COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Wiibroe Porter (Imperial Stout) huskes stadig som verdens bedste Porter. Den blev lanceret i 1930 og fandt i en årrække også vej til udlandet, hvor den solgtes i mindre flasker. I 1996 vandt Wiibroe Porter sølvmedalje i verdensmesterskabet for ølbrygning.
Duften er præget af karamel og lakrids, ligesom øllet har en kraftig smag af både engelsk lakrids, ristet chokolademalt og karamel. Wiibroe Porter er brygget med rigelige mængder af münchnermalt og karamelmalt, der giver en dyb mørkebrun farve og lysebrunt skum.

McTapps (4566) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from trade with Bamsen78 - thank you a lot, Marcin! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with brown steady creamy head and smooth body. Aroma of raosted toast, malt and coffee. Taste of coffee, dark chocolate, toast, roast, woods, torf and vanilla. Hints of caramel. Creamy texture. Smooth and delicious to drink, enjoyed it.

tfredvik (1200) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Black body with a medium brown, long-lived head that settles as a fully lasting layer that knows how to decorate a glass with lacing. Very strong aroma that is, not surprisingly, heavy malty. I get lots of roasted notes of dark coffee, dark caramel and coffee. In addition there are dark berries, leather in the back and traces of soy sauce. Strong flavour that feels even more dark roasted than the aroma, with strong coffee in front. In addition there is warming alcohol and dark berries in the back. Moderate sweet taste with a long-lasting, quite heavy bitter finish. The bitterness is a bit too sharp, and is accompanied by hints of malty sourness. Close to full-bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very good imperial stout, and for the price it’s a bargain.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 4 years before BB date, from Spar Lønstrup, Jylland, Denmark]

jmgreenuk (4958) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle from a Copenhagen supermarket. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin frothy tan head. The aroma is rich roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and some red-berry fruit. The flavour is strong bitter with a dry earthy mineral chocolate coffee malt palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. A real find!

mzaar (1736) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2014
Flaska. Nästan helt svart med givmilt moccafärgat skum. Dofter av säd, karamell, mörk choklad och kaffe. Smakinslag av mörk choklad, soja, lakrits, kaffe och rostad malt. Sältan är underbar. Mjuk beska. Alkoholen är inte det minsta framträdande. Mycket gott.

Bottle@jazzcup. Black one finger nougat head. Roasted licorice. Heavy mouthfeel astringent but bitterness rules this ancient brew. Solid.

Lakrids og ristet malt. Sort ugennemsigtig med lækkert brunt skum. Virkelig behagelig bitterhed i eftersmagen.

Martinus (3049) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2013
Black colour, beige head. Aroma of malts, apple and caramel. Bitter flavour, roasted malts, burned sugar, light sweet note. Finish roasted malts, caramel, apple and yeast. Bit disappointing, but the bottle was opened already for a while before I got to drinking it. Not long enough to expect it to go bad, but maybe it warrants a re-rate.
(From 33cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, joes!)
