Flaska från SB. Drygt två år gammal drucken med ölföreningen. En stadig rejäl välbrygd imperial porter med mycket fatkaraktär. Vanilj, bourbon, kokos, smörkola, läkerol special och kaffe. Len fin munkänsla. Riktigt god och en positiv överaskning för mig. Iphonephan (7087) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
From a 75 cl bottle purchased from Leukens. Pours a clear dark cola with a creamy tan head. Aromas of licorice and caramel. Flavors same. Quite effervescent. Mellow finish. bytemesis (8823) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 18, 2014
A special beer with thanks to _angst_ for the trade! 2011 bottle. Pours reddish deep chestnut, small tan head, good lacing on the glass. Aroma is pretty strong bourbon, toffee, raisins, figs. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter - clear evidence of barrel aging, more like a quad than a porter in some ways. Lightish body and a bit thin, which was a bit of a distractor, but still a good beer. barn0216 (550) - California, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Deep brown with a reddish hue, no foam. Rich caramel malty aroma with clear hints of barrel aging, some tootsie roll chocolate. Body is very thin, some roast bitter, some sweet chocolate, light bourbon. ansalon (4085) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2014
