This is a great beer/imperial baltic porter/russian stout/whatchamacallit. Had some doubts about Primátor though, their IPA wasn't that much of a classic - but that wasn't a surprise as we are talking about a Czech brewery after all.
This time they came up with something that is really impressive: from its black color to its intensive taste. It looks pitch black when poured though but when looking into the glass it feels somewhat porter-ish, with an off white, creamy head.
Then off to the taste. Sipping it it feels like coffee - and toffee all of a sudden, quite creamy and then its all about malts and sweetness. Sweet barley or sweet caramel malts take over, actually very sweet for a moment but not too much to make you sick. Still on the good side.
Then comes the icing on the cake, the 10% of alcohol that finishes all off with a slight booziness and cuts off the excessive sweetness, makes it feel like a turbo-malted caramel liquor.
And yes, it gives you a kind and warm feeling. Good to drink when you're down or depressed. Quite a good one this Primator Double is.

I've Had this at least twice and have re-rated based on 10/13/16 tasting.
Dark and minimal lace, I also find this undistinguished in the nose.
But its sweetness comes through in the taste and, this, I actually like more than a few of the other reviews who want more bitterness from either hops or tasted malts. While the alcohol surprises me, it is warming... a job of this style of porter.
Reviewed in the "1001 list, this arguably should not be on the list because it does not distinguish itself enough and merely appeals to a narrow range of sweet people like me... and even I may not finish it for fear of getting too sweet.

A: Dark brown with a little amber tinge, too dark to see through. No apparent carbonation, and 2 fingers of rusty beige head.


S: Coke, crème brulee. Red grapes, Dymatap cough syrup. Sweet and syrupy with a little hint of alcohol fumes.


T: Cough syrup, sweet and thick, grapes, alcohol burn in the throat. Generally alcohol hidden in the mouth, its just so sweet and syrupy though, it reminds me of a quad, even Kasteel Donker in body and sweetness. Some cocoa, chocolate notes.


M: Thick and syrupy, little carbonation, coats the tongue with a slight oil.


O: Interesting brew, in my opinion borders with a Belgian quad. Got and drank in Chiang Mai, March 6th, 2015.
