Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Pours lovely, clear redish black with a small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is roasted, mild chocolate, soft liqourice. Medium carboantion, nicely dry, fairly creamy yet still light. Flavour has dark chocolate, light liqourice, hazelnut, softly vinious. Light ashy roasted dry in the finish. Mid-palate has a lovely fat caramel feel like English Barleywines. Very good.
Bottle at Delaney’s. Not an Imperial Porter as advertised. Black body with no head. Carbonation significant. Tad below average mouthfeel. SOurness to it, but also some roast and chocolate. Drinkable, but not very. The distributor called this a summer porter. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Interesting brew. Cola, chocolate, coffee, light roast, tobacco, dark frut and yeast. Unique and distinct. Low hopping. Very obviously not American. I really dug it as an off beat warming porter. Would make a fantastic cigar beer." kevnic2008 (12002) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
Light roasted aroma, nice brownish head. Roasted taste of liquorice and roasted malts. Alc is easily disguised.

Bottle from the Polish Delicatessen, opposite the Barum Top Inn, Halifax. Black-brown, but more of the former, with next to no head. Fairly strong tasting, but its very sweet dark malts hide this to an extent. Has a sticky-sweet texture.
