look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

web site that this was to be released in april as a XS that was very similar to the mocha porter.

pours a jet black, very opaque, big frothy khaki head, excellent lacing.

smell was very apparent as soon as the cap was popped, milk chocolate, some licorice, malt.

taste is warming, dark and bakers chocolate, malt up front, licorice, some vanilla, bitter in the back, dry ending.

4.03/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Enjoyed this 750ml bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark black-brown hue with a thick dark brown 2-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves a wispy lace.

S: Strong sweet malty aroma.

T: Starts out smooth but than an alcoholic bite hits you followed by sweet malt. Finsihes very sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Really good imperial porter. Great flavors and aromas. A little pricey but worth the experience.
