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.

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!

Bottle from Systembolaget (6,3%). Black with beige head. Aroma is roasted coffee. Taste is chocolate and roasted coffee. Gives a somewhat bitter tail.

Drake (13662) - 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!

VDuquerroux (1652) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle, 341mL. Home. 6.3% (bottled 01/2016). A sparkling very dark brown beer, nearly black, with a medium beige "oily" head ; ok retention ; good lacing. Roast, coffee, black chocolate cream, cereal, caramel note. Light to medium sweet, quite round, light to medium dry bitter ; nice balance. Medium good body, light to medium oily texture, average to soft carbonation, coffee dry lasting finish. Overall, awesome. Utterly delicious :)

nickd717 (4648) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle, 33cl. ABV listed as 6.3%. Darkest brown color with a large, lasting khaki head. Aroma is very nice, roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, molasses piney hops. Full flavor, somewhat sweet and also bitter, chocolate and pine. Medium full body, smooth yet with fairly high carbonation. Enjoyable black IPA or hoppy porter or what have you.
