4.2/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle poured into tulip New Years Day 2013

A shes a dark one even the foam, not much of an edge just a thumbnail, the foam lasts a few sips and leaves a single ring of lace

S chocolate liqueur and syrup with some licorice and fudge, there's a faint hint of hard nutty toffee and a little dark fruit both fresh and dried, some of those hard coffee candies I can never remember the name of and a little molasses

T not as rich as the nose but still very nice, some char I wasn't picking up on the nose, a little more fruit and less of the many forms of chocolate the nose was pumping out

M leaning towards full with enough bubbles to give it some life, quite sticky on the lips and slick and oily in the mouth, very faint heat but considering its 8% the booze is well hidden

O very well rounded brew with no flaws I just had to bump it up a notch in the overall department, I could drink another for sure, grab one of these if you can

solid Imperial Porter from Mikkeller, worth the 8$ and almost made me feel human after a crappy day

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Beautiful looking porter. Deep cola pour into a solid black body. Creamy, light khaki cap of foam. Nice retention and ok lace.

S - Rye bread, dark bitter chocolate, molasses, almond, Nutella, touch of cold booze.

T - Smooth and roasty. Dark toast, dark chocolate truffles, bitter herbs, pumpernickel bread, toasted hazelnuts.

M - Medium body, spot on for the style. Smooth, creamy finish.

O - A great porter, one of the better examples of the style.

Thanks to Tauroe for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into an Upland pint glass.

A: Very dark brown and opaque. Forms a thin tan creamy head and almost no visible carbonation.

S: Roasted malts, coffee, cacao, a bit creamy, and some sweet maltiness. There's elements here that remind me of amaretto as well.

T: Coffee, lactose creaminess, cacao, and a nutty (almonds? Or almost peanut butter?) flavor at the swallow. Creamy sweet with mild roasted bitterness in the hang.

M: Creamy, heavy body for style. Low carbonation sensation, and alcohol very well-hidden.

O: Wow - this was really pretty damn pleasant. Mikkeller beers are often hit or miss; but this was a hit for sure. Tasty.

4.04/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: dark brown/black chocolate. A thumb high, very solid and consistent foam, brown/caramel color. Low carbonation; good lacing.

Smell: huge roasty, smokey, coffee malt notes. Hint of fresh hop fragrance, a fruity character. Subtle but charming.

Taste: big dark roasted, smokey malt middle then comes a hint of freshness from hops. There's a nice balance of roasted malt and hop flavour. This especially comes to life in the nice bitter coffee/hops aftertaste. The roasted character is not overblown. There are some hints of tart.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth/creamy, medium body. Alcohol well hidden. A nice coating, easy sipper.

Overall: Good representative of a american porter, the hop character with roasted malt make a nice balance, will pick it up again.

3.9/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with a rocky mocha head; not much lacing left behind

Smell: Mocha dominant, with hints of anise, chocolate and vanilla

Taste: Mocha from the get-go, bringing chocolate, coffee, sugar and cream flavors to the fore; by mid-palate, the beer gets a bit roasty, with some anise adding another dimension in the finish; sugary sweetness lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Although this beer has some age on it and the hops are no longer a factor, the flavors have developed very nicely, thought the sweetness makes finishing the bottle a bit of a challenge
