m.mahu (155) - Iasi, ROMANIA - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours pitch black with no head whatsoever. Smells like liquorice, fruits, cognac. Tastes follows with more dark fruits, liquorice, cognac barrel, roasted malts, faint black coffee, a bit of ash. The alcohol is present, although not bothersome. There is sweetness to it and bitterness, but both very low. There is almost no carbonation. I love it.

Turboninja (658) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle@home, from Alko web store. Medium, quite fresh and sweet aroma with dark fruits and some bourbon. Pitch black color with no head. Strong, balanced taste with sweet and slightly sour, dry nuances of dark fruits like plum. Bourbon, licorice and some sweetish, roasted malts and vanilla. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with slightly roasted malts and licorice. Medium/strong body with medium carbonation. Overall, considering imperial porter, this quite nails it: almost like imperial stout but with slight bitter, more edge feeling. Alcohol comes trough a bit too much.

YantarCoast (1141) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 18, 2017
355ml bottle dated 14 September 2015, bought at Bliznetsy in Moscow. Pours pitch black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is cognac, dark sweet cherries, and roastiness. Taste is very liqueurish, like cognac, espresso and brown sugar. A very intense and complex beer, for sure.

MelvinKalksma (1297) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, mocha and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great roasted beer with some sort of brown sugar added to make it a Porter. Amazing appearance and flavour, together with a great aroma and palate. Has no really bad aspects.
