3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Headless, black body. Burned malts, cane sugar, coconut, sticky fruit and red wine vinegar. Original beer especially good as late night closer, with its characterful yet somewhat odd taste combination. I like it much more than I though I would. (33cl bottle from QV.ID)

Helt svart med rødlige kanter, helt uten skum. Kaffe, søt lakris og mørke bær i duften. Mørk sjokolade og kirsebær dominerer smaken. Helt uten kullsyre. Tykkmunnfølelse.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Still, headless, viscous with good legs and cola brown to black in colour. Nose is mocha prominant with inklings of cocoa and roasted carob, wood and earth, muscatels and aniseed. Flat, still, lifeless, viscous. Oily with plenty of roasted, chocolate malts. Vinous, with a plummy, red wine character. Restrained is the alcohol. Quite astringent. tart. sour. Husky, pasty, ashen finish. Quite light given the strength. A tad simple to be savoured. Not the best of impy’s by far!!! (33cL, BB 01/03/19, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Svart med nesten null skum. Aromaen er sjokolade, røstet malt og noe lakris. Smaken er bær, kaffe og sjokolade. Mild bitterhet og antydninger til surhet. Medium konsistens. Null karbonering...

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.

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.

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.
