from a bottle bought at Star Grocery on Claremont on the Oakland/Berkeley border.

A: pours a deep brown, some scattered lacing

S: big chocolate odors up front

T: really incredibly nice, delicious chocolate flavor, which it nails as well as any chocolate beer I've had.

M: good medium-plus body, getting towards 'creamy'. The barrel aging hasn't left it overly thick or syrupy - not that that would necessarily be a bad thing.

O: outstanding porter, one of my absolute favorites. One of the best of the category I'd call "dessert beers".

650ml bottle, white wax, poured into an unlabeled snifter 6/18/2014.

A- Dark cola brown body, one finger offwhite head with good retention that drops into a thick collar. Good lacing.

S- Licorice, milk chocolate, a bit of roast malt. A slight wet, damp oak scent. Some lactose. Vanilla.

F- Milk chocolate sweetness, lactose mixed in with dark chocolate and roast malts. Oak is definitely there and adds some complexity along with vanilla.

M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side with decent enough carbonation. A bit bitter, but that is offset by some lactose.

O- A pretty darn good chocolate imperial porter with a nice nose. Don't know if there's any actual lactose, but I'd believe it. Pretty expensive though I believe; glad I received this one as an extra.
