ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a creamy beige head. Nose is bourbon, caramel cream, peanut, soy, dark malts, coffee and hints of toffee and wood. Taste is creamy caramel and tiramisu, wood, bourbon, peanuts, coffee, dark chocolate and hints of toffee, biscuits and dark malts. Thick, velvety mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A solid, thick and sweet BA imperial porter, very nice indeed.

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and liquorice. Semi sweet, but rounds out well balanced. Has a very light sour touch as well, maybe due to the high levels of roasted malts. Full bodied with medium carbonation.

furthur (1255) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Tan head dissipated quickly, aroma malt, oak, bourbon. Beer is opaque black. Taste is cherries and oak and bourbon and honey, with a thread of bright lemon that lingers, then coffee at the finish. Palate is thick and viscous, bubbles very fine, actually maybe slightly over carbonated. This might be my new favorite.

A robust porter that has much roast, some burnt parts. OK drinkability. Not the best IP I have had. Dark brown colour.

Plovmand (8685) - Grindsted, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet ripe fruity, chocolate, sweet molasses, some roasted malt and toasted caramel. The flavour is roasted and chocolate like with some licorice and ripe fruit. Not very porter like. More like a very dark belgian stout. Very nice though.

luttonm (6972) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22oz bottle, Seattle. Dark brown-black. Dry coffee, dry wood. Souring porter, too sweet for my taste. Off woody flavors. Overdone, strange.

Enjoyed this one. Note that it’s barely in the imperial category, given most craft beer today it’s not too extreme, relatively easy drinking. Pours dark brown with moderate head. Very roasty, nutty, dry hoppy finish. Drinks pretty easy and doesn’t get to heavy at all. Good porter.
