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.

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.

(Bottle 33 cl) Pitch black with a brownish head. Very full-bodied, extremely thick fluid - almost tar-like! Very dry, roasted notes but also some underlying sweetness. Very hoppy finish. The strong alcohol doesn’t really shine through. 291099

Ok, what to rate for my 1000th rating? I really wanted to pick a special beer to celebrate my "anniversary" so I decided to open this, Wiibroe Porter Imperial Stout Vintage 1987 (BB: May 88), and share it with my beer geek brother and a couple of beer geek friends! I got it earlier this year from a collector who had kept it since back then and knowing that it might have been displayed on an open shelf in a light and warm room I was quite anxious to try it, fearing that it had turned skunky or something even worse. But man, was I in for a nice surprise.....

Pours a rather thin tan head on a pitch black body. Heavy and full aroma with lots of chocolate, dark fruit, plum, vanilla, oranges and a tone of coffee. Flavor is very thick and heavy. Nice sweet chocolaty and malty with a woody tone (probably from the age). The beer tastes a little old and over the top but knowing that it probably came from the above-mentioned shelf I must say it matured very well. Still a tasty and very interesting stout and I do understand why it is the highest rated Danish beer (damn Carlsberg for killing it a couple of years ago.....).

Best before ’03: Pouring a thick, black liquid with a cappuccino-coloured head. Extremely roasted aroma. Salty, watery and dry. Malt, chocolate and roasted coffee in flavour and finish. Smooth and dry palate. Liquorice, mocca and coffee-beans in aftertaste. Great mouthfeeling. Fantastic brew!
