kevinsenn (2070) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Thick molasses and dark fruit aroma. Huge grainy and toasty taste that finishes with dark fruits and brandy. Roasty bitterness throughout. Very nice.

Freaky_tiki (1117) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Pours dark as a winter’s night with a nice ring of brown foam hugging the glass. Well made porter. Somehow manages to be very smooth & yet at times the mouthfeel prickles. Booze at 9% is quite stealthy here. Coffee roast, green hops, drizzles of chocolate. The rye characteristics are not as pronounced as expected. Pretty damn fine.

Imperial rye porter, en collaboration avec la brasserie Terrapin des Etats-Unis, où le seigle est roi .. Niveau abv de 9 %, pour 22° plato, et 30 ebu. Orge et seigle maltés, levure anglaise. Mon exemplaire, en format 50 cl, avait 20 mois de mise en bouteille, sur 4 ans préconisés par les brasseurs en date limite. Couleur noir profond, à l’opacité quasi totale. Mousse en nappage soyeux brun moyen. Arômes de café, chocolat, froment, pointe très légère de vanille. 1ère bouche très souple, à la très belle entame malt torréfié/café de côte d’Ivoire, avec de l’avoine. Arrière-bouche dense, profonde, longue, très harmonieuse. 2ème au très grand ensemble malt/café/bois brûlé. Arrière-bouche riche, tout à fait à l’équilibre, magnifique. 3ème aux très belles céréales, très belle saveur brûlée fine. Arrière-bouche intense, complexe, suave. Longueur qui développe, travaille, intensifie, nuance .. bref elle fait ce qu’il faut faire !! Jambes fines, serrées, longues. Levure boisée, forte, très belle ligne. Alcool impeccable, pas du tout excessif, très bien intégré, il développe à la fois saveurs, équilibre et harmonie. Finale remarquable, délicieuse. CONCLUSION : très grand rye porter en version impériale, ce qui ne gâche rien, avec exactement les bonnes proportions sur toute la longueur : céréales, force alcoolique, nuances fines, élégance et harmonie.. Du grand art … et un 5 on ne peut plus mérité ...

Theydon_Bois (17944) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle split at Bespin, thanks to Danny Boyo, 08/12/16. Black with a decent tan head. Nose is earthy, molasses, herbal notes, dark chocolate dusting, chocolate biscuit. Taste comprises chocolate chop cookies, toffee, earthy, shades of fruit loaf, black peppery spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough porter ... ABV kept in check, drinks fairly easy if perhaps lacking a little depth ABV considered.

rostetti (271) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with small, light brown head. Aroma has much of roasted malts, some salty licorice. From the flavor it’s easy to tell that this beer has high alcohol. Taste has a lot of salty licorice and it even reminds me of some licorice booze. Taste also has roasted malt and some nuts. A bit unpleasant.

Spab (3560) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2016
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with good-sized tan head. Aroma is fairly roasty with chocolate, nuts, some vinous character, dried fruit and some rye spiciness. Flavour has chocolate, roast, prune, red wine, nuts and a gentle peppery rye character. Slick mouthfeel. Good one.
