COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Momentum de October
India Porter
Chemin de Croix’s rich roasted and chocolate flavours, made evident by its dark mocha colour, are accompanied by fruity esters resulting from the yeast. A resinous bitterness contributes to the overall dryness. Brown malt – rather than roasted malt – invokes the typical signature of the first Porters, often generously hopped for exportation to India.

EerieDrinks (200) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2017
2 finger frothy, light tan head. Deep, very dark brown beer. Aroma is bakers chocolate, dark rye bread, nuts, light caramel, very light spices and dark roasted coffee with a clear note of citric hops. Really pleasant and has a ’fireplace’ vibe to it. Taste is fresh yeast, coffee grounds, light bakers chocolate and some hops at the back. Anti-climactic to say the least but still good. Medium-thick mouthfeel. Medium-high, lingering and passive bitterness. Semi-oily. Rich and creamy. Mouthfilling. Juicy in a IPA sort of way. Overall: A good Imp. Porter with the achilles heel being the taste, it just feels way too gentle and one-dimensional. The decently sized hop notes, however, makes the beer feel a bit more interesting and it still manages to be a good beer, all in all.

Flaska från SB. En Old Style India Porter. Svart i glaset men fina toner av mörk brun/kastanj när jag håller det mot ljuset. Tjusigt fingerhögt beiget skum. Välrostade och brända toner i doften av kola, toffee, läder, aska, tobak, rostade ekflis, mörkt socker, mörk torkad frukt, mörka bär och bitter mörk choklad. Mellanstor, fyllig o härligt rund och len kropp. Även i smaken brända och torra toner av kola, aska, bränd malt. Lätt syrlig. Medium beska. Riktigt trevlig!

Drake (13742) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Bottle from John’s Grocery, which was my 10000th place rating, and this, rating #20,000,000. [alternative facts] Dark brown, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, leather, caramel, tobacco. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, tobacco. Medium bodied, chewy, mild lingering bitterness. Nice. Bet this is amazing on tap. Too bad I’m only having it from my own kegerator on the top of Sears Tower. [more alternative facts] 100th imperial porter! [not an alternative fact].

Mörkt rödbrun med brunt skum. Kraftig doft med charkuterier, kaffe och aska. Kraftig smak med mycket kaffe, lakrits och charkuterier plus en rejäl beska. Jag tycker att beskan tog överhanden; det rör sig om en svart IPA och jag har lite svårt för den ölstilen, den blir sällan helt lyckad.

Really pleasent aroma. Roasted malt with hints of coffee and rather smoky. Dark brown with a light brown head. Smooth and balanced taste. Great stuff!
