prefer. Quite drinkable

Bottle from WB Stores, West Bromwich. In context, this is pretty good. In other contexts, it isn’t quite so impressive. Life is confusing. This is warming, very drinkable. A bit too sweet, a bit too thin, but overall: a nutty, smooth, tangy, sticky Baltic - which is a style I really enjoy.

Holmen1 (4351) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Flaske, i hagestuen hos Petro: vakker, rødlig ravfarge med fint beige skum som varer. Aroma og smak i den søtlige retning, mørk karamell&kandis med hint av kaffe. Kledelig bærsødme (hjemmelaget bringebærsyltetøy?). Myk bitterhet i ettersmaken.

DraftDodger (848) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2015
Vilnius 4/10 2015. 50 cl bottle from local supermarket. Pours dark copper red with off-white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam with some lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Coffee and mild bitterness. Soft carbonation and creamy palate. Flavour is sweet and a little sugary. Coffee, chocolate and medium bitterness. Aftertaste is suprisingly short. For a porter produced in the Baltics suprisingly poor.

Moravius (1002) - Beijing, CHINA - SEP 29, 2015
Flasche (568 ml) vom Friendship Store, Sanlitun, Peking. - Tiefes Kastanienbraun, klar. - Nase gut dunkelmalzsüß aber nur schwach röstig, etwas Cola. - Antrunk eher dünn mit deutlichem Röstmalz, Kaffee, Nuß und viel Karamelsüße, aber allzu glatt, ohne Wucht und Tiefe. Gut rezent, für ein Porter ausgesprochen dünn. Schwacher Abgang mit mehr Dunkelmalzsüße aber nur einer ganz schwachen Andeutung von Hopfenherbe. - Zwar etwas röstiger als ein bayerisches Dunkles, aber schwächer gehopft als ein gutes fränkisches Lager. Für ein richtiges Porter viel zu dünn und mild.

GuideDogSaint (1006) - Xiamen, CHINA - SEP 12, 2015
Unexpected country and style rate from Merry Season on the second floor of the shopping centre with Carrefour near Siming Nan Lu, Xiamen. One pint bottle pours dark red brown with an off white head. Aroma of malt with a little roast and coffee. Sweet finish.

lokis333 (280) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Deep dark chestnut colour, with almost no foam. Smells weak but quite pleasant. Tastes of burned malt with very little aftertaste.
