COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bold porter spent the last six months on fresh aquavit barrels supplied by Arcus. We think the barrels brought justice to our beloved beer, and have returned the barrels in hope that our presence can bring justice to a future aquavit. Enjoy this Imperial Porter in front of a fireplace. Serve at 12º C.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours an opaque black with a tiny, beige head. Nose is sweet roast and alcohol - disappointingly little imprint of the aquavit. Rich, sweet, body. Lowish carbonation, sweet roast, vanilla - and that's about it. I remember the Aquavit Porters from Haandbryggeriet to be much more distinct. 050118

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 velvety cadbury milk chocolate. Rich oaky butterscotch following hot vinous licorice Really well rounded. aquavit has a hard time pushing through such a heavy malt base which is a good thing.

Technically a very well brewed imperial porter. Everything is in balance and drinks easy for 11%. Typical porter flavors of light caramel, subtle choc and a hint of coffee, finishing very dry and clean. The aquavit adds a herbal, slightly woody, spirit like quality that for me makes the base imperial porter less appealing - although for those looking for something a bit different, or fans of Aquavit, this beer will appeal.
