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.

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2007
This reborn baby pours jet black in my glass and forms a dense, tan but rather weak head. The aroma is slightly metallic, put otherwise dominated by roasted grains and hops. Quite clean... The taste is roasty, coffeish and a bit burned. Theres a slight note of liqourice. The bitterness is nice and full. And both from the hops and the black malts. The only real flaw in this beer is the carbonation. It’s a bit too aggresive and is in stark contrast to the finer nuances of this incredibly smooth and round beer. It’s a real treat at the stupidly low price of 10 kr (about 1,6 USD)

Pours black with a large light brown head. Smells of sweet malts and caramel. Sweet and slightly tart. Malty flavors with some roasted coffee. Hint of sweet fruits. Ever-so-slightly portish. he beerhas a very little hint of sweet liquirish. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Long dry finish with a slight burning alcohol sensation. Nice, relatively mild Imperial Stout. Thanx to Wiibroe for taking this one up again.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle. What a wonderful Imperial Stout for the prise of 10 Danish kroner. Quit impressive. Average creamy dark head that mostly lasted. Left some good lacing. Quit murky and black coloured. Heave malt with notes of coffee, molasses, chocolate, roasted, nutty. But also notes of horse blanket, toffee, smoke, tar, liquorice. Full bodied with a light oily texture and a flat carbonation. Moderated sweet with balanced bitterness to it. Bitter-sweet finish with an average duration. Quit good Baltic Porte. Welcome back!

Saaz (3) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2006 does not count
One of the worlds best stouts is back. I love this style and Wiibroe Imperial stout has it all. Not to dry not to sweet, well balanced alcohol level and a smooth medium to full body. The Danish microbreweries could learn a lot from this beer

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 8, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Its back! After being out of production for 8 years (when the original Wiibroe brewery closed) Carlsberg has now re-launched it. Black colour with a big long lasting creamy light brown head. Aroma of well roasted almost burned malts, coffee, bitter chocolate and hops. Great flavour of the dark roasted malts, good bitterness, coffee, prunes, raisins and a little tobacco. Long dry aftertaste with some alcohol. A super great Imperial stout! 7th of January 2007: It still kicks butt big time!

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Bottle... best-by-date = May 1988... Pitch black ale with a small, well-tanned head. The nose provides notes of Play Dough®, chocolate, soy sauce and caramel. Sweet, chocolatey flavor. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Finishes chocolatey and sweet. An oldie, but a goody. Thanks to argo0 for sharing his bottle of this vintage brew!

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 17, 2006
33cl bottle, best-by date of May 1988 (!!), many thanks to argo0 for sharing this one. Pours a pitch-black appearance with a miniscule tannish head and slight lacing. Raisins, dark chocolate, vanilla smokiness in the aroma. Slightest oxidation, medium-to-full mouthfeel, bitter chocolate dominates; raisiny, complex, layered palette; would benefit from slightly higher levels of carbonation (but at least it still has carbonation!). A great beer that’s held up remarkably well.

330 ml bottle. Well aged sample (but I forgot to write down the BB date). Jet black body with small, light brown head. Pours with a thick fluid. Nice roasted coffee aroma with dried prunes. Flavor is sweet malt, chocolate, dry fruit and some vanilla. Sweet and bitter aftertaste, harmonic balanced alcohol level.
