UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Bottle from biernavi.de, bottled 04/11/2011. Black body with a beautiful, medium, pretty stable, very creamy, tan head. Wonderful aroma of melting chocolate, ripe banana, dried fruits, caramel, some coffee and roast, some nuts, even some smoke. Taste is also delicious, with dark chocolate, coffee, nuts, dark fruits, toffee, wood, again some subtle smoke. Mouthfeel is satisfying, full, creamy, with the right amount of carbonation and it finishes complex, slightly dry, with warm alcohol, bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, wood, some dark fruits. What a great, dark and complex beer! Perfectly balanced and although heavy and strong, quaffable to drink. Delicious! Wim (4226) - Weelde, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2014

Bottiglia 33cl bevuta a casa.
Color caramello scuro, schiuma fine e persistente.
Poco carbonata, corpo medio, buona beva nonostante la gradazione, finale amaro. mezr (158) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2014
11.2 oz bottle. Pours black as midnight with a brief brown head that settles to a persistent film on the surface. Aroma loudly boasts of roasted coffee and chocolate. Fairly sweet and lightly bitter, this is a full body Imperial Porter that’s thick, moderately sticky, and soft on the carbonation. Long bitter finish. The label says to “enjoy it within 25 years” … but it only lasted a day-and-a-half at my house!
