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.

chinchill (4647) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Tsarina Esra Imperial Porter served in a small snifter. Completely opaque body is covered by an excellent head. Aroma: rich, sweet and complex, with a load of dark fruits and other elements I could not untangle. Flavor: starts too sweet then turns more and more bitter -- way more change in this dimension than usual. Feel: Creamy smooth; very soft; alcohol is almost completely hidden. O: extraordinary. My admiration exceeded my enjoyment.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a lot of sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, liquorice, and dark fruits. Flavour is much like the aroma.

Theydon_Bois (18267) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle at home, from the De Molen shop, 30/09/13. Pours a very dark mahogony brown with a thin light tan head that dissipates edgeward then stays for the show. Nose is lightly soured dark fruit, dark treacle toffee, roast malts, hint of coffee. Taste comprises brown sugars, cocoa, light coffee notes, treacle toffee, molasses, brown sugars. Medium to full in body, fine carbonation, mineral bite and brown sugars in the finish. Decent enough Imperial Porter.

ShivanDragon (3732) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2013
zwart met bruine kraag
aroma van chocolade, koffie, caramout, gebrande mouten
redelijk tot zwaar zoet, behoorlijk bitter, zeer sterk, matige gefruit, sterk gemout
1e indruk; heerlijk aroma, sterke koffie tonen, zacht romig, koffie, chocolade, mouten (gebrand en geroosterd). Dit bier heeft de pech dat ik zojuist de pannepot heb geproefd, en deze was toch veel beter, maar niettemin is dit ook een prima bier !

Foffern (1764) - Bod, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle. Two year old. The colour is pitch black with a light brown, medium head. Nice sweetish aroma of dark chocolate, oak, leather, roasted malt and some ash and port. Very compact and complex. Lots of roasted malt in the flavour as well along with more dark chocolate. Powerful and roasted. Nice oak in the end. Rich and sticky mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. Fantastically complex in every drop.

kevinsenn (2112) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle from Brewery Creek in Vancouver. Pours deep dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of raisins/grapes, dark fruits, rum, and surprisingly little roasted anything. Taste is also dominated by these dark fruits, and is quite sweet; only slight roasty notes, and not many IBUs in the finish. Big and sticky body. Not what I espected from an "Imperial Porter", but delicious all the same.

Same problem as the guy below. Infected bottle. Purchased online @ Saveur Biere.com Off-notes (Vinegar? Rotten apple skin?) in both aroma and taste. You still can tell it is supposed to be a damn good brew - it pours very dark brown with diabolically red tint (just awesome!) and theres a yummy cocoa note in the taste. But friggin sourness ruins all the experience... And, damn, yes, it is not the first time it happens with De Molen bottles (always with the generic, black capped ones). Will be def. buying again. hoping for a better one.
