Pours with a light, coffee colored head. Color is black. Aroma is fruity and malty, some licorice, aniseed, ammonia, tobacco. Palate is really nice, perfectly balanced and smooth, very smooth. Taste is similar to the aroma: ammonia, dark malt, aniseed, some lemon. Some grass in after taste. Slightly dry, smooth finish. A tasty, fresh and rich combination.

A deep dark porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nice chocolate malt with light grassy hops, light treacle, pleasant. In mouth, a nice sweet chocolate malt with light resinous floral hops, light licorice, alcohol warmth, very nice. Bottle at L'autre oeil.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 500ml bottle. Pours about as brown as a beer can be before you have to describe it as "black", with a thin tan head. Smells amazing, milk chocolate, molasses, lots of dark dried fruits, very light vanilla, dark coffee, some definite booziness (dark rum), and a very light hit of ash. Full bodied, and not nearly as sweet as I would expect. Very malt forward, with molasses, an underlying hint of anise (basically, yeah, there's a lot of licorice going on), a very faint note of almost Islay-like peat smoke, and some almost bran flake-like cereal notes that leads into dried fruit, anise, a taste that makes me think of grain dust when it's being harvested, with espresso, light citrus peel, and a lingering taste of malt in the very long finish. Wowsers, this is some glorious stuff. It's like the beer version of a delicious pumpernickel molasses loaf.

Deep black pour with a hige dark brown head. The nose is really big and intense. Cocoa and molasses with a bit of vanilla. Big brash beer. Rich and sticky with a nice bitter/spicy finish.

Aromat: intensywny, ciężki, słodki, czekolada, praliny, trochę ciemnych owoców. Wygląd: czarne lub może czarnobrunatne, nieprzejrzyste, jasnobeżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, średnio wysoka piana. Smak: gorzka czekolada, jędrne suszone śliwki, sporo ciemnych owoców, trochę kawy i pralin, lekkie odczucie umami, mało nut palonych, goryczy też niedużo. Półsłodkie, ale to przez niewielką gorycz, dosyć aksamitne i gładkie. Odczucie: dobrze ułożone, dosyć pełne, na finiszu lekka gorycz i posmaki ciemnych owoców, średnio wysycone. Bardzo późno wchodzą bardzo przyjemne pralinowo likierowe posmaki. Całość: bardzo poprawne, ale niczego nie urywa. Do naszego Golema Double Dybuk nie ma startu:) już nie mówiąc od porterach z Widawy, nie ma tu żadnego przebłysku geniuszu, jest to po prostu dobry, stylowy imperialny porter. 8/4/7/4/14

Potent aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts, black bread and ash. Taste is full of rye toast, sweet chocolate, dried plums and moderate roastiness. No alcohol heat, nice body and a bit of ash in the aftertaste. Great effort.

Mpuntmuts (371) - 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.
