“ Brand: Amber Browar / Beer: Porter / Poland / Type: Ale „
This Porter is very rich and smooth. It has a deep dark color. Not complicated with a lot of bitter hops. Pouring the beer you have a very fine bubbly head with a great aroma. It is sweet but not too sweet. A unique combination of black patent and chocolate malts that gives a truly enjoyable taste. A light selection of mild hops helps one draw out the coffee and chocolate after taste. The body is full and the flavor lasts. The large 500 ml bottle is the perfect size. Smoother than many Oatmeal Stouts. Alcohol content is above 8 percent. Can be enjoyed with all types of foods. The price is very good but Grand can not be found in many locations.
Presently it appears to only available from ARKO LLC in New Britian Conn.
I hope that you will enjoy this rich lucious taste as much as I did. It deserves 5 star rating.
Grand Imperial Porter is a dark Polish porter beer from the Amber Browaria, I normally get along quite nicely with beers from this particularly brewery, their Kozlak beer being one of my favourites.
Grand Imperial Porter had a particularly curly font and golden design which attempted to make it look classy, likewise the description was the usual over-indulgent rubbish. Most notably the percentage of malt at 18.4% was fairly strong and combined with the alcohol content of 8% it gave it a strong sweet kick.
There were no strong alcohol notes but come to think of it, I wish there were because the bitter sweet explosion from the chocolate and caramely flavour was far too much for me to handle. I can say that I really struggled to finish this beer and didn't enjoy it in the slightest, you are going to have to have an enormous tolerance for really sweet things to enoy this one.
Ironically they recommend drinking this porter with a dessert, I recommend drinking it with something to wash your mouth out with!
Strong, dark beer.
