2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 Nice flavours but extremely over carbonated. Hard to enjoy due to prickly/aggressive carbonation. Very gassy. Other reviews seem to note a lack of carbonation so maybe they over compensated. Sort your shit out.. This beer ain’t cheap. Edit: for some reason I decided I would give another batch of this beer a go.. It was dead flat! No carbonation at all. It also tasted odd like red fruits, soy sauce and had a off red wine like sourness. Don’t know why this beer is rated so high.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a massive growing head that decided it needed to launch itself out of the bottle upon being opened.
Nose shows liquorice and roasted malt along with a phenolic note and some chocolate.
Flavours include more dry roasted malt and liquorice sweetness along with soft booze and a herbal/phenolic character again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Pours close to black, with a red hue. No head. Not even a fizz when the bottle was opened. Red fruit, red berries, cherry and alcohol nose. Sweet, some bitterness. Medium body. No carbonation at all, completely flat. Red fruit, plum, cherry, some malt, sugar, caramel flavour. Smoke. Cold coffee. I really like Imperial Porters, but this one was quite disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a small off-white head. Nose is ashes, coffee, leather, mild licorice and hints of grains and bread. Taste is cold coffee, licorice, biscuits, bread and hints of caramel, grains and chocolate. Medium to full body, soft to missing carbonation. Hard to believe no coffee was added to this beer, seems to be full of it. Suffers from the lacking carbonation. Fair enough, but nothing more.
