adster (817) - HUNGARY - JUL 22, 2017
Önmagában véve szimpatikus ital, a külleme terén sincs oka panaszra: éjfekete test, bézs habbal a tetején. Illatai még magukban hordoznak némi reményt valami intenzív élmény kiteljesedésére, a mandulás, marcipános színezetu, édeskésen telt malátás aromák rendben vannak, bár a komló kissé kitüremkedo foszlányai elorevetítik egy általam kevésbé preferált stílus kirajzolódását. Belekortyolva beigazolódik a gyanúm; közelebb állni látszik ugyanis egy szimpla, komlóval alaposan megdúsított porterhez, mintsem annak imperial-változatához. Kávés, étcsokoládés, hamus, majd gyógynövényes, pirított magvas karakteru, kissé éles testu, az imperial-vonalhoz homályos szálak útján kapcsolódó fozet.

ozzatoadisback (173) - ITALY - JUN 18, 2017
Black colour, big and dense mocha head, good persistence and lacing. Aroma shows roasted malts, nicely balanced by soft nuttiness, plus dusty hints and slight fruitiness. Overall very clean and quite vivid. Taste has semi sweet (nutty) and semi roasted maltiness (hints of coffee), again a slight dusty feel and some red fruits in the background. Finishes quick with a good dose of clean-cut dry bitterness. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, quite creamy but still easy to drink. Abv is wonderfully hidden. Overall a robust but still pretty easily drinkable porter. Well done

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Duvel: belle robe brune surmontée d’une épaisse mousse couleur café avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes houblonnés ,fumés et vineux.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs de café et chocolat avec une forte amertume qui domine l’ensemble nous laissant sur une finale très plaisante, sans aucune lourdeur.Un excellent Impérial Porter!!!

BOTTLE 33 CL. Pitch black, huge dark mocha head. Nice dark malts dashed with a good deal of hops - green grassy notes to flowery, rosebud aromas. Similar taste - malty/fruity, with flowers hops and a strong sharp bitter furnish. Very nice.
