Tsarina Esra tasting notes
De Molen Tsarina Esra is an Imperial Porter, stronger version of a Baltic Porter, without the rosted malty character of an Imperial Stout. This is one of the top rated Imperial Porters in Ratebeer, and one of the top rated beers by De Molen. Almost black in colour with a small beige coloured head and some lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, alcohol, and some yeasty spicy notes. Taste is roasted and complex with smoke and liquorice and coffee hints, dark chocolate, malts, and light bitterness. Notable sweetness, balanced by an notable bitterness, long duration with a creamy bittersweet finish. A nice and hoppy Imperial Porter.
