A 22 oz bottle picked up at Greens on Buford Hwy
A - Pitch black with a finger of head and some carbonation left on the glass
S - coffee, jasmine and honey, and floral hops
T - Sweet, chocolate, with a HUGE honey aftertaste!!! Tasty!!
M - Thin and not much carbonation is the downfall of the mouth
O - Definitely a tasty imperial porter. Jasmine and honey are what makes it unique.

22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a black color with a tall beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a decent amount of lacing.
Smell is of dark roasted malt, dark cocoa, with the jasmine and honey coming through as well.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth with a decently heavy body, very nice. Taste is chocolate truffles and honey up front, bringing sweetness and dark chocolate bitterness at the same time. The jasmine and calendula can be tasted in the finish, nice and subtle. Alcohol is at 9.6%, but with everything going on here, it is well hidden.
Overall, a really good imperial porter, smooth and very easy to drink.

A- Pours a nice inky black, with noticeable bubbles up the sides. Decent head, light lacing on the sides and a light coating over the top 10m later.
S- Very soft at this point, roasted malts, dark chocolates, I cant smell much flowers/jasmine/honey in the glass, but Im defiantly picking it up from the bottle, everything smells pretty good.
T- The roasted malts and chocolates up front as a porter should be, next you get the sweeter side probably the honey and finishes with a slightly bitter dry feeling. Again pretty good.
M- medium to full body, has a decent thick, chewy feeling while still retaining a slippery smoothness over the tongue.
O- When I first opend it I had a hard time picking up the smell, maybe cause its been cellaring since I got it last year. After it aired out some, everything came togather nicely. The carbonation wasn't noticeable while drinking. They did a really good job with this, glad i have 3 more downstairs.
