Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a very frothy tan head. Aromas are a wonderful mix of chocolate, charcoal, a bit of dark fruit.. a little more burnt than I expected and I’m liking it. Flavor is very astringent and scorched... especially up front. It’s almost like sucking on acidic charcoal or something for a second before things get a little more under control. Finish is decidedly hoppy... kind of a resin kick at the tail end that is interesting. I think a bit more residual sugar would really help this beer out and help smooth out the transition from start to finish. Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2017

Pours dark brown, with ruby reflections and thin creamy head. Smells like roasted fruit and cocoa, with some smoke. Dry cold roasted cocoa in the mouth, with a nice bitter finish. Good one pilsnerrogge (2959) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2017

Pours black with ruby highlights. Small head. Roasted aroma with big chocolate character. Also some coffee. Smooth mouth feel. Roasted flavour with coffee and chocolate followed by a big, hoppy bitterness.
Bottle from Systembolaget (6.3%) A dark cloudy beer with a taste of coffee. It wasn't my kind of beer even if I like coffee

Mörkbrun/svart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mycket kaffe, choklad och lite lakrits. Torr bra beska EerieDrinks (214) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2017
2 finger frothy, light tan head.
Deep, very dark brown beer.
Aroma is bakers chocolate, dark rye bread, nuts, light caramel, very light spices and dark roasted coffee with a clear note of citric hops. Really pleasant and has a ’fireplace’ vibe to it.
Taste is fresh yeast, coffee grounds, light bakers chocolate and some hops at the back. Anti-climactic to say the least but still good.
Medium-thick mouthfeel. Medium-high, lingering and passive bitterness. Semi-oily.
Rich and creamy. Mouthfilling. Juicy in a IPA sort of way.
Overall: A good Imp. Porter with the achilles heel being the taste, it just feels way too gentle and one-dimensional. The decently sized hop notes, however, makes the beer feel a bit more interesting and it still manages to be a good beer, all in all. cglans (248) - - JUN 22, 2017

Flaska från SB. En Old Style India Porter. Svart i glaset men fina toner av mörk brun/kastanj när jag håller det mot ljuset. Tjusigt fingerhögt beiget skum. Välrostade och brända toner i doften av kola, toffee, läder, aska, tobak, rostade ekflis, mörkt socker, mörk torkad frukt, mörka bär och bitter mörk choklad. Mellanstor, fyllig o härligt rund och len kropp. Även i smaken brända och torra toner av kola, aska, bränd malt. Lätt syrlig. Medium beska. Riktigt trevlig! jobe977 (104) - Töreboda, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2017
