Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

Muggus69 (2313) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. Bottled 19/05/15, BB 19/05/40!!! Pours an immaculate pitch black body with a creamy tan head. Aroma subtle at first, but promise is there - 70%+ dark chocolate, burnt sugar, raisins, sweet coffee, blueberrry & other vinous black fruits. Inky, syrupy, slick body, restrained carbonation with tremendous persistence. Intense flavours - bitter chocolate, wood, dark berries & currants, black coffee, charred crust, charcoal. Bitterness is strong, lingering warming finish. Very roasty, unlike anything Ive come across - very impressive.

L_inconnu (69) - Ecublens, SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2016
On tap, batch #2658. The one Im having is indicated 10.1% ABV ! Pale and large foamy head. Its color is very dark brown, almost black. I smelled chocolate, a bit of coffe too and a little bit of alcool. The taste is really good ; pretty sweet buta balanced. Chocolate and vanilla dominate, with a slight touch of coffe too. A very nice imperial porter (would have say Imp Stout if I had it blind ^^)

Zlotta (2787) - Hagen, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Bierkompass, bottled in April 2014. Pitch black, no head, just a thin, soapy, beige layer. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of chocolate, cold coffee, lots of licorice, some tobacco and slight hints of leather. Moderately sweet, malty, slightly roasty taste of chocolate, coffee, loads of licorice, hazelnut, vanilla and some tobacco, followed by a medium long moderately roasty-bitter finish, absolutely no alcohol detectable. Medium to full body, creamy to oily mouthfeel, almost flat. Tasty sipper, already too flat though. Balance is great, could actually be a bit more expressive, but maybe this was better when it was fresh. Slight disappointment.
