angel77 (3353) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en Cimmeria 12-04-2014 en el momento. Embotellada en 25-03-2013 y para 25 años. Color caoba tirando a negro con espuma beige bastante oscura y no muy persistente. Aromas iniciales ligeros a mieles de montaña y brezo ligeramente tostadas con maderas empapadas de licor y pequeños toques de chocolate y algo de café. Cuerpo fuerte (11 vol.) con gran sensación alcohólica en todo momento aunque a medida que va calentando va haciéndose mas ligera en paso por boca convirtiéndose casi como un licor. Sabores bastante dulces mieles negras y caramelos tostados toques de maderas con licor y algunos quemados, algo de chocolate. Gran cerveza sensación alcohólica y sabores intensos en todo momento. Para repetir de nuevo sin duda.

fantti (1017) - FINLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Kaatuu snifteriin hyvin tummanruskeana/mustana ja pienellä noin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla, joka jättää kevyttä pitsiä. Hajussa on vahvimpana lakritsia ja salmiakkia. Melkein yhtä vahvana on kahvista paahteisuutta ja juurimaisuutta. Haju on hyvin tasapainossa. Maku on hyvin vahvaa salmiakkista otetta, hiven heikompana on tukevaa lakritsisuutta. Alla on jonkin verran juurimaisuutta ja maanläheisyyttä, jonkin verran havuisuuttakin tuntuu aivan maun loppupuolella tuoden hieman raikkaamman vivahteen tullessaan. Suutuntuma on hyvin tukeva ja tuhti, kokonaisvaikutelma on hivenen hyökkäävä pysyen kuitenkin miellyttävänä. Todella hieno imperial porter, melko monipuolinen tapaus salmiakkisuuden ollessa kaikkein vahvimpana. Voisin kuvitella, että omaan suuhuni sopii paremmin näin kuin tuoreena (pullotettu 21.3.-13), ja humalointi (93 IBU) on tasaantunut.

martjoobolut (4312) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2014
Small bottle. Pours dark brown-black with tan head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is vinous fruits, raisins, berries, and slight alcohol. Taste is raisins, malt, dark fruits, wood, and licorice. Finish is fruity and coffee bitter. Overall: great beer.

wlajwl (6801) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2014
Aroma is dark malts, chocolate, fruit and vinous notes. The flavor is dark malts, dark fruit/vinous, berries, chocolate and a mildly sour/tart/warming finish.

Christos (5740) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter, no bottling date on the label, ABV 11% Pours a very dark brown and almost totally black beer, with one finger of brown head, thick, with very good retention, leaving some big bubbles and foam islands on the surface and light lacing around the glass. Aroma is heavy on dark fruits with lots of plums, molasses, very sweet in general, some chocolate, sugar, shery. Taste is moderate sweet, with lots of chocolate and roasted malts too, ash, wood, very well hidden alcohol, some fortified wine notes. Very thick body, low carbonation that works grear, quite sticky on the palate. Overall a great beer.

thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle. Label has no "Imperial Porter" line on it. This beer just appeared on the local shelves recently but the one I got today was bottled over a year ago. I wonder where they kept it all this time? So I guess I am rating an aged sample now. Dark brown body with a minimal head. Aroma has smoked almonds, scotch and medium smoky roast. I am already drooling. Oily mouthfeel. Taste reflects the aroma. Very good. I would like to try a lighter version of this beer too - that would be a regular "Baltic Porter" then?
