Strong complex malty character balanced by noble hops, with a soft roasted touch. So drinkable!

ABS (708) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2015
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.

ClubGonzo (4726) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2015
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.

Holmen2 (1793) - NORWAY - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle on board Fridtjofen 20.07.15. Black. Small brown head. Almost no lacing. Aroma and taste of star anise, liquorice, cloves and sour black malt. Low drinkability. No carbonation.

luttonm (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2015
.33l bottle at Samo Pivo, Belgrade. Still cola, brown, very odd small soap head. Sour soy sauce aroma, sweet awful malt, some roast, still, weirdly juicy. Odd roast and sour. Terrible.

mike_77 (3942) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2015
Aroma and flavour have plenty of dark chocolate, cocoa and dark malts. Very full flavoured. Just a bit over carbonated.

Lele (249) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 5, 2015
ASPETTO: marrone scurissimo, in pratica nero impenetrabile. Schiuma scarsissima con bollicine grossolane. AROMA: molto intenso e avvolgente. Si percepiscono soprattutto del del marzapane, liquoroso e del tostato, nonché una nota di legnoso. GUSTO: in bocca è veramente squisita. Emergono subito chiari sentori di marzapane, nonché del tostato (più orzo che caffè). Anche il cioccolato fa la sua apparizione, unito a vaniglia e anche ad una nota di botte vecchia. Carbonizzazione quasi assente (l’avrei preferita con un pizzico di bollicine in più), corpo abbastanza strutturato (l’avrei preferita un po’ più corposa). CONCLUSIONE: una grande birra, veramente complessa è saporita. Se non li do il 5 pieno è per la schiuma scarsa e per alcune sensazioni in bocca che non convincono appieno. Ma per l’aroma e il gusto, ancora una volta White pony ha fatto centro!

330cc bottle. Completely flat. No bread, no bobble, nothing. Like drinking a coffee with additives. From what I read here, carbonation is really an issue. I will have to try another one. The flatest beer I have ever see...a pity, because the aromas are very nice.
