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!
