Bomber into an English pint (probably should have put it in a snifter). Bottled 21 May 13...8 months old...based on other reviews this might not be good.
A: Body is a dark brown, close to black, no light coming through. Pour yielded about one inch of dark tan head, receded in about a minute to a film on the surface of the beer. Some lacing, not uniform or substantial.
S: Coffee. Detect some roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, and maybe dark fruits. The coffee overwhelms everything else.
T: Sweetness dominates all the way through, giving the impression of a white wine flavor...no idea why this flavor is in this beer. There is a creamy caramel note and vanilla that comes in right after the beginning, and remains throughout, with a coffee flavor that eventually shows up...nowhere near as pronounced as the smell would indicate. There is a hint of smokiness present as well.
M: Body is not heavy, in fact it seems the light side of medium. Carbonation is pretty well pronounced, and keeps this lively. Easy to drink, slightly dryness in the finish. This does not feel imperial.
O: This is a drinkable beer. The problem is that for a beer labeled as an Imperial Porter, I was expecting something else. The white wine flavor in the taste threw me off, and the mouthfeel was just too off for the style. Not disappointed I tried it, but I'll never drink this again.

22 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head Glass
A - dark black pour with a towering foamy caramel colored head, world class retention, and world class lacing.
S - coffee, chocolate, roasted notes, and dark fruit.
T - sweet vanilla and molasses, chocolate and a burnt wood and coffee finish. Alcohol is hidden very well.
M - good carbonation, very thick, bit of an aftertaste
O - good but not spectacular.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is near black with a small beige collar. The aroma offers a robust coffee nose with dark chocolates. Decent flavor, with bitter chocolates, finishing dry. Medium in body with light carbonation. Overall, this is decent, but not a repeat for me.
