MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, bread and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown/black beer with medium yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

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

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great amount of chocolate and a decent batch of roasted malts at the end. Thanks to that rye, there is some (dark) bread somewhere in there. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

Bottle from LCBO. Lovely sweet aroma of chocolate, coffee, roastiness, berries. Very dark with tan head. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, the rye comes through, but it’s not overpowering. Rye is not my favourite thing in a beer, but it’s nicely balanced here.

kraddel (8150) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2017
bottle at beerlovers bar. Pours dark, 99 % black, small grey head. Smell is very full, coffee / roasty, very mild red fruits. creamy, rye, even though i’m not convinced i’d be able to name that blindly. Taste is very full, intense body. The rye shines trough nicely. This grainbeer is in perfect balance ! Still get some very distant red fruits. Chewy ending, thick body, very nice carbo. A very surprisingly good beer !

Alusmamuts (1984) - LATVIA - JUN 8, 2017
Black with medium creamy brown head. Bread aroma. Soft remarkable bitterness with roasted grain and the bread notes with moderate kvass type sweet-sourness on the background. Lasting bitter aftertaste.

brewberg (10) - Drammen, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2017
The most interesting part of this ale for me was the clear (but subtle) traces of cereal (I guess this is the rye) and hay in the finish. Throughout the most prominent taste is of licorice, but also caramel/toffee and resin. Dark brown/black with a nice and white-brownish head. Small head, but (even though it is smaller) it doesn’t disappear. Sweet, but it is balanced out by a brutal bitterness. The intense kick doesn’t last for long, so it doesn’t ruin the balance overall and is just an interesting (and tasty) feature of the ale. Bitter and sweet, with a little acidity to it. The foam ruins the ale a little though, as it seems to be growing in the mouth. A delicious ale, tastes like how I imagine tar tastes like.

drpimento (3640) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Super good Imperial Porter. Aroma is complex yet clean and enjoyable with tobacco a hint of anise some roast coffee and and a bit of leather. Flavor’s much like nose, slight sweetness dominates but there is some Carbonic Tang end bitterness to balance making it a very drinkable beer and super smooth period body is very good and finish is perfect.

Zarrach76 (270) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 26, 2017
Versée excessivement huileuse, mousse beige épaisse à bulles fines, brune très foncée avec quasiment aucune transparence... Jolie ! Très beau nez, marqué sur le café Moka, le cacao, le chocolat au lait, la vanille, le bois de cèdre, le caramel, le miel, ainsi que le pruneau, la noix et la noisette, la figue, la banane, la pêche, l’ananas, l’abricot bien mûr, la cerise noire... Superbe ! En bouche, alcool de très haute volée qui pousse les flaveurs tant que possible, texture ronde, riche avec énormément de corpulence, sucres résiduels vraiment suaves, amertume sobre parfaitement à l’équilibre avec les notes de cacao amer, levures bien droites et aromatiques. Le cuir, le bois, la terre, les notes de céréales et de végétaux, la longueur, un beau final, tout y est ! Cet Imperial Rye Porter est une merveille de douceur et de force à la fois ainsi que de gourmandise. On prend un plaisir énorme à le déguster. Du très grand art de la part de Nøgne Ø et Terrapin. Un must ! Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.
