Wow, Sigtuna continues a logarithmic improvement curve of its brews! This is a very nicely composed "imperial" (god, I hate thate term for beers) porter, with massive and complex aroma and taste while maintaining a nice balance. This is an "advanced" beer that still tastes like beer. The roasted malts gives the brew a nice touch of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Impressively "thin" for its 8% ABV, which means that I can enjoy the whole bottle for once...

33cl bottle. Dark brown with a thin golden head. Aroma is cocoa powder, toffee, roasted malts, dark fruits, bread, vanilla and tobacco. Taste is dark chocolate, fresh coffee beans, caramel and smoke. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture. Good stuff.

Scottishchris (754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours dark brown with tan lacing. Massive chocolate caramel nose, really distinctive. Medium thick body, light bubbles, coffee and bitterness. Millionaires shortbread in a beer! Amazing!

Very dark but clear pour. Almost no head. Rich and smokey caramels. Very nice and easy to drink. Not at all boozy. Dig this

Black fluid with short tan head. Dense aromas of cocoa, coffee and a hint of licorice. Heavy thick fluid, slightly roasted with somewhat sweet notes. Coffee, chocolate and smoked charcuteries. Very nice!

Svesse (8777) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, rocky, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit (figs, raisins), liquorice, black rye bread and hints of orange peel. Malty, roasted taste with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, cacao, liquorice, black rye bread, dark fruit, some vanilla sweetness, hits of burnt sugar and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Not quite as powerful as the stronger 2011 version, but a bit more balanced, actually in excellent balance. Lovely beer.

thb (835) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Inky black, mocha foam (thinnish). Aroma is lots of chocolate, toast, leather. Taste pulls out the same plus a lot of fruits - blackberries and the like. Sweet, bitter in balance. Lots going on, lots of evolution throughout the sip. Good.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Liqueur à l’apparence de charbon liquide, à la mousse rare mais à l’olfactif qui compense largement pour un visuel tranquille : chocolat, boisé, alcool et épices se succèdent. La bouche est copieuse, assez mince pour se qualifier avec succès comme un porter impérial et non un stout, mais complexe (cacao, vin rouge, houblons en finale) et pas inutilement lourd (épices bien retenues, alcool discret). Plus simple que prévu, et ça lui va bien ; excellent breuvage hivernal.
