Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, - DEC 27, 2012
Pours pitch black with a big thick brown head. Leaves alot of lacing, and it takes a while before it’s all gone. Aroma of licorice and figs. Taste of coffee, licorice and chocolate. Some caramel sweetness and alcohol in the aftertaste.

Mpuntmuts (271) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Extremely dark pour with a thin layer of a head. Big aromas. Strong fresh brewed coffee, dark chocolate, the rye taking up a prominent spot here. Very well in balance. Taste is in line with the aroma with the perfect amount of bitters and the acidity of the coffee beans. It's like a dark cocoa chocolate bar. Very slick and creamy body with low carbonation. Can't wait for Christmas to come and have myself another one!!!

J'ai beaucoup apprécié les arômes francs et intenses de café et de chocolat subtilement agrémentés de notes fruités. Cet Imperial Rye Porter est vraiment réussie et se laisse d'ailleurs facilement boire de par sa rondeur (sucre bien présent, sans être trop présent), un alcool pas exceptionnellement fort à 9 % Abv, une amertume à 30 d'IBU, pas réellement poussée mais suffisante et surtout une ligne aromatique très efficace. Efficace, mais relativement simple tout de même avec un final un peu limite qui sont la limite à mon enthousiasme. En verre, noir total sans mousse à la surface. Le nez affiche le programme : café, chocolat et fruits (les agrumes du houblon), l'ensemble étant franc et incisif. L'attaque démarre par une belle fraîcheur, l'amertume prenant légèrement l'ascendant sur le malt. On retrouve les arômes révélés par le nez, simples mais terriblement efficaces. Mais les arômes se révèlent véritablement en seconde bouche, amples et légèrement plus fruités, cette Imperial Rye Porter possède une excellente corpulence. L'arrière bouche cependant n'apporte rien de plus. La troisième bouche voit par contre un caractère un peu plus affirmé avec l'alcool qui prend ses marques en se faisant légèrement ressentir. Le final, trop court aura par contre l'intérêt de nous dévoiler de jolies notes épicées qui, en complément de l'alcool donne un peu plus de tempérament (sur l'alcool et les épices, nous sommes sue la nuance et pas des évolutions gustatives radicales). Duo Nogne O/ Terapin gagnant.

stupre (529) - Nanterre, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2017
33cl bottle purchased @ Mille et une bières Cormontreuil. Belle robe pétrole sans mousse. Arômes de malts torréfiés. Le seigle apporte de la consistance et de la gourmandise sur le pain grillé. Puis on bascule sur un peu de réglisse. En fin de bouche les fruits mûrs se font sentir.

Alebarasi (162) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - OCT 22, 2017
Pitch black/dark brown color with a small, quickly dissolving tan head. Full body, smooth/average carbonation, no lacing. Sweet and rich aroma of chocolate, cocoa, rye, dark fruits (especially plums), roasted malts, licorice, molasses, oak, dried banana, vanilla, resins, brandy, wood, coffee, smoke and herbs (anise). Similar aromas in taste with notable roast notes, toffee, herbal syrup, milk chocolate and spices upfront. Silky/oily texture, perfect balance, rich flavors. Excellent brew!

pawos (274) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 16, 2017
uzupełniane z innego serwisu... Dominuje czekolada oraz likier; zarówno w smaku jak i w zapachu. Gęste ale dość jednostronne w smaku, pustawe.

GhostS (513) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 7, 2017
Aromă intensă, bogată, multă dulceață foarte îndulcită de prune și coacăză, melasă, puțin alcool care ”dizolvă” cumva toată dulceața, ciocolată, puțin malț prăjit, caramelă arsă. Gust ușor dulce (sirop de zahăr, dulceață de prune, puțină caramelă și melasă), puțină amăreală arsă (foarte plăcută și potrivită), malț ușor prăjit, ciocolată, note de turbă și apă împuțintă; corp greoi și dens. O bere foarte intensă, puțin prea dulce (pentru densitatea sa) care o face cam greu de băut. Dar, unei beri atât de complexe și intense, lipsa ”vitezei” nu-i strică.

3.2
Klimaet (3020) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2017

tricksta_p (5119) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2017
From tap at Kaapse Brouwers, Rotterdam. Aroma is thick rye, roasted malt, dark chocolate, creamy mocha, coffee, touch of tobacco with fruity hoppy notes and some liquorice. Medium sweet flavour with some roasty bitterness in the finish. Body is full. Lovely Imperial Porter with a lot of chocolate in the aroma.
