De Molen Tsarina Esra Imperial Porter (11% ABV): Located in the Netherlands, De Molen is rapidly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Imperial Porter is a stronger version of the Baltic Porter and represents a recent new porter style that has emerged in both North America and Europe. The style is almost similar to a stout but without the roasted malt flavor. Tsarina Porter pours a very dark brown color (almost black) with tan brown foam. The beer has a sweet caramel aroma with hints of dark chocolate. Tsarina Esra is medium-bodied with wonderfully low carbonation that creates a delightful, “melt in your mouth” creamy experience . The beer tastes of sweet chocolate malt, coffee, molasses, and slight licorice. The beer finishes with a chocolate malt flavor and mild bitterness. Delicious and wonderful!
